I don t like the goodreads rating system I want to give this book 3 stars but the designation it was OK is fitting than I liked it Yet 2 stars seems like an unnecessary slamThe book is a little saccharine for my taste Basically it comes down to a father who loved his son and was full of justified or unjustified pride According to Mr Gunther his son was better smarter nicer braver etc than any other person on the face of the planet I understand why he felt that way and I think it s a nice thing when a parent holds their child in such esteem But on the other hand it became a little tedious to read after a while and I found myself wondering if Johnny would have been a rather arrogant person from his parents constantly blowing sunshine up his aAt one point Mr Gunther uotes his son as saying My mother and father think that anything connected with me is remarkable These strange parents I thought to myself Yep Basically Overall the book was OK Based on the description I was expecting a philosophical look at the struggle to accept death But really it was just an account of his son s last months of life At the very end of the book Johnny s mother the author s ex wife included some remarks I found what she had to say about death and losing her son to be very touching and I wish the book had been written by her
