It is rare when a book moves you to the core. This is one of those books. Lisa Genova does a great job of depicting Alice as a person instead of a disease. Grad a tissue and enjoy.

I truly never understood what actually happened to a person when they suffered from Alzheimers till I read this..

Sandford has another winner. This one features Virgil Flowers. Good story line and holds your attention. 8 of 10 for me.

Really enjoyed this book. My grandmother, also named Alice, suffered with Alzheimers. The author was able to give me wonderful insights into some of the things she was going through. Sad but satisfying

This was an awesome book. I have been afraid to read it for a while now as I have a deep seated fear of senility. Many times while reading it I identified with Alice, but feel slightly better when I talk about it with others my age who all say the same thing...........
