Maniac! It's a word no one wants to be called nor it is ever associated with anything nice.
In this read the author explores that very deep dark side all of us has and ultimately fears will bubble to the top one day.
We meet a troubled young woman and the deeply disturbed clients she meets with at a mental health institute, all the while trying to cope with her own heightening concerns, which includes consciousness lapses, violent memories of a high school sexual relationship , a menacing stalker and an annoyingly arousing visitor who may or may not be insane.
So clearly as you can see from the above , this book is one of those really spine chilling , man oh man how did heck that this just happen , and what the heck did she just do, kind of reads.
It certainly had me thinking more than once about the what if's should I ever start having the unspeakable and truly very disturbing experiences that this poor gal has to go through.
And darn you Mickey ! Every time I thought I had it all figured out the author who add another layer of darkness and throw me right back to starting again trying to pull it together, frustrating but really brilliant touch !
I will add that this author has a very almost too twisted manner with her writing, she can make you feel dirty and sweet at the same time and she can make you feel like you are inside the complete wrong book yet you find you can't leave, you have to reach the end to see it all come to an end, wish I adore , but of course for some readers that simply just won't work, and thus when reading this book you might want to make sure you are able to handle a very gutsy novel.
Songs of the Maniacs is a very intense, twisted read, that after completion will haunt you for days! But if like myself you are a reader that likes entering the world of the wicked and profoundly very much out there , then this read is perfect.
4 star review
" She hears songs, songs of the disturbed ones around her, or are those her own songs?"
