I finished Prozac Nation last night. I thought the title didn't really fit, except for the afterword where she kind of complained about how Prozac is being prescribed too liberally. She says that people are taking it who haven't been through the 10+ years of agonizing depression that she has. And my response to that is, well, do you want all of those people to be depressed for as long as you were? You want people to endure suicide attempts and pain and the loss of their normal lives as they knew it? You want people to suffer as much as you did, as some sort of basic initiation right?

Anyway, the rest of the book was good. Just skip the afterword.
