Okay I just can't do this book. The descriptions are so long and drawn-out they are absolutely ridiculous. Even 100 pages in I am still completely lost as to what exactly is going on. I bailed.
So sad because I had heard such good things about this book that I had better hopes for it.
Also I feel that the over-the-top gore and sexual word usage was purely meant for shock value and filler. Or at least that is the field that the book gives off.

I give very few one-stars, and to be honest, I'm only giving this because I just didn't enjoy reading the book. I understand what the author was trying to do, but the constant barrage of esoteric pseudo-vedic babble made it unenjoyable to follow the plot. Every time the plot would crescendo, it fizzled because the events led not to conclusive events, but rather into a psychotic sort melange of Hindu-Tantra babble.

I don't generally write bad reviews, because I am afraid the author might see them, but I must qualify a one-star. I greatly respect her style and originality. There are precious few new ideas out there in horror, and this one of them. In short, It's me, not you, Haunter - I think I just don't like the Eastern thought Samsara-to-Nirvana rambling. Perhaps it is my dharma. The author does deftly set the desired mood, and I intend to give her another chance!… (lisätietoja)

The Good: Disgusting, disturbing, and utterly twisted, fans of really hardcore horror will love This Symbiotic Fascination. Everything about this book is extreme and graphic and over the top. You feel like you are in this middle of this book, living this nightmare. Totally in your face, engrossing.

The Bad:This book is so extreme, it occasionally feels like Jacob is trying too hard to shock readers. The writing and plot progression don't feel natural a lot of the time. And honestly, once a little time has past, the story itself is forgettable. All that you take away from this book is the skin crawling feeling you got while reading it.… (lisätietoja)
