Journal Entry 2 by wingbooklady331wing at Cape Coral, Florida USA on Tuesday, June 20, 2017
I LOVED Genova’s other books Still Alice, Left Neglected, and really liked inside the O’briens . I felt that Genova really captured the tragedy of Alzheimer’s and dementia in Still Alice. Left Neglect captured traumatic brain injury. The brain is such a mystery to us lay persons and Genova lets us peek inside to show us the effects of these complex ailments. Genova manages to weave a compelling story so that her character's struggles become your own heartbreaking struggles for that short time.

I enjoyed Anthony and Olivia's story. I felt that Genova did a good job telling their story and struggle. But I didn't care for Beth's story. Her writing Anthony's story as some sort of catharsis from her jerky husband cheating on her seemed implausible. Her group of friends was a distraction to the story and didn’t add anything but to make the story border on chick lit instead of literature.
I would still recommend this book, but it isn’t in the same league as her other works. Love Anthony seems to border on chick-lit whereas the previous books were not and so it suffers a bit by comparison.
