Interesting and informative story
on April 26, 2011
Trapped is a story of one man's horrifying experience while in a coma after a heart transplant. The writing really drew me in and was clear and flowed well. I learned some things about heart transplants that I didn't know before and really felt for this man's struggle to come to terms with both his experience during his coma and struggle to return to normal after coming out of it only to be paralyzed. I also found it fascinating to read about his personal dilemma over his new heart. Once I finished Trapped, I found myself thinking about his story and rethinking a lot of what I've previously believed about comas and heart transplants.
This was my third Kindle Single. I've found them to be, overall, very informative and well written. For me, they come in handy when I'm strapped for reading time or need a break between books, when I haven't decided what I'll read next. I think Kindle Singles make great lunch break reading.
Actually, I would love to see the author turn this story/essay into a full memoir. I believe it has the potenital be a great, powerful book, since most of the books about heart transplants are novels. I'd love to read a full, true account.
My best to the author in his continuing struggle to regain full health.
