Hi, I,ve been waiting in vain for someone to comment on the above book so that I could reply!
I enjoyed the read and liked the author,s style of short chapters.He portrays typical, disfunctional, family life well, I thought.
I liked George, the main character, and felt sucked into his story from the start.His spiral into depression after retirement is described well. He finds it difficult to deal with family problems; becomes paranoid about his health and retreats into his own world. I think that the author has researched the subject well.
The adult children have their own traumas but this doesn,t detract from the main story line of George,s journey.
All the threads were drawn together well at the end of this sad, but comical story.
