Until Sweet Death Arrives by Amnon Binyamini
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Mental illness is much more devastating than physical illness. The reason is simple. Brain controls the whole body and if brain goes kaput. Whole body stops functioning. Alzheimer’s disease is especially cruel.
Nahum Patterson, happily married to Edna, is a talented journalist. He is not afraid to take on powerful people and exposes the wrong doings. He is highly regarded in the professional circles. But his life becomes pathetic due to his disease. He starts forgetting things but his enemies don’t forget.
The book is fast paced and keeps the interest going. The pace is good and the conditions of Nahum evokes sympathy.
4/ 5 stars.
