Day 33 is a complex psychological murder mystery written by author Aisha Graham. Highly graphic and only suitable for adults, this winding plot follows the interior narrative and exterior life of a young woman named Evita who is going through a hard time in her life. She is clearly traumatized by the death of her mother, Vivian, and even after thirteen years the mystery surrounding her death haunts Evita, both in her waking hours and through terrifying nightmares. As she seeks out therapy with Dr Diana Halal, Evita begins to unlock corners of her mind she didn’t know were even there, and in doing so her journey to self-enlightenment begins, but it won’t be without its costs.

Aisha Graham is clearly a writer concerned very deeply with character rather than the overall plot, so readers who really want to get into the mind of another person are sure to enjoy delving into Evita’s head. Although it’s a reasonably quick read, it’s worth taking the time to slow down and digest Evita’s unfolding feelings to really get the full psychological impact of what she’s going through, and there are times when you might need to put the book down and read something cheerier in between. However, the overall journey that Graham has created is well worth persevering with, because it presents a fascinating work of deep character analysis that will leave you thinking for days afterwards. I’d definitely recommend Day 33 to readers seeking literary psychological fiction that’s unlike anything they’ve read before.
