2420 : Reading list 2018 : #18: The year of magical thinking by Joan Didion

If I have to choose one book that made me stop and think about my life (in recent times), it has to be The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion.

Absolutely gut wrenching exploration of grief, of death, of old age and of mortality. Dealing with a spouse and a child's mortality is more than I have ever meditated upon.

I was overwhelmed by the language, the sincerity and the insightful observations.

Definitely one to read many times over during my living years.

Brings my total 2018 #read pages to 5035 pages.
