"Things To Do In A Retirement Home Trailer Park" captures the pathos of caring for an estranged family member in their final moments nearly perfectly, with fully rounded characters and enough humour and insight to make the book a heartening and often funny experience. The book manages to capture both the drudgery and the exhausting nature of life in a hospice without being overindulgent or obnoxiously preachy. I was completely drawn in, loved the characters, and really enjoyed the art style with its distinctive 3 colour palate. My only complaint is a couple of abstract sequences which I felt were stretched a bit too thin, but otherwise I highly recommend it. Check it out! You'll have a lot of fun with this horribly dying old man who can't breathe.
