My husband actually grabbed this from the store a short while ago. It sat for a while before I read it. IT is kind of a historical recap of the things that just make you go "huh?" and stop and think. You would assume that with the advances of today's technology that some of these things could be finally put to rest. All in all it was a great, quick read, of some of the world's most fascinating people and the strange circumstances of their all too short or mysterious lives.

Great summary of some enduring mysteries.

I find it interesting that even in this day and age, when there is so much technology available, some things just will not give up their secrets.

Maybe it is good to have at least a little mystery available in a time when things can be so cut and dried and "scientific".

Several of the stories have reminded be that "Hey, that is something you always wondered about", so now I will probably go and read way too much on some interesting stories.

My mother picked up a newer edition of this bookazine, which is chock full of true unsolved mysteries. Most of them are things I've heard of before (Black Dahlia, JonBenet Ramsey, Amelia Earhart, Anastasia), but some were new to me. Overall a really interesting read, though I would've liked more than the 2-4 pages allotted to each mystery.

An enjoyable magazine/book. Gave just enough to intrigue...if you want more or something in depth on any particular story you would need to find another resource.

My latent print examiner friend commented on the upside down fingerprint in the cover of my copy...she just wants to know why that happens? So annoying.

A fun 'easy' read . A few of the unsolved mysteries have been solved since publication but it doesn't take away from the entertainment value. Not heavy or in-depth, just a light overview on a quick list.

like the negative space that may dominate the skeleton of a building, what is left out of these sketches sends me looking for more detail, further research. It is like a concise encyclopedia, as someone already said. There is more to be found if You care to look out.

Interesting, but just a short article on each case; more like a concise encycolpedia of the subject than a magazine book. Disappointing because I usually like these bookzines.

Enthralling and informative read; offers several eerie stories one could spend hours researching more about. Of course, as the title suggests, this book offers more questions than answers.
