Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Susannah Cahalan

Narrated By: Heather Henderson

Publisher: HighBridge Company

Date: November 2012

Duration: 7 hours 50 minutes

Summary:

An award-winning memoir and instant New York Times bestseller that goes far beyond its riveting medical mystery, Brain on Fire is the powerful account of one woman's struggle to recapture her identity.

When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she'd gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened?

In a swift and breathtaking narrative, Susannah tells the astonishing true story of her descent into madness, her family's inspiring faith in her, and the lifesaving diagnosis that nearly didn't happen. 'A fascinating look at the disease that . . . could have cost this vibrant, vital young woman her life' (People), Brain on Fire is an unforgettable exploration of memory and identity, faith and love, and a profoundly compelling tale of survival and perseverance that is destined to become a classic.

    Terrifying yet fascinating. The narration was very well done. My daughter recommended this book and I couldn't put it down.

    Worst narration I think I've ever heard. Sounds like a 50 year-old woman who's has a few too many glasses of Chardonnay. I much prefer audio books to print but I can't stomach this any longer.

  • Pam Schuer

    What an amazing story. It reads like fiction, but is the true story of one woman's struggle to get a proper diagnosis and recovery from an autoimmune neurological disease. Filled with scientific terms but easily accessible to the everyday reader, Brain on Fire was a truly inspiring story. Readers of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Left Neglected will enjoy this book.
