"I am not crazy.

I’ve had some issues. That I won’t deny. But am I crazy? I suppose that’s going to be up to you to figure out.

This is what happened to me around the time of my high school reunion. This is what I did, and why I did it. The story not only of that reunion and the events surrounding it, the ones you’ve probably read about in the papers,

As an avid reader, there are few things as pleasing as discovering a new talent.
At the time of writing this review, there has been only 10 ratings for this book.
I can't even begin to tell you how I discovered it in the first place. My brain tends to make some very random connections at times and I do find myself in lonely territory from time to time. The blurb got my attention immediately and the price was low, so I took a chance.
And, DAMN, everybody - let me tell you what an unexpe

A smooth, easy, quick (haha!) read from John Quick. The Journal of Jeremy Todd is a novel narrated by a madman who seeks revenge for a life of torment. This novel is told via a series of journal entries and largely works well. The writing style is very easy to digest and though it takes a little while for this particular broth to come to the boil, the payoff at the end was gruesomely good. I read this quickly and enjoyed my time inside the mind of this American psycho and have no hesitation in r ...more

Unnerving Magazine Review
The Journal of Jeremy Todd has a real what-if-Carrie-White-was-a-dude-and-didn’t-destroy-the-town kind of feel to it. Jeremy Todd lacks the mental tools fitted to Carrie White, but the vibe is similar: tormented, terrified, a school celebration impending, and told it a somewhat unconventional mold, complete with reports and notes.
The diary looks back while simultaneously looking to the current as Mr. Todd begins to unravel further from his already harried exi

This was an excellent book from John Quick. It's a crazy story and the horror scenes brought back memories of his debut, Consequences. My review is here https://wp.me/p5t5Tf-1Od

Disturbing. Disturbing. Disturbing. Did I mention that this was disturbing, oh and rather awesome as well! Go read it and get disturbed.

I read this one based on another review and it didn’t steer me wrong. This was a good read, and the journal style really worked. The peek inside of the mind of someone who believes he’s thinking clearly but is doing some pretty horrible things was well done. His slide into more and more depravity happened gradually as I imagine it can. There’s some pretty brutal stuff here so be warned.
But if you;]’re open to that it’s a very good read.
Also, if, like me, you’re using a kindle or other dev

As proof, he will explain how he suffered Consequences, transcribed The Journal of Jeremy Todd, and regaled the tale of Mudcat. He lives in Middle Tennessee with his aforementioned long-suffering wife, two exceptionally patient kid ...more
