    Delirious is billed as a thriller but so much A very touching and affecting portrait of the effect mental illness has on a family especially two brothers and how they come to understand each other under very difficult circumstances so a great thriller indeed but also a coming of age aspect too David Palmer is a superb writer The character of Charlie evolves so very much over the course of this superb book The reader's understanding of the mentally ill and the challenges they face not just from their illness but from the perceptions of others is expressed with grace and great skill The thriller aspect of Delirious is gripping and coupled with the mystery inherent in the plot David Palmer has hit a grand slam at his very first time at batAN OFFICIAL JAMES MASON COMMUNITY BOOK CLUB MUST READRICK FRIEDMANFOUNDERTHE JAMES MASON COMMUNITY BOOK CLUB

    I had a hard time reading this book It is an excellently crafted thriller It has a uniue set up but one that is particularly personal to me I am not schizophrenic like Joe the main character's brother But I am epileptic and the twist in this book really bothered me It is horrifying to think that something like this is possible But I'm scared that it might be

    I found the writing long winded and sometimes extraneous I didn't particularly like Charlie the main character and I couldn't bring myself to care about his plight I skimmed the second half of the book trying to see if it got better For me it didn't

    This first novel was horrendous from start to finish A good idea badly written is still a lousy book From the beginning our hero wanders through a series of frameups that a man of his supposed intellect would never have allowed to happen The story is so preposterous that I could not suspend my disbelief and the writing is amateurish as wellI hate books where we are treated to the character's thoughts ad nauseam Should he do this or should he do that If he does this this might happen but maybe not If he does that this might happen or maybe not etc etc etc Avoid at all costs I am now wondering why I finished it and have decided that I wanted to see how the techno things were accomplished Some of those explanations in the last chapter were interesting but it took soooooooo long to get there
