The Leisure Seeker review Û 108 H Ella as his vigilant copilot John steers their '78 Leisure Seeker RV along the forgotten roads of Route 66 toward Disneyland in search of a past they're having a damned hard time remembering Yet Ella is determined to prove that when it comes to life you can go back for seconds even when everyone says you can'. My boyfriend and I have a thing where we pick out books for each other as a surprise He thought that I would like this because it was about two of my favorite things road trips and Disneyland What he didn t realize is this book was probably the most emotional read I have ever encounteredMichael Zadorrian write a novel about the end of life Ella who is dying from cancer decides to pack up her RV and take route 66 to Disneyland Her husband suffers from Alzheimer s and clueless to her plan He lives minute to minute and goes along with her instructions Ella s adult children and doctors are very much against this trip but helpless as Ella s desire for one last vacation supersedes their wishesI have had two family members with Alzheimer s and this story perfectly conveyed the disease and frustration that comes with the territory It actually felt like Zadoorian took scenarios and conversations from my own life It was eerie He has obviously encountered this in his own life because it was pitch perfect Personally heartbreaking to read was Ella going against the wishes of her very concerned children My mom died of cancer a few years ago and I had the same conversation with her with regard to stopping treatment As a child you have to respect your parent s wishes but that doesn t mean that it s easy or that you don t beg them to reconsider This was painful to read in the bookI found a majority of the story very upsetting to read but only because it was dead on with emotions that I have felt or situations that I have encountered This sounds weird but as a reader I felt like the author got me I found the book impossible to put down

The Leisure Seeker review Û 108 Eighties Ella suffers from cancer and John has Alzheimer's Yearning for one last adventure the self proclaimed down on their luck geezers kidnap themselves from the adult children and doctors who seem to run their lives and steal away from their home in suburban Detroit on a forbidden vacation of rediscoveryWit. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish from the first paragraph to the last It never sagged This is a story about a couple Ella and John Robina They have been married over fifty years They are both in their eighties Both are sick John with Alzheimer s and Ella with cancer So they must decide what to do with their lives Yes Ella was sure They needed a vacation What could be better than to take Route 66 again that route that they so often traveled when they were young and the family was four before the kids left home While they travel they haul out their projector and slides and look again at their lives They have cocktails grill their food snooze take little naps and drive all the way to Disneyland in California She has her little blue pills Does that sound sad and depressing Yes I supposed it might but think they are both in their eighties and they have had good lives It is not hard to believe that the book could prove to be thoughtful and down to earth and wise But the author goes one step further and makes it very very funny I laughed on every page I did You laugh and you smile and you shed a melancholic tear occasionally Mostly you laugh and maybe think a teeny bit about how you want to live your own life The message is not all that astounding What is astounding is the humor embedded in the story Yes I really did laugh out loud and exclaim as the events unfolded You see the book is about living and enjoying life than about its end Ella and John and the characters they meet on their travels are very ordinary people The conversations are so classically ordinary that you cannot help but smile There is uite a bit of irony in the humorI listened to the audiobook The narration by Judith West was superb Ella s voice was of a spunky old woman and John had a crusty solid baritone When the narrator spoke for them it felt like I was overhearing a true conversation between two old geezers When I think now of Ella I know how she sounds and that is Ella The same is true of John Voice says a lot about a person The narration gets five stars So why only four stars for the book Well because the situation is in fact not extraordinary It felt so real such a perfect description of two old geezers Does that means it is worth five stars To perfectly capture this old couple their lives and their dialogs their sorrows and happiness and fear It is all there It is just a personal thing I think I would readily give a book filled with real facts that is also engagingly written five stars My head tells me this is all wrong Maybe it is the author that builds a story from nothing that creates with his words an imaginary world that seems genuinely real that is the most talented I did enjoy every minute listening to this audiobook Heck I will give it five Why not It is not amazing but I really did love it I didn t just like it a lot It was better than thatI am currently listening to the audiobook The Leisure Seeker It is fabulous Why Because every line is perfect Every damn line I do not think I am going to write a review I am just sucking it all up I cannot copy that sentence and that sentence and that Take my word for it Read the book description and just trust me on this Read this book I listened to the audiobook You can also go to Audible write in the title and listen to the sampleThis book will have you smiling It is true I have just begun so I cannot be sure about the ending OK maybe I will say something on completionThis is still on sale at Audible for USD416 Narration by Judith West
