Mobituaries: Great Lives Worth Reliving

Mo Rocca, writer and beloved TV correspondent, has provided entertaining and thoroughly researched obituaries for interesting people who were otherwise left without much said about them!

While the pace, at times, felt slow and plodding, the information was so rich and descriptive. I would definitely say this book is better served as a chapter a day type of read. A coffee table book, maybe. Trying to sit and read through more than one chapter at a time just felt like cramming for a history test. Taking the time to read a chapter here and there with breaks in between help the vast information sink in. He definitely gets credit for spicing up his wealth of knowledge with lots of funny quips, and truly silly comparisons.

Overall, I enjoyed the idea behind this book, and the things I learned about each person were amusing and enlightening.

Thank you to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for a free copy of the this book to read and review.
