I received a free copy of this book for an honest review. Lucky me. This is a brilliant book. Gina is an engaging person, and the diary format perfectly reflects her character – a pleasant, jocular veneer concealing a much darker nature.
This is a book about obsession and its roots. Feanix displays a shrewd understanding of human nature. In a couple of scenes, the depth of her insight was awe-inspiring.
There are a couple of things that a prospective reader should be aware. Do not be fooled by the levity at the start of the book. This book deals with dark issues. Also victims of hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia (fear of long words) may find some of the word choices challenging. (By the way, that word doesn’t appear in the book.) This is explained as a product of Gina’s study of English as a foreign language, but Gina also seems to use it sometimes to distance herself emotionally from what is happening. In any case, don’t let the language put you off. This book is really worth the effort.
