The Worrier's Guide to the End of the World, by Torre DeRoche | Book Review

Torre DeRoche is like the friend you have that is always off adventuring and has an amazing gift for writing those adventures down. Sometimes you wish you were right there with her, other times, you like reading about what she is experiencing, but you'd rather pass on the hard parts. In her book, The Worrier’s Guide to the End of the World: Love, Loss, and Other Catastrophes--through Italy, India, and Beyond, Torre is excellent at carrying you through both the good and the bad and she shares her insights on travel, love, life, and loss unpretentiously.

Torre writes with humor, sometimes dark humor, but she doesn't always stay there, sometimes you can feel the sun on your face and the grass on your back as she and her friend take roadside breaks on their pilgrimage through Italy. She eloquently weaves her grief and her processing of recent losses into the tapestry of her story. I also recommend her first book, Love with a Chance of Drowning.
