    I love books like this, interesting little packets of odd knowledge and back stories that help you commit it to memory. Exceptthis is not one of those books.There is a lot of "it's been said over the ages" or "theory suggests" and just a general lack of research. It's also not written well and I caught one too many mistakes to ignore. Oh, and the author or whomever it was that was "speaking" to me, you are completely and utterly useless, GTFO of this book, I'm here to learn not listen to your fecking memories. I was either bored, skimming, disinterested, or reading something I knew already. There were two chapters I read carefully and liked a lot, out of the entire book. **My husband seemed to like it more than I did, that or yesterday was just a really boring day in our house and he was desperate to block out the sounds of our rowdy toddlers. He read it cover to cover and told me I should read it when I asked him how it was. It's not the first thing we will disagree on, and it certainly won't be the last.

    I love facts. I love learning them, I love reading them to people, I love just having them available. But it's pretty crappy when the facts are totally overshadowed by poor grammar, nonsensical sentences and poor research.This book needs an editor. And if it had an editor, it needs a better editor.

    Not one to shy away from books about the macabre and weird, I grabbed this one with high hopes of adding to my mental library of strange and unusual. I got lucky.Within the 13 chapters here, the covered items are ships & wrecks, creepy museums, people behaving badly, Hollywood stories, plants & insects and not to be left out, even ghost encounters.This is a relatively small book that packs a huge punch of random facts and things that have creeped into our minds due to urban legends and even true stories.I love this book, and though I haven't read the first, I will be looking for it and highly suggest this one to anyone's library of oddities.

    Entertaining, but I didn't like that the book was told from the point of view of the editor, so that all the facts were reported with the editor's witticisms and cheesy lines. Really cool facts in here though.

    A fun collection of strange facts, superstitions, and odd occurrences. Divided up into related chapters, with an intro to each from the author talking about her own experiences.

    A collection of facts on various subjects from true crime and killers to odd creatures. Some of the facts were more interesting than others and several of the pieces I already knew. Still, it made for a 'light' read at Christmas.
