4.0 out of 5 stars fascinating,sensitive, 1 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Awakenings (Kindle Edition)
I saw the film of this with robin Williams' excellent and sensitive portrayal of the doctor/author. I also enjoyed this book on my new kindle fire. There are a lot of medical terms in his book, I was not expecting this so I was very pleased to be able to instantly refer to my on -screen dictionary at click of a button on my kindle. He is a very sensitive author and doctor and I feel quite strongly for the plight the patients found themselves in after contracting the sleeping sickness. The mind and the chemicals within us are a fascination to me. Are we just a bunch of chemicals, our personalities and very being controlled by chemicals/hormones within us? Fascinating subject matter.

It is amazing how the right medication managed to awaken these patients who had been effectively asleep for decades.
