Publisher's Summary

A psychological thriller before its time, James Hogg’s Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner, published in 1824, takes us back to the world of 18th-century Scotland, into a mind haunted by religious obsession, and driven to commit murder. The events are told from several different viewpoints, so that truth and reality appear to dissolve in this disturbing story of the dark legacy of Calvinist doctrine, and how it led one man to madness.

Misunderstood and neglected for more than a century, The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner is now regarded as a classic of the supernatural, comparable with Frankenstein, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, or Dracula.

    Story
    "Chapter 33....."

    .....where the story becomes so thick with Scottish dialect I'm afraid I've had to give up because I can't understand what's being said anymore. Until then I'd persevered with the difficulty level as I found the tale to be fascinating and complex, but it might as well be in Cantonese from Chapter of 33 onwards as far as I am concerned. A bit deflated that I'm not going to get to the end, too late to return for a refund. Shame!
