This is truly a gripping novel. It delves into the consciousness of the unconscious. It captures the fear which may just be one of the worst fears imaginable. The idea that a person can be caught in their bodies, unable to speak or to have any senses at all, but to be able to hear everything. What would you do? Better yet, what would you hear? A captivating book that I could not put down until I had inhaled it completely.
