Reading is my drug. I love to get lost in a great book to escape into worlds that are usually much cooler than mine! >.<

Still Alice

Still Alice - Lisa Genova Wow! Amazing! This was such a great and sad story. Very well written and thought provoking. This book really disturbed me like nothing I've ever read before. To think that something this awful happens to a person so healthy and full of life is the saddest thing. Quite the eye opener. I never realized how distressing this disease really is.Alice is only 50 when she's diagnosed with Alzheimer's. It's extremely sad to see what she goes through and how the disease takes over her life and mind. It has to be one of the worse diseases to have. It takes everything away from you and there is nothing you can do about it. It really leaves you helpless. The book and story itself is great. I had a very hard time putting it down. The writing is excellent. The loneliness and sorrow that Alice is feeling is really palpable. I loved it from start to finish.
