Still Alice / Left Neglected

Still Alice / Left Neglected I really like that this book was told by the perspective from Alice who had early onset Alzheimer s It gave such a personal voice to this story Her struggles with losing her memory and how she and her family dealt with such a sad disease were written very eloquently I very much liked this book Note, I read Still Alice recently so I rated that book I believe I ve read Left Neglected but it s been years ago and I don t really remember it so I m not rating it Excellent Book about a woman with her PHD and who is a teacher in a prestigious college who develops Early Onset Alzheimers Book picks up the story a few months before she is diagnosed and follows her throughout her disease The only book I ve ever read that must describe what it is really like to have this disease Easy read Highly recommend it. Enjoy The Best Of Lisa Genova S Powerful, Poignant Storytelling With This Set Of Her Two New York Times Bestselling Novels, Still Alice And Left Neglected STILL ALICE An Accomplished Professor Diagnosed With Alzheimer S Disease Learns That She Is Than What She Can Remember Now A Major Motion Picture From Sony Pictures Classics LEFT NEGLECTED A Busy Multitasking Mother In Her Thirties Learns To Pay Attention To What Matters Most In Life After A Car Crash Leaves Her With A Traumatic Brain Injury And A Bizarre Neurological Condition Called Left Neglect This book caused such an emotional reaction from me, that I had to blink back the tears on than one occasion It s not even that I felt sorry for Alice, I was impacted when it was playing out a scene when she wasn t aware of what was happening, who anyone was, etc The innocence of needing to be told things and reminded things over and over was heart wrenching.Such an amazing read Both books were amazing You really have to stop and refocus our lives Couldn t put them down When I read a book I m so absorbed in it, that I can t put it down I liked this book very much and look forward to seeing Julianne Moore play the role of Alice in the current movie Some of the symptoms she was having came a little too close to home and made me think about my own mental accuities Overall, I found the book informative, well written and interesting character development. Still Alice and Left neglecte are fabulous books Still Alice and Left Neglected are wonderful, insightful and important books Must reads STILL ALICE 4.5 starsSo I absolutely loved Still Alice The perspective the main character is haunting and beautiful The story of a strong, independent,and intelligent professor losing the one thing she loves about herself the most her mind Reading about this wonderful woman losing herself to the disease Alzheimer s was heart breaking to me I lost my grandfather the the same disease, so I may be biased in my review The relationship between John and Alice will make you laugh and cry in Alice s fight for dignity There is heartbreak as there is little hope for Alice due to the degenerative nature of her disease You ll still find yourself rooting for her A book I would recommend to all, even with such a serious and heart breaking topic LEFT NEGLECTED 3 starsSimilar to Still Alice, Left Neglected once again dives into the realm of neurological disorders One again, the main character is a strong successful woman Before the accident, Sarah, the main character, is a annoyingly superficial over achiever After the accident, you ll sympathize with her neurological disorder While there is little to no hope at the end of Still Alice, I found this book the opposite Because Sarah does not have a degenerative disorder, there is hope that her condition will improve What I found the most interesting was society s treatment of her post accident While I did prefer Still Alice to Left Neglected, both in the subject matter and the main characters they were both great reads I love when you learn something from a book Lisa Genova, who studied Neuroscience, and holds a PHD will give you a pretty detailed inside look A doctor that can write That s pretty cool Her view on what happens to those with these neurological disorders, allows an inside look. Such a good story I really felt as if I have a better insight into what goes on in the mind of an Alzheimer patient and what the family goes through trying to figure out how to manage and deal with their loved one There were a couple of times I thought I knew how the story would end and have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the ending This is a story that will linger in my mind for a while.
