5.0 out of 5 stars The journey of growing old - both physically and emotionally - explored sensitively and beautifully, 19 Mar 2014
This review is from: The Night Guest (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really enjoyed this book - it is sensitively written and a fantastic story which explores the process of growing age, both physically, growing weary and tired, but also mentally through emotions and thoughts.
The story is about a lady who is growing older and wakes one morning believing she can hear a tiger in her room. She is, of course, assessed by medical practitioners and provided with a care package which includes a nurse who visits daily - the nurse also grew up in an area close to where the main character was also brought up which provides opportunities for reminiscing however this also brings back painful memories. The story continues at a strong pace which keeps the reader enthralled but also brings many serious questions about the treatment of the elderly and how one grows old (hopefully gracefully but often not)
