Here Among UsHere Among Us by Maggie Harryman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a different sort of book for me to read.  I initially chose to read it due to its coverage of Alzheimer's.  I can relate to that because my dad has this disease.  I saw a few things that reminded me of him as I read through the book, and this portion truly resonated with me.

I am sad to say that I was unable to connect with any of the characters in the book.  It did cover issues of siblings, death, and much more, and the author did a fantastic job of writing about these issues.  But I just could not connect with them, and that is just my issue, and mine alone.  Nothing against the author.

I could have done without the profanity.  It did keep me from enjoying this book as much as I would have liked to.  There were some sexual issues, but no bedroom scenes from what I could see.  I believe that if the author had shortened the book or possibly divided it into two books, I would have enjoyed the book more.  But again, that is my opinion.

If you are looking for a book that covers the issue of Alzheimer's and more, this may just be the book for you.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
