Karen at For What It's Worth and Mary at The Book Swarm occasionally post twitter-style reviews. Karen calls hers Short and Tweet, and I am going to borrow that review style here.
Intense dive into one young man's battle with mental illness. Through our unreliable narrator we journey on a vessel called Challenger, into the hospital and on his journey to decipher what is reality and what are delusions. Though I was a bit confused at times and skimmed a bit.
