Good job on a compelling review. It sounds like a very complex book that will make you think. However, it doesn't sound like my "cup of tea". I may download it anyway, since it is the BOTD.

Thanks very much for your review. It's a very interesting concept and it sounds as if it manages to pull the reader in. Intriguing.

In the contemporary era we have lived, starting couragously with a huge confesion about himself,his twenties, people around him, a question for what is good or mistakes we(he) have(has) done into depth like a philosophical question... and his own story... Then, his sins control him to make confessions. Hold on! It is just beginning of the book...

This sounds very interesting. I like the idea of a realistic character, not necessarily good or bad. I normally like philosophical reads, but I just don't think that I am up for it right now. Thank you for the wonderful review; it definitely does its job.

Awesome review. The novel is meaningfully written because sometimes we have to know that each of our action will still come back in our mind. Now our consciousness will be disturbed when it comes to face the reality. To be free one should confess. The novel takes into account our behavior and the deep path of human being.

This seems like a very interesting and unique book. It's interesting that the character talks to the reader. Like inviting them in.

It sounds unique and almost it talks real life.But it might divert one's perspective about life. I love it for sure. Thanks to the author's creative mind.

A very interesting glimpse into a man's thoughts, dark at times. I think by the description and your review, I will be reading this one. Thanks for your great review.

Starting couragously with a ontological question about himself, people around him and a confession or speaking out by himself in the book... That is happening to us every day. The main characher is telling us some important points of life he wants to share. Hold on ! It is just beginning.. Time to listen to us a bit.

Thank you for this great review. After reading the first chapter of this book I wasn't quite sure if it'd be worth continuing. I'm glad to hear that the first person writing style serves a purpose to the story. I'm much more intrigued by this concept after reading your review. I think I will give this book a shot.

You had my interest at "unnamed main character" - what a fun concept! It reminds me of Victor Hugo's Last Day of a Condemned Man a little.

I am interested in this book. It touches philosophy while it carefully narrates the story of the author. There are times when we experiment with our life situation which may result to something we never wished for, let us join the author as he recalls his life.
