One of the most macabre and disturbing books I have read in a very long time, had trouble putting it down.

This is a good novel, but ebon black is not dark enough to describe the mood. If you're in the mood for a depths of depravity look at humanity, this is the perfect book for it. It depressed and saddened me too much to finish it.

I cannot express how much I found this book disturbing. I'm used to Poppy Z Brite writing about blood and sex, but this book takes a turn that the weak of stomach should not take. I had heard that she used what she thought serial killers much feel-Jeffrey Dahmer-how they must develop an uncontrollable desire to caress, smell, taste their victims entrails.

The first Poppy Brite book I ever read...but definately not the last. This book was something I couldn't put down. I loved it! Brite has a twisted mind that has me searching for more and more unusaul things to read.
