Other World By Garden Urthark
The book, which follows the character Moody Santo is an original story of a man with a mental illness who is trying to fit in with society. However, he has delusions which inhibit his ability to adapt into what most would consider “normal society.” In addition, he performs heroic acts.
This was a very interesting, mainstream book. It is definitely one of the only types of books I have ever read. I immediately connected with the main character and felt for him as he tries to avenge his brother’s death and deal with his illness. What I liked most was that you didn’t know if the character was performing said heroic acts on his own accord or if his mental illness contributed to this.
I also like how the love interest was present in the book to top off of his other problems. It made the character seem more fleshed out and real. During times you could imagine the character being a normal man in society and then in other times his mental illness was so apparent it was startling.
This book kept me on my toes the whole time and I think Garden Urthark is a very talented author.
