'Deep State' is definitely for those conspiracy theorists of you out there. Fans of X-Files might see similarities in the agents and even Doctor Who fans will be reminded of the Vashta Nerada. Its fast paced storyline flows like a sci-fi pilot episode, urging readers to tune in next week.
Each platform has a dynamic volunteer community that supports and advocates for its status as the “best” platform online and, in some cities, in real life, resources abound.

If you are someone who enjoys a challenge, who likes that shared sense of adventure, who enjoys meeting fellow travelers, who enjoys being inspired by others, and who wants a more intimate knowledge of the place you are visiting, I would suggest that a group holiday may just be for you.
The novel is such a clever study of dementia -- the ebbs and flows of the illness itself. The progression from a woman who is mobile, continent and conversant -- even if in an erratic way -- to a woman who needs full time care; the periods of calm and stability to the swift progression of falls, incontinence, and full time care. All of this is dealt with sensitively but without being overly sentimental.
Daisy’s inner monologues are hilarious. Her commentary is spot-on for a kid that age (I can only assume!) and the plot development was quick and easy to follow.
