A Confession by William F Aicher

A life laid bare. A captive audience. It’s confession time.

A man reveals details of his life to another, but can he be trusted?

This is a very ambitious novel. Writing in second person is always difficult, and the problem of keeping the reader engaged is magnified with a book written completely in second person perspective. In this regard, the author is successful, and I applaud his accomplishment.

Unfortunately, I expected more from the plot. The development of the main character is solid, and the writing is strong, but I thought the revelations would provide a bigger punch.

If you are looking for an unusual character study, than this is the book for you.

I award A Confession
