Until Further Notice I Am Alive by Tom Lubbock

Until Further Notice I Am Alive is written by Tom Lubbock, a man who was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour and given only months to live. 

The tumour affected the parts of his brain that control speech and vocabulary. It was saddening yet fascinating to read how his speaking and reading skills decreased but he was still able to write about it.

 This book made me think a lot about the fragility of human life. In a split second we can be gone from this world- this is why this book was very sobering. It is not a long book, it only took me an hour to get through but it has really stuck with me. It is a very poignant read and I highly recommend it.
