The Overstory - Richard Powers - A Short Summary and Review

The Shelf Life of Happiness - David Machado - A Short Summary & Review

 


A short summary of The Shelf Life of Happiness:

Daniel decides to help others while he waits for his own hurts to heal.

My favorite David Machado quote from the book:

"The issue isn’t about everyone fighting their own battles. The issue is the number of people who don’t bother to fight at all." 


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What tragedy have you lived through?

What do you do when you are depressed?

My review of The Shelf Life of Happiness:

A dark comedy that may not be for everyone.

Enjoyable read.

I don't know if I completely agree with Daniel's choices.
