This book is disturbing. It is the third book by Joyce Carol Oates I have read and it did not let me down. Q__ P__ (as he refers to himself) lives his life with one desire, to create a human zombie. He plots and plans, describes meaningless daily activities, and considers the past. This is written in a very stream-of-consciousness style. He works towards his goal in earnest and the results are grotesque.

It is hard to say that I enjoyed reading this book, but I'm not sure something like this is meant to be enjoyed...exactly. It is interesting and definitely worth the read, especially if you are a fan of Oates...or psychopaths...
