Turn of Mind Read ´ 102 A New York Times bestseller Turn of Mind is a literary thriller about a retired orthopedic surgeon suffering from dementia and accused of killing her best friend With unmatched patience and a pulsating intensity Alice LaPlante's debut novel brings us deep into a brilliant woman’s deteriorating mind where the impossibility of recognizing reality can be both a blessing and a curseWhen the book opens Dr Jennifer White’s best This novel chooses an unusual perspective for its narrator and in my view accomplishes it well Dr Jennifer White is a retired orthopedic surgeon self retired apparently due to self recognized signs of developing dementia All the action of the novel is seen through her eyes filtered through her changing brain There is a central mystery a murder and all the various personalities and plot points are revealed but in completely non traditional ways through the fragmented thoughts and words of this deteriorating person struggling to maintain herself and her worldThe mystery is not as important as the portrait of the person and the illness what Alzheimers and other dementias do to the person the personality Having worked with many people with dememtia over the years the portrait presented by LaPlant seems to capture the essence of what I ve observed well At the same time she captures the struggle of people around the doctor those who love her those trying to help those who really don t care once again all through the doctor s eyes I guess I ll wonder how close LaPlante has come to how those patients have viewed meHighly recommended
