I'm an obsessive reader of science fiction, psychological thrillers, and anything that might distract me from the misery that is exercise.

    Story
    (108)

    For 200 years, a noble Venetian family has suffered from an inherited disease that strikes their members in middle age, stealing their sleep, eating holes in their brains, and ending their lives in a matter of months. In Papua New Guinea, a primitive tribe is nearly obliterated by a sickness whose chief symptom is uncontrollable laughter. Across Europe, millions of sheep rub their fleeces raw before collapsing. What these strange conditions share is their cause: prions.

    David says: "A great scientific mystery"
    "A pleasure to hear"
    Overall

    This book is a wonderful piece for people interested in the medical field. It offers a wonderfully accessible explanation of prion diseases combined with a human touch and a fabulous narrator voice. Highly recommended!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Across the Nightingale Floor to be better than the print version?

    The accents of the narrators enrich the story. I would rate the book and the reading as equal.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Across the Nightingale Floor?

    The story of Kaede is rich with pathos,and powerfully memorable.


    What about Kevin Gray and Aiko Nakasone ’s performance did you like?

    Their accents and deep emotion. Their performance feels like watching the story on stage.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wept repeatedly.


    Any additional comments?

    The entire series is a wonderful,passionate alternate history, a deep mythos and very real characters. Takeo and Kaede are dear friends of mine.
