Please don't offer reviews that spoil it for others! The reader is very good, albeit, with somewhat of a monotone. This is one super long read/listen, some 100+ chapters that at times I thought would never end.

It is enlightening on many levels, culture, religion, parenting, prejudice, perceptions, illness. By the time I reached this woman's life at marriage I had some compassion for her, then I grew to loath her.

An interesting read, certainly not uplifting for me. My SPOILER!!! This is a perfect example to demonstrate: what not to say to your children & how to encourage your children; how to recognize signs of memory loss; the best reasons for talking openly with your family about illness & death. Make a will with clear instructions, as death comes for all.
