Question?: Schizophrenia Stories

Paul asks…

Any books out there about schizophrenia? Fiction / based on true stories. Not a medical approach. ?

I’m interested in seeing what can go on in a mind of a schizophrenic. I’m looking for a book with a real story to it. I’ve read “Inside Out” by terry truman, but I’m searching for a longer one maybe, thats more in depth with the mind. Could I have a list of some possible books? Thank you.

I just finished this book, it’s called Thr3e by Ted Dekker(my fave author EVER). It’s long, but i finsihed it in less than a few days; it’s FANTASTIC! The movie isnt as good, but it has to do with someone like that, you just won’t realize it at first. Its very detailed. If you like this book, you’ll defintly lik ehis other ones. I hope you enjoy it!
