    1 thought on “The World I Made for Her

    1. The ending seriously stops Time. I recommend listening to Steve Goodman's version of 'The Water is Wide' when you read the last chapter. This is a book to lend to your friends. It's ok to cry.

    2. Moran gives us a very intimate view of a man confined by tubes, wires, IVs, the label of 'patient' and the haze of drugged days and nights.James, our narrator, is an English/Irish police officer struck down in the prime of life by chicken pox and following infections that have him on a breathing machine, unable to speak.Due to his long residence in the ICU, he becomes friendly with his main day-nurses Bridget and Nuala. Although he flirts with Bridget through looks and mouthing words, it's Nuala [...]

    3. It's a story about a man so ill he can't move, can't speak, can't do anything for himself, and is trapped in a hospital bed. He can only fully live inside his head, and turns the interactions with staff and friends into a fantasy world which he can share with no one else. It is inspired by the author's own illness. The novel is absolutely beautiful, stunning, tragic and mesmerizing. It is a powerful view of the world of the dying, and how one man does his best to engage in the world of the livin [...]

    4. A beautifully written, haunting tale that I didn't want to end. The best book you've never heard of - read it!

    5. Exquisite prose, beautiful characters and a gut wrenching portrayal of entrapment inside ones own failing body.

    6. A unique love story. Who would try to write a story about a bedridden man, (ventilator-dependent) who falls hopelessly in love with his nurse? Moran did, and succeeded. An ending that will take your breath away. The same "patient falling for nurse" theme from "A Farewell to Arms". What's not to like?

    7. A well-written novel about a bedridden man and his nurses. It had a sad ending which I hadn't really expected -- perhaps Moran couldn't figure out a happy one? However, he was amazingy good at imagining life in the ICU. [Reviewed in the "book journal" I kept throughout 1999.]

    8. While hospitalized with a mysterious infection, a patient sees the world through a narrow field of vision. His observations and thoughts made for a good read.

    9. This is one of those books that you think about for years after you've read it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and that ending! I had to go back and read the first part a second time! Wow.

    10. Read for my monthly Literature and Medicine class. I really kind of loved it. It was very different, but I can't find the words to explain

    11. "הים רחב ידיםולא אוכל לעוברו בשחיהאין גם כנפיים שישאוני.לו אך מצאתי ספן כישרונישיובילני אלאהובתיותיפח נשמתי"."העולם שיצרתי בשבילה", תומס מורן, בבל, עמ` 221ג`יימס בלטצ`לי, הוא בלש במשטרת ניו-יורק, שעוסק בפיענוח מקרים הכרוכים באומנות. הוא מאושפז בטיפול נמרץ ונמצא שם כבר שלושה חודש [...]

    12. My only complaint about Moran’s previous book (Man in the Box) was his lack of explication of the interior life of the title character, and his insistence on narrating only from the point of view of the young teens who were the man’s only contact with the world. In this one, he more than overcomes that shortcoming, and renders an interior world more compelling than I could have hoped. The main character in World is a young man in ICU, felled by what started as a “simple” case of chicken [...]

    13. This book has haunted me for over 10 years since reading it. In the time since completing the novel, I myself have become a nurse, and I always wonder what goes on in the minds of those that slip in and out of consciousness. This book is incredibly beautiful, and I can't wait to read it again.

    14. Honest and stunningly sad. The narrative danced away from the border of hopelessness beautifully.
