The story gives a very straightforward view of what it's like to progress through this illness from the viewpoint of the person affected. I thought it to be a little bit TOO much to the point and predictable, but it kept my attention nonetheless. I simply thought it could be brought about scenarios in a more subtle manner. What it did was lay things out simply and pretty much let the reader see what was happening before it happened.
While the story was good, I wonder about how the progression of the disease is portrayed. Her descent from a psychology professor who is at the top of her class to someone who mistakes her shorts for a bra is very rapid, and in simply reading it and not knowing a whole lot about dementia, seems too quick.
I would love to hear the opinions of others who have read this who know more about the disease. It's not my area of interest, or expertise, but I enjoyed it and would recommend it as a quick read to anyone.
