    Just finished the book "Goodbye" I gave the book 5 stars.The stories are about love, really, not sadness. I got the book thinking I would be sad reading them but that wasn't the case,these stories make you feel good! Of course there is sadness but the book is all about love! I think everyone should get this book and read these "gives you a warm fuzzy feeling stories. I read the book in one afternoon.

    Okay, so my essay "Intersections" happens to have been selected to appear in this anthology---but I still want to say that it's definitely a good read for anyone who has experienced loss. I say: buy it! :)

    A really moving book with a compilation of short stories of how people dealt and said their goodbyes.Some of those stories got me teary-eyed as I read them,especially those caused mostly by degenerative diseases like Alhezeimers. Watching the person you love slowly fading away,and having to be strong enough not to cry so that they don't have to feel like they are a burden to their loved ones must be hard,but in the end this stories were inspirational.Heartwarming,remembering them through their h [...]

    A friend contributed an essay to this book and that was my reason for choosing it to read. I think each contribution, on its own, was well written and absorbing. However, I had to read the book in small segments, because the goodbye was often due to a death and one emotionally moving story after another was too much for me.

    Very good reading. Covers a variety of good-bys. should each every on at some time.

    I was disappointed in this book. I expected it to be about end of life good-byes. Although there were some, it was not. There were humorous stories intermixed with the serious. Each story is written by a different author, some really good, some I struggled with, wondering what they were saying good-bye to.
