Edward Lee is one of my favorite horror authors. I had just finished "Flesh Gothic" and was looking forward to the same chills and stomach-turning images in "Monstrosity". Unfortunately, I spent the majority of my time flipping through the pages thinking, "What the *%^$ is going on?" and then when all was revealed - let's just say the ending was a major letdown. Definitely not your typical Edward Lee.
I gave it two stars because the side bits with the 'necks and other minor characters were rather good. Mutant roaches? Giant eels? Loved it! Too bad the rest of the story flopped.
Needless to say, this will not keep me from reading another Edward Lee novel.
Blue Skies, palm trees and flawless white sand beaches. Clare thinks her new
home is paradise and her brand new job as security chief at the clinic
seems too good to be true. It is. But the truth is worse than she could
Lurid dreams, erotic obsessions and twisted fantasies aren't the only thing
that abruptly invade Clare's life. Is someone really peeping into her
windows at night? Yes. Is Clare being stalked? Yes. But not by anything
human. By a monstrosity.
Quick pleasant read despite droning paragraphs of technical stuff. Thoroughly enjoyed and have re-read many times.
The cover of this book almost scared me away. I decided to read it anyway and was hooked. This was my first hardcore horror novel. Lots of sex and gore. Im now a fan of Edward Lee.
"Blue skies, palm trees, and flawless white-sand beaches. Clare Prentiss thinks her new home is paradise, and her brand new job as security chief at the clinic almost seems too good to be true. It is. But the truth is worse than she could ever imagine."
Strong stuff, from a writer who's known for being "out there."
Edward Lee never lets me down with a good horror story and blood and gore to make me cringe.
Great start, but not enough care with the ending.
This book gave me the chills.
