Gripping True Stories | Truth is stranger than fiction

"Truth", said Mark Twain, "is stranger than fiction". 

Sometimes you stumble across a story that is so gripping, bizarre or strange that you cannot believe it is a true story. An amazing tale that must be fictional. These are the stories of amazing people experiencing extraordinary things - true events that are as fascinating as a fiction novel.
