The film has strong focus on the characters and they are the driving force of the story. A great cast circled this project and it is easy to see why.

Great soundtrack and some up and coming actors are provided great material to work with. The movie is a bit of a downer but you'll be rewarded with a wide range of character actors driving this film forward.

Good film and well worth a look. Crazy Credits. Alternate Versions. Rate This. A clinically depressed teenager gets a new start after he checks himself into an adult psychiatric ward.

I say this at the risk of sounding like an angry feminist. But, well, I'm a feminist and this book made me angry.

From the sexual assault survivor he teaches to love again though his continued advances are clearly unwanted and unneeded , to the poor man he saves with the shirt off his own back, all of the other patients in Six North LOVE Craig and are sure to tell his parents what a great kid he is.

The ones that don't love him are just too messed up to see what a great guy he is. Somehow, amid all the Craig-worship, we get a few moments to laugh at the silly conflict in the middle east and their silly religions.

That's fun! Vizzini manages to pack in everything that could possibly mortify and still save room for tedious writing and contrived plot devices.

I would say it was a waste of time, but a little bit of self-righteous indignation can be nice from time to time. Unfortunately, this was more than a little bit of self-righteous indignation.

On the point of suicide, Craig checks himself into the hospital, hoping to come to find hope beyond his depression.

Inside he gains perspective on his illness, his current lifestyle, and his own talents and strengths. Smoothly written with a strong voice, "Funny Story" is full of vivid, real characters.

What rings less true is Craig's almost-miraculous recovery and ability to gain a new lease on life after only five days.

However, the fairly unbelievably happy ending was welcome after the flood of depressing books that seem to be hitting the charts. View all 3 comments.

One night Craig decides to take his own life. Before he does he reach out to the Suicide Hotl Craig Gilner is an ambitious teen wanting to get into the best school, go to the best college, and get the best job.

Before he does he reach out to the Suicide Hotline. Craig goes to the hospital and admits himself into a mental hospital.

From there he meets the residents and gets on the road to better understanding his illness. I found this novel to be right on the mark.

I too have spent time in a mental hospital on suicide watch. I felt Ned Vizzini handled the issues of anxiety, depression and suicide with humor You'll understand the humor when you read the novel.

It helps us to appreciate the story more knowing that the author spent time in a mental hospital.

Unfortunately, Ned Vizzini committed suicide in December I recommend this book to better understand the issues of anxiety, depression and suicide.

I read this in less than 24 hours. All I can say is, that it's still such an important read and one of all-time favorite books.

I recommend it to everyone. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. ETA: Ned Vizzini's death makes me feel sick to my stomach with sadness.

Rest in peace, so sorry he lost his fight. Those of you who love John Green: this is a recommendation! But personally, there are few types of characters that annoy me more than the dorky boy whose main ambition ETA: Ned Vizzini's death makes me feel sick to my stomach with sadness.

There are other things in life, boys! This may be a bit of an exaggeration. Vagina touching gets a lot of mention.

Actually, it's not the teenage quest for sex that bugs me so much as the fact that in this book, like in Looking for Alaska , the first person boy protag is lusting after and objectifying a girl that specifically does not want to be objectified and is, in fact, made miserable when she is.

At least and I never thought I'd say this in John Green's version, there's some acknowledgment and shame felt about this.

It's unfortunate that that aspect of the book sucks, because it all comes to a very good ending. Vizzini's been in a psych ward, so he knows what the Shift from unwellness to wellness feels like upon becoming stabilized enough to leave -- it's wanting to [verbs!

I don't know if that's a difference you can understand so acutely if you haven't experienced it, to be happy even to want to pee or to go grocery shopping or to commute to work or whatever.

Also: I love Jimmy the schizophrenic. He is the best. Even though two stars is a little stingy for this one, one of those full stars is for him.

He deserves it. Jul 18, Sandee rated it liked it. While I could relate to this book on some levels Was it the character?

Not at all. I actually kind of like Craig. Was it the plot? I actually books that deal with psychological issues.

Was it relatable? It was. It dealt with depression quite a bit. Even had suicidal thoughts at some point. So this was not it either.

But I had a big problem with how the story was told. It dragged out on a lot on the first part of the book. It was on While I could relate to this book on some levels In short it was a bit boring.

I found this book extremely triggering for my anxiety and depression and could not continue. It's fantastically written though and I still recommend it if it sounds interesting to you!

Trigger warning: suicide and suicidal thoughts, self-harm, depression, anxiety. Some people just hide their crap better than others. Through a series of events, Craig finds himself in the adult wing of the local psychiatric hospital where he meets a slew of different patients.

Ironically, he lost his battle with depression and committed suicide in December of , nine years after he was hospitalized. He obviously really wanted to live, and saw himself thriving on into the future.

It doesn't elude me that this book had similarities to Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar, also semi-autobiographical, and much like Vizzini's life, hers ended much too early.

Jul 11, Alexa rated it did not like it Shelves: books-i-hold-grudges-against. I tend to be overly generous with regards to book reviews, so I let Funny Story take three stars.

If I could, I would grant it two and a half stars, but that's not an option on Goodreads. And I will admit, there were a few things about the novel that I liked.

I suppose I'll start with the good things, else I'll be too worked-up and frothingly-mad by the end of the criticism to actually say anything positive.

The first half of the book was earnest, genuine, and not exactly powerful but definitely memorable--Craig is basically a good guy, and the reader can sympathize or empathize, depending with the kid.

His friends seem like cardboard cutouts of teenagers oh, wait, it's not time for negative criticism yet, is it?

Craig's descriptions and experiences of chronic depression are pretty accurate, initially. Those good things are heavy outweighed by the bad, however.

Firstly, what makes me so mad about the book is its resolution. Craig hooks up with not one but TWO girls during his stay in psychiatric care.

That seems a little ridiculous--the hospital sounded more like a four-star hotel than a center of mental health: I mean, a smoking lounge, poker games every other night?

Just saying. I expected more formalities, structure, and healing--and became a sort of deus ex machina. Craig just "gets better" almost overnight, which comes as a slap in the face to me.

Let me tell you, it really does not happen like that. It also bothered me that Craig's problems seemed to obviously stem from school-related stress, yet this was almost ignored in his treatment.

Not that that wasn't a valid cause for his distress; it was just misleading, if the reader did not know any better.

Regardless of whether the cause was external or internal, though, I doubt that a teenage fling or two would have "fixed" everything.

Overall, I was disappointed. There was so much potential--here was a tale of genuine teenage problems that didn't turn the victim into a punch line.

Vizzini just had to ruin it by leaving readers with the moral that "true luv" and a positive attitude can nullify genuine illness.

And to that I say, Vizzini, go perform a physical impossibility. View all 18 comments.

Its synopsis makes it clear from the get-go that it's a book about a character going through some tough times, which isn't usually my thing because I'm of the opinion that we go through enough tough times ourselves without watching or reading about other people having it too, but I have myself gone through depression and I thought, "Well, here's your chance to read about tough times you actually identify with.

Mostly because despite the theme It's Kind of a Funny Story tackles, it never lets things get on the melodramatic end of the storytelling spectrum, but also because it is one of the most lovely and lighthearted books I have read to this day.

Depression is a weird little thing, because you can never really know when or why it started; you can't get tested and be diagnosed with it; you can't have an unsafe encounter with a really bad situation and boom , it's over, you have depression, no way to back out now.
