Id


Out on Kindle (limited release)

A dark, disturbing, gruesome and mind-bending psychological thriller. 


Brief Synopsis

This is a novel about a man.  A man who can’t remember anything about himself.  He knows only one thing: he feels an uncontrollable urge to kill.

Stepping back through time, Id will take you on a journey into the dark, complex, nightmarish place that the man finds himself in, both physically and mentally.

Get inside the mind of a killer—inside the mind of ‘the man’.  Lose yourself in the mystery and the terrifying darkness.

Inside all of us, there is a monster.



Useful Definitions

ID (abbr.): identification (identity)

Identification (psychology): Identification is a psychological process whereby the subject assimilates an aspect, property, or attribute of the other and is transformed, wholly or partially, after the model the other provides.

Id: The id is the unorganised part of the personality structure that contains a human's basic, instinctual drives... It is the source of our bodily needs, wants, desires, and impulses, particularly our sexual and aggressive drives.


"It is the dark, inaccessible part of our personality... we call it a chaos, a cauldron full of seething excitations..."

—Sigmund Freud on the Id (1933, New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis)



Warning(s)

This novel is not suitable for children or adults with a weak or sensitive disposition—Id contains graphic descriptions of violent acts, and some readers may find certain other aspects of the book (either relating to the protagonist or his situation) to be of a disturbing nature.



Note(s)
Id flows in reverse chronological order.  It is possible to read the book in reverse chapter order (making it flow in forwards chronological order); however, Id is intended to be read as per the listed chapter order.

Id is written in British English.  While this is generally very similar to, for example, American English, there are a number of differences in spelling, grammar and punctuation, which may at first glance appear incorrect to a non British reader.

Book Length: 51,000 words (approximately 135 paperback pages)
