Chosen as a bookclub read. I accidentally left it at work one day and did not even make an effort to go back and get it. I was hoping someone would steal it so I would have a good excuse not to finish it. Decided to not finish it anyway and here's why.
Once again, found myself skimming about 70% of the book. Although Jill's condition is fascinating I think it would best be covered in a medical journal, magazine article, or TV interview. She would often give many examples of her memory when only 1-2 would suffice--it was almost as if it was "filler". Although some of different memory processes were discussed I was long past caring. I described this to friends as "the sound of one hand clapping."
