When breath becomes air by Paul Kalanithi

When Breath Becomes AirWhen Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book could have been very depressing but it is not.
You know how it is going to end, yet you read it and feel his pain and his sorrow, and realize that he lived and loved life.
The tears come unbidden, be prepared for that.
But also be prepared for a beautifully written life story, be prepared to be touched by his courage and faith, by his fluency as he describes the progress of his cancer and the inevitable ending.

Do not miss this book, it is one of the finest I have read in a long, long while.
