Journalist Maureen Seaberg introduces listeners to a range of synesthetes who experience combinations of senses, such as hearing colors, as well as people with seemingly superhuman abilities like a woman who can smell Parkinson's disease. Seaberg's expertise in human senses is hard-won. She herself has an extraordinary sensory palette that took her years to understand and harness. Her firsthand insights are among the most compelling sections of this audiobook, and they are where Cindy Kay's narration is most approachable and authentic. Kay's delivery is less authoritative in the more science-heavy passages, although these benefit from human stories. This audiobook is a tightly written and fascinating treat for the ear--and the mind. D.B. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
