Excellent writing style, with dry humour and intelligent comments, and Welch comes across as being a very balanced writer who doesn't try to justify the stupidity which led to his misadventure. Reading his work gives a clever and insightful look into the mind of someone suffering from psychosis, and documents his descent into it very well indeed.

The author originally posted this story online, in full. I was fascinated to read it. Seeing it in eBook form is great.

I'm writing this review under the assumption that this book is either the same as or very similar to that which the author posted in installments on his website under the title "The Episode." I don't own a Kindle, but upon seeing that this work had not been reviewed yet, I decided I needed to give it the attention it deserves. This is a story about life, and what I believe is a true look at life from an entirely warped perspective. It offers the fascinating first-hand perspective of a sane person reflecting on his own experiences as an insane person. Please know that I mean insane in the most literal, definitive sense, as this story provided me with a new and rich understanding of the term.

While the events that took in the story place may be the result of carelessness, the author is no fool. Without reading it, some would find it easy to dismiss this as the work of a drug addled dilettante. I assure you it is not. The writing is somewhere between David Foster Wallace (I hesitated to write that, but I wrote it) and Maddox (of "The Best Page in the Universe"). It is both serious and hilarious. It's nuanced and chaotic. It is extremely entertaining.

This book is impossible to put down once you start. I think it took me all of 4 subway trips to finish it, and not because it's simple, easy or light. In fact, it's pretty heavy at times. But it's also funny, friendly and wildly entertaining. Highly recommended.

Speaking as someone who's never downed a substance more mind-altering than a Tylenol 3, I found Peter Welch's account of his misstep into madness both revelatory and gripping. Descriptions of his disrupted thought processes and behaviors throughout the fateful LSD trip and his subsequent psychosis were extraordinarily well rendered and somewhat disturbing, despite Mr. Wlelch's generous use of humorous asides and cleverly conceived phrases.

I celebrate his recovery and encourage him to continue writing. He certainly has the wit, as well as the writing skill to become a very successful author. Read this and see for yourself!

I bought this book because 1)I read an essay yesterday by Peter Welch which was one of the greatest things I had ever read and felt the need to suppot the author with more than a micro donation. 2)I thought it would be as amusing as what I had just read 3)It sounded interesting. It is brilliantly written. I am not even done yet and I willing to bet that it will be one of my favorite reads ever and that I will not have to chuck it across the room when I am done as I have been known to do with a bad book when I am done (I have to be careful as my Galaxy Tab would not fair as well as my trade paperback of Sphere by Michael Chrichton did...but I digress). I do have a certain sick feeling about experiencing schadenfreude in regards to the experiences of Mr. Welch. I have been writhing with horror, facination and glee all at the same time. I have alway had an existential fear of losing my grip on reality; This book isn't helping that one bit. I am going to go finish it now.

Update:
Finished it...I did NOT throw it across the room.

I want him to keep writing. He has a website [...] . He recently wrote about Computer Programming in the most entertaining and truthful manner I have ever read.

I backed this project on Kickstarter and read the eBook. I paid $35 for it and don't regret it for a second! Definitely worth a read!

The story that Mr. Welch has woven here is entirely true, which makes some of the events even more distubing. I can't stress how entertaining this story is, you will laugh, you will feel horrible for laughing, and you will laugh again. In the end you may even learn a thing or two, not just about Mr. Welch, but about yourself as well. I highly reccomend you read this book as soon as you can, keeping in mind you will not want to set it down until you have finished, and possibly not even then. I for one, am looking forward to what ever the author writes next.

This journey through Peter's experience with LSD and his following vacation from reality was greatly entertaining. Having played with the psychedelic in my youth it was easy to be in the story. But even if you haven't tripped before, he did a great job at describing it. This is not a book promoting drug use, in fact, if you read it, it will have quite the opposite effect. Sure made me feel lucky that I skated through that phase without some institutionalization.
