I bought the book too, but barely even touched it because listening to the narrator was so much more real and entertaining. Loved the book too!

The plot was interesting enough, albeit predictable. I felt that the author tried too hard to make the book relatable by dropping random curse words. as a person who curses a lot, you're doing it wrong..

On the plus side, Sheff did his homework on Schizophrenia (at least from what little I have read in the subject). He kept the internal struggle somewhat grounded rather than making Miles seem completely out there, like many people assume schizophrenics are. Even the triggers Miles experiences are true to the disease.

The narration was well-done. the voice is exactly how I expected the protagonist to sound. Good choice there!
