Very moving but never sentimental, tough but never cynical . . . gripping, funny and always honest
I wept. I laughed. I dared to hope. I felt my heart crack. This book is life. It is exceptional
An extraordinary story told extraordinarily well. I don't know how Abi Morgan has managed to live through all this, let alone write such a fascinating, heartbreaking yet frequently funny book about it. It is so gripping I honestly couldn't put it down
Funny and brutally honest . . . an absolute insight for those of us lucky enough to never know life like this
Incredibly powerful, moving, funny, honest & brave. I LOVED it
The kind of book you will find yourself saying urgently, over and over, to friends: 'Have you read it?'
A mash-up of all the things I love in a book - honesty, comedy, pathos and what-happens-next. It's brutal - in a good way - but above all else it's a testament to kindness, stickability and enduring love
Truly breathtaking. Arrestingly honest, funny, profound and exquisitely written. I could not have loved it more
With her trademark deadpan, trenchant wit, and a deeply soulful mindfulness, Abi Morgan takes a breathtaking hike on the cliff edge of a life upended by illness. By turns harrowing, cracking sharp and heartbreaking, it is comforting to accompany someone with her sense of humor and the absurd on this trip - this book is a gift to anyone who has been similarly unmoored by fate and the furies
A very moving and utterly absorbing story told with the surgical skill of the brilliant scriptwriter she is
A sharp, poignant and witty joy to read that will leave you energised and uplifted
Told with brutal honesty and a heroic amount of humour . . compelling
Heart-breaking but life affirming and soul-stirring . . . Told with a candid honesty and humour . . . a touching love story and a testament to the human spirit, family and friendship
Uplifting and powerful
Captivating and compelling
Compelling . . . mordant humour and heart-warming beauty
I couldn't put it down
Both very funny and as propulsive as a thriller...impossible to put down.
Astonishing, terrifying, heartbreaking... as well as grief and fear, there is humour, tenderness and so much love
