1.0 out of 5 stars Really hard to read- couldn't relate, 6 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Girl In Need Of A Tourniquet (Paperback)
Hated this book. I have a diagnosis of BPD and am currently doing MBT. I've read A LOT of books on what it's like to be borderline and I have to say I found this the least accessible of them all. I just couldn't relate to it at all. It felt really false and 'crafted', like a novelist trying to imagine what it's like to be borderline and show off their writing skills, rather than someone's actual lived experience - it just didn't feel genuine at all and when you're writing about something like this, it needs to be. This book seemed so 'constructed' and contrived which made it very hard to engage with the narrator or relate to their experience. At times it felt like a caricature of people like me - I found it really irritating and frustrating. Plus the book lurches all over the place, it's very 'bitty' and disjointed, not helped by the Emily Dickinson style punctuation. I just hated it. Sorry.
