This is the book to read. No, I’m not related to this author. I don’t know her but I did just order her second book. (Apparently she is writing her third book.)
Still Alice is about a 50 year old woman with early–onset Alzheimer’s disease. Alice is a brilliant woman and a respected Harvard professor. Not only do you follow Alice’s journey with the progression of her disease but you also follow her family’s journey. I found the reactions of Alice’s family both disturbing and comforting.
Really, with so many people around us finding themselves in the situation of having Alzheimer’s disease or having a loved one with the disease, this book will touch you.
