I read this book in 3 days. I felt so sorry, for the main character, and had the same feelings as the ex, as I read. I really had empathy for her, and the daughter. I love this authors books, you learn so much. Better then reading a text book. Highly recommend it. I give it 5 stars!

Beautiful story about a horrible disease. I have read all of Lisa Genova's books and have loved them all. I find her books make the characters so real that they haunt me everytime I put the book down that I need to pick it up every chance I can. Every Note played kept me glued to the story, thinking about it when I wasn't able to read and looking for my next opportunity to share in Richard and Karina's story as well as being drawn into every character that was part of this story! If you don't normally read the acknowledgements I encourage you to read the acknowledgments in this one. I savored these pages as much as Richard and Karina's story. I'm not a movie person but this would be a movie I most definitely would make sure I didn't miss. I look forward to more from Lisa Genova!

I can't wait to read this new book by Lisa Genova - neuroscientist turned bestselling author. This is her fourth novel. Each featuring a different neurological disease. Each as interesting and gut wrenching as the last. If you want to be fully absorbed by a story - you must read one of Lisa's books.

This is the third novel, written by Lisa Genova, that I have read. She does not disappoint. With Every Note Played, the author of Still Alice and Left Neglected puts the reader inside the body and mind of a concert pianist stricken with ALS. Richard's talent has brought him devoted audiences from all over the world. Until the diagnosis of ALS. He is divorced from Karina due to lack of communication and his cheating with other women. It soon becomes evident that Richard cannot manage his illness while living alone and Karina moves him back to the family home that he left years before. What shines in this novel is the way the author presents this illness in such a sympathetic and detailed way. You will find yourself holding your breath when Richard has difficulty breathing and you will also experience the disease through Karina's eyes. This is not just the account of an illness. It is the story of a man and a woman. Highly recommended.

Follow the journey of a concert pianist and his estranged ex-wife after he is diagnosed with ALS. Unflinchingly real and beautifully written, this story will grab you by the heart and hold you until the final page.

"In. Out.
This is now his song to play. He is not this paralyzed body, these screaming lungs, this primal fear. He will be an instrument of breathing.
Breathe."
