    It s difficult to review this book without giving out spoilers Suffice to say, I enjoyed the beginning or first third to half of the book when the character pontificates about the ironies of life, the growing loneliness of the digital age, the feelings of having a lack of a social circle and strong family relationships I thought it was all fascinating and well written You knew from the beginning something would change for our dying character, Joe, but I wasn t a fan of how it came about and f It s difficult to review this book without giving out spoilers Suffice to say, I enjoyed the beginning or first third to half of the book when the character pontificates about the ironies of life, the growing loneliness of the digital age, the feelings of having a lack of a social circle and strong family relat...

    A quick little feel good read Joe has just been told he has terminal cancer, and he s looking back on his life, regretting choosing his career over any personal relationships to speak of There is redemption, of course, as Rebecca and her son enter his life, and give him a reason to find joy, purpose, and love not really romantic in his final days It s not exactly the most realistic scenario, but it s stil...

    To see my full review relatively short read takes an in depth look at one man s life once an end date is unceremoniously stamped upon it Like Queen Latifah in Last Holiday, Joe has just learned that he is going to die But unlike the comedic movie, Joe does not have a happy ending there is no mistake made here Suffering from pancreatic cancer, he is instructed to get his affairs in order, sending him on a spiraling journey that surveys his contribut To see my full review relatively short read takes an in depth look at one man s life once an end date is unceremoniously stamped upon it Like Queen Latifah in Last Holiday, Joe has just learned that he is going to die But unlike the comedic movie, Joe does not have a happy ending there is no mistake made here Suffering from pancreatic cancer, he is instructed to get his affairs in order, sending him on a spiraling journey that surveys his contributions to the world, or lack thereof Compelled to reminisce about his past as he looks bleakly at his short future, Joe begins to assess his life and make amends, learning to finally live in a world he has for so long allowed to pass him by.While this is a somewhat depressing look at the end of one man s life, it is also an inspirational one powerful in that it lays his soul bare and allo...
