A Harvard professor is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease at age 50. This is worth reading.
The most powerful, emotional, disturbing yet amazing book I have ever read. If I had to recommend ONE book (and I've read thousands), this is the one.
Can't wait for her next book to come out in September called LOVE ANTHONY about autism. Worth reading STILL ALICE and LEFT NEGLECTED.
This is an amazing book. The author makes you feel like you are sharing her pain. It's sad but it's a really great book.
The selection for this month's book club meeting. Early onset Alzheimer's. Very scary~ready to open it up and get to reading.
Amazing book about Alzheimer's. Great first read for our book club!

The next moment, she is in a coma yet somehow able to see that her family is dead and that she is in the hospital, hovering between life and death.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman (A friend described the movie to me before, but couldn't remember the name. I saw the trailer a month ago, and I am interested in seeing the movie - but not before reading the book. Don't know if I like the writing style, but the premise is intriguing.)
If I Stay, Gayle Forman | I did not like this book very much. It was written as if it were a movie. I felt like it didn't paint a picture in my mind while I read it. It was definitely written for younger people. But other than that it was a good story line and very interesting. Quick read.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman this is one fantastic book and the movie is just as good as the book. I have been putting off reading the next one but hopefully will soon. RATED: ****

Our March 21 selection - Still Alice by Lisa Genova. Alice Howland - Harvard professor, gifted researcher and lecturer, wife, and mother of three grown children - sets out for a run and soon realizes she has no idea how to find her way home. She has taken the route for years, but nothing looks familiar. She is utterly lost. Medical consults reveal early-onset Alzheimer's.
Still Alice by Lisa Genova. An interesting, if a bit sensationalist, read about the devastating effects of Alzheimer's. One part scientific interest, another part emotional journey.

And then your purse is all heavy and has awkward rectangle shapes on the outside. And when you ask someone to hold your purse for a couple minutes, they always comment about how you must keep bricks in there. And then you say, "Those aren't bricks, they're books" And then weird looks happen... But it's totally worth it to not be without reading material for a moment :)

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold... I should read this, it's the girl from the Hunger Games in the movie
The lovely bones by Alice Sebold. Did not see the movie. The book was unbearably sad & at times scary.
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold- read it. If you haven't seen the movie, read this first. It's another worthwhile quick read.
The Lovely Bones: Alice Sebold: Amazon.com: Books. Read this when it was first out, before the movie.
The Lovely Bones, by Alice Sebold - Such a good book. I was extremely disappointed with the movie, I mean i know the movie is never as good as the book but the movie really bombed. So my advice, read the book but don't watch the movie.

Worth Reading, Book Club, Books Worth, Cormac Mccarthy, Reading List, Movies, Favorite Books, Roads
The Road by Cormac McCarthy, one of my favorite books of all time. (not sure why, it's quite depressing)
The Road by Cormac McCarthy. No other novels of the Apocalypse need to be written; Mr. McCarthy has penned the be-all, end-all end-of-the-world novel.
The Road by Cormac McCarthy: "It's an adventure, believe it or not — the sort of book that, if only for the relentless clarity of the writing, the lucid descriptions of the grasses, the mud, the thorns, and the very arc of the road that cuts through all that, presents...
My #1 favorite book of all time. Not a book club pick, just a book I loved. I have read this three times, listened to the audio and watched the movie.
I can't wait to read this book. The movie was just amazing. “Just remember that the things you put into your head are there forever, he said. You might want to think about that. You forget some things, dont you? Yes. You forget what you want to remember and you remember what you want to forget.” ― Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Cormac McCarthy is one of the best writers I have read. But his subject matter is quite dark. The Road (this is the book, I have not watched the movie) is about a post-apocalyptic North America. A father and son are walking from the middle of the country to the coast to see if they can find a community that is better. They follow The Road, full of marauding bands and cannibals because it is their last hope. This not a happy book, but it is beautifully and almost poetically written.

Still Alice by Lisa Genova. I want to read this! Alice is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers, disrupting a Harvard career and within two years, spiraling her out of control of her own life. The reader is carried with her, and by the end, you aren't sure who "that man" is either. This story beautifully affirms the infinite worth of those who can no longer recognize or reason.
Still Alice by: Lisa Genova An absolutely amazing book! I found myself truly feeling everything Alice felt as she was experiencing her symptoms increase throughout the development of her Alzheimer's.
"Whether someone you love is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease or not, this book will open your eyes to a whole different world and at the end, you will feel changed."
Still Alice by: Lisa Genova An absolutely amazing book about a woman that receives an Alzheimer's diagnosis.

Gone girl makes you question everything and everyone. The characters are so well written that you don't know whether you should pity them or hate them. By the end you don't even know what you read. Which makes it a great book for a book club.
Jarring... disturbingly accurate in its duality of viewpoints. I love the distinct voices of each of the characters and how the author always keeps you guessing...
Saw the movie first and loved the interesting story line. The book goes even deeper in to just how crazy the two characters are. Loved it.
It's a very difficult era in which to be a person, just a real actual person, instead of a collection of personality traits selected from an endless automat of characters. And if all of us are play-acting, there can be no such thing as a soul mate, because we don't have genuine souls."
This is an amazing book! Lots of twists and turns and def a MUST read!!
