What the community says about I Never Promised You a Rose Garden
- "This is a heart touching story, it's crude, a bit harsh and has much reality in it. It's full of feels and hard moments. The main character is unique and it was easy to feel simpathy for her and I could feel a conection i don't usually develop while reading. It's a great book but it's sad and a bit too painful to read, I still highly recommend it. "
- "Very interesting book about a girl recovering from mental illness in the 50s and her adventures with her doctors and people with her same illness. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the literal side of mental illnesses. "
- "this is just an ok book in my eyes. it is decently written and the story is told well. i just couldnt really get into the subject matter of the book and that is on me and the book. if someone enjoyed this sort of subject matter i am positive they would really enjoy this book. i just found it boring."
- "I read this book in high school, and many years later picked it up again. The writing is very good; the story is well laid out and executed. All these years later, I would say that her portrayal of this mentally ill teenager is spot-on. I was saddened to see that the family reactions portrayed in this novel are also, in large part, valid as well. "
