Read full description of the books How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapters:When I log on to my Goodreads home page I always see many notices saying things like
Brainiac the Magnificent is now friends with Death By Radiation
Is This Catching? is now friends with My Mother Has Turned Blue
Tiny Little Aardvark is now friends with The Biker who Eats Babies
The Seventeenth Beatle is now friends with Barkybarkywoofwoof
But really, that's got nothing whatsover to do with how we die. At least, I don't think so. Unless these are all the names of angels.
As regards the book itself, since I sold my copy via Amazon to some geezer in Salt Lake City years ago, I can't remember much about it, so I'm just kind of busking here. This is a bad review. Talking just to be talking, you know. Because I'm reading some long books right now & it'll be ages before I can say anything about those.
But that makes me wonder.
Because, how we die on Goodreads is .... we suddenly stop responding to messages... stop adding books ... never finish another "currently reading".... no, it's too awful to contemplate. Our partners (if book geeks actually have partners) would never bother logging into our GR account and posting "It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Barkybarkywoofwoof from cirrhosis of the liver with complications, no flowers please".
Man visits his doctor. Doctor says "I've got some bad news, and I'm afraid I've got some even worse news." Guys says "Okay, I'll have the even worse news first." Doctor says "Okay, you have terminal cancer. The other news is that you also have Alzheimer's." Guy takes a deep breath and says "Okay - well, at least I haven't got terminal cancer."
