It's a chilling book in a way, as it describes a drastic change in circumstances that *could* happen to any active person. Would I cope as well as Karen does?
I didn't enjoy the [to me] more fanciful episodes in Karen's life - seeking the magic cure, as it were, but I'm pretty sure I'd be equally desperate to find improvements too. However, the overall story is of a very determined person's drive to achieve - not just normality, but in challenges that would daunt most able-bodied people.
