I really enjoyed this book and ended up reading it in one sitting. It is at times heartbreaking, heartwarming, and surprisingly, also laugh-out-loud funny. The plotting is predictable, but the subject matter is so fascinating that it really carries the book along. Much as I enjoyed "Still Alice", the author's previous work, I found that I connected more with this book and felt enriched my its inspirational message.

I started this book hating the main character. I couldn't wait for her to have her accident, because I felt like she deserved it (I promise, I'm not that vindictive in real life!). Genova does an excellent job attempting to teach the reader about this condition called Left Neglect that many probably have never heard of before. Sarah becomes a sympathetic character along the way. I didn't like this as much as I liked Still Alice, but again, I liked Alice and couldn't stand Sarah at first, which probably had a lot to do with it.

Every bit as good as Lisa Genova's other book, Still Alice. Wonderfully written snapshot of a life totally changed by an accident. A+
