There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I must admit though that the sections where she goes into the details of where she was moving from and why, what people did, what things look like made me look the focus sometimes, I skipped those sections until the parts where she talks about her clients, that's where the message was, at least for me.
But not to be too negative, it was certainly an interesting reading for me, I enjoyed it and it again reminded me some of the basics, which you need to turn into day in day out to stay on a reasonable path, so that at the end of your life you just do not regret that your time on earth was wasted on unimportant things. Sharing of that aspect is certainly something the author did very well.
The main conclusion is what I think is THE most important thing to grasp and live - for all of us: to be happy. Bronnie does that masterfully. First, through sharing her experiences with people who realized they are going to die soon and then by telling us her own very painful story, at the end of which she emerged triumphant. She weavs her story slowly yet powerfully. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
Reading some of the other reviews, I was surprised by how this book has been judged. I think it may have been the expectations of some readers that have created disappointment, rather than the book itself. Why some reviewers condemn it for being too much about the author's life, is beyond me. IT IS A MEMOIR! Memoirs are supposed to be about the life of the person writing it! The by-line and the summary of the book were clear that it is about the author's life.
The author also shares very personal stories about her time with dying people, in a manner that clearly shows she has a sincere heart. I have experienced the loss of my wife and brother to cancer and I think she writes of similar situations with compassion, wisdom, and obvious first-hand experience.
This is easily the most beautiful book I have read in decades. I recommend it highly and hope that those who read all of the reviews here will approach the memoir with an open mind, not letting preconceived expectations stop you from enjoying the special treat that this book definitely is. There is much to learn from it.
