Still Alice

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Lisa Genova

Narrated By: Lisa Genova

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Audio

Date: January 2009

Duration: 8 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

In Lisa Genova’s extraordinary New York Times bestselling novel, an accomplished woman slowly loses her thoughts and memories to Alzheimer’s disease—only to discover that each day brings a new way of living and loving. Now a major motion picture starring Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth, and Kristen Stewart!

Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children and a house on the Cape, is a celebrated Harvard professor at the height of her career when she notices a forgetfulness creeping into her life. As confusion starts to cloud her thinking and her memory begins to fail her, she receives a devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Fiercely independent, Alice struggles to maintain her lifestyle and live in the moment, even as her sense of self is being stripped away. In turns heartbreaking, inspiring, and terrifying, Still Alice captures in remarkable detail what it’s like to literally lose your mind...

Reminiscent of A Beautiful Mind, Ordinary People, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, Still Alice packs a powerful emotional punch and marks the arrival of a strong new voice in fiction.

    The book is interesting, really. But the narrator was not great honestly. Boring and monotonous timbre of voice.

  • Nayeli B

    I really enjoyed this book. The narrators voice was calm and soothing. It brought insight to the thoughts of a person with EOA.

  • Joelle B

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audio book. Loved the narrator's soothing voice - very easy to listen to. Learning about EOD was very interesting but sad also. Very well written. Looking forward now to watching the film. I think Julianne Moore will be perfect for the role of Alice and I pictured her in my mind as I listened to the book.

  • Susan Bath

    Wow, this book is a must read for everyone. It gives amazing insight into Alzheimer's. I loved the simple narration. I felt like I was reading it, only I didn't have to use my eyes.

  • Pooja Shah

    This was an absolute delight to read. The narrator did a great job at narrating the book and for giving life to the characters. I felt a sense of emotional committment- the character's pain was my own. Great read.

  • Marybeth Segars

    Brilliant book! I liked the way it straddled between the storyline and her thoughts. I particularly enjoyed the insight into her mind (and feelings). I quickly grew attached to her. And my heart hurt for her as her mental health declined. The author did a good job narrating. It felt pure and that was appropriate given the style of the book. Well done.

  • Marcia Wicks

    One of my favorite books and narrators. I actually listened to it twice. My father had Alzheimer's and it brought back memories although he became violent and so a very sad time for our whole family.

  • Stacey Rentfrow

    Very insightful book about the reality of EOAD. So grateful for the story. Loved the book as it was so real and heartfelt from every angle.

  • Shona Mason

    Very moving. I actually liked that the narration was not 'acted': I liked the simplicity, I liked that it was more like reading a book when you have to work out how people would have sounded, it allowed me to use my imagination too. I felt Alice's journey through the narration. The growing detachment is poignant. I am glad I have listened to the book instead of watching the film. It is difficult to say I enjoyed the book as it is a challenging subject but I did enjoy the balance between character, story and factual information and the insight into the effect of this condition on the sufferer. The speech was beautiful.

  • Jody Vulk

    Great book. Very thought provoking. However, it lacked character recognition. The author read all of the characters similarly. There were conversations that were confusing at first, figuring out who said what.
