Wow. I know I’m probably last to the party here, but I just flipped the last page of Still Alice and don’t even know what to do next.
This book was both amazing and horrifying at the same time, and as a reader, I felt like I was right there going through early-onset Alzheimer’s with Alice. It was so real and vivid, that at some points I had to just set the book down and take a deep breath.
I highly recommend everyone read this book.
Whether someone you love is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease or not, this book will open your eyes to a whole different world and at the end, you will feel changed. Or at least I felt changed.
I found this book in the seat pocket of the plane last week as I was flying home from Louisiana and it was like it was just meant to be there for me. When I finished it, I gave it to my friend and yoga teacher to read so it could keep being passed on. I recommend you guys do the same! Read the book yourself then pass it on to a friend or loved one. This book deserves to be read by everyone.
I can’t wait to read Lisa Genova’s next book because if it’s anything like her first, I know it will be amazing.
What are you guys reading right now?
