Very hard to get into. You know where things are going, but it takes forever to get there.

Not sugar coating cancer or marriage. Cancer is horrible, marriage is difficult. Some cancers are incurable and take effect quite quickly, some marriages are mysterious while being beautiful nonetheless. Love is a crazy force, much talked about and little understood. We think we can control our feelings but we can't, we can only, hopefully, control our actions. We think if we do all the right things; eating correctly, exercising, get regular checkups, that we can control our health. We can't, we maybe can assist the body in remaining healthy but outcomes vary.
This book is quiet, almost boring, but it leaves lasting pictures in the mind. A young man mopping the kitchen floor in the apartment of a woman he barely knows. A middle-aged, sharp tongued, bad-breathed woman pretending to be asleep with slitted eyes of sharp perception and keen mind watching and understanding. A youngish married woman sitting on a bus next to the man she is in in love with, touching hands and experiencing such heartbreak that the reader experiences it too.
There are so many scenes stored in my mind from this book. It is worth reading.
