I love epistolary fiction! I ordered this one off Amazon in 2012 and am giving it a quick reread before sending it off.

Bringing this along to the Boston Bookcrossers meeting this afternoon for trading. If no one takes it then it'll come back home with me.

I got this book at today's Meetup at the Porter Square Panera. (It was a lovely meetup, with some new faces as well as old friends; thanks to all! And it was great to finally meet you, Iddylu - not least because I seem to have grabbed so many of the books you brought {wry grin}!)

I love epistolary fiction too, especially with a found-document format, so when I saw this one I pounced on it. The Lovecraftian influence doesn't hurt either!

Later: Nice little creepy story, with the fragmentary records and increasingly disturbing notes building to a very unnerving climax. There's a lot of misdirection as to who or what is causing the bizarre events in the asylum, and plenty of clues as to what's really going on; I was a bit late in figuring this out myself, but did spot a couple of things before the materials spelled them out.
