'Elizabeth is Missing' by Emma Healey:
I found this book fascinating. The author has done a lot of research about dementia and I could hardly believe it was a first book. Lots of detail about dementia sufferers and their carers. I found that the numerous time shifts was a bit confusing at times but then it reflected the jumble in Maud's mind so appropriate to be written in this style I suppose.
It was good to have the mystery of Sukey's disappearance woven into it. Therefore it wasn't just about Maud and her dementia which could have made it boring I suppose. I wanted to complete this book mainly to find out the answer to the reason why Elizabeth was missing and what happened to Sukey.
This was a quick read and I found myself skimming at times which is something I don't normally do. I may read further books by this author if the synopsis tempts me.
