One glimpse at the grief of losing a wife Dec 23, 2003
After I lost my wife, this book was one of the more helpful ones for me in dealing with my grief. Most books try to tell you how you should feel, or how you should feel ok about feeling. Whatever. This author never claims to have any clue about how the reader might be feeling. He just pours his own emotions onto the page - in poems, metaphors, however he can manage to express himself at the moment. For me, this was much more useful that the more directed help books. My emotions were often different than Robert's, but reading about his struggle made me feel less alone in my own.
Nice Cover but content is not for the grieving husband. Aug 21, 1998
This book trys to convey what grief is like through metaphors. I'm sorry my wife dieing is not the same as Bob's mother throwing away his old clothes and getting him new ones. Nor is it like drops of water being afraid to go over a water falls. Mr. Vogt turns to religion . I've read most of the book and his wife is not mentioned in it. He calls her"something".
