The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey is not a mystery or science fiction offering. Mosley tells the story of Ptolemy
Ptolemy, who knows his mind is going, agrees to take part in a controversial, non FDA approved medical trial for memory related illness. The treatment provided will increase his clarity and memory for a few weeks. In exchange, Ptolemy agrees to donate his body to science for further study. The "doctor" leading the study offers a monetary exchange but Ptolemy refuses, convinced that if money changes hands, he will be effectively selling his soul.
Ptolemy's last weeks are filled with memories, heartache, and joy. He strengthens his bonds with those he feels truly cares for him, and makes peace with his past. This was an easy read and full of wisdom about growing older and what's important in life.
