    One of the things I like to while I sit in my booth is pretend it's September 11. How awesome is that? Anyone can do it and it's like you have the greatest time for free. Your imagination can do whatever it wants to, of course, that's how we get things like sex with alligators and peop...

    so i love this book, but writing the review for it is pissing me off a little bit. as a procrastination tactic, because i really didn't feel like burrowing back into my paper just yet, i thought, "i shall write a very informed review for once; one which edifies its readers and is full ...

    Sometimes this Tony Burgess guy takes flight and swoops exulting into a fiery firmament of linguistic legerdemain, really lovely brilliant stuff, I love it ? he did it in Ravenna Gets and he does it here ? example ? A torn cloud grows sideways along the moon?s eye. A fine oi...

    Told in a chilling first person POV, this book grabs you right away and puts you in the head of a man whose mind has snapped. His actions thereafter left an indelible mark on my mind. The random cruelty and unconscionable acts so easily performed on citizens of his small town, peopl...

    Very strange, and horrifically revolting. I like it. ...

    Disturbing, but in the right kind of ways. Wonderful, evocative language that is inventive (without drawing too much attention to itself) while effortlessly carrying forward the narrative. Made me believe I was in the mind of a mass murderer. ...

    I really liked this book it starts out with an amazing story there are a couple of times that I got a little lost as to what was going on but it did all come together at the end. I really enjoy reading something that is new and refreshing horror at least to me this was. ...

    Okay. What? But it was good. Even though I often despise stream-of-consciousness but it somehow works here. It does. You might not always be certain as to what's really going on but Burgess makes it work. This is probably the closest thing to a cover buy for me, besides getting m...

    I hadn't been aware of Tony Burgess until about three months ago. I was flipping through channels and found -- on IFC I think, but maybe it was FearNet -- a zombie movie I'd never seen or heard of before, and it was only 10 minutes in. It had the unlikely title, "Pontypool," which sugg...

    Well, that was nuts! Told from a first-person perspective, a gas-pump attendant tries his hand at murder and home invasion over an unhinged but contemplative couple of days. The third act in particular is great, where an unreliable narrator infects some townspeople with that very same ...

    What a hell of a read. This story moves like a boat on extremely choppy waters, and I never saw what was coming. One starts to hope, and then suddenly every thing falls out from under the reader's feet. Scary ride through a disturbed mind. Five scribbled heads out of five. ...

    Holy hell. I haven't read a book that made me this uncomfortable since American Psycho. Short, sweet, and bloody disturbing. Hats off, Mr Burgess. Hats off. ...

    Wow. I just recorded this book for Iambik and it was compelling, startling, repulsive and unveiling all at the same time. Written from the internal dialog of a serial killer you can imagine ... well perhaps you can't imagine what goes on inside the brains (yes, two of them) of a derang...

    As I was reading, I found myself responding to this book in three and four syllables. Some examples: WTF? Oh my gawd. Guy's nuckin' futs. eeYUW....(OK, that's two). You get the idea. When I was younger, I loved me a good serial killer yarn, or more appropriately, Bob Clark, o...

    ?I sit without taking my eyes off her. The hole in her forehead isn?t closing or healing, but it isn?t festering either. Her eyes are shaded prettily in blue and purple. Bruises that haven?t changed. She pulls her long black hair back behind her shoulders.? *** Tony Bur...

    I bought this book a while back and had forgotten what the premise was. So, when I finally got around to reading it, I plucked it off the shelf thinking it was southern fiction. Maybe with kids or rural folks. A character study. I read the synopsis on the back and realized it wasn't wh...

    "Well, ma'am, looks like the problem is people. They just make us nervous and then we kill them. And then we feel better until someone makes us nervous again. And well, ma'am, that's the way it lays." It's true, Bob Clark DOES NOT have a way with people. He doesn't like talking to t...

    Bloody weird first person narrative of a mentally broken spree killer that doesn't try to explain, excuse or justify itself in any way. "Well, ma'am, looks like the problem is people. They just make us nervous and then we kill them. And then we feel better until someone makes us ner...

    This was intense and disturbing. I was fascinated by the first person POV of a man whose had a psychotic break from reality. Not for the squeamish. ...

    I love that Burgess can show you the inside of a broken brain in a believable, instinctively understandable way. Of course this meant I spent half the book wondering if the act of understanding the book equated with being a sociopath myself. So that was.... creepy. But while Cashtow...

    I read this book in a single day - which is quite rare for me. Burgess take the reader squarely into the head of the psychotic protagonist, and the novel itself reads almost like a stream-of-consciousness rant. The perspective shifts with the character's mental state - at times almo...
