Thanks for this thoughtful review. As someone who watched my grandfather (in his 80s) and an uncle (in his early 60s) live through this disease, I love the author's perspective. My relatives were still very much themselves, even as their memories and ability to function slipped away.

Lisa- Domestic Accident

This is one of my favorite books of the year. I think I especially loved it because I'm a speech pathologist who specializes in dementia patients. It was very accurate, and while I certainly was disappointed that the husband stopped caring for her, I unfortunately think it's common- especially for those afflicted earlier in life. Her new book Left Neglected was good, but not as good as Still Alice. I'm looking forward to reading more of her works.

Hey Erin,
Just getting around to catching up on some blogs. Your review of Still Alice is great. I hope somebody decides to pick it up based on your recommendation. I still think about the book quite often. Glad you got a chance to read it, hope you didn't have to stay up too late to finish it ;)
