    A Preview of Aging in a Fla. Retirement Community

    The fact that this book was published in 1994 and it probably took Michner a couple of years to put it together,I was impressed with his far thinking of what these retirement communities presently consist of. I do feel some of it was like a fantasy. The four elderly men building the plane, the double amputee able to play tennis. I did like the way he showed what the legal profession is doing to the medical profession. What I wonder about is what did the snake represent. I feel it was some kind of symbolism, as he went into great detail about it. I would welcome any thoughts on this. Thank you.

    One of Micheners best.

    Recessional is one of those books I read when it frist came out, I gave my first copy to a friend as I did several other copies I have bought since. This is a wonderful read, it is so real, and a great story. I will probably give this one to someone after I read it, and I will have to buy more. I can't say how often I have read this book, several, I seem to need to read it again every couple of years or so.

    A MUST FOR GERIATRIC NURSES AND CARETAKERS

    Fascinating fictional account of what could be the actual account of Assisted Living and Long Term Care. Excellent portrayal of life in the golden years.
