Quite a Concept
Sick is quite a unique concept. I find it hard to categorize, and probably can't, without spoiling too much of it. The publisher's summary of the book probably does a pretty good job of covering it, so I won't just reiterate that. However, I'll say that it does go heavily into the area of spontaneous regeneration, an idea I do think about sometimes. I realize that modern medicine does mock stuff like that, but I still can't help but thinks the scientifically accepted fact that every cell in a person's body has enough information stored in it to, given the right conditions, generate a whole person. That is how we get from zygote to person... I also like the lead character, her whole character and job, situation, and life. It felt a unique idea, and overall well executed.
When I saw the opportunity to get a free review copy of this from Audiobookblast, I noticed the author, and knew I recognized the name, but I just could not pick from where. I checked audible and saw that he was also the author of The Walking Dead novels. Although I don't have those books (I try to keep away from books centered around the bad guy, as the Governor books likely were), I was always tempted, being a fan of the Walking Dead comics and TV series. This book I believe was written back in the 90s (from mentions in the book, plus looking at the editions at Amazon), and just recently released on kindle and audio. It doesn't feels dated though.
Julia Knippen's narration was enjoyable, and I had no issues distinguishing characters or following the story.. I don't have any other books performed by her in my library, but would definitely have no issues buying other books.

Would you consider the audio edition of Sick to be better than the print version?
Always is, but I only listened...
What other book might you compare Sick to and why?

Have you listened to any of Julia Knippen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have, she is always good! She did a great job with this book..I did not want to put it down!
Who was the most memorable character of Sick and why?
Any additional comments?
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
This was a super unique story....Sarah is an aging dancer, who finds out she has a tumor in her brain, a very rare shaped one...she looks at it and sees it is in the shape of a box, using meditation and wizard of oz imagery she shrinks it, but it opens up something evil in her and before she knows it she is losing time, blacking out and waking up in strange places covered in blood..there is something really odd inside of Sarah...something that has come from repressed memories and horrible experiences...and it has become supernatural....
AWESOME STORY! I RECOMMEND!!! COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!
Thank You Audiobookblast(dot)com
