Would you listen to Gorilla and the Bird again? Why?
Totally. I think I would gain more insight into bipolar disorder and I would love to laugh at him describing people like Jeremy and Gary. Laughed so hard in parts.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Gorilla and the Bird?
His unbelievable relationship with his mother.
Which character – as performed by Zack McDermott – was your favorite?
Gary and Jeremy!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
For sure and I am bummed that I binged on it for 4 days. Now it's over ;-(
Any additional comments?
As the wife of a BP2 husband, Gorilla's insight into his medications, his spiral into psychosis and mania, his recognition of the symptoms, and his relationship with his advocate, i.e., his mother were all priceless. Sick people often need advocates to help them navigate everything. This is true for cancer patients, people with addictions, and mental illness. The list goes on and on. I could relate to much of what Gorilla told in his story, and I learned a lot of tips for my own relationships. Thank you for a very honest and funny account of your life. Stay well!
MeToo. Best voice (perfect inflection-I thank U Nick-you are the best)I cried through to end.
