Product description

About the Author

Renata F. Barcelos lives in Brazil with her beautiful and creative daughter and teaches English and Spanish as Second Languages. She watches way too much TV and reads perhaps too many (almost exclusively) mystery novels. Nonetheless, she has somehow convinced herself it's all work - research for her own stories. She writes for as long as she can remember, and has two published works: 'Mean: a Psychological Thriller Novelette' and 'My Sore Hush-a-Bye'. She's now working on a novel called 'Myself in Blue'. http://renatafbarcelos.wordpress.com @RenataFBarcelos https://www.facebook.com/RenatalFlBarcelos

This is the first story I have read by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Mean is a novelette which is packed with story. The story is set around a lady who seeks therapy because she feels she has a mean streak inside her. She seeks therapy not for help but to make her decision on whether to act on dark thoughts she has been experiencing.

The story unfolds in a Psychiatrists Therapy Room, it is set around numerous therapy sessions where the patient tells her whole life story and has to make a decision which the Doctor will have a huge impact on the final decision made.

I do not want to spoil the story so I will not divulge anymore. This story is a dark psychological thriller with plenty of twists and turns, I read the story in one sitting because it had me captivated from the beginning to the end.

I can not wait to read more of the author's work, I have rated this 4 stars but if the option was available I would rate a strong 4.5 stars.

I have never before come across a narration quite like the one in this novel, which made for a thoroughly enjoyable read. It is set over a course of nine therapy sessions, and consists solely of the main protaganists dialogue to the therapist. There is absolutely nothing else. Occasionally she responds to questions the therapists asked, but we never hear the therapists questions, we only assume from the context of the reply.

This made for an extremely unique story telling. The length of this novelette was perfect, as much as I loved the style of the narration I think it would have began to get old if it had carried on for much longer, as it was I didn't find myself losing interest but there was still time for plenty of background information to be filled in.

It was obvious from quite early on that there was going to be a bit of a twist towards the end, and I had a pretty accurate idea just what this was going to be from about half way through, but as the protaganist herself says at the end she left plenty of clues throughout the narration, so this was not unexpected.

I'd recommend this for anyone looking for something a little bit different, very enjoyable distraction.

A young girl approaches a psychiatrist to help decide if she should kill someone or not, what will the outcome be?

This is a very intriguing novelette that makes you want to keep reading to find out what the outcome will be, and very cleverly written, its like the main character, Cassie is speaking to you, as well as the psychiatrist. I thought I guessed the ending part way through, but I was very wrong!!

Very interesting style, and will be interested to read more by Renata.
