My Life, The Theatre, and Other Tragedies by Zadoff

Posted by heather in Reviews & Recommended Books

Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5

[I gave it three and a half stars] because I thought it was cool how it was all about Adam's theatre life, as a techie, and how he tries to save the show and get the girl.

Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks

Posted by heather in Reviews & Recommended Books

I had a hard time getting through this book. Sacks is obviously a very intelligent psychologist and thorough researcher, however, when I picked up this book, I had thought it was a book about the fascinating, "good" powers of music on the brain... Instead, it seemed to be a study in "music gone wrong": people with hearing loss having their lives disrupted by inexplicable and hellish noise, people with perpetual 'ear worms' that threaten to drive them insane, people driven to near physical destruction by the sudden onset of epileptic seizures in response to their most loved music...

I didn't finish this one. As a musician and avid music lover, I found the majority of the stories disheartening (or even frightening!) to read.
