The OCD Chronicles: Fear and Loathing on the Psychiatrist’s Couch is a work of fiction in the literary drama subgenre. It is suitable for the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Stuart Chapman. In this riveting drama, we see our central protagonist Stan becoming hyperfocused on finding and murdering the sexual predator he remembers from his childhood. But as his quest leads him to a psychiatrist with secrets of his own, there follows an unlocking of all that is latent and shadowed in Stan’s psyche, and from there the journey becomes much more about the lies we weave for ourselves and others, and how the truth always comes out in the end.
In the truest tradition of literary fiction, this is a story that hits you from a unique angle, and one which requires a little perseverance to really begin to see the true beauty it holds. Cleverly penned with initially quite unlikeable characters, author Stuart Chapman holds a masterclass in suspense and intrigue, making readers too fascinated by these bizarre characters to look away, until they’ve somehow wormed themselves into your heart and you cannot let them go. I also found the portrayal of OCD habits and behaviors to be astute and well-researched, and it felt like a genuine character quality rather than some gimmick added to make the book “quirky”. As such, I’d highly recommend The OCD Chronicles to fans of character-driven literary dramas, and for those seeking an author with ideas as original and unique as his writing style.
