    1. One of the most fucked-up things I have ever read. Completely surreal, but totally readable. Not surreal like Naked Lunch. It's just what's going on with the characters that is surreal and fucked-up. I liked it! Of course, I read it when I was 17 and I thought I was hot shit for being able to handle the shocking subject matter (penile-self-mutilation).


    2. A split personality page turner. Gargan the tight-rope walker meets Su. Starts to fall for her until she explains to him after putting him under that he suffer from "the rai " Adam Midweather is an actor growing to be better. tangled between to women. Page 175- 183 is very intense for male readers. I really didn't catch on until the end of this book. Worth the read.
