Is a wonderful book.

I just finished it and it is going on my favourite books list.

It was entertaining from beginning to end and I laughed out loud at much of it.

Yeah, NEH!

I just ordered this one a few days ago!

EW - from what I previewed, an old man 'leaves' his nursing home and has some final adventures to cap an already adventurous life.

But what do I know?

I'll provide an update in a week or two!!!!

The story switches between his current life and adventure, and his history.

I am smiling now just thinking about it again.

Let me know what you think.

Based on your review, I recommended it for our next book club selection.

Thanks, NEH!

I tried to find this at Chapters last weekend and they were out of stock. Glad you enjoyed it and now I want to read it even more.

Glad you are enjoying it.

I couldn't put it down, but didn't want it to end either - so I tried reading slowly
