Such a good story I really felt as if I have a better insight into what goes on in the mind of an Alzheimer patient and what the family goes through trying to figure out how to manage and deal with their loved one There were a couple of times I thought I knew how the story would end and have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the ending This is a story that will linger in my mind for a while.

  4.

  5. This book caused such an emotional reaction from me, that I had to blink back the tears on than one occasion It s not even that I felt sorry for Alice, I was impacted when it was playing out a scene when she wasn t aware of what was happening, who anyone was, etc The innocence of needing to be told things and reminded things over and over was heart wrenching.Such an amazing read

  6. Excellent Book about a woman with her PHD and who is a teacher in a prestigious college who develops Early Onset Alzheimers Book picks up the story a few months before she is diagnosed and follows her throughout her disease The only book I ve ever read that must describe what it is really like to have this disease Easy read Highly recommend it.

  11. I loved it, but hated it Pretty scary since my maternal grandmother had dementia, but what a glimpse into this amazing woman s mind That she was a Harvard professor and only 50 just goes to show how complex the mind is It is written with such honesty that you just can t help but laugh and cry along I imagine it would be helpful for anyone having to go through a family member having this disease.
