Review: It seems inappropriate to call The Yellow Wall-Paper for “fun”, but… it’s fun. It’s a bite-sized short phycological thriller which probably needs to be read twice. As usual with books like this, I think the synopsis gives away more than it should, so if possible I’d go into it blind. But, regardless, it’s a fun mini-thriller, and it makes you think about it for quite a while afterwards.
