Trauma by Patrick McGrath (2)
I like happy books. When I read a book (or watch a movie or TV program) I want it to be interesting and help me feel better. I want to maintain an optimistic view in spite of all the problems of the world. Trauma by Patrick McGrath is not a happy book. Charlie is a psychiatrist and has many issues dealing with his early family life, marriage, lovers, and other people. All the characters in this book are extremely troubled. The only reason that I finished this book is that it is quite short and I wanted to see if it had a happy ending. (It didn't!) I'm glad I finished it and now I'll read something that makes me feel better!
