The introduction pretty much described the entirety of the book, so I listened for about half of it and lost interest because I already knew the progression of the story. I would have been much more into it without that intro.
While I didn't love the narration, I did really love the writing. It's amazing to experience the miracle that someone has not only gone through this terrible brain illness, but has come back to herself enough to tell the story and to tell it well. It's quite fortunate for the illness itself to have been experienced by a reporter. It's a view all its own.
More about the narration: There were a lot of words that the narrator pronounced in a really odd way. Odd enough to pull me out of the story. As the book went on, I got a real sense for the author and also a sense that the narrator wasn't on target with it.
This was a wonderful, amazing, insightful, and informative book, but I will pause when seeing this narrator attached to another book.
