I am distracted from the very fine book by the shaky, unsure, weirdly paced narration. I was hoping to wait it out (everybody has a bad day I guess) but it was persistent. Appalling. I have never written a negative review before but this audio download was expensive and was really ruined for me by the narration.
I also loved this book and wanted to note that the version I downloaded in 2010 has a new narrator (Mr. Cohen only read the intro). This is a brave, honest book. My dearest friend who has lived with MS for 20 years also loved it, and found it to be incredibly inspiring, as did I. It's about living fully with a chronic illness, but also so much more. It's about life, choices, careers, marriage, so many of the things which make a truly compelling memoir. I rarely take the time to recommend a book (and I've downloaded hundreds) but this one moved me deeply.
