I never dealt with death - just locked it up and pushed everything to the back of my mind. I thought THAT was being brave and COPING - at least I did until I read this book, cried my heart out and realised that you're a hell of a lot braver if you tackle it.
The writing is strong, poetic at times and very, very real. The language of grief tugs at the heart whilst the timely humorous moments lift you up by your boot straps and drag you on through. I have been the dishevelled hermit - I excelled in it; this book allowed me to go all Carpe Diem on my ass.
Since reading this book, I'm getting back to being me again.
I'm learning what family is meant to be about - and trust me - I've been brought up with some very odd ideas about family.
I feel like I've taken that step towards dealing with grief like a grown up.
Ashley - thank you.
It is a beautifully written account of a close family members death, so I guess it is not to be enjoyed. In fact, I was sat on the train close to crying - if I wasn't on the train, determined not to cry I think I probably would have done.
However, it is definitely worth the 5 stars every reviewer has given it - it is brutally honest, sad, but uplifting at the same time.
I recently have lost my dad who like Ashley's father was a solid bloke and a great guy. The way Ashley put's pen to paper stirs the emotions and sets to remind us that we are here for a very short time, we should therefore enjoy what life we have, and make the most of it as It only comes around once.
Mum went through it for around 6 months, my Sister for about 6 years and my Dad 1 day!
I didn't even get that day to say I Love You as by the time my Dad was diagnosed, the same day he went to hospital, I was in London and had to drive up to Manchester, before I set off I was watching The Bill, Dads favorite show.
Whilst watching I thought "Dad would like to be watching this"
Then I knew he had passed away before I'd even left...
Sure enough my Brother phoned me to tell me just that.
Still went though to see my Dad but it was hard and I felt a bit of regret.
I wanted to see him alive one more time but I was out of luck.
Anyway, this book is an emotional roller-coaster and well worth a read even if you haven't been affected by Cancer.
Well done Ashley, I'm certain your Dad would be chuffed at your courage.
The often searing honesty, when talking of guilt, fear, denial, selfishness and despair of losing a loved one is something that stays with you in a way that makes you grateful for having found someone else who understands that these are feelings many of us have had, but are too afraid or even ashamed to admit to have felt ourselves.
It is a genuinely gratifying read, without at any point being patronising or clichéd and offers very palpable hope to anyone who will find themselves reading this book.
It's gone on to show what a truly top bloke he is and im looking forward to more books from him.
I would definitely recommend this book to people.
