|About the Book|
From Schlossers Spooky Indiana, I had the pleasure of reading The Face. In this short narrative, the reader is placed inside the mind of a sadistic medical student. He meets a girl with the curliest hair and longest eyelashes and instantly falls in love. The only problem is that he is completely and utterly obsessed with his new lover. Whats even worse is that Sheila, his lover, loves him back too! This was scary because this nameless medical student is clearly crazy. Every time he sees Shelia having a friendly and harmless conversation, he reacts by shouting and acting as if Sheila belongs to him. Fed up with Sheilas imaginary infidelity, the medical student kills Sheila in a gory manner, splattering her intestines all over the dorm. But of course, he couldnt stop there. Oh, no! Theres a plot twist... Wait for it, he cuts off her face. Cuts. It. Off. Clean. And does he throw it away? No, here is evidence that he might be completely and totally normal... He puts it in his top drawer, right next to his Tighty-Whities... Of course, hes locked up and sent to a psychiatric asylum where he meets his daddy dearest. Nice family... real nice.
