Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Still Alice

Never have I read a narrative so terrifying. It is poignant, thoughtful, and distressingly believable. Alzheimer’s Disease has always been scary—now it may be my greatest fear.

No. 2 on my challenge. I cannot wait to see this movie.

  1. I want to read this one, I really do. But I just lost my Dad to early-onset Alzheimer’s in December so not sure if I could actually get through it at this point. Hopefully one day, I’ve heard it’s a great book.

    1. The book is amazing. Absolutely stunning, but it’s a hard read. Alzheimer’s is a crippling disease for all those involved—I’m very sorry to hear about your father, my heart goes out to you—but Lisa Genova does an amazing job of allowing her character to maintain her dignity while the disease strips everything else from her. I definitely recommend it, but maybe give it a bit.

Don't be afraid. I won't smite you. Probably.
