I chose this book because I had done a bit of research on it, and I found that the symbolism of this book is strong. Caden Bosch is living two worlds, one of his imagination, one in real life. This imaginary world, one where he is an artist for a pirate, who is wanting to go deep into the Mariana's Trench. Once he agrees on this expedition, Caden develops a mental illness. Will this illness gradually get better? Or worse?

Read one book a month related to the prompts and post about it in the 29th.
See @MrBook profile for details.

Considering l'm terrible with challenges, it's not able that l'm taking up both #ReadingWithMrBook and #ReadingEurope2020. And am even considering #Booked2020 (though l failed epically to this year edition).

What challenges are you taking up in 2020?

Freespirit I am doing #ReadingEurope2020 and will aim for 50 books for the year again. It's manageable for me I hope. I don't want to commit to too much as much of my reading is spontaneous! 2w

I was running 20 minutes late this morning and grabbed whatever books were closest to the door to read on my break as I was running out of the house. I ended up with Challenger Deep and Ten Days in a Mad-House...super random choices, but I've also been wanting to read both so I guess it works out. 😂📚

Genre: Fiction
Book started: 10/11/19
Book completed: 10/16/19
How did you choose this book: Read the back of the book (blurb)
Summary: Caden Bosch has two worlds the real one and the one in his mind. Over the past months he loses his grip on reality and close ones start to notice his odd behaviour. He goes through a lot of paranoia and treatment. As he's clear he gets to go home, but though it could come back he knows to be the bigger person.

Mental illness--such an important topic, and this book captures what it is like to be tormented by inner demons that require hospitalization, therapy and medication to be vanquished. Shusterman compares mental illness to a tempestuous ocean with beasts that require confrontation. It took me three times of starting this book to figure out where he was going, but once I got it, it was worth the ride. ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

Shusterman has a writing style I respect. This story involves a #fantasysetting that is part of a conjured place in the psyche of the MC. It becomes his “default setting” (yes, pun). Poignant

What a great book! Once I got used to the writing style, which alternates between MC Caden‘s real world and his alternate reality caused by his mental illness, I found the book to be utterly fascinating. I think this is a wonderful depiction of what it must be like to live with mental illness.

Sometimes there are moments when we objectively face the never, and it overwhelms us.

I'll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can't hurt us

The writing style of this book took a little getting used to, but it‘s worth it. The story centers on a teenager suffering from mental illness and is told from his perspective, which includes both real events and events that are constructs of his illness.

Some heavy topics are covered here but the story is also told with humor and empathy.

Hope you guys enjoy it too!

Centique @Cinfhen i think it‘s just that for a large part of the book you‘re inside the world of his psychosis. It‘s interesting because you can see how his brain is taking real life people and events and reimagining them. As the psychosis ends most of the “unreal” elements feel explained. I can see how that part would be jarring for a reader that is used to realism maybe? 10mo

I loved this! Thank you so much for putting this on my radar @Robothugs

A story of mental illness, this book puts you inside 15yo Caden Bosch‘s head. You experience his psychosis and his times of lucidity. You jump in and out of reality, seeing patterns and reflections between what is real and how that is interpreted in his psychotic state. It‘s such a good book for creating empathy I think - and a wonderful chaotic ride to go on with Caden.

Robothugs Oh my gosh I‘m SOOOOOO happy you loved this. 💗💗 It will always remain among my favorites. The backstory makes the impact that much stronger. 13mo

Mehso-so

Despite the glowing reviews, If I didn‘t have to read this book for work, I don‘t think I would have finished it. I really admire the writing talent of Mr. Schusterman...yes, this book is truly excellent work. I gave it a “so-so” review simply because it was so hard to follow. Jumping between Caden‘s reality and the world of his mental illness was confusing, and I just don‘t think a book should be so much work to read!

Shusterman used his experience with his own sons's schizophrenia for this. Gorgeous & heartbreaking (but ultimately hopeful) this tells the story of Caden as he travels the open seas with the Captain. It was interesting how the narrative of his real life (and the rather terrifying ways his illness manifested) and his journey with the Captain are at first separate and then mesh as the medication starts working.

JenlovesJT47 @sweetpealsd @mklong @Bookishgal71 great! Going to send a group email later today and we can start picking out our next books. Since this is the last round we can send this book back to the original owner at the end of the month along with our new book to save on shipping, if that sounds good to you guys! 🤗 2y
mklong @JenlovesJT47 @Bookishgal71 @sweetpealsd Sounds good to me! Are we picking and sending our new books at the end of March? Or were ya‘ll thinking February? 2y
JenlovesJT47 @mklong I emailed everyone, imo it would be easier to mail our new books with this month's book at the end of February, but it's up to you guys! 2y

I do appreciate & understand where the author was coming from in writing this book and I have the utmost respect for that; however, it was not my cup of tea. I understand he was writing from the perspective of a schizophrenic teen, but I really didn't enjoy the writing style. I'm happy there are so many people who enjoyed this book, and I do think the message is good - I just got bored, especially during the non-reality parts. 2.5⭐️#LMPBC #GroupQ
