I did not like this book. It's a platform for characters, who are self-involved to the point of self over anyone else. The ending illuminates the ultimate self-involvement and came as a relief, because it meant the book was over.
This book is targeted at tourism and the photos are gorgeous with absolutely no hint of the dirt and poverty that lurks just out of view of the camera lens. Even knowing that, I thoroughly enjoyed all the photos of places I've been and of the Hilton Hotel, where we stay.
Wow! This book was absolutely on point. It was great to hear another person muddling along with me. She helped clarify distinctions between assisted living, nursing home, etc. For everyone with an aging parent.
This book is so stuffed with historical fact, I slowed down to read and digest so many facts. My information from Cleopatra came from movies starring Elizabeth Taylor. Who knew Cleopatra wasn't even a beauty??! Incredible book. Well worth the read.
