I have read two books since my last books post and as I am busy with "I am Pilgrim" and it's 800 plus pages (thus it will be a while before I am done with it), I though I should share about the last two books I have read.
Daisy is 27 years old when she finds out she only has a few months to live. In stead of wallowing in her sadness and fear she jumps straight ahead in her type A personality type and make lists of things that need to be done before she goes. Her main concern is her charming and intelligent husband that is totally useless in taking care of himself.
As she search for who she believes will be the perfect wife for him she actually almost loose him in her pre occupation to ensure that his life goes ahead with minimal disruption caused by her illness.
I really enjoyed the book and despite the very sad topic one never feels overwhelmed by her sadness of sickness. The tone of the book carries through her attitude towards her situation - almost light hearted and matter of fact. But subtly one finds out how her life is changing and how the disease affects her and her relationships.
Well worth a read - an 8/10 .
