Wish Her Safe at Home by Stephen Benatar

Wish Her Safe at Home - Stephen Benatar, John Carey

Initially, I liked the writing style, though it seemed like certain details were skipped over in ways that it was assumed the reader would want to figure out. The plot seemed interesting at first, but eventually, I just didn't like it. Seeing the narrator's connection to reality unravel was really unpleasant.
