A very compelling and moving story told from the point of view of a highly intelligent woman's journey into early-onset Alzheimer's dementia. Two moments of the story stood out for me (spoiler alert). Firstly, the tragedy of her not being able to commit suicide as she had planned to do, and secondly, the (rather unlikely) scenario of an Alzheimer's sufferer giving a conference speech highlighting the plight of victims who are in the process of losing their identity and who lack a public voice. Lisa Genova is also particularly convincing on the impact of the disease on partners, children, colleagues, and their differing reactions to it. Nearly everyone will, at some point in their lives, either have to deal with, or know someone who is dealing with, a similar situation: highly recommended.
