Book Review: Going Monstering by Edward Lee

Behind the facade of the sedate sorority house, unutterable horrors seethe while tumid desires rise. All the while, Ann White must become pervert-fodder if she hopes to pass Pledge Week. All too soon, she finds that no act of lewdness is deemed too demeaning, no manner of sexual degradation too foul... For there is a secret festering in the bowels of Alpha House, an ancient carnal evil whose stygian lust is too hideous to imagine and still stay sane. As Ann literally dips herself into a cesspool of soul-soiling immorality, the black revelation throbs closer and closer... Poor Ann will be slopped on, spewed in, spat upon, penetrated, humped, poked, humiliated, bitch-slapped, gang-sodomized, plungered like a toilet, filled like a decanter, and debased en masse-indeed, she will willingly go through a wringer of sexual depravity to prove her resolve, but along the way, as she converts herself into this veritable receptacle of sullied lust, will she live long enough to unveil the true secret of Alpha House? 

TONIGHT, WE'RE GOING MONSTERING. An unrelenting and irredeemable novel of gore-house porn and unmitigated black comedic horror.

My Review:
This was the first Edward Lee book that I read and I knew in advance that his writing is regarded as sick, twisted, depraved and disgusting so I figured I knew what I was in for.I've read a lot of gory and sexually exploitive books but I've never had my gag reflex given such a workout!

Ann is obese, has failing grades and is in search of a sorority that will take her in. Alpha House has a reputation for taking losers and turning them into smart and beautiful girls, and Ann needs to make it through pledge week to have any hope of a life. But pledge week at Alpha House is going to be the worst week of her life.

You really have to admire Ann's dedication to her cause! She is smart enough to know what is going on and knows that giving up means having went through it all for nothing. It doesn't help that she keeps getting punished for her smart ass comments. I found Ann to be funny and entertaining and I loved seeing her reaction to each new challenge. I liked her twisted pledgemaster and the dark humour throughout the book which had you laughing as well as gagging.

So what is the twisted content of the book? Let me warn you what to expect so you can decide whether you want to read it. Sexual encounters with WW2 veterans, old doctors, unwashed tramps, rednecks, sports teams, monkeys, aliens and parents. More sucking than an ice lolly convention. Toilet functions in sexual encounters. The detail at times can be stomach churning so be warned!

It's not a book that I would read again as I doubt my stomach could handle it but I did find it amusing in a twisted way. It is definitely not for the faint hearted or easily offended!
