    Beyond awful Did not finish I was going to rant about lazy editors and writers who don t do their due diligence about mental health, but then I realized the problem was much worse Here are some great examples of this clinical psychologist treating his inpatient schizophrenics You need to trust me Don t let this upset you You need to understand rolls eyes

    I really dislike giving a book a bad review because I recognize and appreciate how much time and effort an author pours into it The only reason I even finished this book is because I kept waiting to see if there was some redeeming feature, and it was short There wasn t While the premise of a private hospital for persons with mental illness doing something not on the up and up trying to avoid a spoiler was interesting, the fact that it only came to light as a result of a professional behaving in [...]

    Captivating Though a work of fiction, Sanders Starfish is an intriguing look inside private mental health facilities Allred s characters and narration remind readers that the lives of the severely mentally ill are not without hope.

    Paula
    I can t even give this book one star This was a complete waste of my time I wouldn t recommend this book.

    Lisa
    I only read this book because it was a free selection on BookBub I had difficulty tolerating the main character s codependency and poor professional boundaries, so did not enjoy reading this.

    Liesbeth
    Was really looking forward to this, I liked the concept and I m interested in mental health Adding to that my own daughter had a long period in a psychiatric unit I was sadly disappointed and very bored John, the main character, is dull beyond belief He needs padding out, he needs a side story, something to make him interesting The whole mental health institution is unbelievable and far from reality The whole thing picks up a bit about 70% in the book, and then falls flat on its face again at t [...]

    Not what I thoughtI m sorry to say that I found myself becoming bored as I got deeper into this book It became redundant I kept waiting for something exciting to happen, but it never did I found the main character to be very whiney irritating Luckily, it wasn t such a long read I was put out of my misery just when I was considering leaving it unfinished, which I never do.

    Colleen Ray
    This short book looks at the obsession of a clinical psychologist Although it takes place in the present day, it has a definite old fashioned feel to it The plot had potential, but unfortunately it s incredibly predictable and not much really happens The characters are poorly developed, and the whole thing was just a disappointment.

    Bonnie
    This book wasn t bad but it seemed like the characters didn t wrap up The whys were not answered at the end and I expected it to be something beachy from the title it s about a mental institution.

    Amber
    I enjoyed this book it s a fun clean quick read It made me think a lot about what we as society deem as normal , and that everyone has strange things about them that might not exactly be considered the normal way to be Good book

    Gina
    This book shows an appalling ignorance of mental illness.

    Liz Wood
    Into the depthsRebecca s fate and many others depends upon their ability to deal with reality A clinical psychologist once told me people choose to be crazy and I learned years later that it s true be crazy is a matter of choice, when life seems the worst it is much easier to let go and give up However, life is to be livedgood, bad, mixed up.

    Colette
    I read 8 chapters and I really tried to like it, but I couldn t The style of writing, the coldness of the characters and the factual inaccuracies on the subject mental health was just too much for me sorry.

    Kristie
    interesting insightful

    Barbara George
    Liked this Not a thriller in the current sense but troubling and well done and scary in its own right Must read.

    Michelle
    Good bookYou people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so Shelley MA

    Marie (UK)
    readable but quite predictable

    Fizzy
    Have you ever sat down to write a review but you really don t know how to get started OK, well yeah like every single review I write This time it s a I liked this book, butThere are some things that didn t work for me Before I start my usual picking lets talk about the story John Sanders is young, idealistic, following something he chose as a passion while still just a child and dealing with his mother s own mental illness This is not overly fleshed out in the story and that s OK It seems this [...]

    I won an e book copy of Sanders Starfish this past Christmas and have just now, due to amount of books on my TBR lists been able to get to read review it The following is my honest opinion for this book.Dr John Sanders is a newly graduated, na ve, altruistic clinical psychologist who wants to change the lives of his patients for the better However, he quickly learns doing this is not as easy as he had imagine, nor do things follow what he had learned from all the textbooks he had to read While D [...]

    I really wanted to love this book I love the title and the starfish story that inspired it, and since I once worked in a hospital psych unit, I already had an interest in mental health issues, and for the people who work in this field So I should have been sitting smack dab in the middle of the target audience for this book, right I dunno Maybe I simply expected too much from it.The story in itself had the potential to be very good, and I commend the author for tackling it The subject matter cou [...]

    This book is about the mental health institutions and mental health care providers than it is about any specific mental illness Fresh out of school and wet behind his ears, John Sanders is hired at a prestigious private residential treatment center, assigned to work with a group of schizophrenics at various stages of recovery, and a strong motivation to make a difference in the lives of his patients His friend Randy acts as a foil for motivating John to hold onto his ideals, to delve further in [...]

    The quality of the novel is especially impressive considering this is Allred s first novel If you have ever found yourself rooting for the underdog and or if you have ever had a period of time in your life where you felt like nothing went right, you will like this book I was compelled to keep reading Sanders Starfish in a way that seldom happens for me I really enjoyed how readers can be so involved with the characters that it even starts to play with your head a bit Any person can easily slip i [...]

    This is way out of my usual genre, but I thought I d give it a try anyhow and I m glad I did This was, to me, an interesting emotional exploration of a young man in his first real job who finds that not everything is going swimmingly It reminded me of the first job I had that truly sucked the frustration, confusion, and personal sense of guilt and failure I also found myself getting to know, and pulling for, some of the patients that the young Doctor was working with I appreciated the look into [...]

    Rebecca
    I think anyone who has gone through mental illness crisis or works in this field will hate this book There are so many incorrect statements and no nos that it would make them cringe and not be able to enjoy the book However, for the other 60% of the audience, they will be able to see past the incorrectness and enjoy the story The main character acts a little entitled and whiny, and there are a few instances that are just not believable for the lay person, but the triumph of doing the right thing [...]

    A mystery about so many things, Sanders Starfish kept me engaged from the first page to the last The story lead, a clinical psychologist Dr John Sanders, finds himself beginning his career in a mental hospital where he finds some things not functioning the way he would have expected them to function One patient captures his special interest as he tries to reach into her locked world and help her return to the real world In the process, he starts down a road of discovery that keeps the reader inv [...]

    At first I was only going to give this book 2 stars, but it really picked up in the end, so I decided to go for 3 If you look at this book as a story about a psychiatric hospital, then you will probably find it lacking If you, however, look at it as a mystery, then it s a bit clever Though, I must say, some of the obsessiveness of the doctor, can be a little off putting, even though he is our hero The plot reminded me a lot of What She Left Behind , which has a similar plot but was done in a di [...]

    Thought provoking and disturbingI found this book one I couldn t put down The story of John Sanders and his relationship with his patient Rebecca drew me in and kept me involved to the last page Scary to think such things might actually happen The tension grew at a steady pace until it s fairly realistic mostly satisfying ending I look forward to reading the next installment.

    Susan
    I enjoyed the story, but I never felt connected to the characters and kept waiting for something to happen Instead of immediately being drawn in, I felt as if I was looking at everything peripherally I did love the mini story about the starfish the intriguing title is what drew me to the book in the first place I will give Ms Allred s future books a look see Sanders Starfish was NOT a waste of time

    Elizabeth
    Not worth your timeThis book could have been very good But it just wasn t I found the writing to be disjointed and the transitions were jarring The protagonist was unremarkable and I found myself not caring at all about what happened to him I kept hoping that it would get better but from the first page to the abrupt ending I was sorely disappointed.
