Recent Comments "In Love with Death"
This book is thoroughly disconcerting. I found quickly that I could not read the book at night because it would keep me up thinking (and panicking) about mortality. The book has no quick answers, no proofs or explanations. It does, however, interview various people from around the world on their view of death and how that shapes the way they live. It sounds dark, but truly the stories encourages you to think long and hard about how you live your life. It was a fantastic book in the sense that I [...]
In his new thought-provoking book, Satish Modi asks us, his readers, to consider the idea that death is a good thing. That's a strange notion to many of us. Death is the ultimate unknown; fear is a natural reaction. However, the writer challenges us to keep our focus on making the most of our everyday lives, rather than on the endpoint that is death. Death is a natural part of life, but what will you do with the time you have between now and then? Modi does share his own personal thoughts, and [...]
Like most people in the universe, I find myself pondering thoughts of death on occasion, mostly right before bed and I too, fear the unknown of what happens after life. While this book didn't quite "cure" my way of thinking, it did have some insightful chapters.

An important and brave book. Although I found some of the stories/chapters less interesting and relevant to me than others, a number of them were truly breathtaking. The intro few chapters ("On Salt Cellars", "On Time") provided a good general philosophical background, while the chapters following that offered more individualised perspectives on life, loss, and ultimately, mortality. I found "On Trees" and "On Money: Frank's Story" particularly moving. Overall, this little book is beautifully co [...]
If you want wisdom to live your life more fully and accept your mortality, this book is for you. I'd read one short chapter a day and ponder its content rather than read it in one sitting. It reminded me of Kahlil Gibran's writing in wisdom and tone. I received a free copy to review from First Reads.
In Love With Death takes us to the reason and explanation why death is our faith from ones perspective.
This is the most thought-provoking book I've read in a long time!
Light of stars lives in us.5 stars to Professor Jasper
