4.0 out of 5 stars thank you, 27 Feb. 2014
This review is from: The Decapaphiliac (Kindle Edition)
There were three stories in this anthology I found particularly interesting, very well written, exciting and moreish, but the namesake of the book I didn’t like much – found it too bizarre and I must agree with another reviewer on here that I didn’t like the cover either; but the cover is no reflection of the writing within.
“The Decapaphiliac” was in my opinion, slap-dashed and I didn’t like it, sorry. **Two star rating
However the second story of the book “The Glasses Adjuster” was brilliant and to me that should have become a lengthier story/novel, I love stories like that; it had a very Neil Gaiman feel to it. ***** Five star rating
“Eurofood drama” I liked a lot, it was thrilling, exciting and well written. **** Four star rating
“The Throgmorton Street driller” was well written but I didn’t enjoy it, although it did portray the fear of being at the dentist quite well, the end was confusing. *** Three star rating
“The Lift “please forgive the pun but I couldn’t get into it. * One star, sorry
“The Dissassociate” I loved because I used to work with people with mental learning difficulties and I too, have spent time in a hospital as a teenager overcoming quite severe post-traumatic stress syndrome, I found it sweet. I knew a girl who didn’t understand money like the character in this story – she used to hand it out to anyone who wanted it and I was forever trying to stop her doing that so she didn’t get into trouble with her social worker. I’ve also found difficulty into getting into work because of my past, so I related to the character very much. ***** Five star rating
“The Editor” I found this interesting but I didn’t really like it as a piece of fiction. *** Three star rating
I also love authors who always have an end note at the back of their books, I really like to get personal with the authors; this is something I aim to do in my books when I get published as I too, am a writer.
You must be a very open/broadminded reader with this author and I am certainly that, I understand strange fetishes as I’ve been involved in certain alternative lifestyles in my life and I met a few weird ex-dates and boyfriends who had even stranger turn-ons than those found in “Decapaphiliac” which could make for good writing in themselves.
You can’t be a person whose easy to shock either, he is a very graphical writer and I glad he stumbled upon me, because without him selecting me for this give-away I doubt I’d ever of discovered him myself.
Thank you Alex 
