A haunting, deeply disturbing, original work
I have never read anything quite like this book. It is incredibly disturbing, with its central character, Dette Chambers, being fixated on death. She believes that she is cursed and, seemingly, causes the deaths of many others. However, whilst death never really leaves the pages, the book also contains a love story. Dette and a would be author, Zach, meet in a cafe. To put it simply, he forces himself into her life, becomes fascinated with her journal and in doing so the two fall in love. The character of Dette, once so cold and detached from life, must confront her inner demons as the romance develops. In this way, she is able to control her obsessive addiction in regards to death, and be reawakened.
One of the most original books that I have read in a long time. It is many things all at the same time: disturbing, dark, sad, but also emotional, passionate and, in a perverse way, uplifting. A story of a developing relationship, bound with almost supernatural elements. A big surprise and well worth a gamble on.

I certainly enjoyed reading this book and would be interested to read more by this author. I can understand it must have been a very difficult novel to write, as it looks at many universal questions regarding life and death. Full review
