Very well read and easy to listen to while driving. The book was not exactly what I was expecting. If you have any experience with manic depression, this book would be of interest.

I'm almost finished with this book so thought I'd review it now, since Paperbackswap asked me to. I definitely want to read the whole thing, but I haven't been enjoying it nearly as much as the same author's Middlesex, which I thought was brilliant.

I found myself wondering if Jeffrey Eugenides wrote this in college or just afterwards...it was very much about that time period and carried the same kind of obsession and naivete of that time in one's life.

It's odd that all the reviews and excerpts I'd read were about one of the protagonist's time with Mother Teresa's home for the dying, and that turned out to be a very small part of the story.

I did think he did a good--relatively empathetic and accurate-seeming--job of dealing with bipolar syndrome and how it affects the patient and others.
