  • Life isn't over when you're older

    Some authors have an ability to take a delicate, complex subject and make it enjoyable and meaningful. Annie Lyons does just that in Eudora Honeysett is Quite Well, Thank You. Eudora Honeysett is an eighty-five year old woman who lives alone. Physically, she does quite well swimming regularly and getting around to the shops. But emotionally, her life has been one filled with challenge. Eudora has always been so very responsible, always putting others’ needs ahead of her own. She is full of despair and contemplating how she would like to see her life end before the choice is taken away from her. Indeed, she begins exploring euthanasia in Switzerland. Then, one day a new young family moves in next door providing Eudora with something she didn’t even realize she was missing. Rose is the ten year old that lives next door to Eudora. She is full of endless energy, enthusiasm and has a forthright way of speaking. Eudora and Rose become great friends, and bring out the best in one another. They soon add a fellow octogenarian, Stanley, to their trio and the three grow to develop one of the most caring and respectful relationships I can remember in the literary world. The book is extremely moving. The characters are all well-developed and likeable. The book flows well and made me want to read on. Aging and the need to feel productive throughout our lives are themes in the book. Eudora’s past relationships and experiences in her life had kept her isolated for much of her later years: all too common in the way our culture perceives aging. It’s too bad we all don’t have a Rose to bring joy back into our lives as we enter our senior years. I listened to the audiobook edition of this book which was narrated by Nicolette McKenzie who gave a superb performance. The versatility in her voice captures the age, gender and personalties of the characters very well. I would recommend listening to the audiobook version of this book which enhanced an already wonderful story. Thanks to Netgalley and HarperCollins Audio UK for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.

  • Amazing book!

    What can I say? This is an amazing book which left me speechless and it is now one of my favourite books. I really loved it and highly recommend it! It was a delight to read, and for me, it was a heart filled, emotional book, which many ups and downs, which had me smiling one minute and crying the next. The book is about a lovely and sweet old lady called Eudora who befriends a cute little girl called Rosie and an older gentleman called Stanley. Together the trio have some lovely adventures and they grow to love each other very much. Throughout the book, Eudora wishes to die, as she does not feel as though she has much left to live for, and so she arranges to die in a clinic. Rosie and Stanley show her what life really is and the love they have for her affects her decision. She lives the last part of her life in happiness with her new friends, who are like family to her and she becomes very peaceful and content. The story has flashbacks to Eudora's life when she was younger and this was very interesting. I listened to the audio version of this book and this was a wonderful experience. The narrator was absolutely amazing and her performance was outstanding! I also loved the title of the book and the bright, colourful book cover.
