AMAZING......AN INSIGHT INTO LIFE AND DEATH, 25 Oct. 2005
This book is a must read - although it focuses on death, it's ultimate message is life affirming. Through her painful year, Joan Didion writes an account of her feelings while trying to come to terms with her husband's death. Her insight into death is ultimately the most rewarding thing for the reader, because it's ultimate message is so positive and life affirming. I have been re-reading the final chapters non-stop since finishing the book last week. An incredible book.
