Review From User :
Magnus is a New York City neurologist. He's had three women in his life who have had a profound effect on him - his mother, Margaret, who is a pianist who has finally found fame; his fiancÃ© whose time with him is far too short and one of his patients who is comatose. The author expertly weaves the stories of these three women into a compelling and masterful book.
The gorgeously told love story between Magnus and Malena touched my heart and then broke it. Their relationship is brought so vividly to life. The author's delving into the relationship between Magnus and his parents is told meticulously and expertly and I could feel his confusion and longings so clearly. I found the medical studies concerning Magnus' patient to be fascinating and suspenseful. In each area of Magnus' world, the author brings us his powerful and insightful interpretation.
I'm looking forward to reading more of his work. Mr. Olafsson is the Vice President of Time Warner and is best known for his introduction of PlayStation while working at Sony. I wish he'd devote all of his time to writing but there are a few past books of his already published that I'll be getting soon.
Most highly recommended.
This book was given to me by the publisher in return for an honest review.
