unsettling submitted by camelsamba on July 31, 2017, 1:12pm I listened to this as an audiobook, and it was hard to listen to for a couple of reasons. It's hard to figure out what is going on initially, even knowing it's about mental illness. If i'd been reading, I would have flipped back and forth a lot at the beginning. Then again, if I'd been reading instead of listening, I might have given up completely. And the subject matter was difficult, unsettling, deep.

There is a section which talks about how hallucinations aren't really what the common understanding of them is. I wish I had audio-bookmarked it so I could track it down again. Had I been reading a print edition, I would have put a sticky flag on those pages...

Reading though other reviews I saw mention of illustrations and an author's note. I'm disappointed that they didn't record the author's note for the BOCD, and I plan to flip through a copy on the library shelf to see the illustrations.

This book will destroy you. Let it. submitted by cekandera on July 20, 2018, 8:30pm I was in a funk for a few days after finishing this. Challenger Deep is such an important and beautiful book.

Kind of boring submitted by JerryYang on July 29, 2018, 10:27am I didn't really get the plot of this book and it was confusing.

its ok submitted by Corgo0828 on August 1, 2018, 3:25pm The book was a little confusing

Beautiful book submitted by timdufresne on August 2, 2018, 4:48pm This sticks with you. It's a fascinating and challenging story, but a powerful portrayal of mental health and the struggles therein.
