As the title suggests, this audiobook depicts Khakpour's lifelong struggle with chronic illness and the complications that come along with it. Narrator Yetta Gottesman does an excellent job voicing a complex story that follows the lead of memory rather than chronology. Her voice inspires empathy, and her performance of dialogue is organic and easy to follow. Understandably, the memoir can be exhausting: Khakpour's journey through the mysteries of Lyme disease, the nuances of the medical system, strained personal relationships, and the side effects of her illness can weigh heavily on the listener. Gottesman's compassionate influence, though, reminds us that our fatigue is but a fraction of what the author endures daily. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
