Reviews - What do customers think about Experiments in Human Nature?

extreme horror at its very best  Aug 3, 2008
(aka Ash Lomen)

In the issue of full disclosure: Monica J. O' Rourke once called me tasteless...

And in the issue of full disclosure: I am...

About a year or so ago I was in the practice of sending my work out via MySpace to different writers I thought might respond... some writers liked it (even asked me to send more)... some didn't... she was one of the ones who didn't. Hence the tasteless remark.

Regardless... her first collection rules. Smart and snappy, her stories range from heartbreaking to hilarious, erotic to grotesque... and sometimes all four at the same time. You could be getting anything from a subtle tearjerking tale of ruined childhoods to a snuff story that makes some of Jack Ketchum's work seem light... or even a hilarious bizarro tale of backwoods baby hunting (I know that sounds bad, but you really have to give it a chance). Brian Knight wasn't lying in his intro... this chick has some serious damn talent... and I simply couldn't put the book down.

Also... (not to be "tasteless") but her vivid descriptions of fellatio lead me to believe writing may not be her only talent.

I've got to check out that book she did with Wrath... could be really incredible.
Monica J. O'Rourke: Super Genius  Mar 11, 2008
I read "Suffer the Flesh" and "Poisoning Eros" and the ONLY complaint I had about these books is that when i was done reading, I wanted MORE!!!!!! Well, as usual, Monica has delivered!!!!!! I'm already a fan so I was familiar with a few of the stories in "Experiments..." - those stories, along with the others that were new to me, comprised what I think is a perfect read. Monica can write a story that will make you uneasy and prompt you to check over your shoulder to make sure you're actually safe.... then follow it up with a story that will make you literally turn your head away from the pages - just for the moment it takes you to get your stomach back - until you've finished it feeling sick, dirty and a little turned on....
Brian Knight wrote an excellent introduction except for one part - comparing Monica to Jack Ketchum was harshly unfair to Monica! Especially since it was less of a comparison than an accusation of Monica's work being derivative of Ketchum's..... I don't see it and have always put Monica's work on a higher level than Ketchum's.
If you like Monica's previous work, you're in for a treat - if you didn't, give this a chance as there's something in here for everyone!!!!! And if you're a Monica J. O'Rourke fan than you already own this book and are probably going to re-read it as soon as that slight taste of bile and KY Jelly has left your mouth......
