The Dead Moms Club: A Memoir about Death, Grief, and Surviving the Mother of All Losses Reviews

  • Melissa
    I've always thought it so interesting and peculiar that eventually every human will experience loss and grief, yet it is such a unique and personal experience. And again, people read nonfiction and memoirs about how to deal with loss, yet one person's coping mechanisms may be the exact opposite of w...

    First of all, this is the worst club ever and I would like to leave. That said, I did appreciate this book, especially after having a few years to adjust to my membership. My instinct when reading was to compare everything about the author's situation to mine. We were about the same age, our moms we...

    A warning to potential readers: don’t start this book unless you have time to finish it in one or two sittings. It’s that good. Spencer writes in an engaging, self-deprecating and chatty style about a topic that most of us will experience in our lives, and her observations are heart-felt a...

    To be totally honest, I know Kate IRL (brag) and read an early draft of this book (double brag) so you can take this review with NO grains of salt because, girl, I can be objective. This is a really funny, moving, vulnerable memoir about the biggest, worst loss in Kate’s life, and all the small...

    I’m (thankfully) not a member of the Dead Moms Club, but this book reduced me to a puddle of tears. Kate lays out the good, bad, and ugly parts of herself and her grief in a very real, relatable way. I found her tips on how to support those who are grieving or dealing with illness to be particu...

    "You have one long, messy, weird, beautiful life. People come in and out of it, live and die, and affect us in enormous and not-so-enormous ways. Your mom's death is now a piece of you, a new dent on the side of the strange, misshapen thing that is your life."***As a member of the Dead Moms Club for...

    I chose this book from the library to help supplement my research into others’ books of grief, as I am writing my own grief memoir about recurrent pregnancy loss. I adored the author’s total transparency, wit, and unabashed accounting of her ongoing grief experience. This made her journey ...

    Let's start off with why I'm here: I'm a part of this club. I never would've thought to order this book online if I wasn't. And I'm glad I did. My rating for this book is based on how much it helped me — and it helped me, hence the full rating. I would read this book again. I was sad I finished...
