    Still Alice (New) After you read this you will never look at Alzheimer's the same again Nor will you ever forget it Oh the ironyI'd always correlated Alzheimer's disease with old age and heard the best way to combat it was to exercise your brain I do my fair share of reading can solve a Sudoku puzzle faster than 98% of the population and I shun mindless chick flicks for your intelligent thrillers but I'll never be as brilliant as Alice a 50 year ol

    Still Alice (New) No one understands the high stakes associated with making a book recommendation like a serious reader especially when it's to a good friend co worker or family member Books that we love say a lot about our personalities things that we're passionate about and even shed light on our past experiences good and bad That's a lot to share with someone Along with that pressure is the fear of introducing the wrong boo

Review Still Alice

Still Alice Free download ã 2 From New York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova comes the definitive and illuminating novel about Alzheimer’s disease Now a major motion picture starring Oscar winner Julianne Moore Look for Lisa Genova's latest novel Inside the O’BriensAlice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to bu. Is my identity something that transcends neurons proteins and defective molecules of DNA Is my soul and spirit immune to the ravages of Alzheimer s I believe it is I read this book for three reasons 1 I have never read a book about Alzheimer s disease 2 For personal reasons I have an interest in Alzheimer s and 3 It has an incredibly high average rating on goodreads That being said I have to confess that I didn t really go into this expecting to like it I picked it up from the library so I wouldn t have to spend money on it and so I could return it uickly when I realised it was nothing than the regular Nicholas Sparks style melodramatic chick lit I started it with a bored sigh thinking I would soon be putting it aside to distract myself with the internet or any of the million TV shows I m currently trying to keep up with But something unexpected happenedThis is not chick lit whatever you want to interpret that to mean It isn t melodramatic or emotionally manipulative It isn t the Alzheimer s euivalent of the standard forgive me cancer book Instead this is a deeply moving psychological portrait of a woman s deteriorating mind and how this gradually affects her relationships with the people around her It s about an intelligent woman suddenly finding that she can no longer rely on her mind she tries every day to hold onto her memories her sense of understanding and we are taken on a terrifying journey into what it must be like to know you are slowly losing pieces of yourself day by day I have no desire to trivialize cancer or any other disease I have lost several people I ve loved to cancer and know how horrible it is But Alzheimer s is a whole different type of monster There s one part of the book where Alice says she wishes she could swap her disease for cancer and then instantly feels bad about it but I understand where the feelings come from With cancer you can fight There s chemotherapy radiotherapy and yes they don t always work but you can go down fighting With Alzheimer s there s still no way to fight it no chance of overcoming the disease The diagnosis carries a tragic hopelessness with it because all you can do is sit around and wait for your mind to deteriorate Sometimes you can really tell when an author knows their subject and in my opinion it makes all the difference I recall Split by Swati Avasthi in particular and the way the author s background working with abuse victims helped her have a deeper understanding of the characters she was dealing with and the story she was telling Genova holds a Harvard PHD in Neuroscience and there is a surety and confidence in her scientific explanations of the disease that makes this fact evident in her writing She knows the small details of what she s talking about and so the bigger picture is naturally convincingOn a personal note there is a history of Alzheimer s in my family I don t understand it enough to know whether it s genetic or a coincidence that many of the women on my mother s side have suffered from the disease I do know my mum is afraid of it though she doesn t talk about it often But every time she forgets where she put something she was holding just minutes ago every time she reaches for a word a word she uses every day and it slips away just out of her grasp every single time she wonders if it s a sign of something serious than getting older and having a busy schedule It s this small scale stuff that makes the novel so terrifying We could all be Alice We all forget small things every day that s just a fact and it happens to everyone but what if one day those forgotten memories don t come back straight away And the next time what if they go a bit longer The progression from the small things to the serious stages of the disease is truly scaryThis book is frightening on both a biologial and psychological level When I think of Alzheimer s I think of forgotten memories of faces you can t put a name to of everyday places that seem unfamiliar But the author s haunting descriptions of the biological truth are entirely different and frightening on a whole new level I don t think about what is really happening in the brain neurons being destroyed bit by bit dying some every day eroding pieces of who you are Memories for me are those things that disappear for a while but come back to you later But Alzheimer s doesn t make you forget memories it goes in and completely destroys them As if they were never thereAnd that is the important uestion for Alice how much can she lose and still be herself If our entire personalities are built from memories sensory experiences from the things we ve said and done who are we when we no longer remember any of that How can you make today matter when tomorrow you won t even remember it It s a sad book but it doesn t fail to leave you with a glimpse of light in the darkness too But I ll leave you to find out what that is for yourselfThe final comment I d like to make is not so much a criticism of the book but a comment on what I d personally like to see on this subject in the future As I said at the beginning I ve never read a book about Alzheimer s before and I may be missing a very good one that already exists but I kept thinking while reading this that I d like to read a story about someone who wasn t as successful as Alice Alice gains comfort from the fact that she has had a fantastic career a husband who loves her and three intelligent children She s obviously right to cling to all the good things in her life but I wonder how the story would be different if told about a man or woman without Alice s financial prosperity There has to be so many different stories and experiences to be told about this disease and I suddenly find myself wanting to read of themBlog

Still Alice Free download ã 2 Ild At fifty years old she’s a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a world renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown children When she becomes increasingly disoriented and forgetful a tragic diagnosis changes her life and her relationship with her family and the world forever As. Update I just watched the film It was very moving an awful depiction of a terrible disease I forget words I worry that maybe I don t even want to think of it Good as the film was it wasn t as good as the book It could stand alone though as a separate work that just shared names and a title June 2015Still Alice reads like a memoir of Alzheimer s disease written by a family member but is in fact the first novel by a neuroscientist who apart from being a great deal younger lives the successful life of a top academic as does AliceThe book is unputdownable I read through the night dawn came and went and still I couldn t put it down but I don t really know why The writing was ok a bit heavy handed at times the denoument was predetermined and inevitable but still the book was as gripping as any top ten thriller Perhaps it was the progress through a disease that strikes at random and about which we know almost nothing from the sufferer s point of viewLisa Genova self published the book and it has reached the rank of 150 in books on When I see a self published book with 10 or 15 glowing reviews mostly written by people who ve never written a review before I think they are probably the author s friends and dismiss the review in favour of one by an independent publication if there is one But when a self published book attracts 190 reviews and a 5 star rating I know that the book is definitely worth considering not just for my own reading pleasure but also to order for my bookshop This book is than worthy of consideration its ourselves our families as we might be and its a good read too
