Thought Provoking submitted by Zekicmom on June 13, 2015, 7:43am I first got interested in reading this book after hearing an interview with the author on NPR. Not something I would ever have considered reading otherwise, I'm so glad I did. It tackles an uncomfortable topic in a thoughtful, relatable way. Thought the author's own journey we given insight into the behind the scenes world of caring for the dead. It was a captivating read, and did not "freak me out", like I had been afraid it would.

Definitely unique submitted by KOH on August 4, 2017, 8:34pm I enjoyed reading about such a foreign to me subject. My only complaint is that it was difficult and sad to read the parts that mentioned deceased younger kids/babies. It was more palatable when i pictured everyone having lived a long good life.
