An excellent, timeless description of living in poverty.
I'm a little disappointed in this book after having read "Me & Emma". Totally different stories I understand and very different subject matters. However, I just didn't get an overall feeling of "ahhhh, THAT was a good novel!" Nonetheless, I did finish it. Perhaps it was the fact that I've just finished reading "A Million Little Pieces" and hearing about and reading all the surrounding hoopla and controversy surrounding that book! Halfway through this book I quickly lost interest and thought "Hmm...similar to Pieces only rehab for suicide not drugs." From back cover: "It's so thin and small it seems impossible that it can end a human life. Two long, quick slices and the pain bleeds away... So begins 'But Inside I'm Screaming', an intense and absorbing novel. It is the unforgettable story of one woman's account of what it is to lose control as the world watches, to figure out what went so very wrong, and to accept an imperfect life in a world that demands perfection. While breaking the hottest news story of the year, broadcast journalist Isabel Murphy unravels on live television in front of an audience of millions. She lands at Three Breezes, a four-star psychiatric hospital nicknamed the "nut hut", where she begins the painful process of recovering the life everyone thought she had. But accepting her place among her fellow patients proves more difficult as Isabel struggles to reconcile the fact that she is, indeed, one of them, and faces the reality that in order to mend her painfully fractured life she must rely solely on herself."
Nice book. Akhirnya aku memaksa membaca buku ini hingga stengah 12 malam. Dan walau endingnya rada antiklimaks (aku lebih suka kalau Catherine ngga bocorin kehamilan dia), tapi pertengahan hingga endingnya oke koq. XD Intrik2 pembunuhannya lumayan, dan rencana untuk membuat Avendale 'menghilang' bagus deh ah. Ga nyangka mereka semua akan bertindak sejauh itu, but i like it. :p
