This book is about Alice who has early on set dementia. She's a professional, she gives lectures, she is highly regarded but her life is changing dramatically due to her diagnosis and she is struggling to cope. Her husband doesn't know how to treat her and seems to be burying his head in his work and all the while Alice is feeling more and more alone.
This is an amazing story which highlights the lack in facilities for younger people who have dementia. It is not just an old persons' disease and it's difficult to imagine what it must be like to have such a diagnosis so young.
I really liked that this book made me think about how this illness must affect everyone and how frightening it is. I highly recommend this book and would love to hear more from Lisa Genova in future.
