Review: Schizo

Schizo Schizo by Nic Sheff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My first experience reading literature that had schizophrenia as its subject was January First by Michael Schofield. I cried. About two years ago, I read Tweak by Nic Sheff. I wept. Schizo is no different experience.
Reading from Miles' point of view, I fully believed everything Miles said, having forgotten how Goodreads called Miles "the ultimate unreliable narrator." As a result of those beliefs, the ending shocked me in a way I haven't experienced in a long time.
I knew Sheff was a good writer going in, but I didn't know that writing fiction is as much a talent for him as is writing a memoir.
So congratulations, Nic. I loved it!
