it was ok
bookshelves: 2011, horror

What a misogynistic bunch of tripe. Not one, not two, not three, but four, five, six and more buxom women who are ogled, fantasized about, raped, axed, hanged, and tortured in this southern horror tale. There seems to be two types of women in an Ed Lee book: fuckable, creamy-titted foxes who can't get enough sex in a given day or obese, nagging housewives who make life a living hell for their frustrated husbands. Pass this stinker on by!

I'm giving it two stars because Lee is a wonderful writer in terms of style and grammar. And he's capable of writing much better books such as The Golem and The Black Train.

Maicie Fuckable, creamy-titted foxes? Might be a good Christmas gift for the husband. Love the review.

Tressa Thanks, Macie. I'm sure your husband likes his creamy tits attached to a live woman. For the love of all that is holy, do not give him this for Christmas.

Bark's Book Nonsense Hee, hee. I think my husband read this one and loved it.

Tressa He must love creamy breasteses.

Bark's Book Nonsense He's living vicariously is my guess ;)

Tressa The mailman is bringing it to you, not Superman. Patience is a virtue.

Tim Asbury Damn, the monitor is monitoring all over the place these days.

Tressa Why is that thing called a monitor? It makes no sense.

Maciek is only lurking here because of the off chance creamy breasteses will be mentioned.
