But now that I have read Every Note Played,
I think I would like to read Still Alice as well.
I was a little prepared for this book,
totally not prepared for this book.
I mean, I knew what it was about
but, I really wasn’t that familiar with ALS
and what it does to a person.
What a heartbreaking, terrifying disease.
And she writes about it in a way
that makes you really understand
the scope of its entirety,
of its paralyzing progression…
I felt constricted and panicky just reading about it,
I cannot imagine what
it must be like to be living with it
or watching a loved one deal with it.
That said, it was a beautifully written book
and well worth the read….
just, keep some kleenex handy.
