It reads so well and not one part seems to rediculous. I could truly feel the feelings of Charlotte throughout the book
Its a hard read I suffer with depression and a long list of things as well this book can be a trigger so make sure you are in a good head space before you decide to read it Espically if you are a self harmer Espically if you're a cutter.
The book had me laughing at points and crying at others. One of the saddest parts of the books were the authors notes. I normally never read them for some reason I did this time powerfil.
So if u know anyone in your life suffering with depression of some sort this is a fantastic and insightful well written book. Give u a clearer understanding.
Well deserved 5 stars
Part of the reason was certainly the writing style - short, choppy paragraph chapters don't really work for me. I want a little more meat on the bones. Part of it though was despite the author trying to cover a huge range of issues - abuse, suicide, self harm, homelessness, drugs, addiction in one package - it doesn't go anywhere fast. It starts well, the hospitalisation really caught me. But somewhere in the middle it flounders and then it takes another hundred pages to get interesting again.
That said, I applaud the author for writing this. It is honest and raw and that's something we could do with more of in relation to mental health. She certainly pulled me along with her characters when the book got going, and her writing is powerful and intense. Others have commented that the secondary characters aren't fleshed out, but actually I think that's part of the realism. When you are struggling that much just to survive, you are selfish and self focussed. Each day is about you, not about the struggles going on around you. Is that right? No. Healthy? No. But it's definitely true.
I'd recommend this book to anyone with a passing interest in mental health. It wasn't really to my taste, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate what the author has done.
The only aspect I didn’t like was the twist with Ellis… why the heck is she alive? That’s just thrown in at the end like it’s nothing! Kathleen, sweetie, write a sequel or take it out because I am livid!!
Once I got into this book I did really enjoy the way it was written and became invested in Charlie’s life, but to be honest I would probably refrain from recommending this book to a friend just because of how hard it is to read because there are so many heavy topics (suicide, self harm, drug addiction, etc) which are often discussed in depth.
The end of the book could not have brought everything together in a better way but I honestly did almost give up reading at around 3/4 of the way through because of how brutal and upsetting the story line got.
If you have the time and aren’t too sensitive to any of the topics mentioned before then I would say to give it a try because these are very real and important issues to read about and discuss but just don’t expect it to be an easy read because it’s not.
I cam by this book while researching the self-harm topic for a book I am writing. I have never had contact with people with this problems, so I want to make sure I am sensible and realistic with the matter.
This is a book of fiction, and the characters aren't real, but the issues treated here are. The feelings, the thinking the problems... my heart bled for Charlie, specially the first third of the book.
Such beautiful book to give a voice to the people who have suffered or know someone who went through this. Or to the others like me, to understand the problem better.
It must have been very hard to write this book, so I raise my hat to th writer, and I wish her that she is in a better place than she had been, and that finding your voice in any type of art, like writing, is one of the most beautiful things in the world. You are a great writer. Great with words. Better at transmitting feelings and make the readers feel them.
