I just finished this book. All 113 pages. I wonder why an author would decide to write this story about such a heartwrenching subject without spending any time at all with actual caregivers or those who live with this disease. According to his preface, he did research from websites. That's it? Needless to say, this story lacked any type of emotion. The main characters included a family of Mom, Dad, daughter and Grandma. There was no character deveopement to speak of. I am not a critic but I am an avid reader who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimers Disease at age 55. For as long as I am able I want to read about my disease. Mostly about how others with AD and their caregivers cope on a daily basis. Unfortunately this author has failed to give the reader any real insight into the lives of those who suffer from Alzheimer's Disease and those who love and care for them. There are so many beautiful stories out there. This just isn't one if them. :(

I feel that this book is to rushed, when the father dies there is no true emotions. When you write a book you have to have that emotion or the book is no longer good. I also think that to write a book about a loved one with alzheimers you would need to truly know how it feels, how the change in there life effects them. In the beginning you should have flash backs to what you and the father did to show that connection between each other a the mother as well. Thats all. Thank you.
