Book 27: The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick

I've not seen the film of this, so I can't make any direct comparisons; from what I've read about the film, I think they changed it a fair amount. I thought this was an enjoyable book, though I can't say any of the characters are particularly appealing (not because of the mental illness, but because outside of that, their worldview and mine is pretty different). But I thought it was an interesting portrayal of mental illness, and authentic feeling, at least in my limited experience.
