From 1985 to 1995 an estimated 40,000 Americans, most of them women, were told they suffered from multiple personality disorder. The author of this book is one of those people. She enter ...more
From the introduction on, my desire to keep an open mind was at war with skepticism. On the one hand, multiple personality is an unusual topic, to say the least, and even stranger than Sybil, this book was written by the personalities themselves--the "Troops for Truddi Chase" as they call themselves. Naturally one would not expect it to read like any ordinary book. On the other hand, a label that says "NF" with some official-lo...more
I also found the book hard to read in places because of the way it was written (supposedly) from a first person na ...more
It is not the writing that is difficult to read it is witnessing, even through the written word, the experience of the writer.
It is a book that will always have a place of honor on my bookshelves because it is a book of true heroism and filled with hope.
Reading this book brought me to understand ...more
I really don't know if I can believe it or not....If it's true, then it's definitely one of the most harrowing and disturbing stories I have ever read, and if it's not, it's some damned convincing writing.
It confused me, it scared me, it intrigued me and it saddened me. It is an unbelievable non fiction account that literally makes me questions a time or two if it can really be true. It portrays the incredible strength of the human mind in the face of adversity and even the weaknesses of it.
The reader walks along with 'the woman' and her doctor getting a first hand telling of moment to moment life with multiple personalities and attempting to extract know ...more
It's both dark and fascinating, especially if you've had any interest in child psychology or human nature, like I have... And I'll freely admit being fascinated with the ways the human mind can react to stress and abuse.
The book is not necessarily an easy one to read, I should say that upfront. Previously known as multiple personality disorder, Dis ...more
I was horrified at what I learned this poor little girl suffered but she endured with the mental scars to prove it. People scoff at multiple personality disorder but it is real. This is a very creative way to survive multiple traumas endured at an early age.
Truddi Chase passed awa ...more
A more modern take on the "Sybil" acount of Multiple Personality Disorder. This book moves more quickly and is a bit more graphic than "Sybil" as it was written more recently. Although, it may not make you a firm believer in the disorder it will certainly make you think twice before doubting the possibility that it does exist.
I admit, the last few pages I just skimmed through - I just wanted to be done with it, but needed the closure of the end.
I think it's important to know that the terminology is outdated. It's better read as a historical document and one persons personal account than as source of knowledge about DID. A lot has happened in Psychiatry/Psychology since the 80es.
Other than that, I find it difficult to have an opinion on this book. It's difficult to read, triggering and sometimes outrigh ...more
I had been fascinated by Sybil years ago, reading that book two or three times. AfterI saw Truddi Chase on a television show I read the book. This was a harder book to read. Sybil was fascinating, but after reading When Rabbit Howls, I decided to put away my fascination with multiple personalities.
When rabbit howls is about Truddi Chase and her experience during therapy. She has multiple personality disorder, now known as DID- Dissociative Identity Disorder. Troops are the multiple personalities that protect Truddi Chase. The hardest parts of the book for me, were the details of sexual abuse inflicted by her stepfather and mother. As the child is abused by her parents repeatedly, her mind scrambles to save her and creates a ...more
Additionally, there is a bloat in the middle where it seems as if the reader gets the same chapter repeated about six or seven times. I realize therapy is a process, but an editor should have tightened that up.
In the end, MPD/ DID naysa ...more
secondly, the author claims to have felt similar to "Sybil", a well known case of "multiple personality" that has been thoroughly debunked. similarity to a fictional story doesn't make your story more true.
third, I do not believe a petite woman who was "skin and bones" (her descript ...more

In the early 1980s, Chase began therapy to address feelings of extreme fear and distress which she thought might be related to the fact that her stepfather had "fondled" her. What she uncovered with Dr. Robert Phillips was a snakepit of sexua ...more
