Too Loud To See Too Bright To Hear

Too Bright to Hear Too Loud to SeeToo Bright to Hear Too Loud to See by Juliann Garey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was incredible!  I could not put it down.  It was disturbing, intriguing and so terribly sad.  I found myself enthralled that one could go on that long with that serious of a bipolar disorder.  I was also saddened by his lost relationship with his daughter.  I think now that I am a parent, the thought of being without my children for any extended length of time or missing any of the important milestones of their lives made it particularly piognant.  Still it is without a doubt one of the most interesting trips inside someones mind.  I was left with one important thought that followed me through the entire novel, I find it hard to believe that the author could write this without experiencing this either as a child of a parent of mental illness, a spouse, or the as one who struggles with a serious mental illness.  Her insight into bipolar was so much more than I even have after 10+ years of working with mental illness as a counselor.
