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.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
