My friend, Angie, recommended this book. Despite the depressing topic, I enjoyed it. It was funny at times and I liked the writing style. And I liked that the ending wasn't what I was expecting, which would have been too predictable.
Keep an eye out for the movie next year. Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler will play the roles of Holly and Gerry. Cast members include Kathy Bates, Lisa Kudrow, Gina Gershon, James Marsters and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
