Almost a year later and have read a couple of books in the middle. I find myself wanting to read more of Note of Madness so I searched for similar books. To my surprise I found out that there was a second book, the continuation of the main plot and I was like a dog with two tails so I ordered straight away and counted the days and hours for it to arrive. When it finally came, I started reading it straight away finishing my working day on Friday, and read it non stop until I finished it at Saturday midday. It had been a while since I devoured a book in less than 24 hours. I loved it!
This time, it goes deeper on the daily life, dealing with the medication and trying to have a “normal” life, the struggle, the equilibrium and the breakdown. Again, I think it has a really human approach, without judging and deepening in the psychological perspective, with thoughts, ideas, feelings, etc. So again, I totally recommend this book.
The author has some other books more popular than these as I have noticed online, but their topics are quite hard and intense so it’s not suitable for everybody. I might give Hurt a try when the price comes down, in the meanwhile I will try with “The bell jar” by Sylvia Plath. We’ll see how it goes.
