109: Still Alice

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

This book is absolutely, stunningly beautiful! A friend read this on vacation in just a few days and said “please read this so we can talk about it!” I’m so glad I took her copy home since it isn’t due for a few weeks.

It’s the story of a woman who finds out at 50 that she has early-on-set Alzheimer’s. The story is from her narrative perspective as she begins losing her cognitive function. I found myself tearing up over and over again. Years ago I read Karen Kingsbury’s depiction of a caregiver at a home for patients with Alzheimer’s, but aside from that I haven’t read many stories with this topic.

Go out right now and put this book on hold or purchase it from amazon because it’s that amazing!!

Still Alice by Lisa Genova earns every last star: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
