If I could give it a zero, I would.

I read this book expecting some kind of breakthrough in literature, but all I found was utter facile crap. This book took a subject close to my heart-- my son is disabled from birth and will forever be in a wheelchair-- and trotted out every easy stereotype under the sun. The author addresses certain aspects of disability but in a way that makes the pity pour out-- all while showing that disabled people don't want pity.

The character I found myself intrigued about was the only one who seemed to actually understand disability, thus the only one I cared about-- the professional carer. He seemed to really "get" it and understand the urgence of physical needs, the depth of emotional ones. The rest of the book, as it was woefully thin on REALITY, was a waste of my time.

Will, as the disabled former highflyer, was a travesty. I know many disabled people who are so sick of this argument that their lives are not worth living. We are living in a new age of eugenics, where a lot of people are starting to say out loud that people like Will shouldn't exist. Well, thanks, Jojo Moyes, for giving credence to that crap, and passing it off as Will's choice and Lou's sacrifice. How about, oh, I dunno, changing things so that places are accessible and disabled people aren't warehoused unseen?

I understand it's a work of fiction. But frankly the disabled community really doesn't need another well-intentioned but totally flawed dime novel to raise awareness. And great, now it's a FILM. Super. I imagine that like Les Intouchables, this will be a maudlin couple of hours during which people will feel good about themselves for having watched it, then go right on back to forgetting about the real challenges disabled people face. Wonderful.

I found the contents of this book potentially useful for my practice. But the editing is so awful, to the point that it is distracting to read and the price in my opinion is not justified.

It could have helped that I'd read a review and knew the basic device of the story and not to expect chronological order. The story sucked me into the various lives of the main character, some so short as to be but a few paragraphs, some long enough to make me think I would not be left yearning for more. Alas, I'm yearning, something that is rare in modern fiction.
