    tangledthread: This book also deals with a well educated woman coping with dementia
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Unlike the psychologically suspenseful mystery Turn of Mind, Still Alice is mainstream fiction. Despite differences in plot, genre, and feel, both sensitively portray the disorientation and disintegrating memory of Alzheimer's patients.… (mere)

LaPlante is an exquisitely talented writer with a storytelling style that completely meshed with my tastes and temperament. I could not get enough of this book, a "Still Alice," turned on its head, although the ending was somewhat abrupt and unsatisfying. The characters were fascinating, yet lacked some detail, which would have enriched LaPlante's already enthralling narrative... and narrator. My strongest complaint would have to be the terrible title of this really good book...so boring and unmemorable! ( )

I find this book terrifying given the Alzheimer's runs in my family. The thought of not remembering what a toothbrush is is unbearable. ( )

An amazingly well-written story! The book has a mystery wrapped up in a tale of a woman who is suffering from dementia. The writing takes the reader through the daily thoughts of this woman who was once an orthopedic surgeon and who now struggles to remember her own children. It is am amazing look at what it must feel like to suffer from this terrible disease. The thread of the murder of her best friend is constantly nagging in the background to be solved with a twist at the end of the novel.

. LaPlante tells the story poignantly, gracefully and artistically...Despite the near stream-of-consciousness, Faulknerian Sound and Fury presentation, the narrative is easily followed to the resolution of the mystery and White’s ultimate melancholy and inevitable end.

A haunting story masterfully told.
 
For us, the supposedly normal, seeing the truth through the scrim of an unreliable perspective makes the story more layered and, paradoxically, its meaning clearer....

"Turn of Mind" has its own contemporary twist on this device. ...So how does LaPlante, who teaches writing at Stanford and San Francisco State, pull a story out of someone with no memory? In a word: deftly.
 
Alzheimer's disease doesn't seem like a great subject for a page-turner. Affecting 10% of us over 65 and 50% older than 85, it inspires dread in the culture. And yet a page-turner is exactly what Alice LaPlante has crafted with "Turn of Mind," a novel told from the point of view of a woman with dementia. LaPlante manages to take hold of the aforementioned dread and modulate it, creating a startling range and texture of fear. From agonizing, slow-motion-car-crash moments to the ironic frissons of a good horror movie, she hits every bell.
 
Turn of Mind is a debut novel by Alice LaPlante billed as a "literary thriller": that it sure is.... what bumps Turn of Mind up into the exalted Daphne du Maurier/Ruth Rendell category of "literary thriller" is LaPlante's fearless and compassionate investigation into the erosion of her main character's mind. ..If this were a straight work of literary fiction, that grim storyline might be too hard to stick with; but, that's where the suspense formula rescues this tale from despair.

Unreliable narrators come in many shapes...And then there is Dr. Jennifer White, who narrates Alice LaPlante’s first novel. By the time “Turn of Mind” begins, she is losing her wits to Alzheimer’s disease and is the prime suspect in her best friend’s murder. She is as unreliable as they come. ...Alzheimer’s is bleak territory, and to saddle Jennifer with suspected murder seems cruel and unusual punishment. But in LaPlante’s vivid prose, her waning mind proves a prism instead of a prison, her memory refracted to rich, sensual effect. ....The twists and turns of mind this novel charts are haunting and original.

For Alice Gervase O'Neill LaPlante
Første ord

Something has happened. You can always tell. You come to and find wreckage: a smashed lamp, a devastated human face that shivers on the verge of being recongnizable. Occasionally someone in uniform: a paramedic, a nurse. A hand extended with a pill. Or poised to insert a needle.
