Remember is a nonfiction book by neuroscientist and author Lisa Genova about memories and the brain. She discusses how the brains of people with Alzheimer’s work as well as why we remember traumatic experiences, like exactly where we were when 9/11 happened, but not what we ate for dinner last Wednesday. This is because the routine things in our lives are just that – routine, nothing special, and when something out of the ordinary happens, we are most likely to remember it. An in depth look at the brain and our memories, this book definitely piqued my interest and made me want to learn more.
