Three things to know before buying,
This review is from: Snuff (Hardcover)
1. This is a very short novella (the text is printed in big type to make for more pages), you'll read it in an hour or so.
2. Once the paper seal is removed the book cover is pornographic. You won't be able to read this on the train, in the office, or whilst your children are around.
3. The 'story' doesn't even start to measure up to the author's earlier stuff. In comparison to books like Invisible Monsters or Survivor this book is very, very weak. There are no skewed ideas to play with, or off the wall revelations to ponder. Even without comparison to earlier books the principles of this short story are 10 years too late to be edgy.
Very disappointing all-round.

The cover is not pornographic, it just has a half naked woman on it. Like what you see on page 3 of the Sun. I don't think you need to worry about people seeing you reading this.

My cover must have been different to yours then! I had a first edition hardback, so perhaps they toned it down for your copy. Mine has a wrap-around cover comprising of a close up of a womans naked breasts and lower sex organs, she's glowing with sweat and sucking her thumb provocatively to simulate the obvious sex act.
Page three of the sun is 'lighthearted breast shots' - the cover of my copy of the book is porn.
