Description: This book, as well as the movie, absolutely changed my life. In 1967, at 18 years old, Susanna Kaysen was hospitalized for depression after attempting suicide. What follows is her 18 month stay in Boston's McLean Hospital, where she is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and eventually learns a lesson about herself that helps her break free from the grasp of her illness. Five stars.

Pros: Made me feel less alone and less crazy
Cons:

Still one of my favourite books and movies, I prefer the movie I think but both are good in their own right. I also related to the characters and stories, and it kind of prepared me for hospitalisation and what to expect (though it's about the 60's) it made me feel less scared about hospital and just coping after etc.

Pros:
Cons:

It was like I had written this book in the early 90's. This is my story almost exactly. Different hospital, different location, but experiences were spot on. The movie had the look, feel and mood of the hospital. It was very accurate in ALL of it's depictions.
