it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction
Recommended for: Erin, Danica, Shera, Andie
Read from December 27 to 30, 2011

From early on in this novel when Alice, a distinguished professor working at an Ivy League college, forgets how to get home from a jog she has run a million times, Lisa Genova had me hooked. With increasing panic and helplessness, I sunk into Alice's story and "felt" her despair as early onset Alzheimers threaded its way into her life.

This story was wonderfully written and I highly recommend it. A favorite, for sure!
