Review: Lie Down in Darkness

User Review  - Kirk Carrison - Goodreads

This book is beautifully written but excruciating to read, filled with guilt, attack, jealousy, shame and hatred. The author is unrelenting, and no hope is given but the silence of death. Pretty damn depressing, but I couldn't put it aside. Read full review

A very sad story with hardly a bright spot in it. If you've had to deal with family and friends with mental illness, this book will highlight some of the real anguish and helplessness of that reality ... Read full review

OK! (That's an exclamation, not a rating). Helen turned out to be my favourite character... and she's bat-sh*t. Read full review
