The British narrator Fenella Fudge delivers this audiobook with dramatic flair that is captivating on its own merits while never failing to connect with the deepest parts of the author's message. Fudge's tonal range and phrasing artistry are a joy to hear performing this beautiful poetic writing. Focusing on the boundary between human consciousness and our physical bodies, this audiobook is a sneaky-smart, highly informative kaleidoscope of fascinating mental health stories. They come across like a slow-moving river but provoke strong currents in the listener's thoughts and assumptions about being human. The author's vast knowledge of these matters is juxtaposed with a crisis in her own family--her mother's cognitive decline and its impact on how the philosopher/historian comes to grips with her mother's rapidly disintegrating identity.
