Book Review #41 (2015 Challenge), Still Alice

This review is for: Still Alice (read in October 2015)

This was under the category: A Book Based entirely on its cover.  (okay this was a bit of a stretch, but I wanted to read this book, so sue me)

Here is what Amazon had to say about the book:
Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. 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.

This book was amazing.  It was an easy read, and I couldn't put it down.  I finished it in just a few days because I was really enjoying it.  It is told from Alice's point of view, so you get to experience what she is going through as she loses more and more of her ability to know what is going on around her.

After I read the book, I watched the movie which I also enjoyed.  It followed the story pretty well (they changed some minor details).

I encourage you to read this book.

Stars: 4 1/2
