Left Neglected, if anything, even more telling than Still Alice. Being something that could happen to any of us makes it more compelling.
Also, in discussing it with friends, I found out that two of them had spouses who are affected. on by an accident, and the other by a stroke at 43!
Lisa Genova is a terrific story-teller, and I am looking forward to her next book.

STILL ALICE - 4.5 stars
So I absolutely loved Still Alice. The perspective the main character is haunting and beautiful. The story of a strong, independent,and intelligent professor losing the one thing she loves about herself the most - her mind.

Reading about this wonderful woman losing herself to the disease Alzheimer's was heart-breaking to me. I lost my grandfather the the same disease, so I may be biased in my review.

The relationship between John and Alice will make you laugh and cry in Al
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.
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.

A very well written novel. Extremely relative to everyday life, and life changing experiences. The author, Ms. Lisa Genova, enunciates truth and understanding. After i stumbled on 'Still Alice' which is wonderful as well, I knew that She is more than gifted. Her words are well structured. After i read her narratives I'm motivated. This gorgeous Arthur writes beautifully, and has exceptional and motivating sentence structure, and perfect bone structure to match. Her novel's are very meaningful an
Both books were amazing! You really have to stop and refocus our lives!
Couldn't put them down! When I read a book I'm so absorbed in it, that I can't put it down!

Still Alice and Left neglecte are fabulous books!!
This book caused such an emotional reaction from me, that I had to blink back the tears on more than one occasion. It's not even that I felt "sorry" for Alice, I was more 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!
Both books are insightful and wonderful! So very well written!

Really enjoyed this book and it connected with my own feelings as a disabled person - people perceive you as being disabled but you don't feel it. Lisa Genova is an extraordinary writer with so much insight into how the brain adapts to the person' capabilities. He ending was a bit too tidy but believable
Louise Melanson
Loved the book. Although Was convinced I had Alzheimer's afterwards. Interesting seeing it from the other side, since I work with Alzheimer's patients. And believe me they are getting younger!!!!
Still Alice was haunting! This was a little of the same, but different situation.. a little redundant after reading Still Alice
Author is extremely well versed on the subject matter!
Both books are enlightening....written from the perspective of women with the illnesses (Alzhrimers in Still Alice, a traumatic brain injury in Left Neglect). Amazing writing.
Angie Schwartz
Still Alice was phenomenal, but Left Neglected was just so-so. Probably might be because I work in a field with many "Still Alice" people, so it hits home.
Donna Brown
Very unique perspectives on two types of disabilities! Quite an Indepth character study in each book! Learned a great deal about resources as well!
Erin Mccullogh
Great story. Kept me so engaged and I truly relate to what happened in this story. Sad but brilliantly written
Another book club pick - I am way behind in my reviews! We read Still Alice too. I recommend them both.
LOve this book. Helped me understand those in my life that have had memory issues.
Suzanne Bailey

Katherine Carr
This was a quick read. It makes me think twice about things I take for granted.
I just finished Still Alice..It was scary and insightful. I highly recommend the book.
I loved this book! A fabulous character that I was compelled to feel for.
