I have just finished reading this book having heard how inspirational it is and a good friend with like minded tastes thought it wonderful.
It irritated me early on, - their bad choices and stupid lack of preparation. Ie - forgetting some of Moths medication, .
I felt no compassion for them and thought the woman selfish and stubborn.
Had they abandoned their university children? . They didn’t seem to have much contact with them.
Lots of unfinished day to day tales.
I plodded on with it but felt it was prolonged, repetitive and irresponsible . Ok in your 20’s but not with a terminally ill man in your 50’s.
I suppose the ending was hopeful and I loved the quote ‘I’ll see you where the sea meets the sky.
What did others make of it? I’d love to hear your thoughts. ?
