Typical bad writing style by Dan Brown but he tells a good story. This one wasn't as intriguing as the previous ones but he ended it better than the others. It was worth finishing, but the process was often painful.
At first I did not think I would like this book or the reader. But I stayed with it and ended up loving both. Great wit and wonderful relationships between the characters. Will go back now and listen to Work Song which I understand is the first book in this two book series.
I really enjoyed the story. Kept me interested throughout. My only issue was the strong language used in many portions of the book. I felt a lot of it was unnecessary. That was the reason for my overall rating of three. I also gave the narrator a three. Although I thought he did an excellent job it was more that the voice reminded me of someone much older than the main character. As the story progressed I became more and more engaged. Hopefully the next book won't have such strong language.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Well written, phenomenal story and wonderful humor even through the difficult times. I laughed and I cried, but mostly enjoyed. I loved the fact that the narrator read the story rather than tried to act out the different voices. Because of the way it was written you knew who was talking. I found it refreshing and believe my listening enjoyment was enhanced by having Dean Robertson read to me!
This is a book no one should miss. Mary Ann Schwalbe was a remarkable woman. There's probably a little bit of her in each of us and this book could help us discover it. I will definitely listen to this book again and again and will try to read as many of the books she and her son Will read.
Nothing. Way too many scientific facts and no way to know if they were accurate or not.
Reader did okay. Just not interesting dialogue.
Atkins diet minus processed meat. Not for me.
In a class of its own. Read like it was a true story. Gave a lot of insight into the dreaded disease of Alzheimer's
Very matter of factly read. I had trouble sometimes determining who was talking. Read like it was a text book. Very pleasant voice but not much inflection.
Alice and how she dealt with her diagnosis and her pursuit of help.
Made me take notice of how I react to people who actually have Alzheimer's. they are so deserving of respect and are often ignored or treated as if they aren't there. May we all learn a lesson from this family's experience. Even though fictional I'm sure not far from reality.
