Almost Borning

I loved the her book "Lovely Bones". It was well written and kept you thinking. Her new book "Almost Moon" was slow moving and I found a little confusing. The saying "You can't judge a book by it's cover" should say "You can't judge a book by it's author". This is not the first time I bought a book just because of the author, I have done it a lot of times, but with this book I missed judged. I am not saying it is a bad book, just not her best.

The book is about a daughter whose mother has dementia/Alzheimer and does not remember her from one minute to the next. She goes over to her mom's and finally has had enough, there is no what to put it nicely, she puts her mom out of her misery. After that the book goes down hill I think; the author goes back and forth from the daughters childhood, to marriage, to the present.

I will still read what this author writes, I will just start taking my husband's advise and check them out instead of buying books all the time.
