I love reading more than just about anything else and can't wait to share my views with you.

It's Kind of a Funny Story - Ned Vizzini Following Craig through his mental breakdown was quite an experience. This book is about Craig (the hero) spending a year studying to get into a great school and the realizing that this great school is way to hard for him. Thus pushing him into a downward spiral of depression that ultimately leads him to a 5 day stay in an adult mental ward. This book is written in first person and felt like an authentic tale of depression to me. Plus, I just love reading first person novels from the male perspective. This book has plenty of funny and serious moments and had me refusing to put it down in order to find out what the crazy occupiants of the hospital would do next.
