Although I kept hoping it would improve, I found this book insulting. It is a story of avoidance, not survival or struggle. The author not only refers to her bipolar husband as a "monster", she also spends much of the book covering frivolous details, such as how famous her employer is, and what awards they have won. Followed by a hastily mention that her husband had been hospitalized for the first time.
The second half of the book is spent discussing how dreamy her replacement husband is. I will be requesting a refund for sure. Too bad I can't get my time back.
I loved every chapter of this true life story. The author/narrator is equally good at writing and reading a compelling and sometimes very emotional account of her life with a husband that has bipolar disorder. I especially liked the short chapters that explore the definitions of various types of mental illness and treatments. A very important and pertinent read for everyone in our society.
