Book Review - Days Like These

About the Book
There are love stories and then there's the story of Kristian and Rachel Anderson. When Kristian wanted to show his wife Rachel how much he loved her after learning he was terminally ill, he ended up winning millions of hearts around the world, thanks to the now famous YouTube video he made for her 35th birthday. Social media is often seen as trivial and self-absorbed, but this heartfelt and moving tribute by a young Australian father of two in the midst of a battle with cancer, drew attention to a much larger story we all wanted to know more about and an ordeal so many families face alone.

Like Oprah, who invited Kristian and Rachel on her show, and Hugh Jackman, who helped make one of Kristian's dreams come true by appearing on the tribute, many of us didn't know him but we were so inspired by him that we felt like we did. He touched lives, gave hope and left behind a precious legacy that will mean a longer and better quality of life for thousands of cancer sufferers. Kristian’s faith was foundational to him and he openly shared his prayers, his struggles, and the hope he found in his relationship with God. His story, told in his own words from his blog entries, with additions from his beloved Rachel, will inspire others to know that even in the darkest moments, the light can shine through.

My Take on the Book
I have to say that it was quite impressed with this book, as it was so honest and forthright, as well as inspirational to me in general. This was an amazing story for anyone who is dealing with illness or anyone who has seen illness in action. This book not only shows the love of one person for another but also shows the strong faith of one and how this impacts the people around him. I was amazed at this story as I had never before heard about it and you can see how inspiring of a person he is. This is a story that you will want to share with others cannot keep only to yourself as it is a story that transcends so much and allows you to see the power of., Friends, family and our love will transcend all of this to help people no matter what the situation.
