Horrifically good Absolutely horrifying I don t know if I ll manage to sleep tonight Love the writing style, it was very engaging and easy to read If you re anything like me, when you drive past a car crash there s a sick compulsion to look and absorb every horrific detail Old, decrepit psychiatric hospitals give me that same feeling I know asylum conditions were vile and treatments were closer to torture than health care, but when I see anything on the subject I can t look away This strange impulse is what drew me to The Meyerstown Secret.The book unfolds as a series of interviews, police records, and diary entries, lifting the veil on If you re anything like me, when you drive past a car crash there s a sick compulsion to look and absorb every horrific detail Old, decrepit psychiatric hospitals give me that same feeling I know asylum conditions were vile and treatments were closer to torture than health care, but when I see anything on the subject I can t look away This strange impulse is what drew me to The Meyerstown Secret.The book unfolds as a series of interviews, police records, and diary entries, lifting the veil on what took place inside the walls of the Meyerstown Psychiatric Hospital from the 1890s through to its closure and demolition Misuse of pharmaceuticals, dental procedures as punishments, and medical experimentations are just a few of the tamer stories divulged by former staff members The exploitation of patients is revealed in graphic detail, and I would not recommend having a snack while reading this book But author Howard Carlyle hasthan just a large dose of Splatterpunk in this work.One of the sections I most enjoyed was the diary of Susan Dewer After passing away in a nursing home, suffering from alcoholism, Susan s written account of her days working in the Meyerstown kitchen is discovered Through her own words we see this young woman s attitude toward patients morph from compassion to apathy, and ultimately to complete disdain.While stories like Susan s and grotesque incidents, like three escapees on a murderous rampage, certainly had me engrossed and flipping pages as quickly as I could, there were a few aspects of this book I disliked Most sections begin with a little background on what is to follow, a warning that the contents might be disturbing, and that the interview transcript or diary entry has not been altered or changed from what really took place I could probably forgive a brief preamble to set up context, but the rest felt a little like shouting, I know it s true because it happened to my friend s cousin s cousin Whether I m reading fact or fiction, thetime the writer spends away from the action my interest begins to wane and what follows loses credibility.Overall, The Meyerstown Secret is a good read And, if you re one of those people who can t look away from the depths of human depravity, then take a stroll through this abominable hospital Disclaimer I received a copy of this work by the author in exchange for an honest review This review first appeared on kendallreviews.com
