I haven't read such a powerful book in a long time. This should go down as a classic of horror along with Dracula, Frankenstein and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Simply amazing prose and story!

Myth brought to life of piss and carnage

I really didn't like the book overall. I felt the author was obsessed with piss and phalluses. The interludes of myth, which were brilliant and engrossing were too brief to make up for the overall sense of disgust I walked away from the novel with. The author's points about female enslavement and power dynamics felt heavy handed and overall false. It just didn't work for me. Sad because some of the writing was just beautiful.

very odd

This is a very odd story, there were a lot of aspects that I liked, but many parts felt like they went on too long. As much as I think many authors detrimentally avoid talking about bodily fluids and functions, the author went to far in the other direction and described everything in an almost fetishistic manner, and does not seem to know a single synonym for shit or piss. The setting and interesting structure of the story telling were probably the best parts, but weren't enough to overcome the tediousness and I found myself struggling to finish listening. The readers are very good though and I would definately listen to other books narrated by them.

Hard to get into...

and even harder to continue with. Although I can appreciate the overall reading of this story it did not keep me interested at all. Nothing about it made me want to continue. Hopefully I can finish it eventually.
