So, since I haven't mentioned it before, recently, I moved. I took a certain book with me, out of the hundreds my parents and I had had in the
basement of our house, because it caught my eye and I felt like I should probably give it a look-see. It's Hostage to the Devil
Martin. Who, I know, was discredited due to his apparent deviant romantic and/or sexual behaviors with women. Or so they say.
Regardless, even though I'm only up to page 82, from personal experience I can say that the author is certainly telling the truth about a great deal
of things. While I may have a slightly different outlook on things, I can still appreciate the verity of the message thus far in the book.
It was published in 1992--and I assume that's the year we bought it because it looks to be about that age. I, myself, was born in 1991. It looked
previously-read, but not un-new. The thing is: neither of my parents recognize it or remember reading it. Neither does my aunt (who lived with us for
a period of time when I was younger), nor is she the type of person who would want to read something like this in the first place.
The only person we can think of is my parents' close friend, S. Who they still have to ask about the book.
But so far, it's a mystery.
Despite some misgivings because of the definite strangeness of the situation, as an avid bookworm, I cannot shy away from such an interesting read.
Plus, I have some personal reasons for wanting to know more about this kind of thing. Already, I have read verification of a number of things, which
always comes as a relief, of course.
I don't really have a reason for posting this other than to share because I promised to share if anything weird ever happened to me again.
I have a month left until school begins again for me, so I plan on finishing it soon, since I'm horribly bored.
Cool thing, though, is that I'm living in this really fancy and new place. It's the perfect environment for reading something unsettling because it's
so tranquil and clean.
Anyway, before I talk your eyes off, I'll be sure to let you know what I end up finding out. In the meantime, your thoughts?
Love you, ATS.
