I am interested in reading:

If I Stay
Author: Gayle Forman
ISBN-13: 9780525421030 - ISBN-10: 0525421033

I've read many reviews on it, mostly from Amazon. I would love to have some PBS member opinions on this book. What do you think of the subject matter's delivery and the writers style.

I'm also wondering if any of you have had a similar experience like the character in the book. If you want to message me instead of posting, it would be fine.

Besides having personal experiences that relate to the content of this book, I'm a nurse. I've shared many meaningful and beautiful experiences with my patients about life and death experiences. I'm willing to share any experiences I've had, too. I just don't know if anyone is interested.

FYI: This book is not about suicide or assisted suicide. The book is fictional. It is about a girl in a coma and her experience of whether to chose life or death within her coma. It is a very existential book.

 

Thanks
