In 1967, after a session with a psychiatrist she'd never seen before, eighteen-year-old Susanna Kaysen was put in a taxi and sent to McLean Hospital. She spent most of the next two years on the ward for teenage girls in a psychiatric hospital as renowned for its famous clientele--Sylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, James Taylor, and Ray Charles--as for its progressive methods of treating those who could afford its sanctuary. Kaysen's memoir encompasses horror and razor-edged perception while providing vivid portraits of her fellow patients and their keepers. It is a brilliant evocation of a "parallel universe" set within the kaleidoscopically shifting landscape of the late sixties. Girl, Interrupted is a clear-sighted, unflinching document that gives lasting and specific dimension to our definitions of sane and insane, mental illness and recovery.… (mer)

4.5 stars

This was such a fast read for me. MIND YOU i’m a really slow reader and the book is quite short BUT IT WAS JUST SO CAPTIVATING. I think it was just really refreshing to read someone be so vulnerable about their feelings, about what they know and don’t know, and about their difficult past. I loved how this was structured and how she didn’t explain you the order of events or specifics on everything, she doesn’t owe it to me, but I still understood how this place worked and how her life worked (well the picture she painted of these things). There was a clear voice in this memoir and it wasn’t apologetic. It was brave and daring and ready and so on voice that it was moving to read. Writing something like this could not be easy. Being honest is not easy! But she did that, and i’m grateful to her for letting people read this :,). ( )

Lately, I've been fascinated with real-life stories on suicide and mental illness. Like The Bell Jar, this memoir is hilarious and thought-provoking. I love quoting many parts of this book to describe my perspective.
My favorite chapter is Keepers, where the author talks about helping the interns become better versions of themselves.

This is one of the two books I've read that I can honestly say the movie was better than the book. ( )

thinking of doing a booktalk for class on this....i liked the movie when i was a teen.

***

i actually like the book better than the movie; I think the pacing and breaks in the story (including the medical records) make more sense in the context of sanity/insanity than the linear movie does. i also enjoyed sk's more than somewhat critical descriptions of my sister's high school. ha! ( )

I'm usually pretty reserved with my 5 star ratings so designating this one a 5 kind of puzzled me in a pleasant way.

Though the book is a short one (not even reaching 200 pages), I found Kaysen's prose to be smooth as butter. I wished the book was longer, actually, as I felt a weird, almost-displaced comfort in reading her depiction of a 1960's psychiatric hospital. As a nursing student, I was very drawn to the persistent familiarity of the psych ward, as Kaysen described it; even after 60 years, it seems not much has changed regarding the relationships between mental health patients and mental health nurses.

Having first seen the movie I thought the experience of reading the novel would be tainted with pre-formatted imagery and plot points, but it seems the producers of the movie did not reference Kaysen's eponymous autobiography when they set out to translate it to the big screen. All the better for me as I was able to meet all of the women Kaysen encountered and shared experiences with during her near two-year stay at McLean Hospital and truly appreciate the plight of questioning their own sanity.

I loved and was thankful for the pseudo-philosophical questions Kaysen poses both to her younger self and to the reader about mental health, what defines it, what constitutes it, is it a brain or mind issue, etc? Along with the seemingly-never-changing goings-on of the psych ward, the question of what constitutes a mental health abnormality and how we go about treating it has also persisted and that makes for great conversation. When the story one has to tell can successfully knock against the waves of time and push ever onward, remaining relevant and powerful in its message...that is a 5 star novel to me. ( )
