    Have you ever seen something that wasn't really there? Heard someone call your name in an empty house? Sensed someone following you and turned around to find nothing? Hallucinations don't belong wholly to the insane. Much more commonly, they are linked to sensory deprivation, intoxication, illness, or injury. People with migraines may see shimmering arcs of light or tiny, Lilliputian figures of animals and people.

    Alison says: "Sacks at his best, why couldn't he narrate?"
    "A book by oliver Sacks, another way of "seein thin"

    What made the experience of listening to Hallucinations the most enjoyable?

    experiential and neurological meanings.


    What was most disappointing about Oliver Sacks’s story?

    I want to do further research into auditory and other nonvisual hallucinations.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    he uses literature, sight, and "stories."


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?


    a little off as respects inflection
