The Book of Two Ways

by Jodi Picoult
A fascinating book that goes into ancient Egypt's beliefs on the afterlife and the two paths a person can take after death. The story also focuses on finding purpose and meaning in life. It also focuses on love - first loves, sustaining loves. How just because we move on from someone doesn't mean we ever forget them.   The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult.  #fiction, #reading, #books to read, #books #beach read

Book Review

(by- Linda )

For starters, I liked this book, but with a few reservations. Jodi Picoult most definitely did some deep research (a Jodi Picoult quality which I love). And, although fabulously interesting, be prepared to learn a lot about ancient Egypt - perhaps a little too intense at times, especially early in the story.

I've read a lot of Jodi Picoult's books. She tackles deep subjects and never fails to create something new and different. And I love how she always manages to stir up thoughts and emotions.

This is the story of Dawn Edelstein, and she's a death doula, someone who helps terminally ill patients transition from life to death. I liked reading about this profession, which is new to me. I also enjoyed reading about Dawn's struggles and doubts with her life choices. Life is not perfect; most people think about what if I took a different path. And finally, the relationships in this story are exceptional.
