Book Review: The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating, by Pat Fero

The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating
by Elisabeth Tova Bailey


I am a CFS patient and my book, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating, was just published. My book recounts one bedridden year during which time I watched a wild woodland snail which resided in a terrarium at my bedside. The snail became my companion and got me through a very tough year. For more information about my book please see my website:

With all best wishes, Elisabeth Tova Bailey

Here's what Dr. Bell has to say about The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating:

"While it seems trite to say, this book really is a triumph of the human spirit. If you thought you understood something about ME/CFS, read this and it is possible you will realize that you understood very little. I learned huge amounts and want to give a copy of it to the family of every patient I have ever had. The writing is magnificent."
