The excerpt made me intrigued to read “The Red Address Book.” The first chapter regarding the main character’s situation as a very elderly person isolated in her home was well written and I found it to be true to life based on my experiences with the elderly. The author demonstrates how an elderly individual is perceived as a shadow by his/her caregivers who talk at the individual, but don’t converse with him/her or make an attempt to get to know them. The tragedy in the character’s family and her mother’s sending out on her own elicits sympathy and the description of the beginnings of her employment by the rich woman interested me enough to want to continue the book. I found the author’s use of the computer to write her story and reach out to her small family circle to be believable.
