4.0 out of 5 stars Within and without, disintegration, 28 Jan 2011
This review is from: There Were No Windows (Paperback)
I found it hard at first to get into this book (whereas I loved the other Blitz novel, 'Doreen'), because I feared being imprisoned in the consciousness of a crazy old woman, and of course didn't know the real woman on whom she was based. But I picked it up again, and found it to be excellent. Claire Temple is seen from the outside, too, by several different characters, and this relieves the tension. We note her different moods - charming to her callers, horrible to her carers, and still, at eighty, craving the attention of men. As Julia Briggs says, there aren't many books about people with Alzheimer's. But it is a subject we should all be thinking about.
