warped yet believable,

This review is from: The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer (Paperback)
The first time i read this i was 14 and easily impressionable. The references to sex conveyed my own feelings and anxieties towards the subject, and the pony reference tied in every little girls dream! Bob is the scariest villain since Hannibal and the fear struck me to the core. I don't think i am alone in sleeping with the lights on and the curtains tightly shut for several days afterwards. The two sided personality appeals to all, we all want to have two personalities, preferably one who is uncontrollably wild and carefree. This book captures the descent from childhood to adulthood in an interesting and fun read for all, plus the references to magic and the power to transform and be psychic appeal to us all and tie the story in, making it more than just a normal diary. A thoroughly good read which will make even the most cold hearted of us cry and definately repeatedly readable.
