Lisa Genova’s Still Alice is an unsurprising best selling novel and now an Oscar winning film.
The eponymous Alice is a successful academic and professor is shockingly diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s causing her and her family’s lives to turn upside down.
Genova has written a compelling and brilliant story following Alice’s steady decline. She is remarkable in her telling of Alice’s thoughts, actions and emotions as the awful disease gradually reduces her protagonists ability to live her life. From the small to the significant, each incident is raw and real resulting in actual 😭 for the majority of the second half!
Juliane Moore rightfully won an Oscar for her performance as Alice but as ever, the book is superior and so must be read first! ❤️📚
