Still Alice

I wanted to read something based on a true story and I found this book, Still Alice. It’s about a woman who is suffering from Alzheimer, but she hasn’t got the age you expect her to have. She’s not old, suffering from dementia. She’s a teacher, working in Harvard. She still has years to go before hitting the age of an old woman. The beginning was hard to read for me, but once I got into it I couldn’t stop reading. This story really touched me and it was sad. It’s sad to know how someone with such a high IQ can just lose all her sense. It’s sad to know how she could just forget about who her children are. Yes there is a movie out there and yes it might make you cry. But a book is more personal, it’s more detailed and it’s something you should pick up and read to understand what is going on.
