The first reader's group received the book-edited section by edited section. Even experiencing Shattered piece by piece I did not lose interest over the year this process took. That is because Shattered will capture you emotionally in a deep way from the very start and it will not let you go. The progression of each chapter that I read kept me riveted. I couldn't wait till the next chapter was completed and arrived in my inbox! It kept me up late at night, as I didn't want to put it down.
I have learned a lot about bipolar and mental illness from reading this book, as I have never known anyone personally with this disorder. I was greatly enlightened. The story Shattered tells touched me very much. It brought me at times to tears but there were also times it made me laugh.
Shattered puts you through the whole gambit of emotions that the author went through. The love for her husband, worry, helplessness, and fear and eventually after a long time battling the problems of her husband's mental illness she finally found a place of peace after so many years of conflict. Readers will see that there is also a strong message of hope and comfort.
It's a must read!
And the message she's delivering is no less compelling. I am forever changed and will look at the issues of mental health through a new and improved lens. I immediately felt compassion for those in my life who are suffering with an insidious (as Dr. Nicholson calls it) brain disease.
I think this book is really for everyone because we all interact with individuals suffering with some form of mental illness. But particularly for those of you who have bi-polar or manic depressives in your life, this book is a must-read. And the good news: once you buy it, you won't be able to put it down.
The main purpose of this book, in my opinion, was a glimpse into the life of a remarkable family, educated, successful, fun to be with, and the how the tragedy of an accident and decline into mental illness affected this family. It is told with clarity, frankness and poignancy that will hopefully bring more attention to the stigma of mental illness.
