I was intrigued because this didn't seem to be one of his usual thriller-type books. After reading the blurb just inside the cover -- "One morning ... just before my fifth birthday, I woke up as a normal, healthy boy. By that afternoon, I had as irresistible urge to shake my head -- continually -- and the course of my life changed in ways few people had ever seen or could begin to understand" -- I was hooked.
