Still Alice was very interesting considering my grandmother had Alzheimer's disease, and I definitely feel my passion for memory-keeping is produced by some kind of "fear of forgetting." It was a book club pick and I read it in just one day on Adam's ipad (all copies were checked out of the library.) The only surprise is that as emotional as I am, I did not tear up once? I definitely felt a lack of "emotional connection" with the characters (although I liked them) but that may be because Alice is not the most "emotional" lady? Or maybe the disease has something to do with that?
On the other hand... Until I Say Goodbye had me balling over and over! A friend loaned it to me and it was very good. I definitely am still thinking about it almost daily... almost everytime I use my iphone... as she wrote most all of it on her phone.
A friend and I swapped books after chatting at the pool. I can't even remember which one I gave her and she loaned me Switch. I LOVE it! While I have not finished it, I love the content and it is my kind of book. I was a Political Science major in college but over the years have felt jaded by politics and government and "freakonomics." This book just might give me the energy to find that passion again. Very interesting read :)
My mother in law loaned me this book and I love it! I am going very slowly and underlining a TON. I love how in the very beginning he explains what has always mystified me about "evolution." (Hint: it depends on how you define it.) I also love how so much of what he writes coincides with what I remember reading from Dr. Eben Alexander in Proof of Heaven! I am such a dork that I would love to be back in college writing a paper comparing and contrasting the two books!
