    Story
    (92)

    An exploration of vision through the case histories of six individuals - including a renowned pianist who continues to give concerts despite losing the ability to read the score, and a neurobiologist born with crossed eyes who, late in life, suddenly acquires binocular vision, and how her brain adapts to that new skill.

    Lynn says: "Blindness"
    "Same ole Sacks--great yarns as usual."
    Overall

    If you're a fan of Anthropologist on Mars, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for Hat, etc., then you'll enjoy this one too. It's not better but it's as good as his previous tales.

    *O.Sacks only narrates preface and Ch. 6. The other narrator (the voice of whom many will recognize; he was narrator for the 90s computer game, King's Quest: Land of the Green Isles,lol) starts to get VERY annoying because he can't find the rhythm and flow of the text. He keeps throwing emphases on the wrong words and phrases; he's obviously trying too hard with the "storyteller" voice. That's only reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5.
