Overview

On a winter night on a remote Nebraska road, 27-year-old Mark Schluter flips his truck in a near-fatal accident. His older sister, Karin, returns to nurse Mark back from a traumatic head injury. But when he emerges from a coma, Mark believes that this woman is really an impostor who looks just like his sister. Shattered, Karin contacts the cognitive neurologist Gerald Weber, who eagerly investigates. What he discovers in Mark slowly undermines even his own sense of being. Meanwhile, Mark, armed only with a note left by an anonymous witness, attempts to learn what happened the night of his inexplicable accident.

Awful. Not a bad story at first but so boring and tedious to get through all of the author's musings about the brain and the cranes. I finished it because I wanted to know what happened to him and who wrote the note, but frankly by the time I got there I really didn't care anymore.

I found this book tedious to hear and to follow. I don't care for the bouncing between 'stories' to merge them at the end. I am listening to the last couple of cd's and it seems to be taking forever to get to the point.
