Review: The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe

The End of Your Life Book ClubThe End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. It’s a wonderful read for readers, really. Schwalbe recounts the last months of his mother’s life, where they read books together and discuss them. Schwalbe also talks a lot about how to be with those with a critical illness, and how to shepherd them through their last days. But it’s not sad or depressing, but rather a joyful account of how books brought the two of them closer together, and the influence books can have on people in vastly different circumstances. Schwalbe’s mother worked tirelessly for women and child refugees, including the building of a library in Afghanistan, and those tales add much depth to the story.

This is a book that makes you want to make a difference. Highly recommended.
