Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It`s staggering to think that physicians actually believed that any of these cures would actually work!

Started off well, but got a bit boring after a while. Horrifying to think what the poor patients were put through up until only a few decades ago.

A traditional gothic story. Well written and riveting, a great read for lovers of creepy `fireside` tales. Spine-tingling and interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating!!, 16 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best books I have read on Victorian London life. Explained many things I never knew before. Very varied and witty,
A few typos but nothing to complain about.
If you are interested in the poor of Victorian London you MUST read this book.


Narcolepsy: A Funny Disorder That's No Laughing Matter
Narcolepsy: A Funny Disorder That's No Laughing Matter
by Marguerite J. Utley
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on Narcolepsy, 22 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very informative and comprehensive look at the enigma that is Narcolepsy. I have learned more from this book than by talking to many specialists, although they may know the symptoms, they do not fully understand the impact this disorder has on someone`s life. Thoroughly recommended.
