** SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER**

'Rattling. Heartbreaking. Beautiful.' Atul Gawande, bestselling author of Being Mortal


At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade's training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, the next he was a patient struggling to live.

When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi's transformation from a medical student asking what makes a virtuous and meaningful life into a neurosurgeon working in the core of human identity - the brain - and finally into a patient and a new father.

What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when when life is catastrophically interrupted? What does it mean to have a child as your own life fades away?

Paul Kalanithi died while working on this profoundly moving book, yet his words live on as a guide to us all. When Breath Becomes Air is a life-affirming reflection on facing our mortality and on the relationship between doctor and patient, from a gifted writer who became both.

'A vital book about dying. Awe-inspiring and exquisite. Obligatory reading for the living' Nigella Lawson

" Rattling. Heartbreaking. Beautiful."

Nothing new but nevertheless touching

It`s an easy read with a very emotional setting even if the story and the message is nothing I've never read before.

While reading and crying..

This book teaches you how cruel and short life can be while at the same moment it’s the greatest Adventure ever. It makes you think about the reasons why we’re not always thankful for everyday and makes us do that!

There is no better writer than Toni Morrison in her peak

There is a general consensus that "Beloved" is Toni Morrison's greatest work. "The Bluest Eye" might have caught me more unprepared, as it was my first encounter with her style that constantly pulls the rug out from under the characters' and the readers' feet, but "Beloved" is an unforgettable read - even after more than a decad... There is a general consensus that "Beloved" is Toni Morrison's greatest work. "The Bluest Eye" might have caught me more unprepared, as it was my first encounter with her style that constantly pulls the rug out from under the characters' and the readers' feet, but "Beloved" is an unforgettable read - even after more than a decade much of it was still very vivid in my memory. Toni Morrison has the ability to put fortune and misfortune so close to each other that it is impossible to just feel one of the two. Thus, the ultimate human connection concurrently turns into a catastrophe that infinitely connects a mother with her two daughters. Anyone looking for nuanced literature will find it here!
