This was a really good book. It made me question the real values in life through the eyes of an 11-year-old. It was just amazing. And the film based on it was very close to the book. :)
At first I wasn't sure I was going to like this book - I was a bit sceptical. As I read on, though, I found it very touching and very sensitively rendered. Told from the POV of an eleven-year-old who is dying of leukemia, it won me over completely with its delicate introduction of secondary themes of hope and peace in the face of death.
read the book cried a lot while reading and some of the crying was done in class thank god no one saw while searching for the book on google found out that they had made a movie though a bit different from the book i still cried i never cried when it comes to books This was the first :)
I don't remember how I came to own the book, but I loved it. I eventually read this book 3 or 4 times, until I moved and had to give it away. I would reccomend this book for everyone :)
One of the best books I've ever read. It was so inspiring and made me wonder about things about life and death. One thing I love about this book was that once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. There was not one dull moment in my opinion. The ending was simply amazing as well. My thanks to the author.
An interesting perspective from a boy dying of leukemia. Very moving, and important book for kids coming to terms with their own mortality.
It's a really good book. I finished it in a day. The poview is okay, but it really does show how innocent a kid is. It makes you wonder about a lot of things in life, and you learn from this book. :)
Beautifully, beautifully written book from the eyes of a young, innocent child. Very touching. The creative formatting of the book was neat as well.
