4.0 out of 5 stars Freaky, disturbing and satisfying
A woman obsessed with her body and on the breadline; a controlling and extremist man obsessed with female bodybuilders, with winning, and with unsettlingly kinky sex. A whole host of drugs, and the extreme diet you eat to go with them. What does this do to your relationship with yourself, your loved ones, and with the world around you? Every facet of Aurora's life is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Weird
For some reason I thought this was not a work of fiction, not sure why, so was slightly dissapointed when it arrived.

It was an ok read, bit weird tho.

This review is from: Chemical Pink (Paperback)
A woman obsessed with her body and on the breadline; a controlling and extremist man obsessed with female bodybuilders, with winning, and with unsettlingly kinky sex. A whole host of drugs, and the extreme diet you eat to go with them. What does this do to your relationship with yourself, your loved ones, and with the world around you? Every facet of Aurora's life is drawn into the strange, intense and claustrophobic world of female bodybuilding Arnoldi describes. Gradually, she loses her independence, her daughter and her ability to think for herself.

This is a good, compelling read. Arnoldi has the knack of getting inside each of the main characters' heads in turn and making their behaviour seem sane and rational (or rationalised), at least until you turn the page and see it from someone else's point of view. What will all these characters' obsessions do to them? You find out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Horribly beautiful , a grotesque masterpiece, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chemical Pink (Paperback)
This is a brilliant novel , I wonder why I have never ever read it before ; its weird but in a wonderful way that grabs your attention and screams filth and Poe and de Sade and pvc clothes and domination and creep . Not since Christopher Fowlers early horror have characters been so horribly beautiful ; Charles a rich loner obsessed by making the woman of his body building dreams and Aurora an innocent Frankensteins monster who is pumped full of steroids , shaved , squeezed and makes a pact with the devil in order to win the body building competition of her dreams . Utterly marvellous .
