Haematemesis

1 Sep

I was given a copy of this book by the author, Henry G. Sheppard, in exchange for an honest review.

I will be brutally honest. This book is brilliant!

It charts Henry’s dealing with a second bout of leukemia he suffered and the ramifications of it. The subject is dealt with with a combination of brutal honesty and a twisted sense of humour.

I was literally crying with laughter reading some parts. And then felt awful for laughing at poor Henry’s battle for life.

Henry’s dealings with the Australian public health system will strike a chord with many readers.

It’s a short book, only around a 100 pages, but I recommend that anyone who knows someone going through chemotherapy should read it. It will give you an understanding of the process. It will also make you laugh. A lot.
