I found this book interesting to read, as it covered topics not commonly talked about. At times, it wasn't easy to determine what the author was trying to convey to the reader, as the language was very poetic (using metaphors to such a degree as to make the reader stop and try to figure out the meaning). For me, it abruptly stopped the flow of the story. I was expecting to have the epilogue bring all of the fibers of the story together, rather than leave me hanging as to whether the main characters could have a life together. I'm really getting rather fed up with authors that leave the rest of the story unsaid. I buy a book to take me into worlds that I wouldn't normally experience, so an unfinished story to me just feels like a lazy author who couldn't figure out a way to complete the novel in a believable way.
not a difficult read but a nice story
The story focuses on an Alzheimer patient who goes wandering during the winter when his wife/caregiver leaves him for a few mintes to check her mailbox. The story introduces us to several emotionally wounded individuals who are ultimately linked. I was left with the sense that I would like to have discussed the ethical issues that arose at the conclusion with a fellow reader. It was well written and mostly believable but a tough subject.
An tale that relies on character development and motivation to keep the reader engaged. They are believable and sympathetic. The novel also gives a quick and sobering peek in to the life of a caregiver of someone with dementia.
