** spoiler alert ** This book affected me greatly. Having recently had someone close to me pass away, it was difficult to read a book about someone preparing for the end of their life. I liked the protagonist, Ptolemy, and it was interesting to see his transformation back into reality from his dementia. Because my grandmother had dementia/senility it was certainly a tough read, but one that I enjoyed in a bittersweet sort of way.
