I have posted my review of When Breath Becomes Air on my writing blog, Sherrey Meyer, Writer, as I post most of my memoir reviews there.
I have posted a portion of the synopsis here with a link to the actual review. I hope you’ll want to come over and read the entire review. This is a book you’ll not want to miss!
‘Finishing this book and then forgetting about it is simply not an option…Unmissable’ New York Times
At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade’s training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, the next he was a patient struggling to live.
When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi’s transformation from a medical student asking what makes a virtuous and meaningful life into a neurosurgeon working in the core of human identity – the brain – and finally into a patient and a new father.
