Can't put me back in the wallpaper…

This short novella has too many unanswered questions. It's a slightly scary book because of the mysteriousness of it. Is the lady speaking to the 'dead paper' sane at first and then slowly spirals into madness; or was she insane from the very start? And is the speaker the woman who is the said wife of 'John'; or the creeping woman in the wallpaper?!? ARGH! it's epicly frustrating however the book does fulfil it's main purpose: An insight to what women in the 18th-19th century had to go through to cure their 'slight hysteria' (post natal depression) due to the arrogance of the men at the time. A must read! (But the full effect of it hits you after a second or third thorough read)
