This book is one that really opened my eyes to mental health issues. I loved it. Really want to reread it. ( )

This book helped me put a lot of things in perspective for me during a rather difficult time personally. I read it on a whim and was not despointed in the slightness. I will always recommend reading it to anyone who wants to understand how it feels to struggle with deep chronic depression. ( )

This author really nailed the idea of mental illness and depression and how it can happen to people who - on the surface - have such easy lives. I loved his descriptions of Tentacles and Anchors. It all felt very real. I wish I had read this in high school, it might have helped me out of my own darkness. Great read. ( )

This book was too long. That really was my main problem with it. What the author wrote in the first 200 pages could have easily been condensed into about 50, 70 pages tops. I almost gave up. I actually did stop twice, but my friend who recommended it to me kept asking how I liked it and I got bored so I picked it up again. I'm glad I did because it did in fact get better once Craig actually gets into the mental hospital.

Don't be fooled, while its a relatively good novel this is a sort of typical teen angst novel. It first i just thought Craig was a pussy. There really was nothing wrong with the kid, he was just depressed and stressed out because of his fancy school. I get it, depression just happens, I am not trying to belittle it, but in Craig's specific case I kinda just wanted to say "fucking be a man, tell your parents the school is too much and switch to a normal one. You're fine, chill the fuck out."

At other times I liked him, I felt his depression, and it felt valid. And I understood him and what he was going through.

I liked the characters, I liked that it was not a happy little well I'm all better now! kind of thing. It ended realistically. Craig, while at times annoying, was a good character, so were the others in the hospital. I also really liked the parents, which in teen novels is pretty rare.

All in all, I am glad I read it, and I saw the movie and enjoyed that too, but its not one I will read again. And I doubt I'll pick up any of the other books by the author. ( )

For a story about teenage depression and suicide this novel is quite like the title says; it's kind of a funny story. The protagonis is brutally honest in telling his own story, which gives the whole narrative a believable tone. Not all cases on teenagers who want to kill themselves are wrapped up quite this easily, but it seems to be aimed at giving hope to those who suffer from mental illness through the carefully hidden "steps" to recovery/management. What the novel assumes though - in a rather unrealistic way - is that people who suffer from depression would be able to initiate the recovery process. Not being able to reach out (even through removed mediums such as the internet or phone) is a dominant theme in depression from what I understand, so it would have been slightly more realistic to have built this theme in as well.

To my mom. You knew you'd get one sooner or later, and seeing as they're so hard to do, I figured we'd better make it sooner. I love you.
