I'm not sure how I feel about this book. I think it did a good job of providing a chronological view of her struggle with mental illness, but it felt too much like a daily diary. 'I did this on this day, on this day I was here.' Etc.
Plus, she constantly referred to writing this book, in the book. Sort of a trippy third person view. Similar to a painter painting a painting of a painter painting a painting. Head starts spinning.
