    2. Ten a tiempo que no lloraba tanto con un libroY no es porque este brillantemente escrito, sino que despu s de tener tanta familia fallecida y padeciendo de c ncer, me sent muy identificada con todos esos sentimientos Con la impotencia Con la falta de fe Con el hecho de que sabes que tu muerte es algo inminente Luchar contra porcentajes, c mo sonre r en esa situaci n C mo mantienes la esperanza cuando todo sigue empeorando Se me rompi el coraz n cuando el doctor habl de coserle los p rpados asdf, [...]

    3. 11th July 2013 Just to drop a note here to say that I will NOT be reviewing this book due to personal reasons Don t get me wrong tho, cos this is an amazing book and a very well written one I would highly recommend it to others who wish to explore on euthanasia and the struggle of family and friends with loved ones who has critical illness 9th July 2013 I have just finished this today Can t tear myself away from it once I ve started reading it Thing is, the events in this book strike too close [...]

    4. Okay, this was awful.My main problem is the characters The MC is an arrogant, selfish, vain, self absorbed jerk his best friend is a typical bad boy with a mysterious past I hate this trope his girlfriend is a slut, who we are told the MC loves for reasons other than her reputation, but we aren t given any of these reasons and is sister is a pathetic, gullible baby, who for some reason falls in love with the bad boy Even the adults are unlikeable the MC s parents show no regard for his feelings [...]

    5. I went to reserve the other Breathless at the library, and this one came up on the list A new Lurlene McDaniel book About assisted suicide I clearly needed to read this one I haven t read a Lurlene in years and years not since I still enjoyed her books Two important things to note in this book, I believe One In the eighth grade, I wrote a short story about a girl who falls off a ladder and breaks her leg, and when they x ray it, they find out she had cancer This was totally when I was in my Lurl [...]

    6. Growing up on Lurlene McDaniel s books I have found I am never left unaffected or wanting Lurlene McDaniel has always found a way to present death, life and everything in between with grace and in a beautiful way Travis loves his life he has the perfect girlfriend, the perfect best friend, the perfect family and he is the star diver on the fast track Travis knows how great he has it and does not pretend otherwise One day at the lake Travis shows off by diving off a cliff, but as he jumps he feel [...]

    7. 5 Incredible StarsWow, this book was really good and also brought me into tears at the end I was right about the ending because he soon dies I loved everything about this book from the setup, to the writing, and to the characters Towards the end was at a point that I just wanted to keep reading because it was so good I felt really bad for Darla, Cooper, Emily, and Travis s parents to see him have cancer and had to see him die I really felt bad for Darla because it was hard to say goodbye to some [...]

    8. My Initial Thoughts Rambling Okay, let me draw attention to these three blurbs sensitively exploring, McDaniel began writing inspirational novels and McDaniel s novels are hard hitting and realistic, but also leave readers with inspiration and hope from the jacket cover Let me say it right now whoever wrote that crap is a freaking liar I warn you I m about to go on a rant I ll try to organize my thoughts, but my loathing for this novel increases the I think about it I tried to wait a day or two [...]

    9. Please note that what is written in this review are my opinions, please do not take offense to it If you may be offended by what I am writing please stop reading, if you do not agree with me then please just do not say anything at all because these are my thoughts on the book and I simply won t care if you decide to comment hurtful things Foreknowledge is a burden, a weight I can hardly bear Maybe that s why God keeps the future hidden from us If I knew I would have a terrible accident, would I [...]

    10. This is how I think about my life Before I got sick, endless possibilities After No possibilities.Travis has his whole life ahead of him, then he doesn t A broken leg starts a vicious cycle of hospitalisation, out patient treatment, pain, medication, remission, and relapse Pain changes him It changes the people around him It changes everything.There s a lovely author s note in the beginning to warn those who find the word euthanasia a trigger I for one would have loved to read this story without [...]

    11. OMG Another 5 5 book.Before I even picked up this book I was a little disappointed because of how thin it was 165pg , and I thought I wouldn t get much out of it I mean, c mon, how much can you really get out of book that is less then 200 pgs Especially a book that is about such a serious subject So, reluctantly I picked up the book and started reading it Once again, the pages flew by without me noticing because the book was that good This book is about a teenager named, Travis, who is a champio [...]

    12. This book could have been A LOT better.It felt rushed 150 pages for a book That s not even enough time to let your characters grow I was very disappointed.I wanted to know about the relationships, the characters, what happened over the period of time, but it just happened too fast.Maybe it was because everyone was awaiting a new novel by her, maybe it was because she didn t plan it out properly or took enough time You re supposed to feel connections with characters, normally I do even if I ve n [...]

    13. I can t say enough bad things about this book It s disjointed, contradictory, implausible in its details, disdainful of its character sketches cuz they re not full characters and inconsiderate of the reader Lurlene says in a note in the beginning that she knows novels are built on character and plot hooray so she had to wait 10 years, until they jelled, to write this book Unfortunately, we have different definitions of these words So it s a poorly written issue book that skirts around the issue, [...]

    14. I must have a thing for books about choices First I read If I Stay amazing, but that s besides the point and now Breathless.Choose to live or choose to die That s what it comes down to Travis has cancer and his life is ruined His dreams of being an Olympic diver Gone High School Done The only things he still has are his friends and family Even then it s not all it s cracked up to be.In the beginning of the book, it brings up the point that many of us say I d never do that when in fact, if push c [...]

    15. Breathless es un libro que te da mucho que pensar y te hace dudar de todo Es incre ble,me he esforzado much simo en no llorar No es la t pica historia que empieza mal y acaba bien, no, y eso es lo que me ha sorprendido.

    16. This is probably the most emotional book I have read so far I couldn t stop crying It is just so prefect.

    17. I give this book 4 stars only because it s so short and the characters are not well and fully developed Great book, it would be even better with few pages

    18. Personal Response Personally I didn t think I would like this book, but as soon as I started reading it in class, I didn t want to put it down This book always left me on the edge of my seat, no matter what part I left off on There was always something that made me wonder what was going to happen next The only thing that I didn t like was that it was pretty predictable as to what is going to happen next, but yet there were still many predictions that could ve led up to the outcome of the cliffha [...]

    19. Personal Response I thought that this book was good because it had many plot twists The character changes so much as you continue to read through this book There is a lot happening in the book, and there is a lot to take under but it is really easy to follow Plot Summary Travis and Cooper have been best friends since day one One day can change everything can change someone s life forever Travis had colleges lining up for him with how he dives his life was completely set for him Darla Travis s gi [...]

    20. Personal Response At first this book bored me and I did not find it very interesting But as the book progressed, I started to find it hard to put it down As Travis started to get and sick every day, he started to have suicide thoughts with was very scary and intense The very end of the book left me confused, shook up, and I wanted to know who really killed Travis It was such an interesting ending, and I have never read a book like this one before I have thought about this book for a week now, [...]

    22. I apparently picked the wrong book when I thought this was Breathless by Jessica Warman it was an ebook library It has nothing to do with that book apparently I kind of found that out when I finished this book Surprisingly, I could not put Breathless down, even though it was the wrong book Breathless is a contemporary novel about euthanasia FYI, it s assistance when one wants to commit suicide Joyful story, is it not But Breathless caught my breath when I read the first word It s a powerful stor [...]

    23. Where do I even start with this book It s very underdeveloped, the plot is rushed, and the plot doesn t even make a whole lot of sense All of these five star reviews are confusing me Did we read the same book I m not sure Lurlene McDaniel even put a lot of potential into this, as I believe it was all typed up in about an hour, maybe less My cousin and I talked about this book for hours, and let me tell you about most of our conversation below SPOILER ALERT Travis gets cancer and has to get his l [...]

    24.

    26. Breathless is a gripping and compelling novel that dwells in a very controversial topic euthanasia.I loved the different perspectives that the book was written in Travis Emily, his kid sister Darla, his girlfriend and Cooper, his best friend since forever They all provide their insight and point of view to what had happened I loved how you could see what each individual were facing and how they were coping with Travis accident It gave a realistic portrayal to what a person in that circumstance w [...]

    28. Cover I liked the cover of this book It lets me know as a reader what the book is going to be about So I know that the guy on the cover is most likely the main character I also really like the reflection on this cover.What I liked about the book I really like that there are four main characters that each tell their side of the same story and everything is tied together I also really liked that the perspectives were somehow related to the main character This I would have to say was an emotional r [...]

    29. I love the book its amazing, the characters have great traits that you can t find now in a lot of Young Adult books in our generation, these characters are fresh air from another characters from another books twilight, The hunger games etc I love how the main character friend,girlfriend and sister care so deeply about him and doesn t want to see him in pain like he was when he had cancer This compassion had a great touch on this book that another books are missing I enjoy the ending, the ending [...]
