The disintegration of self,

This review is from: Scar Tissue (Paperback)
This novel, short-listed for the Booker Prize, is about the narrator's relationship with his mother, who is suffering from dementia, and how this affects him and his other relationships. I found it to be revealing and well-written, but at the end felt somewhat disappointed. I think I just found it very difficult to empathise with the central character; he just didn't come alive for me. I also agree with the other reviewer that the other characters were not described in sufficient detail to elicit much of a reaction.
