Book Review: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven: (Or, How I Made Peace with the Paranormal and Stigmatized Zealots and Cynics in the Process) By Corey Taylor

I’m going to start by saying Slipknot and Stone Sour are both in my list of Favorite Bands.

I’ve seen slipknot twice and both times I was in awe. They played amazing music and were cool to watch! However, the lead singer Corey Taylor stood out.

He has great vocals – not to mention great dance moves! One of the first things he did on stage was start dancing.

As soon as the concert was over I went on a Googling Rampage of all of the band members, and that’s how I found Corey’s books.

The first book I read by “The Neck” was “You’re Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look at the Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left.

I loved both of these books. I love Corey’s writing style. His personality shines through his writing so much that you can almost hear him telling you the stories. (I recently found out that he narrates all of his books on Amazon Audible – and I WILL own them!

I love his take on the paranormal and religion alike. He explains his thoughts and beliefs with science – and though I was a little lost it all made sense in the end. Instead of just saying “I believe this and I’m right” he went out of his way to explain why he thinks (and I think honestly) he is right, and I really appreciate that in a person.

His brilliance and humor shine through for sure in his anecdotes! From the Mansion to the Ghost Kids (that’s the most I’m giving away) he paints a picture with each story. Reading it felt like living it. He’s great at sharing his experiences – you almost feel like you are sitting next to him, sipping some coffee and swapping ghost stories.

This book is an awesome read for people who love ghost stories. I recommend it (and his other books) highly!  You can pick up a copy for a great price on Amazon!
