As I was surfing in, I came across a book. Titled Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach.

It is classified under Science. So that would be under non-fiction. What is the book about? Looking at the title, it could either gross you out or make you cry and laugh? I wonder anyone in here had read this book.

The first sentence of the first chapter says:
The human head is of the same approximate size and weight as a roaster chicken...
The book tells about what happened to the cadavers after death. In the eyes of the medical world, the author put it in an oddly manner that aroused the curiousity of the readers, to continue to read further. There are also about body snatching, human dissecting, decapitation and many more.

To anyone who like weirdness and morbidity, should check out this book. I am not sure if it could turn your stomach upside down after reading, you can try at your own risk. Maybe it is not so bad afterall.
