A chilling assortment of shattered lives. I find the book very interesting. Letters from the Looney Bin does an excellent job with telling stories that are gripping and compelling. I can still call up, in vivid fashion, horrors described by these people of the asylum. Riveting first person descriptions allow you to peer into the dark corners of their past.
The stories are generally depressing in nature due to their content but are very interesting. The bottom line is if you're interested in this subject then the book is worth reading. There are a lot of characters involved and all of the stories are very detailed. Thatcher C Nalley has written an amazing book here, and for anyone who hasn't read her work before - give Letters from the Looney Bin a chance, you will end up a huge fan!!
The writer did a good job keeping the suspense until the end. I'm a fan of thrillers, mysteries and paranormal stories but I have to say this one is a winner on all fronts. I really enjoyed this book. There were so many twists and turns and was never slow reading. I liked the way in which it tied together. If you want to be scare this is a must read for you. Not for the weak at heart.
Some of it was a bit creepy and bothersome but it did keep me reading and engaged for the most part. A truly wonderful and interesting plotline. It was dark and suspenseful and hard to stop reading. Thank-you for sharing your story with me.
Author of "So, You've Been Diagnosed with a Mental Illness...Now What?"
I love how every chapter is a patient's letter/story. They all read differently and that's a cool twist because if you don't like the way one is written, don't worry because the syntax and life story changes w each patient's account of how they ended up at Emerson Rose. As you read on you can see more of each patient through the eyes of others which helps to clarify things when your brain can't quite make the leap on its own (ie. The southern belle who believes she is beautiful is thought to look hideous to others).
It's a good book; I'd recommend it with the warning that you don't get answers in the end- it's more a collection of patients life stories.

This is clearly a self-published novel. The editing is very poor in some places--there are actual page numbers left in from the manuscript or first edition. Read morePublished 1 month ago by gypsyrebel
