Stiff-book-cover“Stiff” by Mary Roach
Nonfiction – 4 stars

This was an enjoyable read oddly enough, as I was cringing as much as I was fascinated. For example, there were numerous proposals for how to determine whether someone was dead, including releasing an insect in someone’s ear. There is indeed another life these bodies live, and this book asks us to consider a number of questions that we otherwise easily overlook.
