    Freebie on Kindle Its hard to review a compilation of short stories, cause do I review them one by one, or the book as a whole I ve decied to do the whole book, cause all the short stories revolve around the same subject.The subject of saying goodbye to something. In this book its mostly family members, and especially parents..There were also some stories about losing or having to part with a thing or a pet..I only skipped one short story in this book, and I really wish I didnt have to do that, but there was one story called Puppy Love and I knew I would have teary eyes after reading that one, considering the fact that I still miss my own puppy I had to say goodbye to after having him in my life for 8 years. Yeah, ok he wasnt a puppy after 8 years, but I will always remember the moment I first met him as one. Because of that I couldnt get myself to read it I hadnt expected being so emotional reading these stories. When you read a book you cant help putting yourself in the shoes of the characters, well, I cant at least, and so I couldnt help but think about my own family when reading these sweet, funny and touching goodbyes. When I, one day, read about a daughter saying goodbye to her father I had to stop reading, cause I was reading on the train, and I doubt the other people would appreciate me starting to sob. This was a really touching book and I m very happy to have read it. It puts thoughts in your head, and I hope that when I one day have to say goodbye to someone I love, I can take this book out and know that there will be a light at the end of the tunnel for me too..4 stars.

    A really moving book with a compilation of short stories of how people dealt and said their goodbyes.Some of those stories got me teary eyed as I read them,especially those caused mostly by degenerative diseases like Alhezeimers Watching the person you love slowly fading away,and having to be strong enough not to cry so that they don t have to feel like they are a burden to their loved ones must be hard,but in the end this stories were inspirational.Heartwarming,remembering them through their happy moments.Even saying goodbye to pets,things that we get attached to was brought out through the stories in this book.I loved it,period.Looking forward to reading of To Dream of things anthologies or stories or memoirs.

    A friend contributed an essay to this book and that was my reason for choosing it to read I think each contribution, on its own, was well written and absorbing However, I had to read the book in small segments, because the goodbye was often due to a death and one emotionally moving story after another was too much for me.

    I was disappointed in this book I expected it to be about end of life good byes Although there were some, it was not There were humorous stories intermixed with the serious Each story is written by a different author, some really good, some I struggled with, wondering what they were saying good bye to.
