I received this as part of the Goodreads First Reads program.

I don't know very much about paranoid schizophrenia, and I certainly don't know enough about it to have enjoyed this book. I can see this as being really powerful for those who are closely invloved with the disorder, whether professionally or personally. But I had a hard time following Will's thought process and some parts had me feeling uncomfortable. Granted, if it's truthful writing then that is probably the point, but that didn't mean I liked it.
