When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

>"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.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

More about the people. Found that the only connection she had with people was stories (books) other people's adventure rather then their own

What was most disappointing about Will Schwalbe’s story?

Only connection was books

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Already said

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The End of Your Life Book Club?
