Sometimes you can see some kind of reminiscence with "The Notebook".
I liked that the author shows that the elderly are not useless creatures, whose mind is not suitable anymore, but as people who despite their age and illness, can feel, think, be ready for adventure. In the end, the person remains in its essences until the last minutes of life. The physical body is deteriorating, but not character traits. In general, this book is simple in content and on the story, and its theme - nothing new.

I tried to give this a 4.5 star rating; 4 isn't enough, but 5s should be given very sparingly, in my opinion.

Anyway, this is a really great book - especially for summer. It's fast paced and well written, and Richtel does a terrific job of coaxing the reader on to the next chapter, and then the chapter after that....

I would have changed a few little details, but - overall - I recommend it to people who enjoy reading thrillers.
