To be honest, I have no strong feelings about this book.

Robert Shearmen clearly has a vivid and twisted imagination, making for a totally unique selection of short stories. I did, however, find them to lack any real substance or meaning, and found that they were often provocative just for the sake of being provocative. 'The Creeping Thing' (the one about the dead cat) maaaay have stirred something deep down in the chasms of my heart, but other than that, I remain unchanged. Also worth nothing that most of these stories contain descriptions of some weird and graphic sex, so if you're a virgin like me you might find that a bit unsettling!! :)

15 year old angsty Kezia probably would have loved this book for its weirdness and its desire to push boundaries. 24 year old Kezia thought it was pretentious, and truthfully, a little bit soulless... 3 STARS!!!
