5.0 out of 5 stars Warning do not read this book., 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Teatro Grottesco (Paperback)
This book should be wrapped in canvas, bound in heavy chains and thrown into the ocean. Ligotti has managed to pen what Lovecraft always teased at behind the scenes, that which cannot be safely written. Now I imagine if you are looking at purchasing some of Ligottis works you possess a certain character, one that seeks darkness in things rather than light, and looks for media to augment this world view. This book represents the step to far. During the reading process you can almost convince yourself that you are ok and you can handle this, but you get to the last story and as tears drip down your face you realize you blatantly cannot.

It's too late for me now having finished the work, but for those reading these reviews there is still time. Thomas Ligotti is a masterful horror writer, but I really wouldn't read him, if I was given the choice again...
