A Cry For Help
I can't really say it was an enjoyable read, but as raw description of someone's own mental health problems, it was interesting. At times I felt that the writing could have done with maybe a little editing, and a little polishing. Sometimes repetitions came up from one pargraph to another, which kind of made the flow of the reading a bit heavy going. But then again if it had been done differently it might have taken away from the rawness of the description of the illness. I thought the book was different, honest - one thing that did strike me, having suffered on and off from deep bouts of depression is why didn't you try to seek medical help instead of becoming a petty thief? Coming back to what I was saying about repetitions in your writing, I suppose the whole thing about your illness is the repetition, and maybe that was one way of putting it across to the reader. Peace.
