Book to Basics #23 Still Alice by Lisa Genova
|Fear not what you don't know but the knowledge you''d forget.|
I think nothing is scarier to face than a slow death--not simply physically but also one that strikes the emotional and mental well-being of a person. For those who know people who had or is suffering Alzheimer's, Still Alice is a welcoming and a comforting novel--appealing somehow as a memoirs--that can help you understand what it really is like to be in the mind of a person, well, losing her thoughts a neuron at a time. Lisa Genova's Still Alice is sad yet thought provoking. I really admire how she narrated such story with unquestinable grace.
My eyes welled-up when Alice made a speech in one of those conferences not as the esteemed professor but as a patient, voicing out what needs to be heard before her ideas and thoughts are long-forgotten.
Imagine your life, fading away... what will you hold on to the hardest?
