Shocking is an understatement—this is borderline brilliant, vulgar humor.

RALPH PINCUS, OCCULTIST EXTRORDINARE is a fun adventure about the modern man that doesn’t seem to meet the general standard set by society. Ralph Abner Pincus is a grown man. A self-described “Jew with a receding hairline” and one exceptional quality, he’s “the only Jewish person in a room.” It seems that Ralph has exactly zero redeeming qualities in the beginning, he’s the type of man who might find himself reading a Nicho
I attempted to read this but I just couldn't keep track of the characters with all the choppy sectioning. I suppose this is one of those stories where you just need to sit down for the afternoon and plow on thru it. Maybe I'll pick it up and try again another time.

Meh. I have too many other books to read.

I'm not great at reviews but here goes......I won this book in a good reads contest and the warning letter I received from the author along with the book kind of made me put it up on the shelf for awhile, but the letter also made my curiosity drive me completely insane. I finally decided to grab it off the shelf....and didn't regret one moment of it. Automatically, the book caught my attention there was a few parts in the book that made me laugh out loud. If you don't have an open mind and a ...more

First off, this is not the book you were expecting. Second, it is an incredibly racey and enticing story that keeps you guessing all the way till the end. I had a great time reading this book and would have read it in one sitting had I not been interrupted by sickness. Ralph Pincus gets caught up in a strange tale he didn't realize would take him for the ride of this life. Marcus writes as if he's sitting next to you telling you the story as he sees it. The random facts and editor notes add a ...more

If you are the kind of person who reads a whole book in one sitting (I rarely do that myself, and didn't do that here, though I kinda wanted to), you'll rip right through this one. It comes with disclaimers, and yeah, it's got sex, violence, gore, and some non-conventional portrayals of Jesus, but really it's all pretty darn funny, and the disclaimers seemed unnecessary to me (or perhaps I'm just hard to shock these days). Once I grew accustomed to some jarring transitions I felt quite at home ...more

This was not a bad book. There were parts that were funny, and the author had a sense of humor I liked. The description is maybe the best example. "Christians, you have a new savior. Don't worry. This one's Jewish too." made me laugh out loud

But I thought it needed a lot of work. Many scenes were tough to visualize what was happening (I thought the action, the surroundings were too light on showing). The characters mostly seemed "faceless", and they were introduced one after the other so it was

I received my copy off of Goodreads First Reads. I wanted to like the book, but I just couldn't get into it. The writing didn't grip me. I normally like dark occult books, but I think it just didn't have that "is it real" feeling that I normally enjoy in occult books.

I wanted to like this book. By its description, it seemed like the sort of thing I'd want to read. Maybe it was intended as a parody of something I haven't read?
