99% of "gun lovers" are very decent, hard working people who treat their wives, children, mothers and fellow employees with respect. They are actually nearly always pretty passive. They are not out looking for trouble and treating other people with disrespect. That part of the book REALLY disappointed me--that you would lump all “gun lovers” in to that description. BTW, not all “gun lovers” are homophobes. I know many homosexuals who carry.
I thought it was over and THEN you threw campers and Christian--two things that describe me--in the mix of homophobes. You sure enjoy using the term “Jesus” and “Jesus Christ” as swear words though. How dare you!!!
You REALLY disappointed me. You think “gun lovers” are narrow minded. Well you just showed how narrow minded you are!!
As a person who’s had a lot of experience with bad health, I felt like the depiction of illness was pretty accurate. Although the person going through it had a remarkable attitude about it. Anyway, I cried a great deal, while enjoying basking in the feels of such a devoted depiction of love.
So if you need a good cry, or want to imagine being loved just as you are I recommend this. And as usual for Ms. Higgins the writing is good and the characters in this one are people I would like to know.
So l leave you with this; how can a book that made me cry leave me with hope for the future?
I love how KH has a tone, voice, I'm not sure what to call it, but it shines out of all of her books. There are always family at its core, genuine interactions, wonderful pets, and my favorite, humor.
This book was one of her best. The timeline shifts back and forth, but is easily followed. The medical terminology was accurate, but not too clinical. Each and every character is complete, well-described, and believable. If I had to give a critique, I can only say I want more. I loved these characters and I enjoyed reading about their interactions.
I'm so glad I read this and am looking forward to rereading it!
She might even believe all of that herself – until she finds out that she’s dying. So whatever time she has left, she’s going to cherish it and make sure that everyone around her knows how deeply they are loved. Especially Josh.
Her plan is simple. Each month after she’s gone, he’ll receive a letter. She’ll remind him to keep on living because true love never dies.
Joshua Park didn’t really live before he met Lauren. She pulled him out of his shell where everything was monochrome and showed him a world filled with all the vibrant colors love. Now she’s dead at only twenty-eight.
Reading her letters each month is equal parts excruciating and heartening. As much as he can’t imagine a world without her, he makes a promise to face life with as much courage as she had facing death. He would try. For Lauren.
I can say without a doubt that Pack Up the Moon is Kristan’s finest book yet! From the very beginning, the emotions provoked by her words roll over you in waves. Anyone who has ever lost a loved one will recognize them instantly – denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. They are all right there and so tangible that it’s almost breathtaking.
The ENTIRE cast of characters is this book will totally steal your heart and make you laugh through all the tears. And in the end, Kristan leaves you feeling a special kind of hope – the kind that makes the struggle worthwhile…
