I would like to NOT shout out the people who recommended this book. I think I even gave it to my Mom for Christmas based on others' well respected opinions of the book. Mom, please verify in the comments.
I would like to NOT recommend this book for you to read and here's why.
I HATE, LOATHE, DESPISE, am FEAFUL of, and am NOT COMFORTABLE with the subject or characterization or diagnosis of CANCER.
I appreciated the development of a relationship and the brilliant conversational writing skills of Mr. Green.
But I felt pain for the entire experience.
