I’m on a roll again, I just finished reading “The Descendants” by Kaui Hart Hemmings. I had seen a trailer for the movie and decided to read the book as the premise seemed interesting. After just reading “Girlfriend in a Coma” it was slightly similar subject matter, but then again it is not really a book about someone in a coma, it is about a family struggling to find their own way.
I may be getting ahead of myself, for those who are not familiar, “The Descendants” is the story of the King family. We meet them as the mother, Joanie is in hospital after falling into a coma resulting from a boating accident. At first things seem optimistic, but eventually they do have to say goodbye and we follow the family through this journey, as they tell their friends and family and deal with other issues that have come to light as well.
