So recently my younger sister knows I have narcolepsy and recently made me read her favorite children's book- which is now my new favorite- it's called "The Mysterious Benedict Society" by Trenton Stuart. I bring this up here because, as she gave it to me she said, "This book is the reason I knew what narcolepsy even was." Mr. Benedict, the adult leader of a group of genius orphans, is narcoleptic (as said in the book, he never calls himself a PWN). Initially I thought it was being played for laughs, but then I liked it, because though he would fall asleep at very inopportune times, it made his two assistants very worried about him and he himself mentions how it's something to live with, that he just deals with. (He's also probably the most intelligent person in the book.) His sleep attacks, though, seem more like a cataplectic sleepiness attack-as in, he laughs too hard and he falls asleep. I was wondering what you guys' take on this book series' depiction of narcolepsy was, or if you guys had read it.
