Nota del editor

New release…

The acclaimed author of “Still Alice” is back with another beautifully observed novel—this time, about the ravages of ALS, which feels especially poignant given the recent passing of Stephen Hawking.

Descripción

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 divorce—his 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 hasn't 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 Richard's muscles, voice, and breath fade, both he and Karina try to reconcile their past before it's too late.

Poignant and powerful, Every Note Played is a masterful exploration of redemption and what it means to find peace inside of forgiveness.

    "and he blinked & he blinked"
    The book started slow but ended beautifully. It certainly brings goosebumps while simultaneously exploring unidentified territories and emotions.

    As soon as I saw Every Note Played, I knew I had to read it. The author's writing style lends itself perfectly for capturing the heartbreak and devastation involved when dealing with quickly progressing, degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and ALS. She lets the reader get to know the characters involved slowly and without pulling so hard on our heartstrings that we end up a big sobbing mess and having missed the changes in the individuals and their relationships.

    I honestly don't know how this book could have been better. The two narrators also did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life.

    I highly recommend this book, as well as Still Alice.
