Turn The Page Tuesday/ Still Alice


Still Alice by Lisa Genova is an amazing book. Everyone should read this incredible novel to gain insight to Alzheimer's disease.

 In this novel Alice a very intelligent lady is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's. As this debilitating disease progresses we go through the changes with Alice from becoming lost in her own neighborhood, to the end stages of Alzheimer's.

 Reading this book makes you feel as if you are right there with Alice and her family facing all the challenges that occur with this brain altering disease.

 I couldn't put this book down or stop thinking about it as I went through my day.

Oh! I have this book hanging around on my to-be-read shelf. Glad to hear it's a good one. I think I'll move it up and read it sooner than I was going to.

I have this book... given to me by a friend when another friend's mom was suffering from Alzheimers. I havent' read it yet and my sister snatched it out of my "to read" pile last weekend, so it will be a while longer before I get to it!
