When breath Becomes Air, by Paul Kalanithi 1 100x100

Influential, greatly written and acclaimed by critics, this is among top books to read. We read the memoirs of neurosurgeon diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. We follow the narrator through heartbreaking moments and inspiring struggle to answer one question - What makes life worth living when there is nothing to reach for in the future.


Huh. I mean, The Vegetarian was fine and a little unique, but it also felt like knockoff Murakami (1Q84, Norwegian Wood, etc) as I was reading it, so I wasn’t impressed. I kinda forgot it existed until I saw it on this list.
