Interesting story. ( )

It was shocking to me that a memoir about having a singularly unique neurological condition could be so horrifically boring. If you are interested in the boring life story of a privileged but vapid girl, go ahead, but if you want to hear about the science of memory, avoid this book. ( )

The science aspect of this was much more interesting to me than the memoir aspect of it; and, as the subtitle indicates, it's really more of a memoir than a science book.

I liked these two quotes:

"It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment?" -Vita Sackville-West, Twelve Days

"The brain is wider than the sky." -Emily Dickinson ( )

Biography of Jill Price and the perks and downfalls of having an autobiographical superior memory. She remembers everything that happened, including all the good, mundane or bad. Each time she remembers it - it is like it happens again. Very interesting at the beginning, but began to grow dull as the story wore on. Other titles are out there with people with this condition including Marilu Henner (Elaine Nardo from the TV series Taxi.) Her book is titled: Total Memory Makeover: Uncover Your Past, Take Charge of Your Future. ( )

Interesting in some areas, but at times the book was hard to follow. Given the facts that the author disclosed made it confusing overall. The thought of never forgetting things that have happened in your lifetime is intriguing. But the fact is that we all remember what we want to remember and forget what we want to forget. ( )
