    I truly wanted to enjoy this book I read this book for a book club and at first I thought it was a good choice It sounded like something I would really want to sink my teeth into, however, I just did not find it interesting It is appalling that I was 90% of the way through and telling myself, don t worry, she must die soon and it will all be over I feel like a terrible person I appreciate that Will Schwalbe s mother appears to have been a woman who championed many valuable causes and did g I truly wante...

    The book discussions were cursory, at best I hadn t intended to find myself reading a memoir of a parent s pancreatic cancer call me oversensitive and a sucker , but books like this make me FURIOUS The author seems like a nice man and all, but what exactly is the draw for readers It s his personal memoir and story of his mother, and it s actually really, really boring The book club thing is a gimmick Schwalbe works in publishing, after all i.e., he had connections and help getting it pu The book discussions were cursory, at best I hadn t intended to find myself reading a memoir of a parent s pancreatic cancer call me oversensitive and a sucker , but books like this make me FURIOUS The author seems like a nice man and all, but what exactly is the draw for readers It s his personal memoir and story of his mother, and it s actually really, really boring The book club thing is a gimmick Schwalbe works in publishing, after all i.e., he had connections and help getting it publish...

    Reading isn t the opposite of doing it s the opposite of dying This is an amazing memoir Mary Anne Schwalbe was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2007, and she and her son spend time sharing books and holding informal book club chats, partly because they were both avid readers and partly to take Mary Anne s mind off of her illness So it s a book about books, but it s also about the lessons Will learned from his mom I would recommend this book to any book lovers, but also to those who are Reading isn t the opposite of doing it s the opposite of dying This is an amazing memoir Mary Anne Schwalbe was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2007, and she and her son spend time sharing books and holding informal book club c...

    There were so many problems with this book First, the author so worshiped his mother that the reader never got to know the real her She was on the board of numerous international organizations that help refugees, orphans, and women She traveled extensively, often coming home quite ill She seemed to take this as part of her working overseas and refused to take the full course of antibiotics The author reports this as if it is heroic rather than foolish She also supposedly talks to everyo There were so many problems with this book First, the author so worshiped his mother that the reader never got to know the real her She was on the board of numerous international organizations that help refugees, orphans, and women She traveled extensively, often coming home quite ill She seemed to take this as part of her working overseas and refused to take the full course of antibiotics The author reports this as if it is heroic rather than foolish She also supposedly talks to ever...

    An absolutely wonderfully written book that is not just the personal experience of Will Schwalbe This book explores the power of books, reading them, discussing them and intagrating them into our lives and the lives of others I think we all have an understanding of how important our friends and family are, but this book brings home the importance of letting those people know not just how much you love them, but how proud you are of them or how much you respect them and what they have done or t An absolutely wonderfully written book that is not just the personal experience of Will Schwalbe This book explores the power of books, reading them, discussing them and intagrating them into our lives and the lives of others I think we all have an understanding of how important our friends and family are, but this book brings home the importance of letting those people know not just how much you love the...
