Stretched the imagination a bit, July 8 2009
Dealing with someone who indeed suffers from Alzheimers I found parts of this book resonated with me ... the inability to find words ... the lost look on the face ... the inability to complete sentences. The book depicted all these things remarkably well. However, the downfall I found was that towards the end of the book when one would believe the symptoms and ravages of Alzheimers would have indeed increased, the writer has this woman preparing a speech and delivering that same speech to people in the medical field. That I found much more than a little stretch. How could one who is so lost in the day to day routines even be able to do this? It made absolutely no sense to me and I couldn't even think this was in the least bit plausible.
