It really wasn't fair of me to read this book so soon after reading Still Alice. I think that my rating would have been higher had I not read it so recently. It's especially frustrating because I always want to give Lisa Genova 5 stars. Her story of becoming a novelist is awesome and inspiring.

This was a well-written and interesting book about a condition called "Left Neglect" or Unilateral neglect. I felt that some of the characters were a little reused (the semi-unsupportive husband) from Still Alice, but I really liked some of the relationships. I liked the main character, Sarah, by the end of the book, but didn't relate to her at all in the beginning.

Easy, interesting read. I enjoyed it.
