    1. It's a testament to Hanna Alkaf's writing that even though I'm having the worst reading slump of my life, I still managed to finish this book in a few days. I've always wanted to read this book when it came out out because a) I've always been interested in mental health issues and b) this book came out of freaking nowhere. I know Malaysian writers and there is a kind of fear about writing something that's completely different because you always feel pressured to "appeal to the masses". So, a ser [...]


    2. My book club had the pleasure of having Hanna Alkaf as one of our speakers for our first writing workshop. Initially, I wasn't familiar with the concept of creative non-fiction , but as the author explained further during the talk, I become more interested, especially it involves a taboo topic. What I Liked: The short stories that are told by patients in the book gives us a whole new perspective on how mental illness is handled by society and the government, also the challenges faced by the pati [...]


    3. 4.8 StarsIt was a very good read. I like all the stories and facts given in this book; some hit too close to home, so relatable. I wish to read more of this kind of book. I'm actually speechless at the moment, no words seem right enough to be written here so I'll stop now. Thank you for taking your time to do proper research and collecting stories for this book, Hanna. Your efforts are admirable. Keep it up. <3


    4. Living with people who has mentally ill is really challenging. really. But in our society keep discriminate peoples who having problem with their mental. It kind of taboo to our society. some call the people who having schizo is possessed by demon or being punished by God because their own act. How you could say that to people? they don't even want to get sick. In fact, some of them really don't know that they are sick and seriously need to get treatmentis brought me to read about this book. Bou [...]


    5. I like the book as it bring us into the world of psychosis. I'm a paramedic in general which worked in government few years back. So I have basic understanding of the flow about how the treatment will be initiated to a mentally ill patient. When reading this book, I am expecting that the author would dive deeper into twisted mind of mental patients. I have no issues with the details about ratios,prevalence and stuffs. But I expected that the author could probably concluded what eventually happen [...]


    6. "Gila" is not an uncommon word in our daily life. To many of us, it may simply means a moment of moodiness. But what were demonstrated in this book is much more than the normal up-and-down that we have in mind.This book is indeed an eye opener, given how the public underestimated the prevalence of mental illness. The case studies discussed in this book only revealed tip of the iceberg. In fact, the actual number of people living with mental illness remains unknown, due to the fact that "Gila" is [...]


    7. As stated on the back of the book, GILA was to be a book which compiles stories of people with mental-illnesses and how it affects their lives. Frankly, that was what pushed me to get this book apart from the fact that I thought I should give Malaysian books a try. I had always wanted to read more about mental-illnesses in Malaysia and since it’s not exactly a popular topic in this country, this book was really a rare find for me.Apart from telling about the experiences of those living and str [...]


    8. "Similarly, Hanna’s exploration of asylums in forensic wards for mental illness in places like Hospital Bahagia in Tanjung Rambutan, Perak, shows that even modern medical treatments are tainted by a legacy of abuse and outright brutality and violence.These closing chapters address the issue of the institutionalisation of the criminal and the homeless, which is probably vast enough an area to be addressed in a separate book devoted just to this particular topic.It is shocking and heart-rending, [...]


    9. Despite the fact that so many of its sufferers are crying for help, mental illness remains a little-understood issue in Malaysia. GILA shines much needed light on the subject by providing insight into the challenges local psychiatrists and psychologists face in a concise and easy-to-read manner. I for one was shocked to read about the extent of our country's ignorance of the matter, especially in the sections pertaining to the inhumane treatment of patients in places like Hospital Bahagia (never [...]


    10. A good and precise book for the public to get to know about mental illnesses. Comprising of true stories from the patients themselves, experiences by the professional healthcare workers and the reality about our community's ignorance on this topic, makes it an eye opener.Just the kind of book that I sought for. Thumbs up to the writer.
