did not like it
Read in July, 2008

It was exciting at first...the idea of losing your memory. But then it fell apart. The insight into a patient and his lack of understanding about what is wrong with him was disturbing. At times I thought his thoughts and behaviors might also be a symptom so I was expecting it to come together somehow. It didn't and was terribly hard to finish. Unfortunately, I have a "finish-what-you-start" guilt thing, so I finished it and I'm glad it's done. Also, I saw no point to the greek history references. Perhaps I'm to dim to see the connections. Oh well.

It won some sort of award....I'm guessing for it's interesting writing style.
