In Lisa Genova's extraordinary New York Times bestselling novel, an accomplished woman slowly loses her thoughts and memories to Alzheimer's disease— only to discover that each day brings a new way of living and loving. Soon to be a major motion picture starring Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth, and Kristen Stewart! Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children and a house on the Cape, is a celebrated Harvard professor at the height of her career when she notices a forgetfulness creeping into her life. As confusion starts to cloud her thinking and her memory begins to fail her, she receives a devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer's disease. Fiercely independent, Alice struggles to maintain her lifestyle and live in the moment, even as her sense of self is being stripped away. In turns heartbreaking, inspiring, and terrifying, Still Alice captures in remarkable detail what it's like to literally lose your mind... Reminiscent of A Beautiful Mind, Ordinary People, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, Still Alice packs a powerful emotional punch and marks the arrival of a strong new voice in fiction.

It is rare when a book moves you to the core. This is one of those books. Lisa Genova does a great job of depicting Alice as a person instead of a disease. Grad a tissue and enjoy.

Sandford has another winner. This one features Virgil Flowers. Good story line and holds your attention. 8 of 10 for me.

Really enjoyed this book. My grandmother, also named Alice, suffered with Alzheimers. The author was able to give me wonderful insights into some of the things she was going through. Sad but satisfying

This was an awesome book. I have been afraid to read it for a while now as I have a deep seated fear of senility. Many times while reading it I identified with Alice, but feel slightly better when I talk about it with others my age who all say the same thing...........
