really liked it

I received this book for free through GoodReads First Reads program.

The Last Days of My Mother has a really great first line, ends at exactly the proper time (doesn't drag on, doesn't end too soon) and the inbetween is pretty great as well. Some of the just-before-the-end parts were a little draggy, but otherwise it was a well paced, interesting and enjoyable book.

Also the phrase "meat sword" is used in exactly the context that you're imagining it, without seeming too vulgar or out of place. So there's that.
