    PDF Turn of Mind Kindle #180; Turn of eBook #238; #208; babyandbeyondshowcouk turn book, mind book, Turn of mobile, Turn of Mind KindleI was really surprised how much I wasn't blown away by this book I thought I would be It's a Powell's choice It has an interesting premise a woman with Alzheimer's is the main suspect in the murder of her best friend The writing was interesting consisting of some notes from the main character Jennifer's caretaker children and the murdered friend Amanda but mainly from Jennifer's POV skipping around in time but also skipping around from good memory day to hardly memory at all It sounds good right?The ending was kind of a letdown spoilers ahead I didn't get enough of these friends' relationship so when you find out that Amanda knew about Jennifer's husband stealing money meh I didn't care that much? And when you find out that Amanda was hassling Jennifer about the money I still didn't care much And I started to feel like Amanda was a jerk Because Jennifer's husband is dead and Jennifer has Alzheimer's I mean seriou

    PDF Turn of Mind Kindle #180; Turn of eBook #238; #208; babyandbeyondshowcouk turn book, mind book, Turn of mobile, Turn of Mind KindleThis novel chooses an unusual perspective for its narrator and in my view accomplishes it well Dr Jennifer White is a retired orthopedic surgeon self retired apparently due to self recognized signs of developing dementia All the action of the novel is seen through her eyes filtered through her changing brain There is a central mystery a murder and all the various personalities and plot points are revealed but in completely non traditional ways through the fragmented thoughts and words of this deteriorating person struggling to maintain herself and her worldThe mystery is not as important as the portrait of the person and the illness what Alzheimers and other dementias do to the person th

    PDF Turn of Mind Kindle #180; Turn of eBook #238; #208; babyandbeyondshowcouk turn book, mind book, Turn of mobile, Turn of Mind KindleInteresting premise but ultimately over hyped Grim throughout with no glimmer of anything The twist was surprising but overall I was just glad to be done with this I was quite interested in the whodunit part of the plot for the first half or so of the book but the relentless deterioration of the main character made that seem unimportant by the time the murderer was revealedupdate Oct 4 2014 check out Elizabeth is Missing for a novel with a somewhat similar storyline executed in a much satisfying way

    PDF Turn of Mind Kindle #180; Turn of eBook #238; #208; babyandbeyondshowcouk turn book, mind book, Turn of mobile, Turn of Mind KindleWhat an incredibly ambitious book Very brave piece of fiction Perhaps the craft evident in this book is of little interest to non writers but what an incredible undertaking to tell a story from the POV of woman succumbing to the ravages of Alzheimer's Disease The story began in first person moved to second person as the illness progressed and finally to third person to show that Dr Jennifer White was no longer an integrated personality Brilliant Such a surprising but wholly believable ending Wonderfully thoughtful and important work
