Well worth reading
The fact that Mr. Dufresne tackles the serious subject of terminal illness, while incorporating dry humor throughout the novel, speaks volumes of his talent as a writer. The story never turns into a sappy mess. Instead, Mr. Dufresne leads all of his characters on the road of self-discovery which ultimately allows them to positively alter their lives in the process. Heartbreaking, insightful, full of subtle humor, this novel deserves more recognition.

I've read my share of lame books. I don't come across very many that I really enjoy. I thought the title was a bit cliche, but thought I'd give it a chance. I like how the author never straight off defines the duties of love, but dances around it with "this one time... or.. I remember when..". Gives love characther with short stories. <BR/>It's not a sappy story, it has bits and pieces of chuckle moments.<BR/>Also includes, "did you know?" or just plain facts that relate.<BR/>I highly recommendWas this review helpful?
