At once beautiful and terrifying, Still Alice is a moving and vivid depiction of life with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease that is as compelling as A Beautiful Mind and as unforgettable as Judith Guest's Ordinary People.
- Wow! I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. I thought for sure I wasn't going to like it, but I ended up liking it a lot.
- I loved that this was written from Alice's perspective. I was completely immersed in her story and struggles.
- There were a few F-bombs that I didn't appreciate, but I think that was the only issue I had with the book.
- No one close to me has experienced Alzheimer's disease, so I haven't thought about it much. I knew it was a horrible disease and what it did to people, but this book brought a lot of emotion and reality to the disease for me. It helped me understand how awful going through something like this can really be, and I love that about reading and books.
- When I get immersed in a book, I think about it when I'm not reading, and it finds ways to effect my normal life. I panicked when I forgot something, and I started noticing how much I rely on my planner, Google calendar, and my phone. I started worrying about forgetting my daughter's names, and what will happen to me when I get older. I want to cling on to little moments more.
- The writing was great! I didn't feel like I was reading at all. I was just absorbed into the story.
- The copy I read had the movie cover, and I hate movie covers! Why do they even make these? Who buys them?
- Great book! I'd recommend it to anyone. I'm really glad my book club chose this.
