Kari from Escanaba, MI said on Goodreads:
It was alright, but I think to really enjoy it you have to be older. Older than I am anyway.
Monkey from Quincy, MA said on Goodreads:
i liked this book, but it's a little depressing, and could've used a little more information and less stories.....

Jan from Kirkland, WA said on Goodreads:
wonderful insight into growing old in a nursing home. great characters. great writer.
won the Pulitzer Prize for The Soul of a New Machine. House and Among Schoolchildren were national best sellers. Now this "crackerjack reporter with a common touch" (Philip Lopate, The Washington Post) has turned his talents to his most important and universal theme in this, a close-in study of old age in America. With care and exactitude, with the human compassion and humor for which he is famed, Kidder opens up a fascinating world to us that is, at the same time, foreign and compelling.
The narrative takes place entirely in a nursing home and focuses on two old men struggling with their circumstances, their memories, and their mortality.
