William F. Aicher’s A Confession takes a look inside the mind of a nameless man struggling to find meaning in a life that he now questions. Journey with him as he navigates through this crisis by recounting of the choices he has made to a captive. His falling in love with a millennial, a glossy mirror of who he used to be, just adds to his life questions. This timeless internal struggle explores the very definitions of arrogance, freedom, regret, ego, control, public humiliation, and blackmail in the digital age.
A Confession is brilliant! It literally had me on the edge of my seat. I was mesmerized by the writing of this novel, it pulled me in. The psychological aspect of A Confession is insane! I have never loved a nameless character more! Honestly, A Confession is full with intensity and at some parts I got the chills. Just the mannerisms and how this man would talk to the reader is just so strange. I don't know how else to describe it.
I love that this book was focused on the more psychological side of the character, than a thriller part. A Confession reminded me of a Stephen King novel, which I love, just the right amount of twists. This book makes you think, throughout the book I tried to put together all the pieces of this man's life. Putting the puzzle together.
Honestly, hands down one of the best books I've read this past couple of months, and I read a lot and probably the best psychological book I have read! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a mind experience because that's what you'll get in A Confession! Five stars!
