Review: Andrew's Brain By: E.L. Doctorow

Andrew's BrainAndrew's Brain by E.L. Doctorow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Enter the mind of a cognitive scientist. A man who has observed the life he has lived and those he has affected, sometimes oblivious to the damage he has inadvertently caused more often than not. Written as therapy lessons and we, the reader, as interlopers into the stream of consciousness into Andrew's brain. At times so painful and others laughable, all both fantastical and human at the same time.
Andrew might be flawed, but his story shows the flaws of the world and makes one ask just who the Pretender really is.
Looking for a book to lose yourself within in the pages, the writing so beautiful - almost poetic, something just off but it makes it even more profound... this is it.
