really liked it

This is a sweet little story you can read in about an hour that lovingly describes a slow decline into dementia and its impact on a man’s family. Both tragic AND inspirational.

It’s quite amazing what the author has managed to capture in such a short piece. Grandpa’s fear after the initial diagnosis, explaining what’s going to happen to his beloved grandson, how grandpa’s relationships with both son and grandson evolve as the disease advances, and how big a role love plays all along. The grandfather and grandson Noah are particularly endearing characters and the read is surprisingly emotional. Yes, I cried at the end.

Like all the Backman books I’ve read, this is a winner.
