This review is from: So Much for That (Paperback)
This is a must-read. Lionel Shriver is a brilliant woman. This is an important book. Everybody should read it. It is a thought-provoking, sensitive, perceptive and informed analysis of the whole experience of cancer, both for the patient and their family/friends. Every page is packed with intelligent observations. Despite its harrowing subject, it is unexpectedly funny. It is also a shocking wake-up call as to how ridiculously lucky we are to have the NHS, with all its flaws.
