Oct 10, 2014As you can see, myself and several members of my reading group downloaded this and read it as our weekly "assignment." I'm happy to report everyone seemed to love it (except a few who seemed bothered by the dismaying finish of the story. Personally, I found it to be a fascinating read with a lot of attention to detail paid to the main characters psychological state (a trait which is far too often ignored in this type of writing). I appreciated this author's "style" and found myself extremely ensconced in the deviant drama of the whole thing. Once a major plot development arrives, you're already quite invested in the character and can understand more deeply his pain and confusion. His sense of betrayal. All-in-all not a pleasant piece of fiction, but without a doubt a worthwhile one and you can be assured we will be reading more works by Ferace in our future meetings. Grade: A.
Oct 10, 2014This is a good one. As I kept reading, there is the rather pleasurable sense of a story that keeps turning around on itself and weaving everything that happens into a complete pretzel shape. There are things that constantly make you stop and wonder what is going on. Over all of this is the uncertainty about how much of this is going on is inside his head and the increasing feeling of something terrible which has happened, but the author is careful not to reveal too much until the eminently disturbing end, which is a total WTF moment.
Oct 10, 2014If you want to read something that keeps you guessing about its ultimate intent, look no further than James Ferace's "Suppression"- a sick little thriller that I just couldn't tear my eyes away from. A young man's been attending therapy for quite some time for apparent mental problems when the therapist seems to start testing the depths of their relationship. Then things start to get strange. I guarantee you won't see this ending coming. Simply fantastic! (IF you're into dark things and aren't afraid of being a little disturbed).
Oct 10, 2014Engagingly malicious thriller, which I felt was very much in the vein of Roman Polanski’s "Repulsion" about a guy whose therapist may not be all that he's cracked up to me. What begins as pretty straight forward soon begins to blur and shifts into some blatantly surreal and upsetting territory. The ending is simply perverse. An excellent read. I'm glad the chairman of my book club recommended it to me. I will certainly be checking out more by this author.
Oct 10, 2014A swift, brutal power play between a shrink and his patient which explodes into a violent altercation of sorts is what awaits you in "Suppression" a morbid tale indeed. When it all arrives at its shocking conclusion, you'll be certain to be questioning everything you read beforehand. Another brilliant psychological shocker from the mind of Ferace. P.S. I had to laugh at someone criticizing the use of "a lot of word" (including the word "exemplar") in this. They're really showing their ignorance with such an idiotic statement.
