    Barnes & Noble are return Nazis. When I tried to return a Christmas gift for store credit (no receipt - it was a gift), the clerk was quite nasty about it. So I conceived an evil scheme: I would buy a book I was only mildly interested in (Lisa Genova's Left Neglected), read it, and then return it. Take that, B&N! A problem arose.Lisa Genova's book isally good. Fascinating, actually. Sarah, the hard-driving, consulting-firm executive and mother of three, wins the daily gamble with her hus [...]

    Often follow-up books seem written to capitalise on the first book's success and this is no exception. It seems as though Genova has invented a new genre, neurological chicklit. I didn't think it was as good as her first book, Still Alice but perhaps that's in part because Still Alice had a likeable protagonist who progressed through a disease and the reader travelled with her. In Left Neglected, Sarah Nickerson is not a likeable person, she's just too up herself with her boasting at every oppor [...]

    In Still Alice Lisa Genova stunningly put into words a woman's sudden and devastating diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's disease. What worked so well was how the book was told from Alice's POV - and you see how she first is able to recognise what is happening to her, and her recognition of how it is effecting those around her, until gradually the condition takes over and so that awareness begins to disintegrate. But at the same time, the novel remained hopeful - despite some dark turns - and t [...]

    I felt intellectual while indulging in Lisa Genova's latest novel, Left Neglected. I wish my chemistry textbook was as interesting as this book, maybe then I'd be more inclined to actively participate in class.Anyway, reading this book was a vicarious experience. It is about a self-proclaimed overachiever, Sarah Nickerson. She manages a position as vice president of a prominent consulting company as well as her husband and three kids. This Harvard graduate suffers from an overbooked schedule, bu [...]

    Left Neglected is another medical novel by Lisa Genova set in a fictional town called Wellmont (really Belmont Massachusetts). Sarah Nickerson, a career-driven Harvard MBA HR consultant, gets in a car accident which leaves her with Left Neglect. A brain injury where the victim's mind cannot identify the left side of her body or surroundings. Sarah does not do well in her new situation, but you can't fell much sympathy as she is not a likable character.This was a book club choice and a disappoint [...]

    I didn't find this book as powerful or influential as Genova's other two books, Still Alice and Inside the O'Briens, in fact the medical tragedy theme is starting to become quite a repetitive and predictable pattern, but I still love this author's prose and the way she captures everyday life shattered by the unthinkable.

    First of all, I think that the title of this book is very clever, just like the novel. When I picked up this book and even after reading the blurb, I had no idea that this book was about a neurological condition - in fact, I'd never even heard of 'Left Neglect' which is a condition also known as hemispatial neglect. This book definitely opened my eyes and taught me about this condition which I previously had no idea about. It was interesting to hear about the main character, Sarah, both before a [...]

    DNFI stopped reading this at a little under the half way mark. It's terrible. It's boring. It's repetitive. The main character is self-absorbed, insufferable and unlikable. I got tired of hearing about how great she is, how great she is at her job, how well educated she isover and over again *eyeroll*The dream sequences at the beginning of the earlier chapters had me scratching my head. I'm not sure what the significance was.I also found her reaction to the "traumatic brain injury" she sustained [...]

Then it's a mad dash out the door to get them to school on time.One morning whilst taking the children to school, Sarah takes her eyes off the road for a split moment. Befor [...]

    I found the topic of this book, that is the disability suffered by the main character, to be very interesting indeed and some of her problems and therapies were fascinating.However I found I could not like her at all and this detracted from my pleasure in the book. There was a good story in there which kept me going to the end but I can't say I enjoyed all of it. It was okay but not one of the better books I have read this year so far.

    Left Neglected is an inspiring, informative and lightly humorous novel with a clear message for everyone to slow down and really think what they are doing. Our safety and life are not worth risking a deadline or an appointment. Sarah Nickerson and her husband, Bob, have a busy lifestyle. Bob works for a company that is financially unstable, and Sarah has a high profile position as vice president for a consulting firm. They are parents to young children, juggling a demanding career and home life, [...]

    This is the worst book I've read in a very long time. I was attracted to the story idea: an over-achieving, American life-script-following business lady is changed dramatically by a brain injury that leaves her without the ability to register the left side of her body or anything in her left field of vision. I thought it would be interesting to hear about her existential fears, fear of change, etc, and how she figures out that her lifestyle was ridiculously unsustainable, bravely moving out of t [...]

    This book was loaned to me with a glowing recommendation. I found the plot familiar and predictable, and thought the main character mentioned her cherished Harvard MBA with absurd frequency. That said, I recognize the broad appeal of pulp chick lit, and expect to see the Hollywood edition advertised soon.

    I'm so glad I read this book! I learned things I knew 'nothing' about!!! WOW!!! What an interesting story. I'm going to have to read 'all' books that Lisa Genova writes. (she picks very interesting topics) --Her stories feel 'real' because they are 'medical' type 'historical' fiction. Fascinating --human heart spirit! I love her small books! (lasting in remembering!)What's next? :)

    Left Neglect is a neurological condition resulting from right-hemisphere brain damage. Working from an assumption that the brain matches sensory input to a number of expected templates, we gain some understanding of how the patient is not aware of the deficit until it is brought to her attention. Thus, Sarah thinks she is drawing a complete face, or seeing the food on both sides of her plate. (Her drawing only has one eye, and the food on the left side of her plate is uneaten). The most interest [...]

    I was quite impressed with Lisa Genova's Still Alice, her debut novel depicting Alice Holland, a 50 year old Harvard professor, descent into Alzheimer's disease. Genova, who holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience got it just right in that first outing. The story stays with me and is one I recommend frequently.When a first book is so good, can a second outing hold up? The premise of the new book immediately caught my attention. Sarah Nickerson, holds a high octane job in a busy Human Relations Dept. 60 ho [...]

    I usually go into books blind so I don't have any preconceptions of what I am reading and then a couple of chapters in I will read the synopsis. Left Neglected was a very fitting title for this novel by Lisa Genova and has a very powerful message that we all need to slow down and realize what we are doing as it can be changed or taken away from us so quickly. We make that one poor judgement call without realizing the consequences before it is too late. It was a very enjoyable and light read whic [...]

    This book was interesting. I didn't find it as gripping as "Still Alice" (which is one of my favourite books) but it was a good story. Perhaps I would have enjoyed it a bit more if I had waited to read it as I have a family member dealing with the effects of trauma to the brain and I am sensitive to the topic. Still, I would definitely recommend this one to everyone who enjoyed Genova's first book "Still Alice".

    Well it is not such a surprise to me that the Author of "Still Alice" would put out another 5 star book!I loved this book so much I even had a hard time putting it down to eat dinner. This is going to be one of my favorite books of 2011. The first 60 pages reads very much like a Chick-Lit book, it is light and funny. A day to day account of the everyday life of an average middle class working wife and mother of 3. It is about her kids misbehaving, teacher meetings, her stressful job, and how few [...]

    Why the review was under comments I am not sure?? FixedWonderful! I fell in love with Genova's book Still Alice and was hopeful that I would be as enthralled with this one. She did not dissapoint! I had never heard of this "odd" brain injury, and she again tells the story from the view of the person struggling. It was fascinating. I felt the ups and downs, how each person in the family dealt with a "new Sarah" was great. Loved the relationship with her Mother but more so how she came to bond wit [...]

    Simon Lipson
    A novel about a woman who loses her perception of her left side after a car accident. Erat's it, save to say that it's not as interesting as I've just made it sound. This reads like the droning, self-pitying rehabilitation memoir of a nobody. You lost your left side. We got it. Thanks. And now you're trying to get better. Why another 300 pages saying the same thing over and over and over and over? No insights, no progression, no story, no characters worth investing in; only self-indulgent, slopp [...]

    This is only one step elevated from being what I call an "issue" book, as the characters seem to be slightly more than profiles taken from the textbooks devoted to the issue, given names and bodies, and little else. On the other hand, in order to emphasize most thoroughly the impact of the medical condition she's chosen to explore, Genova has given us a main character is who is almost unbearably annoying.Note: The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in policy and enforceme [...]

    Debbie "DJ"
    Another great book from Genova. A split second of texting while driving changes everything. The main character suffers a brain injury called Left Brain Neglect, the book sees everything through her eyes. Truly fascinating.

    I sat in my car listening to Diane Rehm interview Lisa Genova about her new book. I couldn't get out of the car until the show was over. I scribbled down the title and anxiously waited for the mailman to deliver my copy of Left Neglected. I'm so glad I stumbled on the interview.It seams trite to ask: Do you take your life for granted? Don't we all at some point? Until we lose something or someone that seems trivial, we move in a rut, not seeing what a wonderful gift life can be.It only takes a s [...]

    I have just finished five or six works of literary fiction and any other novels of ordinary fiction following those might have paled in comparison but LEFT neglected stood firm as an excellent novel. Lisa Genova has the gift of involving the reader from the first couple of pages. I admit to feeling exhausted as I read of Sarah's hectic and high-powered day pre-accident and felt equally encumbered as she struggled with LEFT neglect. Genova manages to impart an informed but not not overly clinical [...]

    Excellent book on a topic I knew next-to-nothing about.Sarah Nickerson is a high-powered, multi-talented, work-and-family challenged woman of 37 when she's driving to work, looks at her phone, gets in a wreck and suffers a traumatic brain injury - on the right side of her brain. As a result she is diagnosed with 'left neglected,' a medical condition in which the brain cannot see or recognize the left side of - well just about anything. This includes a room, a plate, a book or book page, and even [...]

    Sarah Nickerson is your typical overachiever protagonist -- major career, mom of three, multitasker extraordinaire. Her multitasking proves to be her undoing when, looking something up on her cell phone while driving, she is in a serious car accident. This novel describes the process of her coming to terms with both her traumatic brain injury and resulting "left neglect" which causes her to ignore the left side of her visual field, and her estranged mother who insists on entering her life now an [...]

    This is another brilliant novel by Lisa Genova! Sarah Nickerson is the vice president of human resources at Berkley Consulting.e is also Mum to Charlie, Luci and 9 month old Linus, plus wife to Bob. On a day like any other, driving to work, frantically rushing, trying to make a call on her phone, she looked away from the road for a second too long, and had a horrific accident. She woke in hospital with a traumatic brain injury, which erased the left side of her world. She couldn't see or find an [...]
