Linda's Closet by Mr. H. Eugene

This story really surprised me. I had some issues with the authors style and plausibility of some of the plot twists, but thought it was a very unusual book. I gave it four stars.
Linda's Closet by Mr.H.Eugene


Linda’s closet has many good ideas. Narrating the story from the point of view of a woman losing her sanity was original. It read at times is a little chaotic and trippy as we were trying to piece together the undoing of Linda’s marriage through her words. The writer has a very distinctive style, but I’m not keen on putting entire words and even sentences in all capitals. It gives the impression of the writer shouting at the reader. Linda’s story is now and then broken up by the notes of her psychiatrists. There are enough twists and turns to spur the reader to read on and find out what was really going on. Some of the plot twists were more plausible than others and in my opinion; I think the writer took it one twist too far. As a bonus there are a few alternative endings if you’re not happy with the first.  I did enjoy this book as the point of view was so unusual. I think this writer has a lively imagination which I wouldn’t mind discovering more of.
