Left Neglected

Left Neglected - Lisa Genova Sarah Nickerson has it all and juggles it beautifully until multi-tasking exacts its toll. While driving to work and making a quick call on her cell phone she is distracted from traffic just a blink of an eye too long and is involved in an accident. Although she survives the accident she has the effects of a lingering brain injury called “left neglect”. For Sarah the whole left side of her perception has disappeared.

While reading this book I couldn’t help but feel Sarah’s horror as she realizes that her life as she knows it has come to an end. Simple things we all take for granted have now become an ordeal. The reader follows along as Sarah readjusts not only how she looks at and functions in her new world, but also how her new life impacts those around her.

It was an entertaining read about an interesting subject of which I no prior knowledge.
