Silence Alice by Lisa Genova

On my birthdays, while I still have enough murmurs, please tell me how well the writer Alice's progressive dissolution with Alzheimer's has demonstrated. When Alice tried to make memories and memos for herself, and I guess I would do the same, but if you lost your mind, you can't even recognize this individual or you can' t even believe your former self, so maybe it's no use.

On my birthdays, while I still have enough murmurs to estimate how well the writer Alice's progressive dissolution with Alzheimer's has commented. When Alice tried to make memories and memos for herself, and I guess I would do the same, but if you lost your mind, you can't even recognize this individual or you can' t even believe your former self, so maybe it's no use.

A Harvard lecturer in the field of psychognitive science, Alice Howland is only 50 years old and in a great starting from Alzheimer. The book certainly discusses her symptom, diagnoses, tests and responses, but what's more, it gives us an impression of how a particular familiy handles them.

To Alice's great consternation, she has retired from college and is studying theatre and theatre, with the support of Dad. She' s visiting an Alzheimer's ward herself to see how the people are. Meanwhile, her tests show that she has come into a genetic makeup for Alzheimer's, and odds are well her kids have it and any grandkids who might also have it.

When Lydia, her actor's daugther, is urged to go back to school, Alice begins to remember her student days: "This book is subdivided into parts by date, and each part has a place where she asks herself the same five quizzes to which she knew the answer when she was diagnosing (office adress, daughter's birth date, etc.), and we see that her answering is getting vaguer.

GĂ©nova did a great task to tell a very realistic tale, and my issue contains a talk with her discussing how her grandma with Alzheimer's disappears (not at an early stage). It understands what it means to say something that happens a few inches to the lefthand side of the memory in Alice's mind.

I' m also remembered the 1985 movie with Joanne Woodward, "Do You Remember Love", about a British teacher undergoing a similar diagnose. https://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/Do_You_..... I' ve never seen Julianne Moore as Alice, but she won an Oscar for it, and I have no doubts that I'll like it when it comes back on track.

Beautiful book.
