Very respectful and interesting history of the th evolving use of cadavers in academic, medical, and other strange situations but the author was really able to insert humorous into her writing not only to lighten up the mood but to add her own curious and odd questions and comments about the research into cadaver use. 4 stars! Very interesting reading indeed!

I think it is very witty and respectful at the same time and the subject is very interesting to me, since I am an avid reader of mysteries and its fun to learn the how of solving times of death and such. But it is non-fiction and moves sort of slowly. I have to keep switching my reading up with things more fast paced." 1 comment
