This is a very sweet and heartwarming story from a first time author that needed to be narrated by the author herself. On first glance you assume it's a story about cancer and while it is in part it is more a love story between Kelly Corrigan and her father. I believe that this book was first intended as a gift from Ms Corrigan to her aging and sick father. I first became acquainted with this author when an essay both written and read by Ms Corrigan was circulated on the internet. There is something about her voice and her style that this book needs to achieve its full depth. Her vernacular and her syntax is very important to the experience of the story.
Given that, if you have no prior experience with Kelly Corrigan and no expectations then this book is well worth your time and money. The narrator is good enough just not who I'd hoped for and as I said before the book is a sweet love story. Can we ever have too many sweet love stories?
