What I'm Reading: Turn of Mind

Turn of MindTurn of Mind by Alice LaPlante

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Excellent! Marvelous glimpse into the mind of a woman with Alzheimer's, coupled with an intriguing murder mystery. I might've given it five stars, but there's a disorienting shift in POV about two-thirds of the way through the book that kind of bothered me. The story itself is very cleverly told. I was deeply moved by the plight of this formerly brilliant surgeon whose mind is deteriorating rapidly. But I was also carried along by the suspense of trying to figure out whether she had in fact murdered her best friend, and if so, why?
