    • A collaborative, multi-media project about attempted suicide, focused on interviewers with for suicide attempt survivors. This version of it features the comics illustration of John Porcellino. Spare, respectful, subdued, honest, sections are separated by scenes of outdoors with increasing cloudiness and rain. The point of the title is to ask the question, what about the next day? The stories are told in sections, focused on common themes, early experiences, mental illness, substance abuse, fami [...]


    • This isn't exactly what I expected. From the title and the publisher summary, I expected this book to concentrate more on the aftermath of a suicide attempt. Instead, most of this book deals with what leads to an attempt, using interviews from four survivors. This isn't inherently a weakness, but it just isn't what I was expecting. The interviews themselves are chopped up a bit more than I would have liked: a few lines from one person, then a few lines from the next, and so on. It does point out [...]


    • This graphic novel was based on a series of interviews with four people who survived suicide attempts. Each character have their own story to tell. Suicide is definitely a very sensitive topic. When I was reading this I remembered Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why. Hannah comitted suicide and she died. The characters in this novel however did not. They were given a chance to make things right. To improve themselves. The book dealt with a very heavy topic but the illustrations made it a comfortabl [...]


    • Received from: Pop SandboxReceived Via: NetGalley Suicide is usually a taboo topic in our household. We don't talk about it because it is a given fact in our minds that we shouldn't talk about negative things. I realized after reading this book that we should be more aware of the emotions and state of our love ones. We should check on them, see if they're okay. We only get to live once and we should spend it doing what we love and finding our passion. We should also cherish our time with the fam [...]


    • Yeah. Eh.It was pretty good, actually -- a non-completely linear story of four people's suicide attempts -- not particularly broadly painted nor painfully confessional. Basically, it went: attempts, backstory, recovery. Accompanied by the simple sweet drawings of John Porcellino. An oral history of sorts. It was fine, perhaps a bit preachier in the end (don't kill yourself, kids!um, duh) than I had hoped -- and than John Porcellino usually goes with. But of course, he didn't write this himself, [...]


    • Interesting but ultimately just too short to really make an impact the way I think the authors intended. The theme is there and quite well done, but it just seems a bit of a cursory overview. More time is spent on documenting the road to suicide then what actually happens on that next day.


    • It was interesting, but I still found myself feeling like there were unanswered questions about how these people felt and how they were coping/changing their lives after their attempt.







    • This little book wasn't what I expected it to be. I knew it would be about survivors, but I thought it would be focused on the after rather than the build up, the back story, the incident and the after. It was so raw and pure and I cant believe how 100 short pages made me feel. The comic is simple drawings, the story is from interview answers given by four survivors and the set up is one to two pages from each person at the time. Four survivors, four individuals with similar back stories but als [...]


    • Four people talk about their suicide attempts, from their lives leading up to the attempt, to life afterwards. Based upon interviews with real people, the book is short and to the point. Many of the illustrations are very simplistic but there are subtle strengths to some of them, it looks sloppy and childish but there's many succinct details added in to create depth in images of the words and feelings expressed.


    • Very telling. This book follows (briefly) the stories of four individuals who attempted suicide. It doesn't get overly detailed, therefore it's not too graphic. But there's enough history to let the reader know what these four people went through that brought them to the point of suicide attempts.


    • Was expecting something deeper and more profound with this graphic novel that talks about survivors of suicide attempts. Very minimal lines and art, kinda choppy in switching between the four stories.



    • This graphic novel starts with a warning. "This graphic novella is built from intimate interviews with four people who have attempted suicide. It includes descriptions of actual attempts and traumatic events that may be upsetting to some readers." It is the story of four young people, Tina, Ryan, Chantel and Jenn, who all attempt suicide. Each individual's story is told, leading up to their suicide attempt and what happened after.I think it was a very brave thing to do. Suicide, depression, and [...]


    • I found this book helpful for similar reasons I found Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened helpful. While absent the humor that made Hyperbole so iconic, The Next Day's important and helpful to me to read truthful stories about the intersection of suicide and depression. This book doesn't pretend that these feelings can ever truly go away or that if you just believe in yourself you can overcome the wiring of your brain in [...]


    • This short graphic novel tells the real-life stories of four people who have attempted suicide. It's split into three sections: the day of, the days before, and the next day, with each person's stories interwoven throughout."Because I have a mental illness over which I have no control Sorry, that's not quite what I meant to say. I have a mental illness that requires constant care."I hadn't heard of this book before I spotted it on the shelf at the library, but I borrowed it because the premise i [...]


    • I don't remember how I came to have this book or when I first heard about it, but I think it was before I realized I had depression. Re-reading it now, years later, it hits a bit closer to home. I cried reading this, I couldn't help it. I had some ideaat feeling of wanting it to all end. I'll never forget my darkest moments and how painful they were. I'll take a physical injury over that mental anguish any day. The book's format is not exactly what I'd like. Its a bit messy and hard to keep trac [...]


    • ARC provided by NetGalleyThe Next Day is a moving nonfictional account of four people’s suicide attempts, what lead up to the events, and what happened afterward. The stories are taken from personal interviews and are accompanied by simple line drawings. An interactive website at thenexdayb provides more information.Each year one million people die from suicide, and many more make an attempt. However, it’s not something that is really talked about except to build tension on tv shows. Telling [...]


    • I was first introduced to Procellino's work in WALDEN. I love his graphic style, so I was excited to read this. The narratives of 4 attempted and failed suicides must be respected, but I'm not sure the style was the best choice. The narratives interrupt each other, and I lost track of who was who. I would rather have seen 4 separate stories. But I am not as clever at interpreting graphic novels as others. I loved what it had to say at the end. I won't put it on this review because it will spoil [...]


    • This book looks at the lives of four people who have attempted suicide and what was going on in their lives before and after. It was a bit different than I was expecting. I was expecting more focus on the day after (especially given the title) but there was more focus on the time leading up to the suicide attempt. All four characters had really awful home lives and the book made it seem like in order to suffer from mental illness you had to endure some trauma. In that sense, I felt that the book [...]


    • Definitely outside my usual range, this graphic novella depicts the suicide attempts of four different people who were interviewed for a project with the National Film Board of Canada. Extremely stark and simple in both drawings and text, it still manages to convey the feelings of those involved. The word "like" is probably the wrong choice of verb for rating this book, but even though I was able to read through this novella in about fifteen minutes, it definitely managed to get its message acro [...]


    • A graphic novella which depicts, believe it or not, suicide attempts.The books has two sections: "The Day Of"; and "The Next Day".It is powerful and moving: The lesson being that each of these people are grateful for having a second chance.Each person's story is done is a different graphic style; still, at times, I had to flip back to find out who was who. Initially, it was difficult to follow a single character's storyline, since the book alternates amongst the four characters.Graphic novels ar [...]


    • I would give this story a 3.5 if I could, it's not a bad story I just feel it's very difficult to cover such a deep topic as depression in suicide with a few drawings.What this book does right though is it starts a narrative for depression and how very real the struggle with it is. If this short story can help someone who struggles that is awesome but I feel it is best suited for people who are in a recovery phase of their depression, I consider myself one of those people.


    • A simply illustrated graphic novella formulated around the interviews with four near-fatal suicide attempt survivors. It provides moving insight into depression, addiction and other mental illness, how their life stories, in some cases replete with trauma, influenced their decision to end their life and the lessons learned from survival. A quick read (I finished it on a 40 minute subway commute), beautifully executed and compassionately conveyed.


    • Despite the difficult nature of the topic (suicide attempt), this short graphic novel was done in a compassionate and non-judgemental manner in terms of interviewing the four individuals who bravely decided to share what were definitely their most vulnerable moments. A must read for those who work in the mental health field especially or for anyone who wants to understand what a person with suicidal ideation goes through.


    • I heard about the novella on Bell's let's talk day and when I checked the library and saw they had it in stock, I decided to get it. Part of the reason i decided to read the book is that I don't know a great deal about mental illness, and most of what I know comes from the media. I won't say the novella provided a great deal of knowledge on its on (and it was not designed to do so), but it did get me thinking. I just might check out the related interactive experience.
