really liked it
Read from August 30 to September 01, 2011

I have had the experience of working with/knowing several people with early stage and early onset Alzheimer's in support groups and this book was really well done. But, I feel like I should only give it 3 stars because it's difficult to say I really liked it when I felt so incredibly sad throughout the entire book. However, it was so well done and was such an accurate account that I went with 4 stars. In addition, I think the 4 stars is warranted because of the emotion it evoked the entire time. It was heartwrenching & scary. I would recommend this book to others to get a glimpse of this horrendous disease, but I would issue a caution to readers that because it was so accurate it may also be very difficult to get through.
