The flow of the story. I listened to it twice even knowing how it was going to end. At least the second time I was able to plan where I would be sobbing my eyes out.
The relationship between Lou and Will
Emotional Rollercoaster ride
I felt reading the book the second time to be better. There are so many ways Will tells Lou he doesn't want to go on. When they are by the castle and he tells her the "secret" he has never told anyone he tells her about the pain and fear he feels being a quad. It's unfortunate that Lou didn't absorb that conversation. This is really a heartbreaker....
I finished this book in record time. My husband had to compete for my attention. I even found myself driving more slowly to prolong the time in the car so that I could listen longer. This book was well written with good humor and amusing characters. Although I found the ending somewhat predictable, it didn't prevent me from enjoying the story. I warn you not to listen in public as I shed more than a few tears at several points during the book. I would listen again and recommend to others.
The intro storyteller almost made me turn the book in,for fear the entire book would be so cheesy. But, after his short chapter, the storytelling was excellent.
I loved this book, its highly addictive and even made me cry! Plus, English humor is always refreshing.
I love to read / listen and I write as well. Hope to have something published some day and see my work here for all to enjoy!
This is a rare book for me these days that I couldn't stop listening to. I listen in my car and when I reached my destination, I'd often sit in my car to continue listening.
The story is bittersweet and made me look at people and events in my own life. Recently losing my mother and having to make "decisions" helped put this book into perspective and readied me that is made the right choices, based on my Mom's wishes, not mine.
The writing is wonderful. The characters are real and dynamic, pulling you in. Humor is woven through, even the hard parts. I'd be sobbing and laughing at the same time.
Totally worth the read regardless of your personal opinion of euthanasia.
It took me a while to get into the book but once I did I couldn't quit listening! I had to find out if he "did it" or not. I knew that was the way it was going to go tho. I loved the story tho and can't wait for the movie!
# 1. will think about it many times after u listen to it.
The last time me and you are together.
you. I was angry at his choice but understood his choice. no matter what happens in life someone will not be happy.
This is a book that will help you see outside the box. and will have you thinking well after the story is over and let you know it can happen to anybody.
