This was a very disappointing book. I was expecting a thoughtful portrayal of the emotions and practical issues family members must deal with when a loved one is dying. For me, there was very little emotion. The relationship between the daughter and father boiled down to the things he had done to entertain her when she was growing up, all of which required lots of money. The daughter comes across as spoiled and materialistic, with no emotional depth. The father is only focused on leaving his mark on the world in a way that will garner lots of fame.

The one redeeming aspect is the portrayal of the hospice people. I have been a hospice volunteer for several years, and the description of the hospice nurses and their compassion was very accurate. It was also the only part of the book that had any real feeling. The descriptions of what they ate for breakfast had as much emotion as the father recollections of significant moments in his life.
