Whatever We May Think of at the End of Life

by Norabee on Oct 11, 2008

This was truly a striking story. I didn?t like it much at first, but as I continued reading I saw there was something beautiful being realized. I had a good feeling after I finished reading it ? I enjoyed the story and admire Susan Minot?s confidence to write a novel in this way ? her loose, rambling style captured the subconscious mind. It?s true that this is a sprawling story which was sometimes hard to follow but I think that often, that?s the way memories get tangled up at the end of life after an illness. It gives the reader an inside view of dying, which is very thought-provoking. I?m intrigued to see the movie and to see how their treatment affects the plot and storyline.

I thought this book was wonderful. At moments it made me wonder if I had ever felt those feelings and then the next moment I knew I had. It's a definite read.


A life in review

by babycakes on Jun 27, 2007

This diminutive novel will hook you like an unwitting fish on a line. Once caught, all you can do is go along for the ride and experience the finest romance and secret life of a dying woman from all sides. Her children have no idea what secrets she holds in her breast, but we do. She invites us past the gauzy curtain of past, present, and the inevitable future. This novel is cast and being made into a film. Don't wait for the film. Read this now and be amazed, startled, and drawn into a web so finely spun that you will never be the same again.
