If you are in need of a good laugh, check this book out - whether you love to travel, have an aging parent, or are aging yourself, you will chuckle continually at the anecdotes, which may be exaggerated yet are all too realistic.
i LOVED this book. I could really relate to Jane and her mother. many times i thought of my mother and what it would be like to travel with her. totally right on. i had a lot of laughs from the situations and i am totally surprised as the negative comments. of course i am as off beat as Jane, though a different sort of personality but i love her writing style ...she was recommended me by someone in my wonderful book club and now i am reading two more of her books and enjoying every minute of it.
Old people belong in old folk's homes.
I choose this book because the title sounded funny and I had taken my aging Mum to France and was interested in the author's experience. Mediocre and repeatitive writing. I felt the writing focused more on the author's discontentment with her mother. Having done this myself I can relate to those frustrating moments and to describe 1-2 x is fine but not over and over to fill ink on a page.
Jane tells her story in a humerous way. A lot of us can relate to her experiences. When you reach a certain age and are dealing with those who are elderly and/or infirm, it gets to be a struggle to maintain your sense of humour and dignity, when absolutely every small thing that makes it hard for the other, becomes a source of immense frustration for you.

However do they cope?
A must read if you plan on travelling with your elderly mother! My only complaint with the writing is that there was some repetition in the comments / descriptions. (like she forgot she already wrote about it). Some people might think the daughter is selfish and mean, but I get where she is coming from.
while badly written, i laughed and laughed at the experiences.
and yes the daughter did make peace with her mother
totally negative and a waste of time. the worst book I've ever read.
By the end of this book, I really understood why the author's mother disliked her daughter. I can only concur.
