Where does And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I can't rank it, because it didn't feel like an audiobook. It felt like a spirit and a prayer and a heartache. Depending on where you are in your life it will either be perfect, poignant, or possibly fearful as you think about the loss of a loved one.
What was one of the most memorable moments of And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer?
It was so brief they are all memorable. Equally powerful when the grandfather recounts how much he misses his wife, as well as when Noah is the one supporting his grandfather.
Which character – as performed by David Morse – was your favorite?
The narrator was perfect. I suppose the grandson Noah was my favorite, but it was because he embodied the spirit of his grandfather.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The road home
Any additional comments?
It will be an hour of your life you that you will likely always remember. Highly recommend.

This seems to me to be Backman's driving idea, and it infuses all his books with warmth. He always delivers the particular joy of finally understanding a conundrum.
More than all the many articles I've sought answers from, this short tale helped me grasp what dementia is and how I might respond to it in others, and eventually, perhaps. myself.
