Deaf Sentence


Retired Professor of Linguistics Desmond Bates is going deaf. It's a bother for his wife who has an enviably successful new career and is too busy to be endlessly repeating herself. Roles are reversed with his aging father, who resents his son's attempts to help him. And then there's Alex, a student whom Desmond has agreed to help after a typical misunderstanding at a party. But her increasingly bizarre requests cannot all be blamed on his defective hearing. So much for growing old gracefully... Hide synopsis

in my opinion this was not a good read...some parts were really good but they were far and few in between...most of the book was boring and drawn out way too long...a lot of unnecessary story...i liked the idea and concept of the novel...and i did think of how crazy the characters situation was...but could have done without...peace

Great read!

Enjoyed it enough so that I ordered two more copies to give to a couple of hard-of-hearing friends.
