Scott Essel Pratt is a twisted individual. In a good sort of way, though, since he shares his insanity so nicely. It is kind of like mental rabies. He has it, you read his stuff, and then you walk away with a festering case of bizarre brain syndrome. Kind of like dealing with H.P. Lovecraft's Old Ones, once you get involved with them you are never the same. Best of all, you pretty much end up joining the club. Check out his Sharantula just to see how crazy he gets, that is a fun, wild ride, that pays homage to those old B-movies.
I guess that what I'm trying to say is that Essel Pratt builds a bizarre universe, and this book is squarely in the middle of it. I will say that this is an extremely well written and wonderfully weird, but, if you know his mind you will quickly recognize who the players in this game are. It is a fun little exercise in genocide.
I'm really getting to appreciate his sensibilities, and his stories never fail to amuse. I dig the weird, and so his work just clicks with my own twisted mind. Aitken does a fine job conveying Pratt's words, he is disturbingly fun to listen to, and he really amps things up at the reveal. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

This is a most unusual story, it taking me a while to understand what was happening. It is suspenseful and entertaining. Two hours was a perfect length to build the suspense and tell the story..
