The first person format of a diseased mind was difficult for me to follow. However, it gave me incite of how a person with dementia must feel, sometimes I did not know where I was or how I got there!

I feel this is a very good book, full of everyday things and no really happy ending. I have given it to a friend, who likes Jodi Picoult, to see how she feels about it.

Also, I was surprised at the real murderer, I really thought it was going to be someone else.

A very sad but worthwhile book to read. It is hard to put down. Less than a two day read, even though I had a lot of backtracking to do to figure out where the plot was going.

It has now been almost two weeks since I have read this book, this is one of those books that will haunt you for a long time to come. Overall belated impression this is one of the saddest and scariest books I think I have ever read. This is a horror tale that can happen to anyone.
