I feel very strongly about the subject matter of this book. I support death with dignity, and I believe it’s an important issue that should be discussed and considered on a personal and individual level. This novel may have started a conversation for a lot of people, and I think Moyes does a fantastic job portraying a cast of characters—each of whom has a unique perspective on the issue that is supported both emotionally and intellectually (and sometimes hysterically)—that readers can connect with. No matter how you feel about the issue, Moyes gives you a mother, father, sister, friend, or caregiver to grab on to for support while Will Traynor does whatever the hell he wants (which is exactly how it should be).
I didn’t love this novel as much as The Girl You Left Behind (the only other Moyes title I’ve read), but I do think it was a worthy read. I’m glad she tackled the topic.
