First, a big thank you to Kristin of Always with a Book – her review caused me to get this book – and it was a fantastic recommendation.
I will never regret reading this book – although the subject matter sounds very sad - in fact it gave me some real insight into people with dementia and their carers. That all sounds very worthy – and I suppose it is – but it is also very entertaining.
There is also a secondary story line about a woman whose husband commits suicide – a bundle of laughs, right – well no, but it is integrated into the story in a meaningful way.
I agree with Kristin that this book is 'absolutely heartbreakingly beautiful… thought provoking… and a compelling read'
Everyone should read this book – and for anyone caring for someone losing their marbles, it is just about mandatory.
This book is not a weepie despite what I have said about it. And it is a must read – even though the author is Australian (just joking!)
