A Confession

(2 customer reviews)




William F. Aicher’s A Confession takes a look inside the mind of a nameless man struggling to find meaning in a life that he now questions. Journey with him as he navigates through this crisis by recounting of the choices he has made to a captive. His falling in love with a millennial, a glossy mirror of who he used to be, just adds to his life questions. This timeless internal struggle explores the very definitions of arrogance, freedom, regret, ego, control, public humiliation, and blackmail in the digital age.


ARE WE EVER TRULY GOOD OR BAD? (And just who are we to judge?)
Dive into a gritty, existential thriller of a tale, as an unnamed man sits you down and forces you to bear witness to the deeds and misdeeds of his life.
Act as judge, jury (and executioner?) as this stranger explores key moments in his life, both beautiful and disturbing, which have made him become the man he is today.
Brutally (and at times uncomfortably) honest, you’ll be taken on rollercoaster of a ride as what begins as a simple confession quickly spirals into something much more sinister, and will inevitably make even you begin to question the person you are.
A 21st Century exploration of the themes and challenges of modern society, A CONFESSION will make you think, make you squirm, and  at the end … leave you breathless.

    From Amazon:
    This was one of those rare books that you can really get lost in. It is both a page turner that you feel compelled to get through in a short time, and a work that stays on your mind after finishing it.

    Aicher effectively captures here the contradictions that would come up in any self aware person’s honest answer to the question ‘Am I good person’?

    And still he doesn’t beat you over the head with them…it’s subtle. Like when the storyteller tells about his stint in rehab after getting arrested after a drunken fight with a girl. After bragging about his sobriety and making addictions seem weak, he heads out for a cigarette.

    And another subtle point…people conveniently forget or leave out details when rationalizing things to themselves. Like how he totally leaves out his drunken violence by saying at one point that he hasn’t hurt anyone since his fight as a youth where he attacked the bully who then beat him up.

    The character slowly reveals himself to be deeply flawed yet you can see how it happens from the way his life unfolds. And the ending….unsatisfying at first but on further reflection…perfect. Five stars and can’t wait for the next great work from this talented writer!
