Famous Last Words, Fond Farewells, Deathbed Diatribes, and Exclamations Upon Expiration

Famous Last Words, Fond Farewells, Deathbed Diatribes, and Exclamations Upon ExpirationI picked this up in a little gift shop while on vacation Quick, interesting, funny and touching A nice little pass along book. One of those books that I bought on a whim and read in a day Not a whole lot to say about this book that isn t evident from the title, but it s filled with fun facts and I consider it a cool coffee table read Another one of my cute, crazy reads to leave lying around my place for people to pick up and peruse at random. Kind of just a read for the heck of it I was interested if finding quotes and stuff for my blog at first, but I just ended up reading the book to get it over with So it s not like the book was bad, I just had no desire in it or heart to continue I did read every word and imagined the person uttering these words as they died, and it was like a historical journey back into the lives of famous people or people who gave something to the world It was a final tribute to the unknown mystery of death, something we all will find out eventually. This was a great impulse buy I loved reading about some of the last words that famous people have said This book has last words from all types of famous people Presidents and other government officials, actors and actresses, musicians, etc Some of the famous last words were poignant and some were really funny The only thing I didn t necessarily like was that the author threw in a couple of eulogies of famous dead people I wasn t nearly as interested in someone s eulogy as I was in what that person said right before they died Otherwise, great read a quick lighthearted read, despite the morbid format found the deathbed quotes both funny insightful at times i will be giving a few of them a google to see how their whole life played out prior to their death do wish there was variety in the quotes when it came to female poc lgbtqia rep which i know sounds weird when it s a book about last words , but honestly the weirdness comes from the fact that it shouldn t need to be said cis white male sports stars aren t the only ppl who die last time i checked here are some other important people that should ve been featured martha p johnsonharvey milkjudy garlandfrida kahlojimi hendrixfreddie mercuryjanis joplinkurt cobainselenamahatma gandhijust to name a few Kind of fun to read these one page summaries with the final words of a very wide range of personages poets, philosophers, athletes, criminals, politicians, movie stars, soldiers, pilots, tycoons, and the condemned The longest last words are by Erwin Rommel, Socrates, Lou Gehrig, John Brown, Virginia Woolf, while the three pages of Most Annoying Last Words goes to infamous mobster Dutch Schultz recorded by a police stenographer as he lay dying in Newark City Hospital after being ambushed by assassins 1935 in a restaurant.Too bad the 177 pages does not have an index of these authors so I can easily go back and find the full page of, e.g., Socrates in 399 BC, Nero who in 64 AD committed suicide, or Lou Gehrig s public words to his fans as he was dying No alphabetizing of the authors quoted None of key Last key words So can we guess who were mostly criminals, murderers, assassins Francis Crowley, Ida Straus, Horace Tabor, Charles Guiteau, Charles Fox, Paul Wellstone, Wilson Mizner, Rob Hall, Robert Maxwell quoted from a satirical magazine Here lies Robert Maxwell He lies everywhere else , Moe Berg, Clarence Barron, Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Robert Scott, Ramon Narvaez, Connie Evans, John Lamb, Brian Sweeney, Carl Panzram, George Appel, Martha Beck, Jessica Dubroff, Edmund Gwenn, or Arthur Flegenheimer Some of these are so witty I m like, how were they thinking of something other than dying Not enough women in here. Gave up halfway through this slim collection I received as a Christmas gift Quotes weren t all that interesting, which didn t necessarily surprise me just because you re famous and someone captures your last words doesn t mean they ll be memorable.
