This Just In! Still Alice, Lisa Genova

Still Alice, by Lisa GenovaWhy This? This is one of those books where the cover got me.  I kept seeing it in Barnes & Noble and I would be drawn to the pretty, and pick it up and visit with it, and then wander off to buy something else.  Had absolutely no idea what it was about.  I finally gave in to temptation. As I often do with new books, I read the first few pages to see how I liked the writing and the style (only after I bought it for the cover!) and I had to make myself put it down.  I am really looking forward to getting into this one.

What’s It About? Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build.  At fifty years old, she’s a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard  and a world-renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown children.  When she becomes increasingly disoriented and forgetful, a tragic diagnosis changes her life- and her relationship with her family and the world- forever.

Sounds good doesn’t it?

  1. I checked this book out weeks ago and haven’t read it yet. The bad thing is that I had to return it yesterday unread. I can’t wait to read your thoughts on it.
