Ahdity ,

Loved the book, show measured up

I haven’t read the book in probably a decade, but I think the show did a good job at capturing the essence of the book, although less personal in the mind of Ptolemy. The book really helped me understand Alzheimer’s and how it affects people.

Good read

Read this book for book club and was pleasantly surprised by how well the author depicted each character and formed a very interesting story.

One worth reading several times

What a beautiful tale. I look forward to the gift of finding it in my library years from now and reading it again.
