Book Review: Brief Pose by Wesley McCraw

What if an advertising campaign was so effective it drove the public insane? 

An interesting story about a not totally unbelievable advertising campaign that causes mass obsession, riots and murders.
The character’s struggle with depression and loneliness is well portrayed and the ensemble of side characters are unique and develop along with the story. What I think was supposed to be a twist towards the end was a little obvious but it wasn’t annoying at all.

FAVOURITE LINES:

Sadness is something you go through. Grief is a concrete slab that pins you down. It doesn’t just disappear. Grief takes a black marker to any idea of hope. It crosses off anything that once made you happy. The ink is permanent. It stains every part of your day

Depression, the comforting water in which I swim, is a convenient excuse not to care about anything

3.5/5
