Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this course because the class centers around a dark topic (immortality and mortality). However, it allows you to think about these two subjects that a lot of people (myself included) would ignore in their day to day lives, though the threat of death looms over us every day. We read four books and wrote three response papers. Through the books and the papers, we pondered the idea of death and immortality.
We never know whether we're going to make it to tomorrow. We don't know what happens after we die. It's sad to think about it, but it's real and it's there and it will happen one day. The most important piece of advice that I took away from this course this past semester is simple: Carpe Diem. Live life to the fullest, do not hold grudges, forgive, learn, and live every day of your life because you never know when this is all over.
