Another book I stumbled upon at the library was 1996 by Gloria Naylor. I always scan books into the Goodreads app to get a feel for what others thought. This book only had 78 ratings, not that many. The ratings were also all over the place. This intrigued me.
The main character of this book is Gloria Naylor, who is also the author. An award winning author at that. Naylor tells a story of government surveillance, a covert operation which aggressively invades her privacy and life.
I don’t want to give too much away, or anything at all, but I will say the genius behind this book is in the writing. It takes you on a psychological journey of paranoia which becomes slightly more intense with each page turn. Although the book is categorized as fiction you will undoubtedly be left with a feeling that just maybe it is true.
Fiction or not this book does what is intended. It makes you consider the what ifs and leaves you a little bit uncomfortable. I read this book several years ago and it is still fresh in my mind and still pretty disturbing.
