Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty

Four Stars

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty is a book I doubt I would have read except for one of my book clubs. (Note: This is one of the reasons to be in a book club–to read books we would never choose on our own.) Although the topic of a mortician’s memoir assumes a macabre tone, Doughty manages to surprise the reader with humor, compassion, insight, and future consideration through her experience working in a crematorium. I give it four stars because I don’t agree with the author’s life philosophy, but I am impressed by her writing prowess in sharing her personal story.
