This review is from: Satan Wants Me (Paperback)
I had a weird relationship with this book. It took me a while to get through, it didn't really grip me, and yet, when I finished it I immediately wanted to read it again. There's really two different novels here - one is a Withnail type comedy of late 60s bohemian life, the other is a pretty dark look at Satanism and its insidious power. I found the last few chapters, or diary entries if you will, focused these 2 elements really well - there's black humour, particularly in the acid trips, but, in the real world, some seriously disturbing stuff is going on. Makes you nostalgic for the 60s yet mighty glad it's over.
Recommended for a read - 3.5 stars is probably a fair score.
