  • From here to eternity

    Interesante. Los dos primeros capítulos no me parecieron fascinantes, pero el resto del libro es muy bueno.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great book

    As usual Caitlin Doughty has shone a light where so few others dare to tread unless it’s in some tacky schlock horror tourism way(addressed in the book with a description of a group of tourists that proves that the horror in most cases, is the live ones, not the dead) I have never understood why the”western world” has always had such disdain for the, to my mind, far more humane.....and human, funerary rites of other cultures, and it was so reassuring to hear the same sentiments echoed by someone else(also I too would love a sky burial, and I’m extremely unlikely to ever get it either......tho in my case that’s more due to a shortage of vultures in NZ). I guess I’m lucky in a way,that I was brought up in a mixed culture family where death is a family matter. In the old days before the Catholic Church got its claws in the Polynesian islands, I’m sure it was even more so, but even with the churches all pervasive influence, I’d still seen and spent time with many corpses as I grew up, so the fear of dead bodies was never really something I felt. I happy to see that within my lifetime, people like Caitlin and The Order of the Good Death are making changes to this most transformative of rituals. A+ book. I loved it

  • Grim yet educational

    This book has truly opened my eyes to death practices and the denial of death around the globe. There are so many stories to tell by different people from different backgrounds that can help others accept the hardest part of life: death. And the author helps us by introducing them to us. She is the first step. The rest of the road is up to us.

    Thanks for your feedback!
