Eventually known as encephalitis lethargica, or sleeping sickness, it spread worldwide, leaving millions dead or locked in institutions. Then, in , it disappeared as suddenly as it arrived. Asleep , set in s and '30s New York, follows a group of neurologists through hospitals and asylums as they try to solve this epidemic and treat its victims-who learned the worst fate was not dying of it, but surviving it.
I just finished listening to the audio version of this book and came away quite a bit more pleased with it than I was with the text version. The narrator read well, with good pacing, tone and few An interesting examination of both the time period and the disease, but it was strange reading a medical mystery where no answers were ever given and every case study ended in tragedy. I think possibly a different narrative structure might have suited this book better.
