Overview

Oscar has always lived a life of quiet paranoia, but now everything is changing. Suddenly, the bus is frequently late, his housekeys won't fit in the lock, and someone has taken his juice, which was the one thing holding his life together. He strikes back against the people behind it all, but when he strikes too hard an innocent man ends up dead, and Oscar ends up in jail, diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic and facing life in a mental institution. On his journey to mental health and the truth, he has to make hard decisions about medication, trusting his own mind, dating a nurse, and whether that hedgehog can actually talk.

Jonathan-David Jackson was born in Gastonia, North Carolina, at 3 in the morning on May 14, 1987. At first, he could not walk, talk, or indeed use the toilet. After a year of intensive training in NC, he moved his family to Kingsport, Tennessee, where he finally overcame those early disabilities. Soon, he was walking and talking as good as anyone, and perhaps better. Walking and talking wasn’t good enough, though, so he also learned to write. He wrote and wrote, and with gentle encouragement from his wife, he finally wrote a book – The Quest for Juice. Then he wrote The Quest for Truth. She wouldn't let him rest, though, so then he wrote this biography. Perhaps he’ll do more things; that would certainly be exciting.

I work in the mental health field so I found this book rather interesting. It reminds me of that saying, "just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not following me." Lol

It all started because Oscar’s favorite juice has disappeared and unfortunately for him, it doesn’t end there. Yes, his one friend notices that he has stopped taking his anti-psychotic meds, but that is not of any importance when the people out there are messing everything up as part of a grander scheme. It is up to Oscar to uncover this hidden organization and reveal their plans, before the whole world is lost. Sadly his mission is waylaid when he lands himself in the mental institution. Told from the first person narrative of a paranoid schizophrenic, this book will take readers on a wild and bizarre theme-park ride. Even though readers understand Oscar is mentally ill, they will fall in love with his humorous, witty and gloomy antics on his journey to find the truth. As readers dive further into the story, they will begin to look over their own shoulders, as Jackson seems to be echoing their singular thoughts, just in a more extreme fashion.  Quest for Juice is a satirical and entertaining story with a dash of suspense thrown in towards the end. Notes: The author provided a copy of this book for me to review.  This review was originally posted on the Ariesgrl Book Review website.
