An amazing insight into the lives of those who have lived to over a hundred, some of the subjects happy, celebrating their many years of life, some sad and some confused, their words describing their own thoughts and feelings. What a lot we all have to learn from these individuals and their approach to their lives. Neither should their Carers be forgotten. The pictures of each individual brought their words to life, words and picture forming a whole and enhancing the experience of this warm but not always happy book. How beautiful a centenarian can look. I would highly recommend Fading Light: Portraits of Centenarians to all those who are fascinated by life and the passing time. It is a book to be shared and talked about.
