Since we are faced with the possibility of death, I decided to give in to this macabre ambiance! Therefore, I read Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?: Big Questions from Tiny Mortals about Death by Caitlin Doughty. It is by far the most unique book I’ve read this year so far! This a nonfiction written by a mortician (you might’ve stumbled upon her YouTube channel). I’ve been watching Doughty’s videos for quite some time and the subject of them has always interested me, so naturally, when I got my hands on one of her books I devoured it in one sitting!
“We can’t make death fun, but we can make learning about it fun. Death is science and history, art and literature. It bridges every culture and unites the whole of humanity!”
This book contains many questions that people (mainly children) have asked about death. Not only is Doughty funny, but her book is also educational.
Since I’m not in the midst of reading a few “larger”/”emotionally consuming” novels, this easy nonfiction came like a godsend.
I certainly recommend this book to everyone! It contains many of the most asked questions about death and burials. I myself am fascinated by the subject and I believe everyone has a tiny bit of curiosity about this subject. So, do yourself a favor and give this one a read!
