review 1: I had my doubts when I started reading this. (I'd borrowed it from the library and picked it up more or less at random as I was in a hurry.) Written in the voice of a youngish woman who is in the last few months of her life, it promised to be a morbid read. Yet it was heartwarming and endearing, even wryly comical in parts, with the author managing to maintain just the right balance. I have to confess that I was dreading coming towards the end and more or less skimmed the last couple of chapters for fear of how I might feel.
review 2: I loved this book and could not put it down - read it in a day! An intersting writing style as Delia plans for her imminent death while resolving issues from long ago - at the same time answering her agony column! Often very funny
... more but always thought provoking and every reader will put themselves in that 'well if this was me would I do the same'? thought frame. An excellent book I enjoyed immensley. less
