With time running short, these intrepid residents of Sunset Village in Florida continue to thirst for life and love.
The Sunset Gang is as lively, fun, and courageous a group as you'll find anywhere this side of the Last Reward. The fact that you'll find them at Sunset Village, a condominium retirement community in Florida - where an ambulance siren is the theme song and cycling at a stately pace is strenuous exercise - does not mean that they are ready to pack it all in. Not by a long shot.
Indeed, sex and romantic love keep Sunset Village bubbling with activity. If you were to walk down one of its well-tended paths, you might spot Jenny and Bill sitting on a bench, acting like young lovers, and never suspect that they are married - to other people! And at the pool, Max Bernstein, with an expertise that comes from five decades of skirt chasing, is singling out attractive widows.
But the true beating heart of Sunset Village is the love of family and friends. Widowed Molly Berkowitz learns that although her son and daughter may be failures in the eyes of the world, they are well worth bragging about, and Isaac Kramer begins to feel truly at home when the gray-haired boys down at the Laundromat start calling him by his old neighborhood nickname, "Itch".
In America, where "old" is a dirty word, people over 65 are often shut out as if growing old were some kind of contagious disease. But you cannot shut the Sunset Gang out of your heart. If you let them in, they will teach you a lot about living-a subject on which, after all, they are the experts.

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a funny and entertaining set of stories of life in a retirement home filled with people who are basically determined to live the best life they can before they die. I didn't think I was going to enjoy them when I first started listening but as each story progressed I became involved in the escapades of this lively bunch of seniors. A feel-good funny set of stories. The narrator was good for the stories.
