This book could easily be summed up in one word: FUN!

Laura Lee Bahr can really tell a story! In all these pages there was not a wasted chapter, nor wasted word. Her prose is effortless and enjoyable and infinitely readable. It only took me about two days to finish this entire thing, THAT’S how easy of a read this was.

The plot itself seems almost bigger than the mere 200ish pages can contain. It almost reads like a movie with a sprawling ensemble cast, which is fitting since the main character of

Se trata de un libro acerca de la vida y la muerte, acerca de qué tipo de vida queremos vivir y de si merece la pena ser vivida, y se trata de un libro acerca del tiempo, en sus distintas acepciones, tanto literarias como existenciales. Un libro que te cuela todo eso entre medias de una historia delirante, bizarra, loca, con unos personajes salvajes y enfermos, que tienen mucho que decir y muchas maneras de decirlo. Como comentaba al principio, Bahr juega en otra liga. En la que juegan los grand ...more

Sí, y… ¿Nos encontráramos ante una novela casi redonda?
Sí, y… ¿Engancha de principio a fin?
Sí, y... me ha gustado y mucho. Con una buena dosis de Hollywood, sectas, sexo, sangre y vísceras.
Sí, y… aunque con Fantasma Laura no me llegó a la patata (quizás demasiadas expectativas) con Porno religioso improvisado me ha ganado.
Sí, y… es ágil de lectura, capítulos cortos, lenguaje cercano, todo confluye y fluye a una trama sin impedimentos y con un ritmo agradable.
Sí, y… gracias de nuevo a Hugo y Or

Well, that was an odd cookie. Not alienating and definitely a clever cookie, but odd nonetheless. LONG-FORM RELIGIOUS PORN is a shapeless, metafictional literary "thing" tackling themes of longing, loneliness and human suffering, loosely funneled through desire and BDSM sex. I kind of lost the highway early on after the first character shift, wondering what the hell just happened to the story I was reading, but Laura Lee Bahr has a way of writing that makes direct causality not a priority.

The 2nd book from Bahr has certainly rocketed her to the top of my favorite living authors list. Haunt, her debut, was immaculate, magical, and haunting(duh!) and it will always be one of my favorites. Long-Form Religious Porn showcases a whole other area of her expertise, with witty banter, tightly written characters, high stakes, and just plain fun scenarios. And it is that steely character insight that really sets this book apart from the ocean of quasi-pulp bizarro that wishes it could lick ...more

Whatever she writes, I want to read it. Genius.
Tatiana (El Ratón de Alexandria)
Es fascinante como una obra tan kinky, extravagante y tan llena de humor plasma de manera tan real la naturaleza de las relaciones humanas, nuestras propias contradicciones y nuestros miedos y anhelos más profundos.
Eso es lo que le pido a la ficción especulativa por encima de todo: que, envuelto en una capa de limo verde fosforito, me haga reflejarme en un espejo que me muestre mi interior.
¡Vivan Orciny Press y Laura Lee Bahr!

Tiene todo lo que se puede esperar de una novela del movimiento bizarro. Es bestia, cachonda, atrevida y busca siempre la forma de retorcer las formas de la literatura para crear una experiencia distinta. Siempre al límite. Muy recomendable.

Es interesante lo que Laura Lee Bahr cuenta en este libro, sí, pero es mucho más interesante cómo lo cuenta. Cómo nos lleva a través del tiempo y el espacio en un viaje fluído en el que ni falta ni sobra nada. Me temo que esta es una de esas novelas que crecerán en cada nueva relectura. ¡Grande!

This was an odd and kinky comedy -at times completely over the top, and yet fun and smart (this is a Bahr novel anyway, so that's always going to be in there from page 1). "Long-Form Religious Porn" contains all the stuff we might dream of in our reads: a modern vampire cult, a rookie dominatrix, a suicidal math teacher and this ambitious young filmmaker pursuing her dream, all of them awkwardly interacting in Los Angeles. Despite the raunchy scenes, the author spreads some wisdom pearls in here ...more

Hot, kinky & funny but also packed with so much information about the Hollywood industry. Bahr writes some remarkable characters that you can only love while you question them at the same time. She has a special touch depicting the male mind (seriously, Laura, are you sure you were not a man in a previous life?).
I also liked a lot of the scenes and situations in the book, and how they end in a totally unexpected way. And surprises keep coming until the very last page.

He devorado “Porno religioso improvisado” en un par de días, así que mis conclusiones sobre el libro pueden ser poco meditadas, pero ¿Qué importancia tiene ante una novela tan visceral? Laura ha vuelto a atraparme. Esta vez con un relato de vidas cruzadas que se desarrolla en un L.A. dominado por sectas vampíricas, arribistas cinematográficos, terapeutas desequilibrados, tríos amorosos destinados a la tragedia, suicidas en potencia, congregaciones religiosas fanáticas, fetichistas de la podofili

Así pues hay porno duro, hay escenas de reflexión filosófica y hay caricatura de la banalidad humana y su búsqueda del poder. Y lenguaje malsonante, personajes sin escrúpulos y otras muchas cosas que también existen en el mundo real.

Si estás harto de novelas convencionales, si te gusta la erótica pero detestas las escenas ñoñas que siembran el género, si amas los thrillers policiales de fin de semana... Si te gusta cualquiera de estas cosas, Porno religioso improvisado es para ti.

Estoy seguro de que Porno religioso improvisado será una de las mejores lecturas de este año 2018, igual que lo fue Bienvenidos al bizarro el año pasado. El bizarro es un género que nunca decepciona. Aunque quizás no sea para todos los gustos.

What a delightfully subversive novel! Long-Form Religious Porn by Laura Lee Bahr is deceptively conventional at first. We meet one of the main characters right away, Madeline Hunter, who is a struggling writer and director in the tight knit Hollywood film industry. She is trying to make a movie on a shoestring budget and really wants to get George Clooney to star in it. At the same time she is dealing with her gay friend who is caught up in a vampire cult with its teeth proverbially embedded int ...more

I loved this book - LOVED IT! Very funny, very dark but very funny. Great alt-version of the entertainment industry. Couldn't put it down. Highly recommended, especially if you like some dark, edgy, bizarro with great characters, great language, and SO much fun!

Long-Form Religious Porn is a short novel with big ideas that defies easy description and makes ones head spin. This is a novel that I am still trying to wrap my brain around all that happens. Many characters and actions are revealed but you never see the whole story. Rather you are given fragments and it is up to you to figure out the missing parts. But this is done in a perfect way and you never feel cheated. Rather the whole novel is a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions and the entire trip is ...more

Le pondría un 4,5/5 si me dejase GoodReads. Con Fantasma (el primer libro de la autora) en un rincón especial de mi corazón me enfrento a esta segunda novela. Tenia miedo de que no me fuese a gustar tanto, pero ha superado expectativas.

Una espiral temporal, en una narrativa mas “natural”, comparativamente a la primera novela, y en una ambientación tan significativa. Laura Lee Bahr es la reina del bizarro y sabe narrar, absorber e hipnotizar como nadie.

Laura Lee Bahr nos regala en su segunda novela una obra excelente, de esas que dejan huella en el lector. En ella se tratan temas fácilmente identificables con la cara más oscura de la psique del ser humano: fetichismos, BDSM, suicidio... Pero no es solo por los temas por lo que destaca esta novela (que también), sino por la forma en que está escrita: Lee Bahr deja tras sus líneas una estela que indica que nada sobra y que tampoco falta nada. Todo esto se completa con la siempre fiable traducció ...more

Brutal murder! Uncomfortable sex! Religious cults! Vampire cults! Vince Vaughn!

If any of these topics strike your fancy, then this book is for you. Laura Lee Bahr is the real deal when it comes to bizarro fiction. Not a single word is wasted here. Fantastic stuff.

Este es el segundo libro que leo de esta autora y vende más de lo que luego ofrece. Me ha resultado incluso tonto y flojo, y que es más postureo y marketing que literatura.
