A Cracking Psychological Thriller
The Breakdown by B.A. Paris is a contemporary psychological thriller and what a fabulous read it is. I was gripped from the start to end. With heart racing, I read on, trying to guess the outcome.. but failed.
The Breakdown is a clever read as it can be seen on two levels, literal and imagined. Written in the first person, the reader can easily see themselves as the main protagonist. Questioning ones sanity as the action unfolds, the reader wonders what is real and what is imagined? And whose sanity is intact?
B.A. Paris has an intricately constructed plotline. As the book progresses, the reader becomes more embroiled in the action. Home, that should be a safe haven becomes more and more terrifying. Who can be trusted? Where does the truth lie?
There are the themes of guilt and trust. In a world that is becoming more shaky, who can one confide in? Guilt can eat away at ones peace of mind. The past cannot be changed. The guilt needs to be dealt with. Confession is good for the soul but who can be told the truth?
I thoroughly enjoyed The Breakdown. It was my first forage into the genre of psychological thriller. It is not a book to be read alone. B.A. Paris is a marvellous new author and I shall definitely be seeking out more by this author.
A cracking tale. More please.
