Freewill - Chris Lynch This is a short book that can be read in a single sitting, but it can also be pretty emotionally draining. I was a little put-off at first by the odd style of writing; the narrative is done in second person, but I got used to it after a while, and it does well with exhibiting the protagonist's implied schizophrenia. It was unlike any book I have ever read in the way the narrative was presented, the plot is never really explained, the entire narrative takes place in a very surreal way inside the protagonist's head, it's simply put there for you to figure out with a very unique semi-conscious and typically philosophical writing style.
