it was amazing
bookshelves: sci-fi

Chuck Klosterman's second novel is the story of a psychologist's obsession with her most fascinating patient, told in the form of an unfinished manuscript submitted to her fictional publisher. Dr. Vick is contacted by a mysterious man who wants anonymous therapy over the phone in exchange for cash mailed to her office. Despite her misgivings, professional and otherwise, Vick obliges him and begins work on alleviating his "sensation of guilt" brought on by his "work." She soon finds herself strangely fascinated with the very smart, caustic and delusional man on the other end of the phone. When she finally succeeds in getting him to come to her office for a meeting, the therapy takes a frightening and personal turn. Part thriller, part comedy, and always filled with Klosterman's biting social commentary, The Visible Man is a true pleasure to read and proof that Chuck Klosterman isn't just a critic playing novelist. He's the real deal.
