Starfish Sky is a work of non-fiction in the memoir subgenre that deals with traumatic brain injury and a motivational new perspective on life. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Timothy Slykhuis. A Canadian cycling enthusiast, Timothy is involved in a very dangerous accident that results in a coma and severe brain injuries that impact his memory and have him struggling to think of even the simplest things for short periods of time. The book chronicles a fascinating and difficult period of recovery, and then the joyous rediscovery of the wonders of life through reawakened eyes.
Author Timothy Slykhuis has crafted a truly inspiring memoir that not only details his unique experience with brain trauma and memory loss, but also lays out what it is that makes us who we are as individual humans, and how we can rebuild what we know to make our lives better, regardless of the traumas we face. The quality of the narrative is also a standout feature of the work, as Slykhuis writes with a highly readable, almost novel-like style of storytelling that allows readers to easily imagine the scenes, but he’s also remarkably raw and earnest through the periods of introspection and struggles that he feels. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Starfish Sky to readers from all walks of life, regardless of your experience, as this is a unique opportunity to step into the shoes of another, and in turn reimagine your own life with a renewed vision of hope and possibility.
