Peace Out

Peace Out tracks four distinct story lines - or, perhaps more accurately put, case studies - about assisted suicide. Each story/case study goads the reader to see the topic from different angles, some pro, some con. Would a future in which assisted suicide is not only legal, but inviting and even publicly encouraged, be utopian? dystopian? Whitley's stories are filled with enough detail to help move the discussion beyond superficial relativism. The answer is not simply that it depends o

I enjoyed the various perspectives regarding assisted suicide. The author explores a range of issues that could arise and tells the story as if it all makes perfect sense and could be plausible in the very near future. One is left wondering if our own thoughts and feelings on the topic are as cut and dry as we thought.

I found this book to be very thought-provoking. Unlike Lowry's "The Giver" series (which deals more with the loss of emotion within a community and the ramifications thereof), "Peace Out" is set in a society that pretty much mirrors our own.

Loved the topic, it read fast, but seemed like it had to reach to connect everyone. However, a good book club book to inspire discussions.
Danitra Campbell
A very interesting premise. My main criticism was that, with it being so short and there being so many pov, I never really cared about any of the characters. Worth the read though.
Laura Battle
Written by a new friend of mine here in AK, this is an interesting read. It certainly makes you think and would be an incredible book club discussion starter!
