Still Alice written and narrated by Lisa Genova

Still Alice - Lisa Genova, Lisa Genova

This was a sad story. It wasn't particularly well written but it was hard hitting, despite shying away from the possible ending which was alluded to several times during the narrative. 

 

I wasn't fond of the author's narration at first, but it did grow on me.

 

Surprisingly, despite the degradation of Alice's mind and memory, there were some good things that came out of her Alzheimer's disease. I think that's one of the components that made this seem more like a non fiction story at times. This book appeared to take a realistic view of the woman, her family and this awful disease.

 

It was sad and I cried. What else is there to say?
