Book Review: MOBITUARIES: GREAT LIVES WORTH RELIVING by Mo Rocca

mobituaries

This book was a very nice surprise. I wasn’t very familiar with author Mo Rocca when I got the book, but I saw it on a New Releases list and I was immediately interested when I saw what it was about. I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to how much I love pop culture, trivia, and even obituaries of “obscure” people, so I had a feeling this book might be right up my alley.

I’m glad I picked it up because it was very enjoyable to read. I immediately liked Rocca’s writing style and now I’m anxious to explore more of his works. In this book, he uses humor, of course, but what’s nice is that it’s not some absurd collection of silly stories about people who have died. Mo Rocca obviously did a lot of research while writing this book. He not only shows a lot of knowledge of the things he writes about, but he also shows respect for those he features in the stories he shares. While there may be humor, he doesn’t turn their lives into jokes. As a reader, I very much appreciated and respected that.

It was not only a fun book to read, but it was also incredibly informative. I learned far more than I expected to when I picked up the book. I’m very glad I read it and highly recommend it to others.

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for a fair review.
