Book Review “The Echo Maker”

I finished reading “The Echo Maker” by Richard Powers, a book I found in an airport book shop. The story centers on a character who has to put his mind-self back together after a very bad car crash. The setting is Nebraska in near current times, with a back story of the crane migration stop-over in late winter on the Platte.

Interesting because it uses a visisting scientist and popular book author to put forth ideas from (I think) current research on our brains and our consciousness. The reader gets to watch the various characters struggle with their self-image with mixed results. Mostly positive ending, but the professor-scientist characters story didn’t feel it had enough closure.
