But he is also torn between reality and his own world.
Without explaining too deep [heh. pun], this book does AN AMAZING JOB of symbolizing what it's like to live with a mental illness, and the more I read and discovered how the ship actually worked, I found myself REALLY tied to all of the characters and I understood their struggles with their mental illness and how people felt towards them. As someone who struggles, I empathize with them.
The only problem is that readers might find the beginning very confusing. The pictures are also confusing, but they are VERY important.
Overall, I give this book a 5/5! I'd give it an extra star for it's proper portrayal of mental illness, but alas, I can not. So congrats from a mental illness awareness standpoint.
