Decent premise, but no character developement. Strange writing:  Run-on sentences and very short 3 word sentences, no happy medium.  On the verge of soft core "you know what".  I picked it up from the library and  the previous "checker" had left their due date slip in it. She scratched out her name and wrote is all caps: "FILTHY BOOK!" lol.

I liked this book. Makes you really think about what is important in life.  An easy read but very emotional. I cried about 10 times throughout the course of this book.  I did find the author's self-loathing to be a little annoying, but who am I to judge. I've never had cancer and wouldn't know how I'd react.  I would have liked a little more depth as to his relaltionship with each of the "Council Members" rather than back story of their fathers and fathers fathers. Overall, a good read if your in the mood for a good cry.

I thought this was just "ok".  If you have seen How to Make an American Quilt or The Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood, then you have already read this book.  Too many characters that had nothing to do with the story. And  they were all so mean & catty to eachother, makes you wonder why they are friends at all.  A few plot points were left open at the end which was annoying.
