There were occasions when the journalistic style grated, as the author sensationalised her experiences of this bizarre and frightening illness - hence the four stars. Overall a gripping and emotionally intense roller coaster ride of a book.
As someone who has been bounced with different diagnosis it's great to hear of a positive result and even better to hear of recovery. It's also scary how easy a wrong diagnosis can be pounced upon and something so serious can be missed and misunderstood
