I loved this book. Very real characters and portrait of the western Plains. Lovely.


A beautifully written book that explores our perceptions of and traditions around death and dying.

This is a book that I‘ve put off reading but am so glad that I finally got to it as it‘s a book that I‘m sure I‘ll return to again. Dr. Gawande takes a much needed look at the issues of care for the elderly and at end of life decisions with such compassion. Not an easy subject or an easy read but an important one that will prompt many meaningful thoughts and discussions.

Oh my goodness. This book gave me all the feels. It was funny, sad, and heartwarming. A lot of it reminded me of when my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer (she survived) so it hits close to home. This was the first book in a long time that I had a lot of difficulty putting down. Most definitely 5 ⭐ rating

Everybody, please give your furbabies an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. My beautiful Nala baby passed away unexpectedly. She was the sweetest kitty and would be perfectly content to sit in my lap all day. This is the 2nd kitty I‘ve lost in six months. 😞

There were many parts of this book that moved me so; this is one of them.

“But we do know what to do. Just think: If it were my body, what would I want? One of the worst things, when we‘re grieving, is the sense that I didn‘t do enough. But if you get in and help, you won‘t have that sense of helplessness.”
