For those who read 'Wasted' now we find out what the real problem was. Not quite as luminous as 'Wasted' but required reading for those who enjoyed her previous book.

A pretty tough read, prepare if you have any degree of major sensitivity to do a lot of wincing. That said emotional issues and mental illness are never pretty, so I sort of expected her stories to be exactly as they were.

Beautifully written. Incredibly intense. I have to admit, as much as I wanted to read this book every minute of every day, I had to stop every once in a while and realise that it was her who was in pain, that the panic I felt was merely her words giving me the sense that I too was in pain.
But maybe that was the point. I have a new understanding for those suffering this degree of pain.

A very up front and graphic look at one person's experience with mental illness.

Certainly not for the faint of heart of for anyone just starting to learn about bipolar or mental illness.

The author's stream of consciousness style may apeal to those looking for a mind's eye look into the world of someone struggling with Bipolar Affective Disorder (Manic Depression).

Violence: vivid in your face imagery of self-destructive and self-harming behaviour
