Lawson's ups and downs with depression are...inspiring. Even through the worst of times she forces herself to understand and realize that it is not always going to be bleak and painful. She is a fighter - what I like most is that she is not one bit pretentious. She is delightfully quirky - she knows she's not perfect, and she doesn't try to be. Her husband deserves mad props as well. He's so supportive and calls her on her BS without being mean about it. They share a lovely relationship. They are both hysterical and bring out the best in one another. I look forward to reading more about their journey together.
Meh. Jenny Lawson's first book was much funnier. Furiously Happy is meant to be an honest yet humorous account of living with mental illness. I'll assume that the former is true, but it failed in the latter. Unfortunately, this book about depression seems...... depressing.
I laughed out loud through the whole book! Her honest look at mental illness will help many of us be more real and less ashamed.
