Sympathetic symptoms....Part II

Listened to disc 9 of The Worst Hard Time today. Just out of curiosity, have you ever read or listened to a book where you felt so transported in time, you actually experienced sympathetic symptoms? Or, did you ever have a situation like I did last Saturday, when I watched the Packer-Seahawks game, and when I walked outside afterwards, I couldn't believe it wasn't snowing? I would like to hear your stories. The mind is powerful and what we put into it comes out in many different ways.

Shogun is a work of fiction that always affected me strongly. I was actually transported to Japan while reading it. And my body and mind reacted to the situations that the main character was experiencing. Maybe certain writing or situations awaken deep memories within us that makes us have sympathetic reactions. Just like certain smells bring back memories of times, people and places in our past.
