it was ok

I feel like I am a terrible person for not liking this book more. I liked the stories, but felt like most of them went on too long and were too meandering. I just can't get down with Sacks' writing style. I know tons of people love his books, so anyone reading this review should try it for themselves. I do love hearing Sacks on the radio though, so if you don't like his writing search out his appearances on Radiolab!

Lauren This is good to know. I love his appearances on RadioLab but have been kind of "meh" about his writing. I'm glad to read this review for validation! You're not the only one. :-)

Laurie And I appreciate your validation back! :)
