This non fiction account of the ups and downs of Hendrik Groen is a humourous read . Living in a retirement home he has plenty of material to fill a book with and I am so glad that he did .
The book contains his day to day life in diary format , details of his health, friendships , fears and hopes . There was plenty of moments in the book where you just sit back after reading a paragraph and just take in what he has said to you, he slips in details that often made a lump form in my throat , it's often deeply thought provoking , sometimes laugh out funny , sometimes tearjerking. This is a year in the life of what it is like for someone in a home, how they are treated , what they do, the things that matter most to them and I am so glad I got to read it. I just hope after he finished this he picked up his pen again and carried on writing. I recommend this book to any fans of non fiction diarys .
