    One of the best books I've read

    The exploration of the human mind from the view of 19th century doctors on the edge of some understanding but so far from knowing. It was utterly fascinating with enough back story to keep you engaged with the characters. Not an easy read but worth the effort and time you put into it.

    Worth it

    Book is very thought-provoking. Very happy although there are a couple parts that dragged on. Highly recommend if you are interested in mental health or if you like 'crazy' stories. Most of the time it kept me on my toes.

    Even better than 'Birdsong'

    A hugely erudite, compelling guide to psychiatric thought and the assimilation of evolutionary theory into science, 1870-1920. As good or better than Birdsong, Human Traces is one of the best and most moving novels I have ever read.

    so bored

    Okay I must say I've never been one to give up on a book, but i read 3/4 of this book and couldn't take it anymore. the first chapter was the best. the author has a great vocabulary and writes beautiful passages but this book lacks plot and time passage is hard to follow

    OF HUMAN TRACES

    A WONDERFUL NOVEL OF FAMILIES LIVING ON THE EDGE OF DISCOVERY-BOTH PERSONAL & SCIENTIFIC. READS LIKE AN 'OF HUMAN BONDAGE' AND A 'MAGIC MOUNTAIN'.
