Out Of The Woods Review

Good Morning!
I hope you're having a brilliant week.

Today I'm going to be sharing with you a book I desperately needed and wanted to write about ASAP. I received this book on Saturday morning I believe and within half an hour I had finished it; it got me hooked and I couldn't stop until I finished it. I received an email about this book last week and needed to get my hands on it; as a depression and anxiety sufferer I wanted to see the way it was written and how it would give myself both courage and hope after reading the reviews which other Authors give on the book. 
Something I didn't realise about this book was how it was illustrated; I was expecting it to be written like a fiction book; a story as such. Instead I was presented with beautifully illustrated drawings in the style of a comic; but it told a story. 

This book brings to life the mental process someone has when they have depression and anxiety and when you're reading this book and suffer from these illnesses; it makes you realise how real it really is and it explains the thought processes you're having. Half the time I can't explain them myself, it's something rather difficult to put into words however Brent Williams did an incredible job of doing this on behalf of so many people, such as myself.
Brent Williams himself suffered with Depression and Anxiety and he brought to life the way he thought and the way he dealt with the illness; in a way it would help people to understand these illnesses if they do not suffer from them; or if you suffer with them and have absolutely no idea how to overcome them.

I cannot explain how important this book is. It's pretty much a practical guide handed to you on how to think it through and understand it yourself. It provides a way of understanding that people shouldn't try and rush out of this by dealing with it, but instead taking small steps to build up the recovery instead of making it worse in the long run. 
As an inspiring story; I couldn't recommend this book enough. It's beautiful in illustrations from Krokut Oztekin and writing from Brent Williams. He definitely couldn't have made it any easier for someone who has to also deal with these illnesses on a daily basis. I would re-read this book every single day; I recommend it to everyone whether you have these illnesses or not; you may know someone who does and could help them if you read this. Out of five, I'd give this book a 10; I loved it.

If you suffer from any illness; please remember there will always be someone around to listen.

I'll see you soon
