    >"What are you reading?" That's the question Will Schwalbe asks his mother, Mary Anne, as they sit in the waiting room of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. In 2007, Mary Anne returned from a humanitarian trip to Pakistan and Afghanistan suffering from what her doctors believed was a rare type of hepatitis. Months later she was diagnosed with a form of advanced pancreatic cancer, which is almost always fatal, often in six months or less. This is the inspiring true story of a son and his mother.

    Mark says: "A good book, but not really for me."
    "One of the best books I've read in a while!"

    What made the experience of listening to The End of Your Life Book Club the most enjoyable?

    Schwalbe and his mother read and commented on many books that I have read; their comments were short but very insightful. Even though Schwalbe's mother is dying, at no time does the book wallow in self-pity, nor does it become a downer. To the contrary, the woman is strong and positive in the face of a terminal disease and therefore doesn't allow the reader to feel sorry for her. Her son, Will, also does not provoke sorrow.
