On the other hand, I was pleased to see someone saying what not to say to a depressed person. Trying to cheer them up will backfire, as it only serves to remind them of times that they were capable of being cheerful about anything, depressing them further. Trying to claim a common hardship for the purposes of bonding will at best have no effect as they are incapable of bonding while in such a state – and at worst will make them feel worse that two people have hardships rather than just one.
Overall, the book was well-written and short enough to read in one day. I find it very difficult to rate. I don’t know what to compare it to. You’ll have to use your best judgment.
