Chief Complaint: Brain Tumor by John Kerastas
Fun and enlightening with a side of emotion
I just want to start by saying this is one of the most humorous books that I have read in a while.
(this could be due to the fact that I usually read crime novels/thrillers… but moving on..)
John has a unique way of dealing with his diagnosis of a brain tumor. He uses humor.
He takes you through his diagnosis and procedures dealing with his tumor and makes it an interesting experience.
This book is great for anyone looking for a memoir of someone going through a similar experience or for family members as well. Whats great about it is that is also great for the average reader.
John has a great writing style that keeps you hanging on throughout the whole book. It is short as well, it only took me a few hours to read.
Clear an afternoon and pick up a copy. You will not regret it.
5/5 stars. I loved John’s sense of humor and his ability to tell his story through this.
Also, it takes place in Chicago, so I liked it even more… haha.
Read ahead for spoilers
I was so sad when they had to put the dog down. Putting a pet down is so sad.
