Twelve Months kept me reading from page one to the last. This book
touched my heart like no other, bringing me to tears and actual sobs.
Steven Manchester’s story will make every reader stop and think with
putting the important things in their life first; living life to the
fullest, loving, and having faith in God. I was pulled into each
character from the very beginning to the end. I couldn’t put this book
down, and became attached not only Don DiMarco, but his wife Bella,
Riley, Michael, Madison and Pudge. In truth, I'm lost for words on how
this book hit me so hard, as it was a told in a voice so real that I had
to keep telling myself that it’s fiction. Great storytelling,
emotional writing, and a great imagination to write this powerful book
with so many lessons in it!

Why??

Why do people feel the urge to write about the whole book?! Just write what you think ABOUT the book. Sheesh you ruin it for people that haven't purchased the darn thing.

    Not what i had expected. Maybe I had unreasonably high expectations for this book. I liked it well enough, but wasn't captured by it. It felt like I was reading a fictional memoir in parts. The chapters were joined enough to be continuous, but disjointed enough to feel like each could stand on its own. I didn't sit up at night gripped to the cover in order to see what was going to happen. It was entertaining, but the message that I felt I should be getting from the book just wasn't there. The content did stimulate my mind to think about what is truly important in life. I didn't identify with any of the characters well either (perhaps because I've not experience the sort of turmoil associated with the news of impending death). I found the descriptions of the events in the story to be good, and even realistic. I could visualize this person doing these things, but i didn't feel connected to him. I really wanted to feel something more and understand him on a greater level. Full disclosure: I have been provided a copy of the book for the purpose of providing a review; however the opinions presented are my own and not influenced or dictated by publisher or author.
