Neo-Noir Fiction: Story-telling’s New Black!
Neo-Noir Fiction is about to get a big shake up in a new novel titled SEETHINGS (by Australian Author Michael Forman.)
If you’re the kind of reader who’s inclined to venture past the shelves of biographies and romance novels, one ‘bump in the night’ kind of story ready to set the weirdness scale to a factor of nine comes in the form of this little number ` SEETHINGS.
Neo-Noir fiction has given us other novels such as Shutter Island, Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River.
Neo-Noir differs from other crime genres. Rather than following the investigative side of a narrative, Noir-Neo allows a reader to adopt a unique perspective to the crime being committed through the criminal’s eyes – allowing one to experience the raw motives behind evil. They ride shotgun and are able to watch the destruction taking place as it happens.
Michael Forman’s novel SEETHINGS does just that. It’s powerful, ominous and takes a deeply insidious behind-the-scenes look at the darker side of romantic affairs, sex and sexless marriages.
The struggle between an idyllic romance and marriage practicality reaches it’s zenith in an explosive ending you won’t ever see coming. (See reader reviews here)
