5.0 out of 5 stars Guaranteed food for thought, December 27, 2009
This review is from: Death & Sex (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Know how you always want to have a generic gift or two on hand around the holidays, just in case you forgot somebody who has just shown up with one for you? I'm not suggesting DEATH & SEX would be appropriate for children, but for adults old and young, this would be an interesting gift to have on hand. (Well, use your judgment if you are giving it to somebody else's husband or wife, just in case they might misunderstand the intention behind your gift.)

This book has a quiet elegance about it, like a small box of very fine chocolates. The embossing of the book is a delight to the touch as well as the eye. And it's interesting, and telling, to see which half of the book a person is drawn to reading first. No matter which one it is, Death or Sex, the reader is in for a thought-provoking read. I can almost guarantee you that it's not going to be quite what you expect, no matter which topic you tackle first. I quite enjoyed both of them, for different reasons, and there is a synergy between the two essays that invites ever-deeper ponderings of the meaning of it all. On the whole, this book is quite satisfying, and a keeper.
