I've watched and read many sad stories before. And the story is a ride of ups, downs and the occasional bit of relief to tide you over for the next essential piece of the sad story - we are reading or watching a story for entertainment and/or to learn something. There has to be some relief or it's torture.
This read feels like a punch of sadness with a slap of harrowing followed by a nudge of incomprehension for the characters life changing pain.
Its a good premise. We have all seen these types of real stories in the news and the author I believe has had a personal tragedy / But the book is a very difficult read because it's just so-so gut wrenchingly sad! Consistently. Even Shindlers List provided some pieces of restbite.
A good book for those that enjoy weeping and feeling miserable. And I'm not being funny as I do know people who lap up sad stories real or fictional, like it's ice cream. I'm just not one of them.
Dylan is Max and Pip's two year old son. He has brain damage as a result of a tumour that couldn't be fully removed. Max and Pip now face the unenviable task of deciding between giving Dylan treatment which may prolong his life, but not cure him. Or, provide him with palliative care until he dies. A heart-rending decision ♥️
"Dylan’s brain damage is irreparable. If he lives, he will not walk or talk. He will not be able to communicate his needs, or even his feelings. Those are basic human functions, and my opinion – both as a doctor and as a fellow human being – is that there is little life without those functions."
The story is told from the points of view of Max and Pip. And understandably this can be hard to read, Macintosh writes so beautifully, and the emotions come flooding through the pages.
We also get the added point of view of Doctor Leila Khalili. I liked her chapters as we got to see the medical and professional side of the story. Also, it was an insight into how cases similar to Dylan can have an effect on the professional people who care for them.
Max and Pip can't come to a joint decision, so, it's up to the courts to decide. And this is where the story takes on a different path.
"You can fight and fight for what you want to happen, but sometimes it’s just time. Sometimes you have to know when to give up."
As I have already said Macintosh has a way with words. This book makes you stop and think 😊
I'm glad I attended the book's launch 😊 as it was a more insightful aspect to the book, and put things into perspective.
I have spent time in these places...ICUs for children and feel somehow that is a cheapshot making entertainment out of it.
I've been a bit troubled lately about a new tendancy for authors in this genre to use the vulnerability of children to add edge to their narratives.
Bringing me to the issue of genre. I have enjoyed Clair Macintosh in the padt. I find her style to be better than many....even though she does not understand some of the basics of grammar ....."It was us who did it" argh! Nonetheless she tells a good story in reasonably good English.
However this is not a 'reasonably good' story. It is a documentary about terminal illness in children. A 'story' which can only end in incalculable misery. Reading the literally incredible flush faced adoring reviews then people must love to read about possibly the most terrible life event possible and to be brought to their knees with misery as I would have been if I had continued with this horrible book.
Apparently the author suffered a terrible loss, as have many of us. Tragedy does not cover it and she has my deepest sympathy. I know these places, the strangely intimate friendships transiently made, the shared kitchen, the greasy pizza and I so understand the knitting. All of these painfully vivid minutae overlying yawning acutely suspensful tragedy as they surely do.
But don't drag me through a novel full! It is not the subject of a novel and certainly not one for this genre.
I have reached a point in reading where I feel physically sick and simultaneously puzzled as to why, for what purpose have I been brought here ?
Reading reviews concerning the apparently pointless and gimmicky ending I feel vindicated for giving up.
