    Depression sufferer review

    I found the book an excellent anthology of depression writing. My copy has a lot of dog-eared pages that I continually reread!!

    Exceptional Food For Thought

    As I began to read Unholy Ghost, I was touched by how vulnerable we all are to depression as well as the unexpected life changes which may come our way. No matter how you feel about mental illness,or if you are someone diagnosed, this book helps you feel for all of the characters. Each story is unique because it is about different people. I especially enjoyed the Styron stories. I wonder, after reading these stories, about how we are all connected by illnesses and accidents which affect people we know. Food for thought, and exceptional writing as well.

    Very insightful, and realistic

    As a person who once suffered of deperession, this book illustrates what it is like to have the disease, and provides great insight on it. A very interesting read, and all interested in the subject should read it!

    Suprisingly Realistic

    Being a sufferer of depression myself, I was surprised how realisic and remarkably similar these various authors had experienced in the emotional rollercoaster of depression. This collection shows many of the haunting aspects of depression that are not usually seen in just one victim. I cryed along with many of the authors who experienced situations that were so close to home. Not only was this book extremely entertaining, but it was very informative on what life is like for those who suffer from depression.

    Thought provoking and at times downright unpleasant though not due to content but its bleak subject. Made for a thoroughly engaging read which was informative and masterfully edited. Brought to mind how depression is an equal opportunity condition: no one is immune regardless of situation nor station in life. Those with gift of expression truly are a help to all in simply sharing their stories. Editor Casey is to be commended on a job well done.
