REVIEW:- I did enjoy this book even though it wasn't quite what I expected. I liked the interaction between Mary Anne and her son and the whole idea of the book club. It was interesting to follow the course of Mary Anne's illness from a medical point of view and to hear how well she dealt with her "journey". She had certainly led an interesting life and some of the stuff she had witnessed and heard about with regard to refugees, in particular, was very harrowing. I did find that some of the book discussions went over my head but others were very familiar when they were books I've read and enjoyed. I've made notes of a few new ones to try."

This book was given to my friend Snoopy56 when we met for a catchup today. She had said earlier that she would be interested in reading it.

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

When I received this book from Daffodil2 I said it would go straight to the top of my tbr pile and I’m so glad it did. I thought it was a wonderful read and I’m sure most book lovers would agree. I’ve photocopied the list of books mentioned for future reference and immediately added two of them to my wish list - Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner and Margery Morningstar by Herman Wouk.
As well as the discussions about books, the author describes his experience of being with his mother during her illness and in the final few pages he leads the reader gently towards the inevitable end. His mother always maintained that death is not something to be frightened of and that we should not shy away from discussing it. This book goes a long way towards achieving that aim. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
