Gerald’s Game by Stephen King | Book Review

This is genuinely one of the most twisted, unique books I've read. Focusing on a sex game gone horribly wrong, this is the story of Jessie Burlingame's struggle to survive. That's not all that's going on, though. Jessie has voices speaking to her, a stray dog who is desperately hungry, and a possibly malevolent presence… Continue reading Gerald’s Game by Stephen King | Book Review

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch | Book Review

One night, she meets an older man and embarks on a passionate relationship with him. Sadly, the book let me down severely. The narrative is written in a stream of consciousness/syntax format, and… Continue reading The Lesser Bohemians by Eimear McBride | Book Review
