    1. I won this book in a giveaway, and I danced for delight when it landed on my porch. I love, love, love graveyards and anyone who loves them. However, then I shook myself and prepared to give the book a fair and objective read so that I could write a review that did it justice. It was hard. Loren Rhoads writes well and easily draws you into her delight in the history and humanity of graveyards. I immediately wished for more pictures of the features that she describes so well (It's hard to imagine [...]


    2. This is my new book, so I'm biased. I'm glad to answer questions about cemeteries and travel, if you have any.


    3. This is my second reading of this book and as I’m a confirmed taphophile – lover of cemeteries – I devoured and enjoyed it all over again. What makes people want to visit cemeteries? They’re just full of dead people right?Well, yes they are but they also contain much more than that as far as I’m concerned. They’re repositories of local history, a wildlife haven, a place of serenity and peace and also perhaps a place for you to meet your ancestors.The author, Loren Rhoads, who is a he [...]


    4. I finally finished "Wish You Were Here: Adventures in Cemetery Travel" by Loren Rhoads. Wish You Were Here is not your typical cemetery/grave hunting book where the author guides you through the cemeteries and chronicles the graves of noteworthy, famous or infamous personalities buried in them. This book is is a collection of about thirty-four travel essays based around cemeteries around the world. Loren relays her impression on those cemeteries with thought provoking insightful commentary. With [...]


    5. I bought this book as a present for someone I know who is a cemetery historian, but it sat for so long as I waited to see her again that I finally read it myself before handing it off. I enjoy checking out cemeteries, and have been to several she covered in the book. My 2nd favorite cemetery was included (Green-Wood in NYC), as was one near my hometown which my dad and his friends got drunk in growing up! They probably did some of the damage Rhoads was so bummed about witnessing. Jerks!I really [...]


    6. I'm really bad about updating my . Read this a few months ago. I have enjoyed Loren's work (fiction, essays, blog) ever since we met in a writing class some years ago, and this collection is no exception. Perhaps I didn't read it the way the author intended (front to back), but I loved dipping into the essays at random, savoring a visit to one cemetery or another, often at bedtime.


    7. I'm biased about this book, but given that it's a collection of essays about visiting cemeteries around the world, how could it not be good anyway?


    8. Probably a good book just not the right reader.I love the idea of this book. I love graveyards and often wonder about the people gravestones represent. Who were they, who misses them, who comes to see them after they are dead, and other such musings. I love the author's opening and explaining how the book came into being. After the first two stories, I just felt like the book wasn't for bedtime reading.I almost always read books while going to bed. The book reads like a textbook sometimes. You r [...]
