I read this book years ago and still remember the story line and the emotions that it brought forth. It's wonderfully written and I really enjoyed it. It makes you stand back and realize that the things that come to us in life shouldn't be taken for granted as you read about this boy and his stuggle.

Eric..was a classic we had to read in 8th grade,after I read the first chapter I eneded up being at least three chapters ahead of our class.I could not place this book down for I was captivated by this mans courage and deterinmation to live a normal life.I often thought how much I would of liked to of met Eric and thanked him for the impact he made on my life.Often we go thru life complaining of the lil things that disturb us or make us uncomfortable but these patients who suffer and their families who endure it,makes our every day problems seem almost neal.Eric was a book I will never forget and after almost 25 years I remember every thing in the book,Doris Lund opened up her life for us all to have a glimpse into it and I thank her for that bravery,I know Eric is looking down from the heavens and smiling knowing his disease has helped many others.

I actually cried when I read this book. I would only recommend it to people who dont get upset easily because this is an upsetting book but very good.

This book has stayed with me for 22 years. I read it over the summer (required reading)right before I started high school. I am now ordering it for my 11 year old to read over the summer. It is a powerful, heart wrenching book. A truly wonderful read. You will not be able to put it down.

I liked this book. I had to read a biography for school and trust me I picked the right one.

I first read this book when I was a teenager. It made such a wonderful impression on me. I truly felt as if I was in Eric's struggle with him. It was the first book that made me cry. I am 36 years old now and can't wait for my three children to be ready to read it.

This is one of the first books I ordered while in high school (I am now 37)and have read it several times since. I recently reordered the book because mine 'gave out' from so many people reading it. This heart wrenching and heart warming story of a young man's will to survive shows how one persons life affects so many. A must read anytime you need to find stregnth, because if Eric and his family and friends can endure what they went through, we can endure just about anything.

All my friends told me that this was an unforgettable book, yet I cannot even now even remember any of the main events. This book moves very slowly, and some parts just seemed to drag on and on forever. And my friends told me that I was going to cry my eyes out, didn't really happen. I didn't feel connected to Eric. Doris was always talking about HER doing Eric's remission that I knew more about her than Eric! But, I think that Eric is still someone to look up to for his 'not giving up' attitude. I would still reccomend this to someone for a summer reading.

This was the first 'grown up' book I read as a kid. I'm now 37 and I've never forgotten it. I will definitely make the book available for my kids to read when they are old enough.

I read this book when it was first published all those years ago, and it has stuck with me ever since. I remember how the song 'Beginnings' by Chicago was Eric's favorite song. Great, great book!

A few months ago my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer. I picked up this book at my high school. We had to find a book that was 'biology' related and then write a book report on it. This book has truly changed my life. I didnt know all the struggles that cancer patients had to go through. I didnt know about all the sickness, or all the drugs. This book has truly taught me not to take things for granted. EVER. Thank you Doris Lund.

I read this book when I was a teen. 20 years later and I still remember it all! I am now looking to buy it for my 18yr old daughter to read. It touched me like no other story ever to this day. Wonderful written story about a true life experience. Written like no other. I saw the movie many years ago and wish I could see it again. Would be great if it was on VHS.

Eric was an unforgettable book. It was tragic and the story of a dying boys life, but it had some amazing aspects to it. Eric taught me about values, and living life to the best of my abilities, even when I think the world has caved in on me. You can only make life as bad as you want it to be, and you have the power to make life as good as you want it to be. Eric taught us this. Eric taught us how life should be lived in a perfect world. I'm using Erics way of living in my own world now, while I battle with melanoma, a form of skin cancer. I would recomend this book to anyone who likes to shed tears while reading.

I first read this book when I was in junior high. It immediately became one of my all time favorite books. Over the years I read it over and over. Every time wishing more that I had a chance to meet Eric. When I was in College I was strugling with what to do with my life. It was while I was reading Eric again that it struck me that I wanted to do something that helps people like him. I decided to go into Blood Banking. The decision is one that I will always remember Eric for. Then about four years ago I experienced Lukemia first hand. A dear family member was struck ill with the disease. We lost her to the battle. So now my career choice has even more meaning. Thank you to Mrs. Lund for sharing your son with us. Read this book. It is amazing. You wont be sorry.

This book has encouraged me to live life every day, as if I'll never see my family or friends again. Because of this book, I am considering majoring in something having to do with people who have leukemia. It is a strong disease that can overpower you in a blink. I would like to meet anyone who might be as wonderful as Eric Lund was. I truly respect Doris Lund for writing this book, and being an example to me, and other people as well.

I enjoyed Eric very much! I read this book in 7th grade. When i finished the book i was very happy that i had read it and that i was able to be exposed to something i never had benn before i read this book.This is no doubt the best book i have ever read.It is written by Erics mother and she tells what Eric and his friends and family went through during his fight to survive Lukemia. I highly recomend this book!!

I read this book in my grade 10 english class. Most books you read in school are of no interest to the age group reading them. However this book was nat in that category. I would recommend this book to anyone. It was totally awesome and I give it 2 thumbs up!!!

Well I read Eric for an English class and I just did it because my teacher told us to but I ended up reading ahead of everyone else and actually finishing the same week we started. I learned so much about life and how we should take in every moment of our lives. I am only a sophomore in high school and this is the only book that has really influenced me and made me understand things better. You never know when something as terrible as Leukimia will come right for you. I LOVE THE BOOK ERIC AND I RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE!!!
