Has anyone else read Still Alice by Lisa Genova? The minute I started reading this book, I could not put it down. The main character, Alice, is a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard with the world at her fingertips when she is given a devastating diagnosis. Recent memory lapses thought to be a symptom of menopause turn out to be an indicator of early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Completely riveting, the book follows Alice through the early stages of her disease and then its inevitable progression and the effect it has not only on her, but her family as well. Definitely a must read!
