    1. Why in Zimmerman s name did I pick this book off the library shelf Don t ask me The Last Days of Dead Celebrities 2006 is so far out from my usual taste in reading matter Truly the last word in celebrity biography is the opinion of Booklist displayed on the front cover The tinsel world of celebrity is some place I never visit I ve never watched I m a celebrity get me out of here on t.vor any of the spin offs in that genre In fact, I rarely watch any t.v I never go to the movies I rarely even rea [...]

    2. It s fun A little bit academic but really reads like an exciting news broadcast I enjoyed the insight into some of my favorite personalities great read for a plane ride.

    3. While some may consider this somewhat macabre to read, this is actually a well written look at some of our most beloved celebrities and how they spent their final days While most of them are most certainly tragic, others are tearjerkers, with all of them being heartbreaking The book covers not only movie and TV stars such as Orson Welles, John Belushi, John Ritter and Lucille Ball but other celebrities such as late sports stars Ted Williams and Lyle Alzado, late musicians Warren Zevon, John Denv [...]

    4. This book wasn t too bad it dealt with celebrities that we know in the 20th Century like John Ritter, for example so that was cool, with the photos also but I think this book would ve been better if it were to the point, and not sort of rambling in the other bios mentioned here While it s great that there are books out there that strive to humanize stars as much as they can, there s also a danger of becoming tabloidesque in the recounting, so it s a fine line All in all not a terrible way to sp [...]

    5. This is a fascinating look at the final days or in some cases a year or of fifteen famous figures who passed away between 1980 and 2003 Fink does an excellent job of forming a picture of the person s life in that time period, so that the death is just a culmination of a life, rather than the sole focus of the story It was quite interesting, even if I didn t know who all the people were I do now, though.

    6. This was a fascinating book on such celeberties as John Denver, Lyle Alzado, John Belushi, and Margaux Hemingway It was interesting to hear of some of the people s quirks, such as Lucille Ball loved to p lay backgammon It seemed most of the celeberties families looking back saw signs that there loved ones were going to die Very interesting book.

    7. An interesting read With one of my parents in this category last days not celebrity I found this book showing that in general we all go the same way sometimes with dignity, sometimes without It was interesting to see how some people choose to go But clearly, than anything else it brings the celebrities to you as real people.

    8. Interesting concept The author interviewed friends and family members of deceased celebrities to share about the last days of their lives From this came touching stories that highlighted how their families and friends didn t think of them as celebrities at all they were simply their loved ones who are dearly missed.

    9. Sounds all People esque , but the writing is very non tabloidy, the celebrities are fairly random, ranging from the violent death of Lennon to the peaceful passing of Orson Welles, who died in bed with his typewriter still balanced on his stomach The stories tended to be about the lives of the deceased than about sensationalizing their deathes Interesting read.

    10. Don t know what I was thinking when I picked up this book It wasn t bad per say but not something I would normally read It does tell you about the last days of some celebrities and how they felt and what they did Nothing really morbid, just pretty much a day in the life of

    11. Mildly interesting, but basically it s all been said before Sorta like reading a bunch of People magazine articles.

    12. Deep and perceptive accounts of John Lennon, Lucille Ball, Tupac Shakur, John Ritter, and 11 others Don t miss the photos eerie picture of John Lennon with his killer in the background.

    13. Kind of hard to read because of the sadness coming from the friends of the dead telling of their last days, but super interesting to read the inside stories.

    14. A great read for biography buffs Just enough insight into the lives of famous folks, near the end, to paint a picture of their entire lives.
