here are not too many people I have read about that I would actually like to meet but Alice is definitely one. At the age of 108 she takes walks to stay healthy, eschewing a walker but wearing tennis shoes, she plays the piano everyday and just until recently was taking classes in philosophy and history. Though the book does explain about the situation in Czechoslovakia, that led to her families internment in the concentration camp, she refuses to dwell on it and if fact once she and her son, the only two left are liberated she really doesn't like to discuss it, because she doesn't want people to feel sorry for her. This book was more a celebration of life and music. Exceptional book about an exceptional person.
