I’m going to tell you about a book I’ve been reading recently. The book is called The Man Who Mistook his Wife for a Hat.
It’s a slightly unusual book and I’m not sure how you would categorise it. In a way it’s a medical case history – or a collection of them. It’s written by a Professor of Neurology I think – he’s certainly not professional author. And it’s just the stories of some of the more unusual patients he’s treated. Each chapter is about a different patient. All of them have something wrong with their brain and think in a strange way. For instance, the character who gave his name to the title of the book cannot distinguish people from objects and actually did think his wife was a hat and tried to put her on his head!
I tend to read the book in the evenings or on the train in the morning. I like to read before I go to bed – I find it relaxing and it’s a quiet time when I can concentrate on what I’m reading. I suppose I read on the train for a different reason – there’s nothing else to do but look out of the window. The only problem is that the carriage is normally pretty noisy with other passengers talking and it’s much harder to concentrate.
This is actually the second time I’m reading the book. I first read it about 3 years ago and I enjoyed it so much I decided to read it again and it wouldn’t surprise me if I read it for a third time too.
Why do I like it so much? There’s plenty of reasons. It’s an intelligent book that makes you think. I enjoy books like that. I also prefer non-fiction to fiction as I think that’s more stimulating and I certainly prefer reading to watching the television.
