The End: The Human Experience Of Death (English Edition) eBook: Bianca Nogrady: interrupciones.net: Tienda Kindle

the end nogrady bianca

But we don't talk about it, we try not to think about it and anyone who breaks these unspoken taboos is viewed as being unnecessarily morbid. Through engaging, heartfelt anecdotes, Australian journalist Nogrady The Sixth Wave researched what it might be like to die—from those who have experienced it and those who have observed the experience intimately, such as caretakers. Medical advances, especially in the field of intensive care, over the past one hundred and fifty years have complicated the business of dying by altering the parameters seen as defining life. To some it might have seemed disrespectful to be treating her as part of the furniture as she took what were her very last breaths on this earth. Looking back on that experience, Bianca Nogrady realised she had so many questions. Bianca is never short of a subject to research or talk about. I am definitely glad that I have read this book, but, I wouldn't say that doing so has 'changed the way I think about death forever', as the enticing blurb on the back cover promises.

Did she know they were there? But we don't talk about it, we try not to think about it and anyone who breaks these unspoken taboos is viewed as being unnecessarily morbid. Everything is presented thoughtfully and respectfully. Death, in other words, is a process. This is an exploration of that experience, exploring the human experience of death from every anglethe spiritual, the historical, the physical, the metaphysical; from the perspective of those who have witnessed it, those who face it, and those who have somehow stepped back from it. Did she know they were there? But to us, it seemed almost normal that we should carry on being her boisterous, jovial grandchildren, filling her ears with the sounds of normality as she slipped away. The End investigates an experience common to every single one of us and does so in a way that is engaging, compelling, a bit funny and a bit quirky in places, heartbreaking in others, but most of all fascinating.

Death will come to all of us - it is one of few experiences that unites every single being on the planet.

But to us, it seemed almost normal that we should carry on being her boisterous, jovial grandchildren, filling her ears with the sounds of normality as she slipped away.

Yet many who have been present at the death of a loved one talk of it as being a gift, they have taken part in a profound moment. The End explores the experience of death from every angle - the physiological, the philosophical, the spiritual - to answer that question we so often ponder but rarely ask; what is it like to die?

What was she experiencing as the spark of life that had sustained her for 87 years finally flickered out? But at the other end of a life, death is hidden, taboo, mysterious, fearful, rarely shared and often a lonely, dark book-end.
