Someone is feeling neglected. My son and his family have moved in for a few days, sewer problems in their rental house... But Shiloh is not feeling it, she has to compete with my 2 granddaughters and their dog (in the background, laying on Shiloh's blanket) poor baby. 😂

TheSpineView Poor thing! It's hard when you are used to being an only child! 🧡🐾 4w

Brilliant. Genoa can make a reader empathize with the people who suffer from TBI. I'd never heard of this condition till I read this book. She brings the brutality, the stubbornness, the overwhelming frustration, the ultimate humility, and even humor to the forefront. This book is just as well written as Still Alice.

Imagine that in an instant half of your world disappears. You can see but not process information presented on the left side of your body. Right hemisphere dysfunction or “left neglect” is the focus of this heart wrenching book. This is a fictionalization but highly accurate portrait of the havoc this type of brain injury can have on people and their families. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Having a mother who suffered a severe stroke three years ago and still deals with Left Neglect, this book was a familiar and great read for me. Cried my way through the last few chapters. Once again, the resilience of the human spirit is unbelievable. 💕

This was on my TBR pile and thought I‘d give it a go as I just finished her latest. Bad idea . I‘m sure it‘s not the book but me. Enough of doom and gloom I needed something lighter. Maybe one day I‘ll give it another go. I‘m sure a few of you reading this liked it. Just me right now! Not the book. Next review will show you what I read to lighten up my life .😊

My favorite thing after finishing a book is to look closely at the cover art. It means so much more after reading the story within. Maybe that‘s why movie covers are so aggravating to me. This story was just the right blend of heartbreaking and uplifting without being trite. #LitsyAtoZ

You know someone is from New England when they use the term “water bubbler” 😁

No_One I have never heard this term! Does it mean “water fountain”? 2y
MelissaS @No_One yes, it means water fountain. Growing up, we just said “bubbler.” I remember saying that when I moved to grad school in AZ and nobody knew what I meant 😂 2y
No_One @MelissaS so interesting! Thank you! 2y
Aseleener It's also a Wisconsin thing. I had never heard it before I moved here. I've heard it is because of the Kohler company. 2y

This is a very well researched book on left neglect which I throughly enjoyed. Left neglect is a form of brain damage where you lose your left side of everything. The author pulled me right into the book and I felt I was there, sometimes I laughed and sometimes I felt incredibly sad. This book will stay with me for a long time.

Loved this book and finished in 2 days. I have a good understanding now of an issue that happens with a TBI, and also happened to my Dad with his brain tumor. Explains so much. I really like this author, will try others of hers. Also showing my hydrangeas, which are neglected until Spring...

JanuarieTimewalker13 Still Alice was very good in audio, LG reads 3y

Was a good read and a quick read. Really liked the layout of the characters and the injections of mild humour amidst the unfortunate events/circumstances. 3.5/5

I think Genova is brilliant at capturing insights into the mind of someone suffering with a mental ailment, but I consistently find myself wishing that her writing ability matched her insights. This book is fascinating for shedding light on a little-known disorder that had me continually trying to imagine my own self coping with the affliction.
