Every Fifteen Minutes
St Martin's Press 2015
I'm a sociopath. I look normal, but I'm not. I'm smarter, better, and freer, because I'm not bound by rules, law, emotion, or regard for you.
I can read you almost immediately, get your number right away, and push your buttons to make you do whatever I want. I don't really like you, but I'm so good at acting as if I do that it's basically the same thing. To you.
I fool you.
I fool everybody.
What do you think? Would you read on? Have you already read this one? There is a quote in the front of the book that got me thinking.
Unexpressed emotions will never die.
They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.
-- Sigmund Freud
I haven't started this book yet, but I have a hunch that the first two paragraphs and the Freud quote are connected.
