    “Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that makes it hard to: tell the difference between what is real and not real; think clearly; have normal emotional responses; act normally in social situations.” - National Library of Medicine

    In reading the synopsis of R. van Niekerk’s “Memowars of Schizophrenic,” I was intrigued to say the least, because I thought I was going to be reading a story of someone that has schizophrenia. What I read was 56 pages of ramblings from one subject to another. There was no story at all, just random thoughts scattered throughout with a ton of questions that the reader (I am guessing) is supposed to think about. Thoughts range from the state of the media, to a song that he wants Dr. Dre to produce, to how women are portrayed, to sports from soccer to rugby, to Obama, to The Holy Quran, to Saudi Arabia and etc.

    This is not what I expected. The writer in the synopsis stated that “this book is addictive.” I found that not to be the case. There was a large part that I did not understand because the author made references to people and things that may not be known by all such as famous sports figures in South Africa and the battle of Safain. I had no clue to the meaning of some slang and the spelling of certain words (Example: Ma’awia - aglil sunnie wal jammah) and it created confusion. Also, there were misspellings and grammatical errors scattered throughout the entire 56 pages.

    Although, the writer is from another country, I feel as if he should have 1) obtained proper editing and 2) explained more of what some things meant for an American to understand.
