About halfway into this book I was really enjoying it, but my enthusiasm waned as I got closer to the end. I wish I could put my finger on what exactly left me cold. I guess it became too repetitive. I also found myself not buying the rapid pace of Alice's deterioraton. It seems like the author researched the subject very well, but I have to think it the diseases pace was sped up to fit in the nice neat package of how she wished to frame the book.
