    Lisa Genova has done it again! In Still Alice, she wrote movingly about a professor who in mid-life develops Alzheimer's disease and we experience the progression of that memory-stealing disease through her eyes.

    In this her latest book, the disease Genova takes on is ALS, ironically in the news again this week with the death of physicist Steven Hawking. In her story, the man who learns he has ALS is a classic pianist by the name of Richard Evans and the first blow he suffers is the loss of the u

    Lisa Genova does it again with another brilliant portrayal of an insidious disease stealing the life of her main character. As is always the case with her novels, the ugly truth is revealed about flawed families, broken dreams, and the indignities of this cruelest disease. I wonder with each of her books just how long her formula will yield (such spectacular) results, but she got me again...glued to this compulsively readable story and in the end sobbing for its unlikeable protagonist, then for ...more

    Lisa Genova always tackles the tough issues. Alzheimer’s. Autism. Huntington’s Disease. This time it’s ALS, Lou Gehrig’s Disease. But this one doesn’t go for the obvious sympathy vote. Richard is a concert pianist and is losing the one thing he loves, which is the piano. But he’s also a prick. Divorced from his wife, estranged from his college aged daughter. He’s on top of the world as far as his profession, but once the symptoms of ALS start, he’s forced to see how empty his life is.

    5 educational and emotionally resonant stars to Every Note Played, my first Lisa Genova novel! 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

    I cannot imagine this book being any more emotionally-engaging than it was! I was enthralled from the first chapter, and part of it may have been due to a small personal connection.

    Richard is a famous concert pianist diagnosed with ALS. His ex-wife, Karina, teaches children piano lessons in his shadow. When Karina learns of Richard’s diagnosis, she walks through many different expected emotio

    His neurons are dying, and the muscles they feed are literally starving for input. Every twitch is a muscle stammering, gasping, begging to be saved. They can't be saved.


    I don't know what it is that makes these, um... medical dramas(?) of Genova's so damn compelling. Some writers just seem to have that certain way with words that draws you into the story and the characters' lives. It doesn't matter that her books aren't action-packed; they are pageturners anyway.

    “Everything begins and ends. Every day and night, every concerto, every relationship, every life. Everything ends eventually.”

    There is what happens in this story, but also what this story is about. As much a powerfully moving story about ALS as it is about bitterness, resentment and, ultimately, forgiveness. Flawed characters and a fractured family, each with their own story to tell…'funny how the story of their lives can be an entirely different genre depending on the narrator.’

    I was so captiva

    Lisa Genova has done it again – this is an absolutely brilliant book about ALS and the effects on the entire family. Genova has a gift for putting her readers right there with her characters. She does a great service in fostering knowledge and empathy for all those affected by the diseases she writes about. I buddy read this with my GR friend Victoria and it inspired some truly fantastic discussions. Thanks Victoria!
