Emails from and to Tom have been compiled to Sophie. These emails, as the title implies are scandalous! Tom is dead but he ain't been playing by the rules.
This book reminds me of The Afterparty by Leo Benedictis, you know its fiction, you've been told its a work of fiction, but you always sit on the edge of 'is it REALLY fiction.' The way it is written and compiled is so real, especially with the fore and after word from Sophie! SO SO BLOODY REAL.
The notes and emails which compile this book make it personal and emotive. You keep thinking bastard, bastard, bastard the whole way through. It really did evoke a great deal of emotion from me. It also worried the hell out of me! Do you really know any one??? Do you really know you can trust the people around you? Is everyone really a manipulative bastard deep down?
There are a few odd and cliched bits of language in the emails bandied around. This may however be intentional in many cases as manipulators, I am sure will stop at nothing to get what they want. They know how to use lang to wheedle themselves in and anchor their place in a person's life and heart.
I'm most pleased that this book didn't pass me by. It is compelling and intriguing and so so uncomfortable and disturbing! There is sex and love and manipulation and psychological abuse! WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT??
