Reader Review: “In Love”
Books reviews of “In Love: A Memoir of Love and Loss” by Amy Bloom reveal a story of a couple who, when the husband develops Alzheimer’s Disease, seek physician-assisted suicide to end his suffering. This difficult topic evokes strong emotions in many people, however Bloom’s writing activates empathy and provides a glimpse into the human experience of grief. Bloom’s writing also provides insight into the reality of Alzheimer’s Disease, and how it affects those who care for sufferers. The book is an honest account of the emotional trauma that comes with such a difficult decision, and readers may find themselves with a renewed appreciation for life.
