    An electrifying true story of one young woman's nightmarish descent into the hell of schizophrenia and her courageous battle to rejoin the real world, such is the story of Lori Schiller. Once she had it all - a loving family, devoted friends, intelligence, and opportunity. Then at age 15 she began to suffer from symptoms of schizophrenia, hearing voices that began to take over her life. At 23, she committed herself to a private mental institution and spent the next 7 years waging a war against the voices that urged her to kill her family, her doctor, herself. This account of a journey into and out of madness is at once gripping, heartening, and ultimately triumphant.

    Story

    I enjoyed the story, but found many technical difficulties that made it a challenge to get through the book. The recording sounded like it had originally been made on a cassette tape, and that tape had been played numerous times and gotten stretched. The music sounded eerie and weird. I was unable to stop listening and resume where I left off, so I was forced to listen to the entire story up to that point several times. I found no way to fast forward, as the recording jumped to the end of the second chapter and the recording credits.I wouldn't recommend the book for these technical reasons alone.
