Every note played by Lisa Genova
In Lisa Genova's exploration of how LSA (think Stephen Hawking) affects Richard - a world renowned concert pianist, his family and caregivers, Lisa has created a poignant personal story of loss and life. This story , far more than her other novels tells of the mental, physical affects on all the characters. Richard the main character, Karina his ex-wife, daughter Grace and caregiver Bill are all real people coping with an overwhelming situation. Based on accounts from accounts from LSA sufferers, it like her other novels tells in a story the progress of a disease.
I found this novel over heavy in the medical details and skimpier on the the necessary background family/relationship plot lines that flesh out a story. I did enjoy it but feel shortchanged on the possible character development, that would have made it more real.
