'Still with Me' by Thierry Cohen is a book that has had a profound impact upon me. It has left me questioning decisions that I have made, and wondering about decisions that I will make in the future. Jeremy takes his own life on his twentieth birthday. His love for Victoria is unrequited, his life is going nowhere, he has no desire to live. He blocks the thought of his parents from his mind - refuses to think about them, and how this act will affect them. He can't see past his own pain. He just wants to end it.
If you have read 'For One More Day' and 'The Five People You meet in Heaven' by Mitch Albom, and enjoyed them, then this book will strike a chord with you. It is deep, extremely moving, and ultimately, life-affirming. This book inspired a national discussion about suicide in France, and the author wrote it after his best friend took his own life. It is beautiful, heart breaking, and will provoke much discussion I am sure. very highly recommended.
