The Best of Us: A Memoir | Joyce Maynard
Pickpick

It was a good glimpse of a love affair that happens late in life. The observations about love , marriage , aging and sickness were very detailed. I liked the author's perspective. It was sad but made me reflect and think about a lot about my own life. I recommend this book.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ a beautiful meditation on marriage. I loved the writing and the complete honesty and truth. Many, many good quotes but loved this one. "The future - even minutes from now-is an actuarial guess." ???

Continuing the trend I am on of reading a fiction book then memoir! Started this book today and already I know what I will be doing this weekend. So good.

⭐️⭐️⭐️This book was entertaining enough and was a quick read. It got a bit confusing between chapters for me. Overall, it was a nice escape. Kept me guessing.

Megabooks The more I reflected on this one the more I liked it. It went from so-so to pick on second read. 3y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Finished this book in two days! Memoirs about addiction are aplenty but this was so much more: family dynamics , an inside into the beauty magazine world and of course a look into life as an addict. A functioning addict. I'm amazed at all Cat has gotten through and glad that she has lived to tell her story. It took guts and perseverance to write this memoir!

Reviewsbylola Sounds very compelling! 3y
Michreads It really was compelling! It was hard to read in the beginning because she starts the book at a very young age. You end up rooting for her through it all. At least I did. 3y

I enjoyed reading this book and was sad when it ended. Andy is quirky and dished a lot of fun, interesting info! He's the real deal- not superficial at all. Loved his honesty and hearing about life in NYC as a known personality.

I liked this book. It took me awhile to get into it. I liked the alternating perspectives. I would say the last 1/3 of the book was excellent.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ a good solid read. Very open and honest. I liked reading about her family. She is a dedicated daughter to her Father. It was sweet to read. I liked the last half of the book better than the first. Oh and it broke the trend of no photos in memoirs! The photos were fun to see.

This book was really just so so for me. While I enjoyed the tree data. I had a hard time really caring for the author. There just wasn't enough in depth personal information for me to really care. When she would get personal it was just a glimpse and then on to something else. I don't want to go into a lot of detail because it can be a spoiler. Just wasn't enough there for me. The long descriptions about nothing drove me nuts.

It's hard to say that I enjoyed this book. It was extremely well written and researched. The structure was at first hard to get used to but after reading for a bit it started to flow nicely. Reading this book during this very sad time in our country made me even sadder. 😢

I finished this gem of a book last night. I loved the writing. The characters were very interesting but in a way I wished they had a bit more depth. Although thinking that maybe that was intentional. Overall a great read.

Fantastic book. Takes the reader on a great medical journey to discovery of a very little known disease. But one that probably has affected many people through the centuries. "Finally, he sat down in the bed near me. He turned to my parents and said, " her brain is on fire."

Bethanychaseauthor I've heard this is amazing! 3y
Michreads It was really good. Read part memoir and since she was a reporter part long form article. It gave a lot of detail about a very little known sickness. It was a quick read. 3y
