Hallucinations recurred over a 6-month period and then subsided. Monitoring in both cases failed to capture an episode. Conclusions: We describe 2 patients who experienced recurrent visual hallucinations following hemispherectomy that caused significant morbidity before subsiding 3—6 months later. Whether these represented focal seizures, a Charles Bonnet-like syndrome, or were unrelated to hemispherectomy is not clear. However, clinicians should be aware of this phenomenon.
Even though symptoms were florid, they were transient in both patients. Disclosure: Dr. Sachdev has nothing to disclose. Vanags has nothing to disclose. Arehart has nothing to disclose. Grant has nothing to disclose. Mikati has nothing to disclose.

Apr 16, Mary rated it really liked it Shelves: first-reads. This was a compulsively readable story that takes you down some interesting rabbit trails. The plot has many threads, but this is the type of book that will take a couple of readings to pick up on some of the more subtle clues. The end result was a book that has an ending that hits you between the eyes and you wonder what just happened.
Great story for those enjoying a good mystery. Reader received a complimentary copy from Good Reads First Reads. View 1 comment.

Nov 12, Tim Hicks rated it it was ok Shelves: mystery , fantasy. I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy, so I am comfortable away from everyday reality. I didn't worry about Lee's idiocy, which starts early with flying to Prague empty-handed. I didn't scoff at Vera sitting in a coffee shop every day for six months. I was patient when this book posited a magic clock, and things happened that didn't make sense.
I sat through the travelogue on Prague, which I'm sure will be useful because I hope to visit there soon. I waded through the mystical handwaving a I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy, so I am comfortable away from everyday reality. I waded through the mystical handwaving about Kelley, in which very little actually happened.
I am patiently read the English what is broke from the ridiculous Soros. I sat through the mysterious little girl with no teeth. Despite all the doubts I had been accumulating, I was sure the book was building to a marvellous confrontation. Then I got to the end, and all that remained was, "there go four hours of my life that I'll never get back. And if you do, don't blame me if at the end you hear the author laughing at you. Because you know why?
As they say in Newfoundland, "C'mere till I tells ya. I'm sure the lit'ry crowd will smile condescendingly ask me gnomically, "Is anything real? Did I really read the book? Does the book really exist? I'm going back to SF where the authors are constrained by requirements of credibility. Dec 21, Stacia rated it liked it Shelves: , europe. Maybe my brain needs to be sharper or I need to pay better attention when reading, but I may need someone to explain it to me just like I felt after watching the movie Memento years ago. I'm mostly on track, I think, but I'm also a bit confused.
I'm ok with the fantastical, the strange, the unexpected, things being off or different. And there Maybe my brain needs to be sharper or I need to pay better attention when reading, but I may need someone to explain it to me just like I felt after watching the movie Memento years ago. And there were definitely some holes or gaps in the story.
I think. Certainly it is interesting as it rambles around Prague, but a few later chapters were written in different fonts, some of which were not the easiest to read. It was unexpected which I liked , but got confusing at times too.senjouin-kikishiro.com/images/bezuwuwy/3738.php

I'm lazy so I'd rather just have someone else give me the final synopsis. In the end, I think the premise was better than the actual execution, but it was still a decent, mind-bending read.

Isaac Adamson starts his latest book off with a refresher course in the definition of the word "complication', which also happens to be the title of the book.
It is also a guidepost for the reader, for in this novel, set mostly in Prague, in various points of time, every single definition comes into play. The main story line has Lee Holloway, a rather unassuming fellow, who, when cleaning out the detritus of his father's estate, finds a letter which indicates that the disappearance of Isaac Adamson starts his latest book off with a refresher course in the definition of the word "complication', which also happens to be the title of the book. The main story line has Lee Holloway, a rather unassuming fellow, who, when cleaning out the detritus of his father's estate, finds a letter which indicates that the disappearance of Lee's younger brother Paul, in the Prague floods five years earlier, may have more mystery involved.
Side note: Two years after the death of my mother, I'm still clearing her estate and the detritus of her life. That Lee could dispose of just about everything so easily made me quite jealous. From here the tale becomes curiouser and curiouser, and like Alice down the rabbit hole, things are not always what they seem.
There's the basic story line of Lee and Vera, which takes more twists and turns than a Gordian knot, Communist era spies and interrogations, Rumpelstiltskin or a gangster bearing the same name , alchemy, black magic complete with John Dee and Edward Kelly , and the eve of the Nazi invasion of Prague, all centered around The Rudolf Complication, a fabled timepiece, built for the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II, which runs both backwards and forwards, and grants eternal life.
It's a lot of threads to keep straight, but somehow it all works without derailing the reader's brain. The plot movements are like clockwork -- if the timepiece is The Rudolf Complication, that is, filled with fascinating twists, side-bits, and palindromes. There were moments in the book that just grabbed me for the detail or the phrasing. In hindsight, those moments were ones that gave me clues to unraveling some of the plot, thought I was not able to piece it all together to the end.
And what an end. Complication is fascinating, entertaining, quirky, enlightening, and surprising. This book keeps the reader on all ten toes until the very end.

It had a smoothe start and I found myself drawn in by the main character. Lee Holloway seemed like your average guy who followed a trail left by his deceased brother and ends up way in over his head.
Still he has a determination about him that makes him intruiging.

While investigating the true circumstances of his brother's death, he tends to make decisions that seem off. You can make a case that the reason for this is explained at the end, but you spend most of the time screaming at Lee to go to the police, get some help, or something to that effect.
