Every Note Played
Every Note Played | Lisa Genova
From neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author of Still Alice comes a powerful and heartbreaking exploration of regret, forgiveness, freedom, and what it means to be alive. An accomplished concert pianist, Richard received standing ovations from audiences all over the world in awe of his rare combination of emotional resonance and flawless technique. Every finger of his hands was a finely calibrated instrument, dancing across the keys and striking each note with exacting precision. That was eight months ago. Richard now has ALS, and his entire right arm is paralyzed. His fingers are impotent, still, devoid of possibility. The loss of his hand feels like a death, a loss of true love, a divorcehis divorce. He knows his left arm will go next. Three years ago, Karina removed their framed wedding picture from the living room wall and hung a mirror there instead. But she still hasnt moved on. Karina is paralyzed by excuses and fear, stuck in an unfulfilling life as a piano teacher, afraid to pursue the path she abandoned as a young woman, blaming Richard and their failed marriage for all of it. When Richard becomes increasingly paralyzed and is no longer able to live on his own, Karina becomes his reluctant caretaker. As Richards muscles, voice, and breath fade, both he and Karina try to reconcile their past before its too late. As poignant and powerful as Jojo Moyess Me Before You, Every Note Played is a masterful exploration of redemption and what it means to find peace inside of forgiveness.

I read this beautiful book yesterday on my friend Dan‘s birthday. He died after a 25 yr war against ALS. Our communication was often email, and It was a great effort for his eyes to create a sentence. I once wrote him reminiscing of our glorious fictional day in NYC, walking through Central Park sharing a coney dog. I had to apologize for years after because even fictional - he decided I owed him a better imaginary meal!

TrishB 😘 lovely story. 3d
Megabooks Hugs to you! 3d
marleed @TrishB @Megabooks Oh thank you. He was bedridden in my hometown for over 20 years. At first he communicated only by blinking but later by his computer speaking often minutes after moving on from a topic. In email we seldom mentioned ALS, and our imaginary day in NYC on his birthday was often discussed. How was I to know his disdain for the great American hot dog! 3d

If I have to travel for work, the least I can do is support the local book store. 🤷‍♀️ Bargain books! And, of course, a couple of new bookmarks, and a new coffee cup for my desk, and...and...

And the #TBR grows.

I am really enjoying spending a few days off reading my backlist, but, wow will this book make you cry. Genova is so good at writing such poignant stories about not only these horrible diseases (which she takes such care of doing), but the emotional impact of the ailing person, and family, friends and caregivers. Have a tissue box ready.

I loved one of these workers in the story. These are amazing people, those who care for the terminally ill, and with diseases where bit-by-bit, someone needs to help with everything. Have to admit, though, that I didn‘t (at least for the first bit of the book) like either Richard or Karina. But, we learn more about them, their relationship, their histories, and how they ended up where they are as the story goes on.

Listening to the last 30 minutes of this audiobook while I tackle my Medical Keyboarding lesson. I keep tearing up though, so it‘s hard to see what I‘m typing. Heartbreaking, but lovely. Lisa Genova is a fantastic writer, and I‘ve loved all the books I‘ve read by her. I have a few more on my shelf, but I‘ll need a bit of a break before I read another one. They‘re heart wrenchingly real. ♥️

Suddenly his passion and livelihood is unobtainable. Richard is forced to face this ugly disease, and confront the regrets and despair of a life cut short.

A heartbreaking, no-apologies story about ALS. This is my first Genova book and It feels honest and true. I liked that it taught much about the debilitating disease, and at the same time focused on its effect on the relationship of the characters. Highly recommended!

And I will read more of her books, just not right away 😅

Heartbreakingly real. Eye opening. Fiction but yet could be non-fiction... helps you realize the helpless terror of losing your life to a disease that comes out of nowhere. Like walking into a glass door when you fully expected to continue taking a step into the sunshine lit outdoors.

(Still, 16 Feb is ridiculously early for spring in northern England. I predict the cold returning, blasting all the flowers and confusing all the egg-sitting birds.)

Richard is a concert pianist who has spent his life following his passion while neglecting his family. Karina gave up her own career to support Richard and raise their daughter. One day, Richard feels a tingle in one finger. Soon, he‘s lost control of his hand and received a diagnosis: ALS. Karina becomes his reluctant caretaker.

A moving portrayal of a couple and the brutal disease that forces them to finally forgive themselves and each other.

I don‘t cry at books, only movies. I teared up at the 2nd to last chapter & sobbed at the last one. It‘s possible that this was triggered by the fact that I had Chopin‘s Nocturne in E flat Major (which is mentioned in the last chapter) playing at the same time, as I am a 🎶 lover. This book was an emotional read that I truly enjoyed. I highly recommend it, & having your streaming music service ready to listen to the music mentioned as you read.

Just finished for book club . Mixed feelings. Loved the acknowledgments. I got a lot out of reading these.
A first for me, trying to have empathy for a character I didn‘t particularly like.
I‘ve just been to see the movie The Children‘s Act with Emma Thompson. I could see her playing the lead female role if this book ever made into a movie.Certainly educated me about motor neurone disease . So sad.

CarolynM Great review. I only read Still Alice because it was a book group choice, but I liked it a lot. Haven't got around to this one yet. 14mo
Jeg @CarolynM we also did Still Alice for book club a good while ago. It will be interesting to see what everyone thinks of this one. Made even more interesting by the fact we are discussing it at our Xmas brunch — unlimited wine for some! 😊 14mo

Ok, so this was good but not great IMO. I love the way Genova uses quality fiction to teach us about real conditions, but I don‘t think she nailed it here.
Her novel Still Alice was incredibly good & taught me a lot about dementia. I related to and felt for the well developed characters.
In Every Note Played the characters were not as well drawn. A worthwhile read though & I‘m glad to have learnt some more about the devastation of MND/ALS.

JennyM Great review...I completely agree. 1y

My #currentread for book club.

When you know the book is about ALS (or MND as we call it in Australia) you know it‘s not likely to be an uplifting read 😢. And of course with Genova‘s amazing research skills, ability to write and her background in neuroscience you know it‘s gonna be a well put together book. But oh my it‘s depressing. Must. Read. On.

Man alive, this one tugs at the heart strings! Lisa is just as gifted at making the progression of ALS tangible in this book as she was with dementia in Still Alice. My grandfather passed from this brutal disease so it was extra meaningful to me. I cried on the train over the ending, truly not caring who saw me.
