The Old You by Louise Voss
The Old You by Louise Voss has an intriguing premise. For Lynn Naismith the onset of dementia in her husband Ed is devastating, but there are a few things that confuse her about the situation. Although Lynn puts some worrisome situations out of her mind, she does question certain events. Not too seriously, though.
Unfortunately, I found the pacing slow and uneven until the latter part of the novel, at which point the twists just annoyed me. It was really difficult to sympathize with any of the characters.
Not much of the novel rang true for me, and I really lost patience with the bit about the clinical trial. Lynn's acceptance of all of the trial and all of the discrepancies and inconsistencies was too hard to accept.
