    Story
    (213)

    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?"
    "Sacks is excellent as always"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hallucinations to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely not. Get the print version to avoid having to hear the performer.


    What other book might you compare Hallucinations to and why?

    This title is very similar to other books by Sacks. Lots of interesting topics and patient stories.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    In all ways I can imagine. He tries to "do" various characters and he fails miserably.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is a book I wanted to stop listening to and read instead.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent book - get it in print.
