  • Started well

    This book had a very promising premise, in fact, it started off quite well. The thrust of the story involves the experiences of a young Australian woman called Kirsten, who agrees to travel to Kenya to care for an old colonialist with dementia (amongst other things) called Walt. He is very, very rich and lives in old school luxury from a bygone era - the main interest of the story involves the interaction between those who care for Walt and in particular the relationship between the interfering daughter and a loopy wife. Sounds good right? Well the first third was funny, a bit mad and genuinely interesting. However, after that it all became a bit the same. For me, returning to the book became a chore and I was quite happy to finish it. The story was short on surprises and the funny parts weren’t really that funny. Sure there were some interesting themes raised, particularly regarding living with a loved one with dementia and there were elements that read like a travel book - but it didn’t really hit any high points for me. A shame, because I was looking forward to it. 2 stars

    Thanks for your feedback!
