Susanna Kaysen wrote a very touching memior. Everyone feels like at outsider at some point in their life, making it easy for readers to relate to Kaysen. She also included documents and letters during her stay at the institution. Some of the imformation is blacked out, but it helps add personality to her memior. She is witty in her style and able to draw the reader into her world. I never thought I would like like a memior taking place inside an institutuion after a failed suicide attempt. Kaysen has a very friendly tone and an interesting look on life. Its the unusual method of the book which make it so appealing. In general this is an excellent book to read. The movie was awful, but the book is a modern masterpeice.
