A Danger to Herself and Others Reviews
I read this in one sitting, emotionally engaged with it from the very first words, pretty much down to the vibrant, lyrical main protagonist voice – Hannah is quite simply brilliant, alive on the page and about to face a battle against everything she thought she knew.
A Danger To Herself And Others is a beautifully written tale with a focus on mental illness and sense of self that is hugely thought provoking and genuinely authentic in that sense and feel. It has the benefit of being quirky and un ...more
Hannah was away at summer school when her dorm mate and best friend, Agnes, suffered serious brain damage after falling out of their 2nd story dorm room window.
Hannah now finds herself institutionalized because she's a danger to herself and others . Hannah is certain that this is all a very big mistake. She would have never of hurt Agnes. She loves Agnes. It will only be a matter of time before they realize that she's innocent and has been locked away for no reason.

i thought about DNFing this book so many times i just didn’t like it at all. it felt like nothing had happened the entire book even in the big plot “reveals”. i could never get attached to any of the characters, mostly because i feel like none of them were strong enough as characters for reader to form an attachment to them which i HATE. also, the overuse of parentheses was TOO MUCH FOR ME every page had like 3 sets. but over all my biggest problem about this book was the mental health rep (or l ...more

I have read a lot of books that are set in mental hospitals and so many of them feel the same that I almost didn’t want to read this one. But something really drew me to this title, probably the title itself. Rather than reading about someone who is merely mentally ill, the title tells me that the main character is also dangerous, which I found to be different than most other novels written about mental hospitals. Sure, mo ...more
The ending was really dismal and kind of terrible, definitely not a favourite.
Like a day or so again I finally finished my ebook ARC copy of A Danger to Herself and Others (this book is already out, I am just a little behind on my reading due to work which is why this break has been so exciting)! I started this book not that long ago but I was able to finish it in about a day and a half once I started my break from work. I am glad I had the chance to read it and I feel Hannah’s story is interesting and in a way taught me a lot but I also feel like it may have been missing ...more
Very emotional and captivating. Not just a guessing game. Will play mind games with your perception at times.
I received the copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
Their blurb said "Girl, Interrupted meets We Were Liars" and I felt both intrigued and puzzled.
But then I met Hannah on her own pages...and that attitude, that story she basically lives in.
The plot starts like a random end of a rope that you're somehow compelled to pull until it's pulling you and you're so de ...more
"Hannah Gold doesn’t belong in a place like this. Hannah Gold wouldn’t hurt a fly.”
Okay, I have to say it, if you’re going to describe a book as Girl, Interrupted meets We Were Liars… You really need to bring it. Those are both very dark stories and to be a combination of the two, you really need to take a chance and just go for it. Mess with our heads a little. And I just feel like this story is far too safe for that description. And that’s not to say I didn’t like it. I did. I just thought the ...more
