Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Do you know what the biggest job hazard to being a writer is?  IMO, it is being addicted to reading.  Really, I read every single day – sometimes let everything else go if the story is good enough.

Today, I’m starting a new book – Still Alice by Lisa Genova.  Alice is a 50-year-old woman who unfortunately receives a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.

What makes this story so interesting to me is that Lisa Genova hold a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Harvard University and is an online columnist for the National Alzheimer’s Association.  I can hardly wait to read book!  Still Alice has been compared to A Beautiful Mind and Ordinary People – compelling and unforgettable.

If you read it, please drop me a note here and let me know what you think.

Now, time to read….
