“Live like your life depends on it.”
Dire’s Club by Kimberly Packard is such an original and quite compelling read. I have loved all her previous books- and even though this story is quite different from the rest, I enjoyed it just as much, if not more, than her other works. This is a story about facing death, a topic that could be quite heavy and depressing. But this story manages to make this otherwise depressing topic take a more inspiring, moving, and beautiful tone that really made me sit up and take notice.
It is an adventure- where we follow a group of people as they embark on an experience of a lifetime while fulfilling a ‘bucket list’ wish and embracing ‘life’ to the fullest before death comes knocking.
This is all about friendships, secrets, adventure, emotion, facing your mortality, making you think, inspiring, terminal illness, mental illness- all with some unexpected twists and surprising developments that turn up the intrigue to maximum.
The story really made me evaluate my own life and take stock of what I would like to tick off my list before I ‘go’…
This book might seem like it is about mortality, death and dying- but I feel it is more about life- really embracing life, enjoying your life, and “living like your life depends on it”…
A really beautiful and memorable story that I won’t soon forget!
Thank you, Kimberly Packard!
