Book Beginnings: Still Alice

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

"Alice sat at her desk in their bedroom distracted by the sounds of John racing through each of the rooms on the first floor."

I like how the book starts with a moment of irony: the spouse of Alice (who is shortly going to be diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's) has lost his keys and the character who soon will be the forgetful one, will find them.

I read this book a couple of years ago and though it was really good and very moving. I hope you like it. Happy weekend! http://thelittlereaderlibrary.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/book-beginnings-12-ten-things-ive.html
