Goodreads Review of Mortality

MortalityMortality by Christopher Hitchens

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was not familiar with his work but read a review of the book and thought it would be an interesting read. Over the last few years I’ve attended more funerals than weddings. Most were friends’ whose mother or father passed. More and more of my friends have family members who are/were ill. Death has definitely visited family members. Hitchens’s writing is very honest and if you have a few hours and are at ease with your own mortality I highly recommend the book.

“Death is the dark backing that a mirror needs if we are to see anything (Saul Bellow).”
