The New York Times Book of the Dead 320 Print and 10,000 Digital Obituaries of Extraordinary People

First looking at the title of this book would leave many readers to move on and not delve into this magnificent recording of history.

What makes this volume speak to us in unusual tones is that the obituaries are recorded in the parlance and language at the time of death of the subject individual from the time the New York Times began publication to Each obituary is a short synopsis of that person's life to include the person's origins, triumphs, failures and influence in that person's field.

Each obituary is written in the style and language of the day. In reading these well written historical renderings gives the reader a first look of history at each of these famous individuals.

This book is an excellent first write of history and gives the reader a bird's eye view of initial historic importance. Excellent idea and editing by William McDonald as seen through the publication of a newspaper in which it prints only the news that fit to print.

It was a really good interview and I immediately ordered a copy of this book. I've only just started to dive in -- it's huge -- but the selection people is very intriguing.

And the writing is so well-done. Here's a line from Mark Twain's obituary: The family was called and gathered about the bedside watching in silence which was long unbroken.

It was the end. At 22 minutes past 6, with the sunlight just turning red as it stole into the window, in perfect silence he breathed his last.

He was in his 75th year. I haven't yet accessed the exclusive website that is part of the package. See all 59 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

Too many poets delude themselves by thinking the mind is dangerous and must be left out. Well, the mind is dangerous and must be left in.

Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them. I suppose it's an early form of participation in what goes on.

Listening children know stories are there. When their elders sit and begin, children are just waiting and hoping for one to come out, like a mouse from its hole.

Barnum - "The boy was early taught that if he would succeed in the world, he must work hard. When he was only six years of age he drove cows to and from pasture, weeded the kitchen garden at the back of the humble house in which he was born, and as he grew older rode the plow horse, and whenever he had an opportunity attended school.

This book is huge, but easy to navigate. The chapters are broken down into categories of fame variety like Athletes, Scientists, Leaders, etc This would make a wonderful gift for anyone who loves history or is even a little more into the darker morbid side of life and especially the more difficult person to buy for.

This is a great coffee table book, everyone that has come over since this showed up has looked at it with odd wonder and they couldn't help but pick it up, then they couldn't put it down!

I would love to one day see this book or similar in a funeral home. This is a fantastic addition to my book collection and I now want more just like it.

Jan 15, Michael Durbin rated it really liked it. Best coffee table book ever. I expect to chip away at this for years to come of enjoyable, fascinating, educational reading, one mini-biography at a time.

Jan 03, Debby rated it it was amazing. This very long book is very thorough. NYT prides themselves by hiring the best writers to do obits and it shows.

It took a month of reading, but this is really fabulous and readable. Sasha is a prominent news anchor, and the main suspects include her co-anchor and her lesbian lover.

What is odd is that the body disappears on its way to the hospital, so the book is set up so that there is a possibility that Sasha might still be living.

The romantic interest is Cary, a woman who works at the news station where Sasha works. The sex scenes in this book are so poorly written, it was embarrassing to read them.

It made me wonder why they were even included. This is definitely not an example of the Romantic Suspense genre.

The ending is also so far-fetched and sounds like something out of a Hannibal Lecter novel, I would not be surprised if The Silence of the Lambs came out around the time this was being written It's a page-turner, but I don't feel at all compelled to continue with the series.

It felt very much like a book that was written by a man, for men. Stone definitely thinks like a guy, and some of his thoughts are ones that as a woman, I'd rather not be privy to.

Detective on limited duty due to a bullet he took to his knee and has decided after an evening out to walk home in order to get some exercise to it when, in a case of being in either the right place at the right time, or wrong place at the wrong time, he witnesses a woman falling from a building.

It turns out to be a rather famous TV personality who was scheduled to take her place as a co-anchor on a prestigious In this Stuart Woods book, we find Stone Barrington in his first outing.

It turns out to be a rather famous TV personality who was scheduled to take her place as a co-anchor on a prestigious network the next night.

When he arrives at her apartment he hears someone leaving it rapidly, but when he gives chase his knee gives out and he loses the person he was chasing.

However, what is set up to be a relatively open-and-shut homicide case is quickly muddied by the arrival of a freelance journalist who got footage of her at the scene showing that she was still alive when put in the ambulance, by her diary that shows that she was severely depressed at times, and then by her disappearance - no body, no crime.

Barrington's obsession with finding out the truth in this case, as opposed to just finding someone to stick with the crime, quickly puts him at odds with the rest of the department with whom he never fit in all that well to begin with and he soon finds himself railroaded out on a medical disability retirement.

However, he has a background in law and decides to take the bar exam and set himself up that way. The twists just keep on coming as taxi drivers start getting murdered around the city, and Barrington begins to get notes purportedly from the missing star.

I started to read these books out of order when I picked up "Reckless Abandon" and then "Two Dollar Bill," then I decided to hold off until I put my hands on all of them and start at the beginning; I'm glad I have, because I can now look forward to a long line of these most excellent thrillers.

Woods knows how to put together a great mystery and keep it exciting! Mystery with explicit content and derogatory language.

One could label this book as romantic suspense from a male POV and written by a male author, however its graphic sex scenes have little romance and aren't really necessary in the book plot.

The women in this book are shown as sex objects, greedy for power and money, under a strain weak, crying and suicidal.

Men fare not better, presented as cock-driven fools, annoying sexists, weirdos or psychos. Woods gives us a pathetic and pessimistic visi Mystery with explicit content and derogatory language.

Woods gives us a pathetic and pessimistic vision of the s New York. The blue force is a corrupt organization that demands absolute loyalty and doesn't care about factual guilt or innocence, but its own public image.

The sensation- and ratings-driven television is again a place where everybody screws everybody for advancement, prime time and money. The medical world is also not spared a blow when a hospital staff would rather conceal a rape by its intern from the knowledge of the victim and the public rather than suffer the consequences of the damaged public image, the trial and the financial compensation for the victim.

There is no real loyalty, friendship and trust, almost everyone is calculating and scheming. Despite its flaws this book is quite an enjoyable read, and you could always hope that the series would improve with the next instalment.

I have been reading Stuart Woods books for a long time. I especially like the Stone Barrington series but not necessarily in order.

I started Son of Stone and didn't like it at all but I had to finish it when I found that in order to make a later book make sense I had to find out what happened to Arrington.

What I have had a problem with is the dialogue. I just doesn't set right - not bad enough to make me stop reading but it just doesn't always seem quite right somehow.

The dialogue seemed to flow more naturally - mixing it in with the narrative. Maybe because it was written in and Mr. Woods has changed his style of writting - I don't know, but I really loved this book.

Stone Barrington isn't quite the self-assured rich attorney at this point and he isn't hopping into bed with every female character.

You see the begging of his relationship with Dino and the law firm. The storyline is a little unique and kept me interest right up to the last page.

I'll keep reading these books, but by far this is the best. Loved the start of this series!!! I can't believe I hadn't read Woods sooner!

Boy have I been missing out! This story had a lot of suspense! The book is very fast paced from the very beginning when a news reporter falls to what is thought to be her death.

It is soon discovered that she is not dead but alive and still breathing. The ambulance is called and rushes her to the hospital.

Along the way to the hospit Loved the start of this series!!! Along the way to the hospital though, the ambulance car is in a car accident. Soon the ambulance car and the woman go missing!

Did she fake her own death? Even detective Stone Barrington's love interest has a major secret of her own I did not see that one coming!

Sex with ill patients? The body of Sash Nijinsky, television anchorwoman, falls from the penthouse of a high rise apartment in front of Stone Barrington setting in motion a series of events that change the course of his life.

A terrific start to a series, this book sets up nicely the events that lead to Stone Barringtons career as an attorney and investigator. It was full of action and suspense and Stone was always in the middle of it all.

I'm looking forward to the next book. View all 4 comments. This was my first by Woods. I was really impressed with the quick, easy, and enjoyable reading.

Glad I found a new author with an extensive list. View all 11 comments. Serious language and sex in this book, but story moves along and it's interesting.

Stone sees newscaster, Sasha Nijinsky, fall from her balcony and ends up leading the investigation. So, I read this book with my father as I'm trying to get him into reading more and I know he likes this author.

Also, I figured I could learn what kinds of books he does like. Unfortunately, I didn't like it. While I will give some leeway since it was written in the 80s, I feel like I should also make excuses because it was written by a man.

Wow, it is so obvious. There is just some weirdly written things and moments that made me groan, roll my eyes, and wish I could put the book down.

I wil So, I read this book with my father as I'm trying to get him into reading more and I know he likes this author. I will say, the mystery was interesting.

I honestly wanted to know if Sasha was dead or alive, if she committed suicide or if it was murder. The mystery is what kept me going. What sucks, is that I probably only needed to read the first 10 chapters and the last 5 chapters in order to understand the mystery.

The rest is about Stone's life. Which I get, as my dad says "sets up the next 10 books" but I wanted to enjoy this one, not be set up to enjoy the next ten, because dear stars I will not be reading them.

I also thought the mystery was too easily figured out I couldn't connect to the characters, because I just didn't like them.

How are Dino and Stone friends?? Stone is kind of pretentious and is led around by his dick, while honestly no other characters are even worth mentioning.

Also, what the heck is the difference between dead and "New York Dead" besides location??? Integrity and good looks.

He totally loves it. The webkey is a cool plus and the website is really easy to use. If you are a lover of history and writing then this book is a must have.

You can see how writing has changed over time by the obituaries that are written. Great men and women of each era are celebrated within its pages, opening up new worlds of information, knowledge, and majesty.

This is a wonderful collection of obits. Unfortunately, I didn't like it. While I will give some leeway since it was written in the 80s, I feel like I should also make excuses because it was written by a man.

Stone is kind of pretentious and is led around by his dick, while honestly no other characters are even worth mentioning.

Also, what the heck is the difference between dead and "New York Dead" besides location??? Integrity and good looks. Seems like a recipe for a great series.

Pretty good read with some twists but I kept wanting more One thing I noticed When a series has as many books as the Stone Barrington series, you probably should look into the series.

So I did and read the first in the series. It was an easy read, with a lot of dialogue and a good story line.

The story revolves around the missing of a up and coming anchorwomen Sasha Nijinsky. Why did she get thrown or jump from a balcony?

Where is she now? Why are so many men and women involved in the missing or death of this women? I guess you must read to find out.

The When a series has as many books as the Stone Barrington series, you probably should look into the series. The story moves along well, with many characters and a few twist especially about three quarters through and in the end.

New York Dead is loaded with: Sex, suspense, money, and power. The Barrington series starts off pretty solid.

This may have been the last good Stone Barrington book. It actually had a plot with several twists and suspense leading up to the final pages with the final revelations.

In this book, Stone was still a police detective and hadn't adopted the smug wealthy lifestyle which becomes the consummate profile of later Stone books.

He actually experienced a brief look at financial disaster, and entered the book wearing ordinary clothing.

His adoption of expensive clothing and absorbing the finer lifestyle This may have been the last good Stone Barrington book. His adoption of expensive clothing and absorbing the finer lifestyle was fine for this novel since it exhibited character development in reaction to other characters and plot movement.

The character development of Stone in later books has all but ceased, along with strong suspense plots. Cary Hilliard was a landmark character for Stone's reference.

The book fits the formulated page size of nearly all Stuart Woods books. Then again, the setting is the earlys, and the racism, sexism, and derogatory insults that are freely thrown about seem so out-of-date.

What a Piece of Shit! From the name of the protagonist to his character description I tried to be fair and give it a shot, but I can not and will not waste another minute of my life reading this crap.

I am amazed so many people like this book. If anyone would care to explain how they can read it all the way through and enjoy it, I would appreciate it.

The last 6 chapters held me, and I couldn't put it down, even though we were late meeting friends for dinner. I read a few of the later Stone Barrington novels and found the writing to be good, but the story lines somewhat bland and over the top.

I though it was worth finding out if the first novels were better and read this first effort. Are the early novels better? Judging by this one, yes.

The story begins with Stone as a NYC detective. We meet Stone's partner Dino, who appears in later books.

T I read a few of the later Stone Barrington novels and found the writing to be good, but the story lines somewhat bland and over the top.

The level of mystery, danger and tension is far more interesting than the later "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" novels.

If there is a complaint, it is that too many pivotal events in Stone's life are packed into this book. We'll give the second one a try.

When I started this series I didn't know that it was part of a series so I jumped around but today I thought it would be a good idea to start this series from the beginning and because my son keeps telling me that this was a really good crime and I needed to start the Stone Barrington series right from the beginning.

Well just like the others I love Stone but now I know why he became a lawyer instead of staying a cop but also how his mind works.

He's quite smart and love his ex-partner Dino. He' When I started this series I didn't know that it was part of a series so I jumped around but today I thought it would be a good idea to start this series from the beginning and because my son keeps telling me that this was a really good crime and I needed to start the Stone Barrington series right from the beginning.

He's such an Italian and their banter is fun too. As for the crime, it was a bit creepy to find out certain things that one persn did but also sad as to who really committed the crime and why.

Now I can continue in the right order and have some fun with Stone and his crimes because even though he's a lawyer doesn't mean that it stops him from being the good cop.

Oct 21, Steve H rated it it was ok. How on earth did the author or his proof readers allow such complete bullshit get into a book.

Sep 18, Diana Evans rated it did not like it Shelves: One of the rare books I just couldn't get through. Main plot was fairly good but the sexist, ignorant detectives language was horribly off-putting.

And the sex scenes were poorly written. Maybe it was a book of its time but it's not a time or culture, really I long for.

I think with a different vocal actor Everyone is always telling Stone Barrington that he's too smart to be a cop, but it's pure luck that places him on the streets in the dead of night, just in time to witness the horrifying incident that turns his life inside out.

I think with a different vocal actor this would have been a better offering but this one did rate 3 stars. Mr Woods isn't quite like Patterson or Baldacci Sep 08, Carol rated it really liked it.

I was drawn in immediately to this novel and enjoyed the characters. I will follow Stone in his journey with 2. People bored with detective novels that always return to the status quo.

I find that I am less and less gripped by detective books as the years go by. They tend to be all of a likeness, the same thing happening so often even by different authors that it's hard to tell them apart.

For the most part this was true about this novel as well. There was nothing amazingly original about it, the crime was familiar enough to be predictable and there was a lot of the tired tropes I dislike about this genre in evidence in the writing.

So why is it that this is a five star review I find that I am less and less gripped by detective books as the years go by.

So why is it that this is a five star review where so many other detective books fall below the mark? The answer is simple. One of the key gripes I have about this genre is the lack of change from one book to the next.

Every author seems to be obsessed with returning to the status quo at the end of every novel which puts the reader or me at least in detective Groundhog Day only without the laughs that Bill Murray had.

This novel had a great deal of change and character growth right the way through the novel and the main character is certainly not at all where he started the novel which is genuinely exciting for me.
