    Funny, Enjoyable and Poignant, Well Written

    I enjoyed this book a lot because it is funny and heart-warming. The translation is well done and the story makes sense. It is the tale of Mr. Groen in his retirement home and the antics of he and his fellow residents, whom he calls "inmates". I recommend it, especially for seniors.

    "Old but not Dead Club"

    I really enjoyed this book. It's not my type of book however the book cover intrigued me .... the "old" man reminded it me of my father in law, now deceased. He was, not an old, crusty senior citizen, he was a senior citizen, set in his way and I loved him and miss him. Like Hendrik, he tried to enjoy life, he was computer savvy, had a mobility scooter to give him independence. This book, made me think about my own future, as a senior citizen. My father currently has mild dementia so I also can relate to one of the characters. It's not because you are aging that you don't know what you want. I love Hendrik's form of rebellion in forming a group: "Old but not Dead Club". I take it there's a second book but it doesn't seem to be translated yet. By the way, this translation was good, "nothing lost in translation ". Looking forward to the second book.

    Good

    Loved the book. It was funny, sometimes sad but very endearing. Made me want to look in the mirror as that might be my future. If it is, I would love to have a bunch of friends like these if I am in a retirement home. Great read
