I am willing to put my hands up and admit that from time to time I check out my own books on the Amazon Book Store.
Having said that! It is purely for professional purposes you understand.
As is the case with Amazon searches, a number of books appear on the screen and from what I gather of the process the books with the most reviews or sales tend to pop up on the screen first. As is the case when I search for my debut novel ‘Alice’
‘Still, Alice’ written by Lisa Genova is always the first book to catch my eye. Recently while visiting my local library, I came across the said book and decided to review it using the Goodreads platform.
See below my Goodreads review.
I chose this amazing book from my local library where I am a member of The Book Club. The title of the book caught my attention due to my own debut novel having the title of ‘Alice.’ Both books about true to life events. One written by a neuroscientist and the other a nurse with a BSC in Biological Science.
Written in the first person Lisa Genova gives a well-written insight into the world of Alice. Having worked with dementia patients myself and conducted some of the cognitive tests, I was impressed by the way the author weaved these tests into the story without making it too medical.
Although heart-breaking, there are moments of humor within the story and realistic family dynamics.
I gave four stars because if I am honest. I was a little disappointed with the ending.
