I expected to be disappointed in this book, probably due to a review that I read at some point, but I wanted to read it regardless because I loved Still Alice. Well, I wasn't disappointed at all. This is a really good story. My only problem with it is that Sarah, the main character who is suffering from a brain injury, comes across as the exact same character as Alice from the first book. Their personalities felt like carbon copies. Fortunately I really liked Alice, but would have preferred a new character in Sarah.
I have to say that Lisa Genova has a great talent for explaining a disability in a way that readers can really understand. She can make sense of how things feel. I am also impressed with the fact that she can take such heavy subjects and create stories that are hopeful rather than depressing. I really feel like I take something away from her books, and I look forward to what she will do next. 4.5/5
