    I d rate this 4.5 stars.It has been said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing multiple times but expecting a different result Did I really believe I could read Michael Ausiello s lovely, bittersweet memoir Spoiler Alert The Hero Dies , a book of which its editor said, You ll cackle you ll sob, and not be a sobbing mess when it was done I mean, I cry watching the car commercial where the little boy gets a dog, and then when he s grown up and goes to college, the dog is old Color me insane, I guess Spoiler alert while I didn t sob through the entire book, I was pretty emotional.Michael Ausiello is one of my favorite go to sources for television related gossip and information I ve been following him since he wrote for Entertainment Weekly and TVGuide.com, and am an avid fan of the site he founded, TVLine.com In 2001, when he met Christopher Kit Cowan at a benefit, he was smitten instantaneously, both because of Kit s good looks and the easy banter they quickly fell into Their relationship took off, but like all relationships, dealt with some rough spots along the way Some challenges were common dealing with infidelity, financial independence, Kit s marijuana habit, Michael s emotional insecurities and some were a...

    I am not even sure how to review this book I literally just stopped crying from it Like super ugly crying I will be crying for days over this book and for Michael s loss Days This is a story about life And death And love It is a huge story about love The kind of love, even with all the troubles and trials that they had and Kit and Michael had all of those and then some that is what all of us want in our lives The kind of love that makes you want to die when your spouse dies but also helps you go on living when they are gone because you just have to I loved every second of this book, even when Kit was dying Which sounds horrible, but Michael made him so alive in this book, I feel like I knew him just a tiny bit and that my life is better because I knew him just a tiny bit And Michael s writing just takes you to every aspect of their lives together And the humor dark as it was holds it all together It was ver...

    Entertainment reporter Michael Ausiello has enjoyed immense success in his professional life, progressing from writing at a soaps magazine to Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide to his current job as co founder at TVLine.com Ausiello is well known for his snarky and knowledgeable insights about pop culture and TV But while Ausiello s career was taking off, he was going through immense personal anguish the death of his husband, Kit, from neuroendrocrine cancer in early 2015 Ausiello s memoir catalogues meeting Kit, thirteen years before his death, and also describes the heartbreaking journey of losing him to cancer with much of the trademark wit and humor we see in many of his entertainment posts I don t know what possessed me to request this book I love Ausiello, his reporting, and his columns, yes, but how I thought I d come out unscathed from an incredibly sad memoir about a lovely gay man losing his beloved husband to cancer I don t know Sure, parts of this memoir are funny and snarky, but much of it is just heartbreaking and gut wrenching. Good grief There s no real equivalent of reading about a man openly and honestly telling you about losing a great love of his life Ausiello s memoir goes back in forth in time While most of the book focuses on the present day learning about Kit s shocking diagnosis, how that affects couple, and ultimately leading up to his death Still, he also goes back to when...

    I don t think I can read this book again.I gave it five stars because it effected me deeply I didn t know Kit Cowan, and I don t know Michael Ausiello Despite that, Ausiello created such a vivid portrait of their relationship that I feel like I did, and by the time in the book that Cowan was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer not a spoiler, obviously , I wept with them I read the book wishing it were fiction instead of non, and sometimes cursing the fact that Ausiello was making me mourn an ending that had already happened.I acknowledge that how I feel about this book is colored by the fact that my stepfather died of cancer, and that the timeline was similar to Cowan s In fact, a lot of the book paralleled a lot of my life how my mother championed for my stepfather the way a sort of soulmate ship was solidified in the last year of their relationship because of the cancer Ausiello s obsession with pop culture reflecting my own at one point in the book I thought, This is just like this moment in Grey s Anatomy and in the next paragraph, Ausiello expressed that as well As such, how I feel about this book is deeply personal and somewhat cathartic.However, none of that would have existed if Ausiello were not the talented writer that he is The narrative flows well There s never a time when I wished there were ...

    Before I give my opinion on this book, can we all please take a minute to appreciate a great title Honestly, it is what first appealed to me and I think it is brilliant Ok, moment over.Have you ever read a book and thought How the hell am I suppose to review this This is that book for me There are so many emotions and thoughts going through my head, I honestly can not get them straight Michael Ausiello wrecked me This is my first time even hearing of Michael and I m actually glad for it I was able to go into this book with no knowledge of his writing style or personality and I loved it This brutally honest, ridiculously real account of his life with Kit amazed me I was sucked into their life together From the awkward first date to the devestating last breath, I felt it all No tells you exactly what to expect when you re loved one is dying but Michael put it all out there for the world Every Dirty Detail It didn t feel like I was reading his book, it felt like I was reading his diary The dark humor, the heartwarming way Kit and Mike were with each other, the heartbreaking battle with cancer, all of it was there Remarkable My only criticism is the final chapter I m really not sure what to make of it, but it doesn ...

    I guess I should have known based on the title that this was going to be heartbreaking Ya think But it was also a beautiful story of love and devotion and told with plenty of humor in the voice of the author audible version I ...

    How do you review a book that left you sobbing bucketfuls of tears, the sweep of tears that kept hitting you that you hid yourself in the loo to cry another bout and that your tears became so personal that you cried another round for intimate reasons And finally I rounded up the tear saga by sending a message sealing a hug, thanks and love to Michael Ausiello which he acknowledged and replied to.It has been such a sweet intimate book and my first experience of reading on gay love that I actually felt it so normal I ended up feeling that I won t have any rancour if either of my sons were to turn out in pink colour That s the power of books..they impact your thought process so subtly and yet intensely.Love is love, in any colour or orientation It empowers us to transcend our capacity to give Mike was such a caregiver to the cancer ridden Kit and h...

    From the very title to the synopsis provided, anyone expecting anything other than a heart wrenching, tear jerking story of love and devotion under the most odious of circumstances is sure to be disappointed I knew of Ausiello through my devotion to his much missed Ausiello Files column in Entertainment Weekly, so was prepared for liberal ...
