A fantastic short read!

Do you like a book that crosses the line into the dark side of human nature? One that unashamedly shows just how far people can sink into depravity, given the right circumstances.

Memoir of a Mad Woman is that kind of book. I picked it up, read the first couple of pages, and was unable to put it down. The story is dark, occasionly tragic, and shamelessly twisted.

I hope my review encourages you to download your own copy of Memoir of a Mad Woman.

I loved this story! The main character, Emma, comes from a harsh background and definitely has some issues, but is blissfully unaware of them.

Emma sees herself as a victim, which in some ways she is, but she also feels she is the isolated target of a conspiracy. Maybe she is, maybe she isn’t. That’s up to the reader to decide.

I would have loved this story as a full-length novel. Given Emma’s kind of paranoid crazy, I’m sure she would have left a few more bodies in her wake over the years, had she been more cautious in the beginning.

The only problem I had with this story was being asked to believe that a woman could spend the first fifty years of her life in Institutional settings , surrounded by adults, and never learn the facts about how the female body works. This was a little hard for me to believe, but the story was more than good enough to overcome it.

This book is not for the young, squeamish or easily offended reader, but I highly recommend it for everyone else. It takes us behind the scenes of crazy- in-the-making and gives us a front row seat when the blood hits the walls.
