The Appointment

This quick listen packs a punch. Intense and dark with biting humor that often caught me off guard, the novel is a stream-of-consciousness monllogue of a patient talking to a doctor during an examination. Through the monologue, we learn about the patient's history, fantasies, and self-image. Sometimes disturbing and always riveting, this psychological journey is well worth the listen. I highly recommend it, and can't wait for more from Katharina Volckmer. Recommended by Nancy. The book is available in the store, or you can listen to the audio book here and support the Raven.
