5.0 out of 5 stars Green light to Practice Extreme Domestic Violence or a warning shot across the bow ?, 15 May 2008
This review is from: Out (Paperback)
Well i am now just 50 pages from the end of this book, Its addictive that is for sure. If you are the sort of person that constantly asks why we suffer abuse in our daily lives, why we put up with the tedious endless days of darkness without the hope of anyone to shine a light on our mundane and soul destroying lives, If you are someone that yearns for a crack in the wall if only just to push against it to make it bigger then this is for you... The book is as cold as its cover - these characters are the products of years of exposure the degredation of many different lifestyles and experiences - YET - all the characters are different, very different and thats whats so satisfying form the first. Despite the sterile endless bland backdrop of the story - the factory the housing estates and small minded neighbours - you spend you time thinking what on earth makes these people tick...you wind up bizarrely wondering , maybe i should do that too, step over the line, or maybe by reading the book you aleady have in a way..its a dangerous book - you sympathise with the victims and masochistically want to expereince the brief excitment, fear, loathing and/or pleasure they do before they are snuffed out of existence. You look at your meat differently when you prepare it in the evenings for cooking wondering what you would do if faced with a torso to dispose of .. it goes over the edge - hook like and sinker and you go with it.. its an endless spiral into depravity and chaos and there is no way out...the yearning to be part of , to do or to be the victim off extreme sexualised violence is disturbing and it stays deep in your thoughts as a constancy...if you like feeling the knife edge just a breath away then this book will take you there. Strangly compelling is a need to understand the author - this is not a book written from research or even from expereince of abuse (but i am sure that helps to write this sort of stuff!) - she has written this from desire and that passion hateful and spiteful and destructive that it is , hammeorages form every single page....Outstanding work of the darkest arts..
