All the Living and the Dead by Hayley Campbell

All the Living and the Dead (2022) by Hayley Campbell was entertaining and informative yet hard to read sometimes because of the dark subject matter, because what is more dark than death? (Huge trigger warning for discussion of deceased children). The book will appeal to those who have a morbid fascination about different aspects of death, from embalming and cremation to what it’s like to be a modern-day executioner, but it could also appeal to anyone trying to come to terms with their own mortality and what your options are for the end of your life.
