Great book. How could it be anything else? "What irritates me is that I also heal people, but you do it on purpose." by Krishnamurti. :D

5.0 out of 5 stars - so important to him and her - which I'd describe as something like psychologically and philosophically explorative 8 Sept. 2016
By Nora Lstine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Aldous Huxley's death told by his second wife with life - affirming, natural, warm and human sensibilities and in the spirit. - so important to him and her - which I'd describe as something like psychologically and philosophically explorative.
3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 30 Oct. 2014
By Jeff Botz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had read the Sybille Bedford biography and was disappointed in that and thought that this coming from his wife and she being a psychiatrist would be more insightful but it really wasn't(but it was a lot shorter).For some reason I thought a biography should be more than a compendium of the physical travel history but neither of these is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Memoir 21 Nov. 2000
By Thomas M. Seay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading Huxley's books for years, we finally get a glimpse into his later years through the eyes of his second wife, Laura Huxley. It is apparent throughout the book the extent to which Laura loved and admired Aldous. Nothing wrong with that.
We learn the truth about his alleged "blindness", his view of psychedelics and how he handled death. Although through my readings it was apparent that Huxley was a brilliant man of letters, the biography brought to light the kindness of the man. He was, according to Ms. Huxley, willing to avail himself and his knowledge to anyone who sought it (except perhaps reporters from whom he understandably sought sanctuary).
Even though I am sure it was unintended, we also come away with some notions about Ms. Huxley. Her devotion to Aldous, open-mindedness, and self-effacing manners shine through.
I liked the book, but somehow felt the picture was incomplete. Certainly Huxley must have had an interior struggle between his religous beliefs and his intellect. Such a struggle is not discussed in this book. Perhaps Ms. Huxley was unaware of such a struggle or perhaps Aldous had somehow transcended it by the time he met Laura.

5.0 out of 5 stars Important description of the real Aldous Huxley 13 July 2013
By Jay Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Contemporary account of the final days of Aldous Huxley by the person who was closest to him for that whole time. Important historical document describing one of the most quoted writers of the 20th Century, his life and death. Must read for any student of modern literature.
