    I absolutely loved this book! I would classify this as literary fiction because of the eloquent prose, attention to character and detail, and the proper motivation to make me think and feel.

    Essentially My Name Is Joe is about a middle-aged man who has no family of his own, and working from home has kept him isolated from the outside world. He

    A short and emotional book, you'll likely be left with a renewed appreciation for life.

    This is a short quote that I liked from the book:


    You are not dying, and perception might lead you to believe there is still plenty of time for experience later. Someday you'll visit the Grand Canyon. Someday you'll find a job that y

    A wonderful book about one man's search for redemption and recognition before he dies. He finds solace and a family when he meets a women and her son.

    Stefan Bourque does a great job touching all our emotional buttons. It's very sad but also inspirational and sweet. The pace is slow and meandering, but in a good way, imitating a man's contemplation of

    I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads (a fact I am required to disclose). Although I had no previous exposure to Bourque's writing, I am looking forward to reading more of his work. Bourque has written a beautiful book with My Name Is Joe. Despite its heart breaking subject, the story both inspired me and restored my faith in the potential for h

    If I'd ever recommend a book, it has to be this one

    I read this book as part of a personal project to search for books in the 3 stars range, but which actually should be 5 stars, at least for me.

    After rounding up a couple of books, I wouldn't have imagined that I'd find the perfect book matching my criteria right off the bat. This is definitely a

    An incredibly moving story about a man told he was about to die and the power of human kindness. Stefan Bourque wrote a beautiful, heartwarming story. It was a wonderful read - in the first part of the book, you just read Joe's thoughts as he faces his dying alone - you really understand what it was like for a person facing a terminal diagnosis. Then he gives himself a going

    It's difficult to review this book without giving out spoilers. Suffice to say, I enjoyed the beginning or first third to half of the book when the character pontificates about the ironies of life, the growing loneliness of the digital age, the feelings of having a lack of a social circle and strong family relationships. I thought it was all fascinating and well-written. You kne

    A quick little feel good read. Joe has just been told he has terminal cancer, and he's looking back on his life, regretting choosing his career over any personal relationships to speak of. There is redemption, of course, as Rebecca and her son enter his life, and give him a reason to find joy, purpose, and love (not really romantic) in his final days. It's not exactly the most reali

    Didn't get good until the middle and then the end was so sad even though you knew the whole time it was going to be sad.

    This relatively short read takes an in-depth look at one man’s life once an end date is unceremoniously stamped upon it. Like Queen Latifah in Last Holiday, Joe has just learned th
