The Journal of Jeremy Todd has a real what-if-Carrie-White-was-a-dude-and-didn’t-destroy-the-town kind of feel to it. Jeremy Todd lacks the mental tools fitted to Carrie White, but the vibe is similar: tormented, terrified, a school celebration impending, and told it a somewhat unconventional mold, complete with reports and notes.
The diary looks back while simultaneously looking to the current as Mr. Todd begins to unravel further from his already harried existence. The man is a mess without a memory and it’s obvious to the reader he’s absolutely batty. The way the man falls apart is fairly reasonable, pivoting on a change in schedule that draws him away from his meds. Something almost typical it seems when it comes to a particular kind of mind. After that, things go bananas in a way that plays out to excess for the sake of entertainment. Dipping toes into deprivation revenge and something akin to torture porn, this thing brings forth shades of the film Se7en by way of means of destruction, but modernized and expanded upon.
Insanity builds quickly and the story plays out in remembered blips, verging while reading as if happening at the moment seamlessly. The ending was a fun surprise I did not foreseen and really made the story come together. This is a fast-paced journey into the mind of a quirky madman. Entertaining and wonderfully easy to read.
