A very good historical fiction dealing with a family of 4 Jewish siblings. After their father died unexpectedly, the kids they went to see a woman who was known to foretell when a person would die. Two of them headed west. Three die tragically. The novel touches on topics of homosexuality, suicide, family traditions and mental illnesses. I really enjoyed the story and most of the characters.

This book reminded me a lot of Lily and the Octopus. I will always think of cancerous growths as octopi from now on. I asked AI for an image a man with an octopus sitting on his chest and this is what it gave me. I suppose it fits. Brown skin, and the octopus seems to be spreading itself everywhere.

This is a raw, heartbreaking and beautiful story about a neurosurgeon becoming the patient when he is diagnosed with cancer. He chose to keep going and meet it head on, living authentically until he took his last breath. His wife wrote such a beautiful epilogue in addition to the story he wrote of this journey. A book about courage, loss, death, and living. Highly recommend.

What an important book. This was so beautifully written and truly unique. I don‘t think I‘ve really read anything like this before. I love Clover and how insightful she is. The growth in this book is so beautiful and touching. This book is one that really makes you think and reflect and will inspire you to live each moment like it‘s your last.

4✨ This book destroyed me! It is the prequel to “They Both Die At The End” where the start of the mysterious Death-Cast, who can predict people‘s deaths. The very first call went to one of the POV characters that we follow. This is so sad and so heartfelt that I honestly just could not function after I finished it. I really liked how side characters were all interconnected. Fiction aside the connection between the main POVs seems highly improbable
