review 1: I really enjoyed this book a lot although it was heart-wrenching at times. Patrick Swayze and the parts he played in movies were a huge part of my growing up years, as I know he was for many of my friends and relatives. I loved reading about his strength and the love between he and his wife of thirty-four years, Lisa Swayze. Two weeks after I read this book, I found out my father-in-law has stage four pancreatic cancer so I can't help thinking there was a reason I read this book when I did.
review 2: This was a very honest account of how Lisa dealt with Patrick's illness & subsequent death. It was very Lisa oriented- which you would imagine, her being the author- and I felt was more about what Lisa went through as opposed to Buddy. The book shows her to be a
... more very strong woman who almost ran herself into the ground for months and months to make Patrick her number 1 priority. The love between the two of them is hugely evident. It was heartbreaking reading what he had to endure. He seemed to take everything in his stride; his strong, passionate personality and unwavering will to live was his biggest weapon against the disease. I would have loved to have met him. There aren't many "celebs" who I can say I think are amazing human beings, but Patrick Swayze was definitely one of them. less
