{Review} DEAD(ish)

Attention: This review is for an adult novel and may contain adult content.

by Naomi Kramer

Linda's had a bad day. First her boyfriend killed her. Then she woke up, still on this boring plane of existence, and with an odd obsession about her missing body. Mike won't tell her what he did with her body, and she can't find the stupid thing herself. There's only one thing she can do - torment the bastard until he coughs up the information.

This is a very short work - novelette length - around 11000 words or 44 (print) pages.

Warning: Frequent foul language, mild sex scenes, and Australian spelling. Not suitable for children.

Review: This book is not for the faint of heart. Not only is there a lot of harsh language as stated in the warning, but there's a really unexpected twist that might roll your stomach. At first I felt bad for Mike but as the story unfolded I really began to really dislike him and actual feel bad for Linda instead. By the end I figured he deserved everything he got. The only thing is that the entire book is in first person and it has three points of view so you have to make sure you note the name under the chapter or in parentheses. This is a really neat story and I enjoyed it.
