What is good and what is evil? What is moral and what is immoral? "A Confession"walks the fine line between these arbitrary descriptions, while taking us through the memories of an unnamed narrator, a man who, while having lived a life of confident righteousness, now questions the very fiber of what he is made. How far is he willing to go to clear his conscience? And what if seeking absolution means destroying the entire world of the people around him? It's a dilemma that many of us have come or will come across in our lives, that will make more logical sense as the story progresses. Will our narrator make decisions based on emotion or logic? While the combination of the two is very powerful, individually they both just pale in comparison.Which route will he take in his journey? This exciting philosophical fiction book promises to leave both the narrator and reader baffled and questioning if indeed any of us can claim to be truly good. This is the kind of enthralling book that you'll have to take a few days off work to finish all at once!

We start the story with the narrator asking “Am I a good person?” We then follow along as he talks about different experiences in his life, some good, some bad and some questionable. But as you read you are drawn into this life. Yes, he does things that make you wonder about him yet before you start judging him he also points out that we have done stupid and questionable things in our own lives. This story is engaging and makes you think about both the narrator’s life. I admit that I was not very fond of the narrator and the choices he made in life. But as you read the pieces of the puzzle for the narrator’s life start to fall into place and quickly you come to a surprising ending that wraps everything up nicely. I really enjoyed reading this book. This is one book that will make you think more about yourself and the things you have done in your life. Could you ask yourself “Am I a good person?” and have an honest answer like the narrator has done in this book? I received A Confession for free from Sage’s Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.
A Confession is brilliant! It literally had me on the edge of my seat. I was mesmerized by the writing of this novel, it pulled me in. The psychological aspect of A Confession is insane! I have never loved a nameless character more! Honestly, A Confession is full with intensity and at some parts I got the chills. Just the mannerisms and how this man would talk to the reader is just so strange. I don't know how else to describe it. I love that this book was focused on the more psychological side of the character, than a thriller part. A Confession reminded me of a Stephen King novel, which I love, just the right amount of twists. This book makes you think, throughout the book I tried to put together all the pieces of this man's life. Putting the puzzle together. Honestly, hands down one of the best books I've read this past couple of months, and I read a lot and probably the best psychological book I have read! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a mind experience because that's what you'll get in A Confession! Five stars!
A Confession is a wild ride. The title is very fitting as readers are immediately introduced to a man who is feeling the need to divulge some experiences he has had throughout life. It felt like a mix of diary-style writing with some memoir and fiction mixed in. Honestly, I did not like this man very much, but the author's engaging writing kept me hanging on for more. I was hooked enough that I needed to find out where this strange man was taking us. At times, I got lost in the story of his life, forgetting he was retelling these moments. I never ever saw the ending coming, so kudos to the author. I believe in spoiler-free reviews which means I will not peep what the ending holds, but I will say it is awesome and unexpected. This is a twisted, psychological story that left me a little haunted by this unknown stranger.
