Chapter 1,5 - The "Devil" - Also Review by Layla of Indie Book Reviewers

"Wailing in deep, deep Sorrow."  (page 29)

Chapter 1,5


The "Devil"

Where is this sorrow coming from? She is on her knees, but she is not praying. She seems to be imprisoned (see the window) and some weird creature is having fun in bouncing on and off her neck. “Deliver me of this four legged creature” she might be thinking, but she doesn’t do anything about it.  It looks like an insect, a spider, a clown with horns. What do you see?  If you turn the page a little, her position also resembles a brain. Definitely she is wailing in deep deep sorrow. 

Review by Layla of Indie Book Reviewers:

To say this book is totally unlike anything I’ve ever read before would be an understatement.  I’m not sure how to even describe this book as SO much happens, and it seems to touch on so many elements, themes, and subjects, times and places. It is told in a stream-of consciousness manner mostly recounting past events (but told in present tense…). I think that you need to take your time while reading it to really grasp everything the author is saying, as it will require some deeper thought and reasoning. Gets pretty dark and twisted, and definitely for a mature audience only. But overall a very interesting, different type of book that is memorable, moving, and very well-written. (4-5 stars).
