What made the experience of listening to All Gone the most enjoyable?
This book hit a very personal note for me. My mother suffered from dementia. She passed away this year and this book was actually comforting. I could really relate to the relationship the author had with her mother and thought the book was very well written and not overly sentimental.
What did you like best about this story?
The relationship between mother and daughter.
What about Alex Witchel’s performance did you like?
It felt her performance was very genuine and engaging.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Cherish the love of the people who mean the most to you.

It seems that lately a crop of women of a certain age are now writing memoirs. They're all famously successful in one sort of publishing gig or another, or they're celebrities, or gofers for celebrities, whatever. They claim to be workaholics but yet they all seem to have light years of free time to cook. Which includes shopping for the ingredients, bringing them home, putting them away until needed, even shopping for cookbooks. I simultaneously envy and hate these women...how do they work a 10-hour day and then put together a 5-course meal for someone who just dropped in??!!!
I've never looked to food and cooking for solace, probably why I can't relate, but this book is really 5 hours of "refreshments" with some dementia thrown in. And there are way too many recipes. I hated that the last part of every chapter, usually about 5-10 minutes or so, was wasted on recipes. Please, Audible, don't waste any more of my time and money with recipes!!! At least these culinary diversions were consistently placed so I could fast-forward to the next chapter.
This book gets one star for "story" because it includes the secret ingredient for meat loaf.
