Corners Untouched by Madness Book Review
This book is about Daniels’ struggles, his family, childhood trauma, his obsession with Mei, and his fight to become a good person.
“You need more than love if you want things to work.”
The first thing I saw after picking this book was its cover. It was attractive and relatable to the book. The title, Corners Untouched by Madness was as well relatable but I felt it was quite lengthy. I would have preferred a shorter one.
The mindset of Daniel was precisely mentioned in the book, even when he was going through mental health issues. In a society where mental health is still less talked about, it breaks the stereotypes and conveys that it’s not a cakewalk in and out of mental illnesses. It is much more than that.
I liked the writing style of the author. Reading this book felt as though I, myself was experiencing his journey. It was very fluently written. The language of the book was also easy to understand.
“The most beautiful thing about humanity is that we have the power to transmute our pain into wisdom. The most tragic thing about humanity is that we are so unwilling to be hurt.”
Another good thing about this book was its pace. It was neither too fast nor too slow.
Though I felt there was an over-exaggeration of scenes in some parts which could have been avoided, and still, the message of mental health struggles could have been conveyed. Also, some incidences could have been subtly conveyed. Because it can be sometimes triggering and disturbing for the readers to read it. Other than that it was a good book.
You can pick up this book for a deeper understanding of mental illness and how it can affect your decisions and behaviors.
