Winner of the National Book Award for Fiction -- On a winter night on a remote Nebraska road, 27-year-old Mark Schluter flips his truck in a near-fatal accident. His older sister, Karin, returns to nurse Mark back from a traumatic head injury. But when he emerges from a coma, Mark believes that this woman is really an impostor who looks just like his sister. Shattered, Karin contacts the cognitive neurologist Gerald Weber, who eagerly investigates. What he discovers in Mark slowly undermines even his own sense of being. Meanwhile, Mark, armed only with a note left by an anonymous witness, attempts to learn what happened the night of his inexplicable accident.

I found this book long and tedious, though I finished it. I already know about the brain stuff, so that wasn't new. The cranes are new to me, but weren't enough to really grab me. I don't know what the problem was, but I think my main frustrations are with the characters and plot. The characters didn't resonate with me somehow; they didn't feel quite real. The explanation at the end of what happened felt too little and too unclear for such a very long buildup. And then there was the mysterious note that I never understood. Anyway, for me it didn't quite work.
