I received a free advanced copy of this book from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program in exchange for an honest review.I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I didn t really enjoy this book It was okay and quite short, so I was able to finish it before I felt like it wasn t worth my time And honestly, it s short length is one of my complaints even though I wasn t fully absorbed into the book I felt that it was incredibly rushed and could have benefited fromlength Part of my discomfort with it was that so much happened in approximately 200 small pages It needed to be much longer to accommodate everything it did It also needed some extra explanation, I thought The book began in medias res and hardly ever provided flashbacks or background information to allow the reader to know how everyone got there.I also felt that the author forced words out of his character s mouths that weren t fitting They often said things that were deep and profound and cryptic This is okay here and there, but it was so frequent that the dialogue truly felt unrealistic to me much of the time.The idea, however, is a good one and that was enough to keep me reading I wouldn t say this book was terrible, by any means It just wasn t for me I probably won t pass it along, either, but there s a chance that I will encounter someone with whom I think it fits What an interesting read A woman who considers herself to be mentally fit falls in love with a man who is charming and attentive to her, and then learns the man is considered dangerously mentally ill That sounds very heavy but this is actually a very playful book It s not disrespectful of mental illness but it just allows this relationship to happen The feelings I had while reading the novel ranged from amused to discomfited Each scene feels nearly normal in action and tone and scene, and What an interesting read A woman who considers herself to be mentally fit falls in love with a man who is charming and attentive to her, and

realize it really is not normal at all What people say is slightly off What they observe is random and not pertinent to the story What is reported by the writer narrator pov character is always a little off, not square but skewed somehow In terms of the reading experience it reminds me most of Jane Bowles but it is really quite unique I m very glad to have read it 3.5 StarsIn this very quirky

chance encounter, when she finds herself head over heels in love with Bob Stephenson Like many before her, she comes to find out that he isn t exactly who she thought he was many months later First, he was not a visitor, but a patient of one of her co workers Foremost, apparently there s a good reason for his patient status Humiliated, after all what kind of a psychiatrist can she be if she couldn t even see the signs, she resigns around the time her tummy begins to swell with the growing evidence of their mutual love Opening up a new practice, solo, in a building that Bob Stephenson s family has owned, and lived in, for a few generations She remains determined to fix Bob Or is it Archie Archie B Billingsly It s a mystery who he really is With a somewhat peculiar and unpredictable cast of characters other than the many men who share the same body with Bob , this may be the most original love story I ve read Pub Date 11 October 2016 Many thanks to Bellevue Literary Press, Edelweiss, and to author Richard Wiley for providing me with an advanced copy This is one of those books that refuses to be pigeonholed Not a read you can skim through What made the book interesting for me were the many characters Some of whom occupied the same body Relationships are unclear Missing pieces make it difficult to piece things together Or even feel reliable as new information keeps changing the game This won t be everyone s cup of tea but I enjoyed it as I m particularly fascinated with Disassociative Identity Disorder formally known as multiple perso This is one of those books
