    Adventure of a Lifetime

    The premise of the book sounded interesting. It caught my attention because my husband and I have an RV and enjoy spending time together traveling in it. Ella and John, in their eighties, have a motive to their madness. He has Alzheimer's and she is in the end stages of cancer. Against advice from their doctors and wishes of their two children, they pack up their RV and leave Michigan headed on a trip of a lifetime across the US for California and Disneyland. Their adventures are captured on the pages of this book along with their reminiscences of their life and trips with their children growing up. I admired the courage of Ella and the tenderness of John. She looked out for him and he, her when he was able. Traveling the old Route 66, they made many stops and visited museums, diners and campgrounds. I especially enjoyed the enteractions of the people they encountered. Ella could be quite feisty at times and definitely talked sailor talk at times. But overall it was an enjoyable read that I completed in two days. I checked this out from our public library and chose to write a review, but was not required to do so.

    The leisure seekers

    I was attracted to this story because I am a senior. It was a good if painful story dealing the decisions facing a married couple the wife with cancer her husband with advancing dementia.The decisions involve care medication housing the worry of family. the inherent expenses and the long term outlook. This is not fun stuff. Their cross country jaunt has humour and memory of better times.

    A little gem of a book

    The Leisure Seeker by by Michael Zadoorian 4 1/2 Stars. John has dementia and Ella has terminal cancer. Their story. Trying to recapture the memories of youth, their children, their RV and travelling, friends now deceased. A last trip on Route 66 to the West Coast and Disneyland. Their adventures along the way are light and funny but also so very sad. I am so glad that I read this book as my father (88 years old) is also going through dementia. My mother (86 years old) and I had our disagreements. Now, I see my mother in a different, positive light. She is now the caregiver to my Dad and I’m impressed with her caring ways. A must read for anyone who has these same issues.
