I will reread this book because I know how hard it is to mentally ill. It is a sad book but a must read for someone who has
mental, a parent of someone who has mental illness or a person working in the field.
Wow. First of all, this is a super quick and easy read. I blew through the book in two days and probably could have done it in one, but I forced myself to put it down so I could savor the experience.
This is a very brave debut novel. Just in terms of the narrative style and structure. The narrator/protagonist is a man struggling with severe mental illness and a traumatic childhood experience. So the novel is this protagonist documenting his story, consequently the text includes varying typeface, drawings, etc to depict the way this narrator sees and expresses his world. Like I said, it's a very brave style for a debut novel, but it creates such an authentic voice.
It's a heartbreaking story and I can't reveal much more without spoiling it. The ending is perhaps a tad "deflated" after the suspense of the story, but it does make perfect sense for the character.
Overall, very satisfying read.
Its unconventional biography that shows that the distinction between illness and clear consciousness is very thin. You could be a one with many sides even not typical for the ordinaries, but nobody could know how deep you are , how strong could be your feelings to the points of love , pain, blaming yourself for the what you have done.
The end of the story, its final act confirms that how less you need just to take a one more revival step, just to move forward from the darkest trunk of your mental derangement.
I ve enjoyed it greatly, while been reading! Thank you!
It is a weird journey, one that you won't forget for a long time because in a way it makes you almost experience and at least understand what it can be, its impact on a young life. There is no sadness, no pity, just the experience of a kind of life you probably do not know and someone to guide you into it.
For a first book it's a coup de maître.
