Read full description of the books:
I guess you can see by my book list that there aren't many books that I just plain didn't like. This one got close. I started it in July and just got around to finishing it today, only because I wanted it out of my way. Unfinished books haunt me.
So anyway, I felt like Ellis was looking for some meaning in her own life instead of really taking a close look at the lives of the centenarians she interviewed. In other words, it was about her, not them, when I felt like the real story should have been with them. If she wants to write an autobiographical novel, she's welcome to do it. But not in a book she titled, "If I Live to Be 100: Lessons from the Centenarians." She even admitted that all her life she had been the one who had talked and talked and who wanted to be the center of attention and says she feels like she's gotten away from that in her interviews. But then she sticks in these little snippets of her life and reacts emotionally to things the interviewees say without being able to explain why. Sigh.
But some of the little snippets she got from them were quite interesting. They just could have been arranged better.
