Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
This book started out strong, then degenerated into a mess as it kept adding characters and wandering aimlessly between storylines. First it was a pretty effective 1st person POV story of a young woman who is experiencing the gradual dissolution of her known world through the progression of Alzheimer's. It seems set to tackle some of the challenging issues of autonomy, self-determination, and the ability to provide informed consent as cognition declines, wrapped up in a sweet love story. Then we start muddying the story with other 1st person POV characters, dealing with completely different issues and concerns, and attempting to weave them together.
I found myself first annoyed, then losing interest. I decided to DNF at 75% when another book I had on hold at the library became available.
Audiobook version, borrowed from my public library. The performances by Therese Plummer and Barrie Kreinik were very good.
