    Morningside Heights
    Spence Robin is a celebrated scholar who develops early onset Alzheimers disease. I felt this had the potential to explore what a family would go through in caring for a family member and their struggles which it did to a degree. The problem I had was that I didn't find any of these characters sympathetic at all. I didn't really care what happened to them and it made it difficult to finish it. I will not be recommending it to others.

    Morningside Heights by Joshua Henkin
    I found Morningside Heights by Joshua Henkin such a depressing story. Perhaps it is because we are in a pandemic and a member of my family suffers from Parkinson's disease but I struggled to get through this book. I was looking for "the sweeping and compassionate novel" but was disappointed. I like to read a book where you care about the characters but I never cared about them. I found Arlo especially annoying where he enters his stepsister's room and cuts off her hair. What was that about! I also didn't like this book because I just read The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman and I loved that book and its endearing characters. This book was not the book for me.
