Another of my now typical brief reviews. Maybe I'll start calling the 'review-lets' .... maybe not.
This one is:
I must say, the intriguing name lured me toward this piece first off, and it deals with some interesting, out of the norm neurological conditions which are fascinating, but unless you are looking at this book in conjunction with research, it's not always reader friendly.
stated at the very beginning of the book that he wanted to tell the
personal tales of these people, that records of them were so sterile and
impersonal, and while he tried with introductory anecdotal information
at the beginning of each case, he lapsed right into doctor-speak and
lost my interest every time.
So I mark this book as 'read' only because I don't have a 'skimmed to the end' category.
2/5 for this one I'm afraid. And really sad to have to do it. I had such high hopes.
