Web Of Desire (Nexus)
Web Of Desire (Nexus)

5.0 out of 5 stars From dull to depraved, 27 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After hearing her friend boast of her sexual adventures, innocent young Mandy is inspired to seek out some adventures of her own. Mandy's journey from sexually naive to salacious nymphomaniac incorporates a variety of sex acts, including girl on girl, threesomes, gangbangs, golden showers, double penetation and baby fetishism. Ray Gordon uses beautifully brutal explicit language to create prolonged descriptions of Mandy's depraved activities, which help to create agonisingly hot mental images in glorious technicolour. Truly inspirational.

3.0 out of 5 stars from sexual prude to salacious nympho, 27 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trail of Sin (Nexus) (Paperback)
Having been repeatedly mistaken for another girl by various men, adopted Ali begins to suspect that she has an unknown twin who is possibly identical and definately an absolute slut. Seeking the truth, Ali adopts the other girl's persona and becomes 'Innocent Ali' by day and 'Ali the Slut' by night but it isn't long before her newly found love of degenerate sex is blurring the boundaries between the roles. Obviously a fan of method acting, Ali thrives on prostituting her teenage body to satisfy her rampantly nymphomanical needs, largely to men old enough to be her father (adding a whole new meaning to 'Age Concern').

Ali's rapid transformation from painfully prudish student to sexually instatiable prostitute is told in lengthy passages of the characteristically blistering explicit language that makes Ray Gordon such an inspiring read at bedtime. Or any other time.

Ali's acts don't provide as much sexual variety as there is in 'Web of Deceit' but has a firmer background story that becomes more sinister as Ali becomes more 'talented'. Featuring the usual oral, anal, girl on girl, even a fivesome. It may be especially appealing to younger women who like much older men, or older men who like much younger girls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Queen calandar, 23 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for an avid Queen fan as a gift. This one actually has space for practical use as a calandar (some are a massive picture with a tiny line of dates at the bottom). The pictures are a mix of black and white and colour, individual Freddie shots and group shots, '70s and '80s. The only thing that might irk die hard Queen fans is the inclusion of a picture including a 'Freddie replacement' in one of the later months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be afraid. . ., 19 Aug 2010
This review is from: Breathe: A Ghost Story (Paperback)
Cliff McNish has earned my eternal gratitude for writing such an exemplary wonder of a book, a truly satisfying ghost story that I can imagine earning the envy of Henry James. So many so-called ghost stories are frustratingly anti-climatic but McNish enveloped me in an atmosphere heavy with a delicious supernatural chill that scuttled up and down my spine, just like the fingers of the terrifyingly portrayed Ghost Mother on the souls of her victims. . .

Tarantula

4.0 out of 5 stars One Scary Spider, 19 Aug 2010
This review is from: Tarantula (Paperback)
The real tarantula is the relish with which Jonquet presents his deliciously deviant, Noir-like world, immersing you in quietly terrifying ideas which ensnare your imagination. His masterly manipulation of words constructs a plot concerned with the forced re-invention of a captive and is permeated by a air of sinister, psychologically thrilling unease. The gradual dismantling of an individual's nature and physical self, the speed at which free will and personality ebbs away, leaving only an empty shell that's vulnerable to re-creation at the hands of a Frankenstein - this is Jonquet's domain.


In The Miso Soup
In The Miso Soup
by Ryu Murakami
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.29

4.0 out of 5 stars Great psycho fiction, 19 Aug 2010
This review is from: In The Miso Soup (Paperback)
It blew me away with the force of an AK-47 and in it I found my favourite fictional psychopath! Murakami's managed to carry off the difficulty of penning a psychological thriller with an apparent ease and panache that makes it very special. To manipulate the mind of a reader with mere words must require immense talent, judging by the amount of 'psychological thrillers' that have left me cold. But the hold of psycho Frank upon Kenji grows in tandem with Murakami's on his reader as the sinister atmosphere gains momentum, until you are as much under Murakami's control as Kenji is under Frank's.


The Amulet Of Samarkand (Bartimaeus Trilogy)
The Amulet Of Samarkand (Bartimaeus Trilogy)
by Jonathan Stroud
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars If you only read 1 kids' book in your life, make it this one, 26 July 2010
If you only read one children's book in your life, make it this one. The sheer scope of Stroud's imagination is terrifying in its brilliance. I tried to prolong the time I spent with the gloriously sarcastic Bartimaeus but I just could not put it down. And I'm jealous that you have all this to come. Thank god it's part one of a trilogy. . .
