Still Alice review á eBook or Kindle ePUB ì Still Alice is a compelling debut novel about a 50 year old woman's sudden descent into early onset Alzheimer's disease written by first time author Lisa Genova who holds a Ph D in neuroscience from Harvard University Alice Howland happily married with three grown children and a house on the CapeDisease Fiercely independent Alice struggles to maintain her lifestyle and live in the moment even as her sense of self is being stripped away In turns heartbreaking inspiring and terrifying Still Alice captures in remarkable detail what's it's like to literally lose your mi. Alice Howland is a well respected Harvard linguistics professor who at age 50 finds herself starting to lose her mind forgetting words not recalling why she walked into a room unsure of the recipe for a dessert she’s made for several years Through a series of doctor appointments and tests Alice learns that she has early onset Alzheimer’s disease In Still Alice she attempts to cope with this new life along with her family which includes her husband her two grown daughters son and son in law It is tough for all of them to accept and challenging to cope with as the disease progresses over time Still Alice was terrifying I can’t imagine learning this was happening to me or to a loved one It’s hard to process at any age but seems especially shocking for a brilliant woman who’s just 50 years old The story felt realistic from Alice’s behavior to her family’s differing opinions about the best course of action for her yet I also enjoyed how they ultimately came together despite their disagreements

review Å eBook or Kindle ePUB Ø Lisa Genova

D a house on the Cape is a celebrated Harvard professor at the height of her career when she notices a forgetfulness creeping into her life As confusion starts to cloud her thinking and her memory begins to fail her she receives a devastating diagnosis early onset Alzheimer's. Update I just watched the film It was very moving an awful depiction of a terrible disease I forget words I worry that maybe I don't even want to think of it Good as the film was it wasn't as good as the book It could stand alone though as a separate work that just shared names and a title June 2015Still Alice reads like a memoir of Alzheimer's disease written by a family member but is in fact the first novel by a neuroscientist who apart from being a great deal younger lives the successful life of a top academic as does AliceThe book is unputdownable I read through the night; dawn came and went and still I couldn't put it down but I don't really know why The writing was ok a bit heavy handed at times the denoument was predetermined and inevitable but still the book was as gripping as any top ten thriller Perhaps it was the progress through a disease that strikes at random and about which we know almost nothing from the sufferer's point of viewLisa Genova self published the book and it has reached the rank of 150 in 'books' on When I see a self published book with 10 or 15 glowing reviews mostly written by people who've never written a review before I think they are probably the author's friends and dismiss the review in favour of one by an independent publication if there is one But when a self published book attracts 190 reviews and a 5 star rating I know that the book is definitely worth considering not just for my own reading pleasure but also to order for my bookshop This book is than worthy of consideration its ourselves our families as we might be and its a good read too
