Good Read

I have just finished reading "Elizabeth is Missing" by Emma Healey.  I can only be described as old, now, and I fear dementia more than anything.  The book is all about dementia and it is a remarkable, very, very clever grafting together of a past life and a life that is never clear.  (As an aside, I thought the introduction of comments on various smells was very clever since memories in that sense are likely to be clearer that verbal or even visual memories.  Or so I have been led to believe.)  I really enjoyed this mystery story despite my misgivings, and the outcome is not one we had been led to expect - as with all good mystery stories.  I am no less fearful of dementia, but I do enjoy a good read, and this was certainly one good read.
