4 stars

The book is broken up into parts. First is a forward by Abraham Verghese. They there are two parts written by Paul Kalanithi, the first is an overview of his life up to when he was diagnosed with lung cancer. The second is his life while fighting the cancer and then there is a epilogue written by his wife, after his death.

This book seemed to be a search for the meaning of life, in a way, while he is faced with his mortality.

It is a really good book with many thought provoking quotes.

NancyJ (nancyjjj) | 4884 comments I have heard so many great things about this book, but I was never quite in the mood to read it. So, I put it on my trim list to take the timing out of my hands.
