This book felt like I was witnessing an acid trip by reading about it. It was weird, really weird.
I read the reviews on the back of the book before reading the story and saw things like, 'satire', quoted. I didn't find any satire qualities in it at all. Unless my understanding of the term is wrong, but there was no comedic parts. Not satire or otherwise. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
It reminded me of that movie, Six Degrees of Separation, only odder and forever separated. It just never came together for me.
I like the gruesome nature of the story. I just wish the majority wasn't so strange.
