"Outsider" by W. Freedreamer Tinkanesh, provides a fascinating ride through the minds of multiple abstract characters, and their interactions with one another. Although, at times the characters' stray thoughts and actions are fierce, even terrifying, the penetrating glimpses into the world of alternative lifestyles and beautifully constructed obsessions make the story impossible to put down ... no matter how horrified the reader may be. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the world of 'so called' aberrant behaviours and desires; but beware, Tinkanesh, will take you to a place, where you will ultimately identify with her characters ... in ways that you never expected.
