This story of a lonely man who has no one and who manages to halfway function in spite of his illness will have readers cheering for his recovery. The book is chilling, but something everyone should read who wants to understand how this psychosis of the mind can attack a healthy young person and forever change a promising life.
Arthur Thomas Morton writes in a voice that mesmerizes with its honesty and simplifies a complicated disease in a way we can all comprehend. Don't miss the chance to crawl inside his mind. You will be amazed.
Way Out: A True Account of Schizophrenia opened my eyes to what schizophrenia really is. Before, I believed that people who suffer from this mental illness experience multiple personalities but they actually hear voices, are paranoiac, and sometimes have hallucinations. In Eugene’s case, he thought he was becoming a psychic, and that the voices were aliens, celebrities, spies or spirits communicating with him. In my opinion, his way of coping was really interesting: he used acronyms to keep the voices at bay. However, the story was sometimes confusing, as it went back and forth in time. I know the author did this on purpose but I thought a chronological order would have been better to illustrate the slow descent into schizophrenia, starting with the apparition of the first voices, and then the delusions and hallucinations building in intensity. In addition, some parts of the story could have been better developed: for example, when he decided to start seeking treatment. In the end, this was a really interesting account that needed a bit more polishing up.
