This book is really weird. Interesting and different, but not really my type. It's just a bunch of stories in one and the author never really develops on them.

This book is morbid, dark, and at times very silly. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

For readers in grades five and up who like ghost stories this book is an excellent choice. In this truly creepy book an unsuspecting teenage Good Samaritan ends up in a graveyard full of teenage ghosts of many eras who all want to tell him their "death stories". The author's use of accurate historical details and gift of character development make these ghosts' stories vivid and memorable.

Just the right amount of creepiness. This is an interesting collection of very different death stories from Victorian times to the present. The stories are fictional, but also contain a thread of truth. I didn't want to put it down!
