Alice består af fem fortællinger om døden, hvor Alice oplever, genoplever eller bearbejder en mandlig vens, et mandligt familiemedlems eller en mandlig samlevers død. - Anmelderroste Judith Hermann skriver dybt fascinerende om døden og dens betydning for de levende. (-) Der er tale om fremragende fortællinger, som både fungerer hver for sig og som samlet udgivelse. ... I stedet for at skrive om selve dødserfaringen har hun i disse noveller fokus på de voldsomme rystelser og den tomhed, som døden efterlader. - Moritz Schramm, Kristeligt Dagblad. Et lille under af en bog. - Thomas Thurah, Politiken. 6 hjerter

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi Paulec | 2/18/2014

    " First LLL book club read of 2013. The topic generated great discussion. Alzheimer's presented from the perspective of the early-onset patient... Who is an accomplished academic... Yet still prey to the disease. Author presents gripping questions within the text. We can feel the ebbs & flows her own lucidity & insanity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley | 1/27/2014

    " Loved this book. This was a tough book to read in some aspects since it is told from the perspective of a 50 year old woman diagnosed with Alzheimers. It is scary to think about this happening to my parents or myself someday. However, it really gives you a whole new awareness of what people living with Alzheimers must go through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan Reuther | 1/27/2014

    " Powerful and heart-wrenching book. Alzheimers is such a cruel disease, that pulls no punches. The family has been in my head all day and I found myself trying to remember all the details of the tests the main character was being administered to evaluate the disease's progression. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Taylor | 1/13/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read but offered a lot of insight into Alzheimer's disease. The characters were rather predictable, but it showed a quick glimse of the effects on different members of the family. This was book club pick, and there was much to discuss. "

    " I really enjoyed this one. It was a bit depressing but so insightful. There are so many ethical questions raised that I hope never to have to face. I highly recommend this to anyone, but especially those who have loved a person living with dementia. "
