MUST READ for a book lovers!!!

The End of Your Life Book Club

The End of Your Life Book Club 

By: Will Schwalbe

Genre: Memoir

Pages: 336

Published: 2012 

Read: April 

4.5 out of 5 stars 

This memoir is Tuesdays With Morrie, but with a  "novel" twist.  The conversations, or book club meetings, held between Will and his mom not only discuss the books, but also their lives.  Mother and son already had a close nurturing  relationship, but the 2 years of book club meetings deepened it considerably.  Even though the book title gives away the ending; its the way his mother would have wanted it  - She always read the last chapter of every book first.  Will's memoir is about family, relationships, hope, reconnecting, and love more than the loss id family experiences.  This heartwarming, touching book is a MUST read for all book lovers.  Their discussion of the novels you have already read will deepen your insight of them  and the ones you haven't read will be added to you To-Be-Read shelf quickly.  I loved the fact that Will included a bibliography of all the books discussed at the end - what a great added bonus!
