I bailed. Didn't like the narrator's voice. Strange story about a man with multiple personality disorder. Too complicated for summer reading.

Much better than Sybil. Makes me want to marathon The United States of Tara. ( )

What a great story! The main character is Andrew, a man suffering from multiple-personality disorder. Andrew meets a new co-worker named Penny and discovers she also has MPD, but is only partially aware of it. When several of her souls ask him for help, he reluctantly agrees. I loved the subtitle "A Romance of Souls". The relationships and camaraderie of the personalities in Andrew’s head were entertaining to read about. Highly recommended.

Really unusual. A fascinating story and trip into the mind of multiple personality disorder and the people around them. A real page turner. Highly recommended. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 006095485X, Paperback)

Andy Gage was born in 1965 and murdered not long after by his stepfather. . . . It was no ordinary murder. Though the torture and abuse that killed him were real, Andy Gage's death wasn't. Only his soul actually died, and when it died, it broke in pieces. Then the pieces became souls in their own right, coinheritors of Andy Gage's life. . . .

While Andy deals with the outside world, more than a hundred other souls share an imaginary house inside Andy's head, struggling to maintain an orderly coexistence: Aaron, the father figure; Adam, the mischievous teenager; Jake, the frightened little boy; Aunt Sam, the artist; Seferis, the defender; and Gideon, who wants to get rid of Andy and the others and run things on his own.

Andy's new coworker, Penny Driver, is also a multiple personality, a fact that Penny is only partially aware of. When several of Penny's other souls ask Andy for help, Andy reluctantly agrees, setting in motion a chain of events that threatens to destroy the stability of the house. Now Andy and Penny must work together to uncover a terrible secret that Andy has been keeping . . . from himself.
