Still Alice by Lisa Genova

50 year old Alice has a great life; loving husband, 3 grown kids and a tenured job in the psychology department at Harvard. All of that starts coming down around her when she finds out that she has early onset Alzheimer’s disease which she inherited through a gene that is passed down from parents to their children.

I did not like this book at all. I had to force myself to finish it. Her children and husband were intolerable, and I was confused as to what was going on most of the time, but it may have been written that way so the reader knows what the disease feels like. Wish I wouldn't have bought it.

2 stars
