Are there any books where the narrator suffers from a gradual mental deterioration to the point that they're no longer coherent by the end of the book?

Pic unrelated, I guess.

A Scanner Darkly by Phillip K. Dick is the perfect example of this. If that's what you're looking for you'll love it

Isn't Darkly in the third person?

Shit I think you're right, scratch that then...even still you see the protagonist through a fucked up lens as gradually goes insane

I'll still put it on my reading list. Thanks again.

Flowers for Algernon, the novel, the short story.

Not a book, but The Yellow Wallpaper, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

Actually, part of Infinite Jest, although it's such a small slice of such a huge book that it's probably not what you're looking for.
