Topic: #158: A book under 100 pages
Here is the secret journal of a woman who is slowly slipping into a world of madness. Is the yellow wall-paper the fuel or the refuge of her madness?
This was an interesting read. At first I had troubles getting into it. It was like reading the diary of a bored housewife that has maids and no hobbies. But then something happened. I cannot recall the exact turning point, but I went from dragging my feet to tearing through the pages trying to figure out what was going on. *CRAZY ALERT* Things get pretty crazy and your heat brakes a little for this woman as you watch her slow and inevitable descent into madness. Beautiful and endearing.
