    In 2009, Susannah Cahalan woke up in a strange hospital room strapped to a bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. Her medical records - from a month-long hospital stay of which she had no memory - reported psychosis, violence, and dangerous instability. Yet, only weeks earlier she had been a healthy, ambitious twenty-four-year-old, six months into her first serious relationship and a sparkling career as a cub reporter

    Brian Quaranta says: "For those interested in neurology & psychology"
    "Highly recommend"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Brain on Fire the most enjoyable?

    A year and a half ago I was suddenly stricken with a severe headache and confusion and then hospital stay. It has been a never ending battle since that time. I purchased the audio version of this book because I can only read short amounts of text before pain rips through my head. I listened straight through and cried for two days. The emotion one feels while hearing someone explain what happens when our brain betrays us is inexplicable. And unable to be contained.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Heather Henderson’s performances?

    I did not like the narrator and did not feel that she portrayed the voice of a twenty-something year old. At times it felt as though she was teacher reading to a class of kindergarteners. I would probably avoid any books which she narrated. I loved this book and it was difficult at times to get past the narrators voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this story very much. So happy Susannah found doctors willing to listen and take an interest in her case.
