"Still Alice" is an absolutely fantastic book. I din't want to put it down. You feel so bad for Alice and her family. It really brings home how devastating a disease Alzheimers can be, but also shows that life can go on. Genova combines the appropriate amount of humour, frustration, shock, and sorrow in "Still Alice" to keep the reader's attention and empathy. Although a fictionalized account, Genova utilizes her knowledge of current Alzheimer's medications and treatment options to provide a platform of learning while enjoying the novel. This book is a necessary read for anyone; not just someone who has experienced Alzheimer through a family member or friend. I strongly recommend it, but remember to keep some tissues handy!
