Summary

You and Me and Cancer Makes Three is a poetical journey about survival from cancer. An uplifting and enduring tale of his journey with cancer. John held his hands around his own mortality, yet leaves the clinic whole, with much more than he ever expected: he discovers the true meaning of friendship, redemption, and hope as told in his poetry. Discovering he had skin cancer, John Irvine had routine surgery in 2009. However, a few cells had gone feral and radical treatment became necessary. On the advice of his oncologist, he checked in at the Lions Cancer Lodge at Waikato Hospital in New Zealand for five weeks. In this unique poetic memoir, John Irvine tells his story with wit, honesty, and emotion. The friends he makes at Waikato will become your friends; you'll share frustration and laughter and bittersweet tears. You and Me and Cancer Makes Three by Pohutukawa Publishing Limited brings well known New Zealand poet and author to the spotlight with needed attention to cancer survivors.

"This is not a sob story."

I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

"This is not a sob story."

To be fair to the first line of this audiobook, it really wasn't a sob story, which I had kinda been expecting, considering the title. But, it was a very even novel(la?), brilliantly narrated.

Any additional comments?

After being diagnosed with Cancer, while at the Lion's Cancer Lodge, the author finds surprising joy in the midst of a serious illness. Well written and the narrator is good. I would definitely recommend this book.

I was given this audiobook in return for an unbiased review.

Good quick read

Any additional comments?

You and Me and Cancer makes Three by John Irvine was a good quick read. This is a poetic journey of one man's journey of survival of cancer. After finding out that he had skin cancer, John checks himself into Lion's Cancer Lodge at Waikato Hospital in New Zealand. He journals his five weeks there. I enjoyed hearing about his journey and what he learned in his time there.
