Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane Book Review

I’ve seen the DiCaprio movie ages ago and when I saw the book that inspired the movie during my charity shop runs, I decided to give it a go. While I vaguely remembered the plot, I thought the book had a good premise and interesting characters, enough to keep me entertained for a few hours.Continue reading “Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane Book Review”

Twisted – Andrew E. Kaufman Book Review

What a thrill this book has been! I started reading and I couldn’t put it down. It was like a book on anti-gravity. All jokes aside, this book is a hell of a roller-coaster. What is worse than losing your mind? Is knowing it’s happened before to one member of your family and knowing it’sContinue reading “Twisted – Andrew E. Kaufman Book Review”

The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O’Melveny * Review

This book was not great but it was not bad either.

The Room by Jonas Karlsson * Book Review

I don’t think I have been so intrigued about a book in a long time. Following You – Caroline Kepnes Book Review and Hidden Bodies, I think I developed a sort of a taste for the life adventures of a psychopath. Or in this specific case, a person with so few social skills it makes the recluse LochContinue reading “The Room by Jonas Karlsson * Book Review”

How to find happiness in nature (Mental Health Awareness Week 2017)

As we are currently towards the end of the 2017 Mental Health Awareness Week, I will tackle suicide and depression. Last year in Japan, more than 25,000 people took their own lives.

Those figures do not make Japan’s the highest suicide rate in the world inContinue reading “How to find happiness in nature (Mental Health Awareness Week 2017)”
