Review: The Gown

"Emilie Autumn reinvented the
psychiatric hospital environment."
Leer en español
Read in Spanish

This has been one of the most gothic years of my life, but also a very spiritual and problematic one. However, there has been an ever present anchor that kept me grounded by letting my mind travel without much effort: reading. And there's a name that I keep mentioning lately in my head (or in my Instagram).
The Gown, the most recent story by Emilie Autumn, explores the mysterious illnesses of a nameless girl, who is persecuted by the same gown since she was a child until her adulthood. Despite following her treatments, taking her medications and being transferred to several health professionals, the protagonist continues to see the mysterious robe, and her symptoms get worse over time.
With the same delicate and detailed style that she used for her novel, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls, the author and singer creates a plot as intense as it is short, but provides the reader with a guide to discuss the story with others. I admit there were questions that made me see The Gown from another point of view, but I haven't been able to exchange ideas with anyone so far.
"ElegantGood enough not to live it."
Emilie Autumn reinvented the psychiatric hospital environment that she used before and that she has explored so many times to give it a gloomy aspect, not through a dismal fantasy, but through the unstable realism of a sick human mind. It is at least interesting to see things from this girl's eyes.
The story is read in one sitting, not only for how short and entertaining it is, but also because it is fluid and because of the style the singer uses at all times. Although we are facing an unusual decline, The Gown is still elegant, but without touching the academic or boring.
As expected, I recommend that all the fans of the disturbing, dark and unsettling give that story of Emilie Autumn a chance. Intense, witty and with an unexpected ending that will open up a good conversation. It's one of those stories that stays with you. Good enough not to live it.
