I just finished reading this for my book club and I read it in 3 days, which is saying a lot nowadays. Usually can't read for longer than 10 minutes without getting tired and falling asleep. But this book was so gripping and had me so involved.
It is about a woman with early onset Alzheimer's and told from her perspective. I didn't know much about this disease, but I have a new appreciation for those who have to go through this trial in their lives and their caregivers as well. The woman is a Harvard professor and very successful and important. Once the disease worsens, she becomes less lucid and the struggles she goes through are heartbreaking. I was crying in some parts and just distraught for those who have had to go through it. It is an easy read but not because it is a simple topic. The author writes with such ease that it makes you feel like you know Alice and her family. The characters are real and I found myself hoping that I would be understanding of someone in this situation. And also hope that I would never get it.
It is a must read and so educational and informative. I think you will really enjoy it!
