Von Tom am 19. Dezember 2013
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Poisining Eros war mein erster kompletter Roman von White und Rourke. Von White kannte ich bisher nur ein paar Kurzgeschichten, deswegen wusste ich bereits, was mich erwarten könnte. Dachte ich jedenfalls. Ich lese ja viel und schaue viel Horror, aber etwas wie PE habe ich noch nicht erlebt. Es geht direkt derb los, wenn die Heldin der Geschichte Gloria, Tierpornos dreht, um Geld für Drogen zu kaufen. Früher hätte ich so etwas direkt in die Ecke geworfen, aber es muss wohl der tatsächlich gute und flüssige Schreibstil gewesen sein, so wie die Tatsache, dass es nur ein Buch und kein Film ist, dass ich die Szenen ohne weiteres gelesen habe. Nach Tieren geht es mit Dämonen weiter, was ich recht einfallsreich fand.
Man merkt, bis Gloria in der Hölle landet, dauert es etwas und wer denkt, es wäre bis dahin schon schlimm gewesen, hat noch gar nichts gesehen. Das Autorenduo splattert was das Zeug hält. Eine kranke Idee jagt die nächste und obwohl mich so etwas schnell langweilt, schafft PE es dank seiner interessanten Handlung über eine Frau, welche sprichwörtlich durch die Hölle geht, um dann zum Gegenschlag anzusetzen, es zu unterhalten.
Wie gesagt, der Schreibstil ist flüssig und ich kann mir vorstellen, dass White und Rourke sich etwas abgewechselt haben, denn hier und da merkt man doch kleine Unterschiede in den Kapiteln.
Der Rezensionstitel bezieht sich darauf, dass ich nicht weiß, wem man dieses Werk empfehlen sollte. Es ist ultrabrutal, pervers und vollkommen krank, aber gut geschrieben und spannend. Ich persönlich habe es jedenfalls schnell durchgelesen, um zu erfahren, wie es endet. Lesen sollten es aber nur Fans des absoluten Extremhorrors.

From "The Horror Fiction Review" 18. Juli 2013
Von Christine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Do not be fooled or lulled into a false sense of security by the classy, literary-sounding title of this book.

There is not enough brain-bleach in the world. Not in the world. Not in the whole solar system, even if Jupiter and all the other gas giants were composed entirely of brain-bleach. The first few pages alone ... NOTHING WILL ERADICATE THE IMPACT!!!

YOU WILL BE TRAUMATIZED AND SCARRED FOR LIFE. CANNOT BE UNSEEN!!! WHY DID I EVER LEARN TO READ I LOVE LANGUAGE AND LOOK WHAT THEY MADE IT DO OMG.

You know that episode of South Park where the boys write the book that makes everyone who reads it barf their guts out? Yeah. No. Poisoning Eros would make that book look like Hop on Pop.

If you can get through those first few pages, you might naively think it can't get any worse. Or that you'll go numb, be desensitized. Good luck with that.

This is the story of Gloria, former porn-star legend fallen on hard times. Age and addiction have taken their toll, until she's reduced to doing, shall we say, nature documentaries. If a phrase like `dog and donkey show' disturbs you, then, well, it's probably already too late. Sorry.

After barnyard adventures, it's not that much of a step down for Gloria to accept some even weirder jobs. Jobs of the paranormal activity type, for instance. Like ghost and possession porn, or giant demonic worms.

But Vlad, the charming fellow arranging these gigs for her, has something else in mind for Gloria. Something that will result in her ending up quite literally in Hell ... and, honestly, for me at least, it was a relief.

Why that should be, I don't know. The atrocities went on, amped to diabolical and otherwise physically impossible levels of degredation and mutilation; maybe that was part of it, the sheer impossibility and unreality. Or maybe too much of me had died inside by then.

Read it if you dare. You won't be disappointed. You'll be many, many other things, you might need therapy and/or self-medication later, it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a bucket standing by, but you won't be disappointed.

Worth the wait! 16. Juni 2013
Von Ellie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have wanted to read this book for years, and thanks to Deadite Press re-releasing it I finally got the chance. And I have to say that I really loved this book! To summarize the book without giving too much away; the story follows Gloria an aging porn star turned drug addict, who used to be great but now will do anything for a fix. Unfortunately for Gloria she is about to find out that all of the pain she endured on earth is nothing compared to what she will find in hell. The tortures she finds are described in explicit detail; something not for the faint of heart but enjoyable to those of us who like hardcore horror.

This story is much deeper than just gratuitous sex and violence; as it examines redemption as well as our perceptions of God and the Devil. And just what if neither Heaven or Hell is what we expect it to be. Fans of the Teratologist by Lee and White will really enjoy this offering, but be warned that this is a book that will stick with you long after you have turned the final page.

I received a copy of this book for free in e-book format in return for an honest review.

Welcome to Hell. 7. Juni 2006
Von Jose Jones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Though it's filled with endless descriptions of torture and degradation, "Poisoning Eros" is about redemption. It's the story of an old porn queen whose career has faded away because of drug addiction and AIDS. She's fallen so far she's reduced to having sex with animals for a web site to make money for her habit.

Gloria, the porn queen, ends up with a man looking for an invite to Hell, and it turns out this man knows her husband and daughter. They use Gloria's love for her daughter to get her to commit suicide, which sends her to Hell, where she's repeatedly and brutally tortured.

There's no doubt White and O'Rourke strive to give the extreme-fiction crowd what they want. The bestiality, violence and torture are endless. But like White's similar story "Book of a Thousand Sins," things get pretty silly. At one point Gloria begins to plead with the demon who tortures her and forces him to face his own reality. Which just goes to show you that you can be an arch demon in Hell, but your woman is still going to nag you and try to turn you into something you're not. I'm surprised she didn't buy him a new set of clothes.

The weakest aspect of this story is that Gloria continually risks her life to save her daughter (who also ends up in Hell), but the daughter helped send her here. I know a mother's love knows no bounds, but it's hard to believe her motivation. And all of this running-around-Hell, one's-passion-and-resolve-driving-one-on-to-save-the-person-one-loves business isn't exactly "What Dreams May Come." Actually, you hear the term "ripping flesh" so many times that eventually it becomes like reading the phonebook.

When I encounter a threadbare story in one of these books, I'm always a bit stumped how to judge it. On the one hand, you buy these books for the sick-fun of its violence, and "Eros" has plenty of that. But on the other hand, novels like "The Bighead" and "High Life" show you can do more than just list one scene of gore after another. These novels, novellas and stories work better with skill. With more than a skinny plot to cover with repetitive debauchery.

So I'll say what I normally say: if you don't mind the lack of story, and can get by with all the woman-animal love and whips-and-more torture, then this novella is for you. If not, you'll probably want to skip it and look elsewhere.

When there's no more room in hell... 15. März 2014
Von Robert Beveridge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Wrath James White and Monica J. O'Rourke, Poisoning Eros (Deadite Press, 2003)

For ten years, Poisoning Eros was one of the most infamous—and hard to get hold of—books in underground horror. I came across a lot of people who claimed to have read one of the witheringly limited editions in which it was released, first in 2003, then again in 2011, and all of them sang the book's praises, but I never so much as smelled one until Deadite Press finally put out a reasonably-priced trade edition in 2013, presumably to mark the book's tenth anniversary. With all that build-up, I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I will say this: any tale that starts off with barnyard porn and then gets more offensive is pretty much a guaranteed winner, for my money.

Plot: Gloria is a washed-up porn star whose chose her drug addiction over her family. When the drugs started interfering with her career, she rode the downward spiral as long as she could, to the point where, when we open, we're presented with the scene mentioned in the opening paragraph. (It is not the only one of its type in the first half of the book, so be warned. Or be titillated. I won't judge.) Suffice to say that, through a number of agencies both internal and external, Gloria comes to a bad end and finds herself in Hell, which is, well, about what you would expect. Gloria, however, had a very rough life, and the torments of Hell are just another tribulation to be endured—and it turns out that her old skills may come in handy even in the afterlife. All the old stories, after all, tell us that demons are exceptionally fond of negotiation...

There's a part of me that wants to dismiss Poisoning Eros for what is, at its black little heart, a pretty standard morality play with a lot of added shock value. That said, there are two very strong related points in its favor. The first is that, once you've gotten past the opening scene and you start seeing where the pieces in this puzzle fit, it becomes obvious that neither White nor O'Rourke was in this to do shock for shock's sake. There's a reason for all of the depraved, degenerate, disgusting stuff that goes on, even if (as with the opening scene) that reason is not immediately apparent; the fact that nothing in this book is gratuitous, especially given that it does in fact live up to its reputation, is pretty huge. And then there's the closing scene, about which I can say absolutely nothing without giving the entire game away. But if you're going to go with a traditional Judeo-Christian value set for your framework, you've gotta do something pretty explosive to get my attention. That last scene...does.

On the other hand, that last scene is ridiculously short. They could have easily played it for an entire third chapter and I would have fallen right in line. It would have fit (at least I think it would have fit) with the book we got; it would certainly have been consistent with both Gloria's character and White and O'Rourke's finely-honed senses of the ironic. But there I go again bitching about things I didn't get that would have made a book better rather than criticizing the book I have in front of me. But let's face it—all the horrors to be found here are of absence, on the meta level. I am unsure whether White and O'Rourke succeeded in telling the tale they wanted to tell; no one will know that but them. But they succeeded in telling a tale, and telling a very good one. While this is a very personal thing and YMMV (and probably will), I found it one of those books that Stephen King calls “go for the gross-out”, rather than having the sort of profoundly disturbing atmosphere of something like Charlee Jacob's Haunter, but that makes it not one iota less worth reading. Pick it up, now that you easily can, and strap yourself in—turbulence is expected on this flight. *** ½

Chicken Soup for the Dark Side 29. September 2004
Von MrHARM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have not had the pleasure of reading Wraths earlier work - I have had the pleasure of reading Monica's work, though.... and Monica has always done something to shock me! This book is no different!

This colaboration between these two extremely talented writers is like nothing I have ever read.... the detail they use literally brings you into the darkest depths with the main character, Gloria. Never before have I gotten this vivid a glimpse of Hell.... which makes me wonder if Monica or Wrath have actually been there..... hmmmmmm....

I immediately found myself sympathizing with Gloria - which must be part of the Monica/Wrath TRAP! And her Hell on Earth is nothing compared to her Hell in Hell!

Throughout this book I found myself gagging, choking, looking away, questioning my own beliefs in good and evil, and yelling (out loud, not in my head!) at certain characters (Vlad, Ryan, Angela... all come to mind!) who deserved the punishment that poor Gloria endured.....

My ONLY criticism of this book is that I feel it ended too abruptly... some extremely critical decisions were made in the last 2 or 3 pages that I felt deserved a chapter of their own.... I felt sorry for myself after I read the last page because I wanted to read more.... I wonder if a sequel or continuation is in the works.....

Hopefully Monica and Wrath will be taking another trip to Hell soon to conjure up some more sick, twisted, and wonderfully demented ideas!!!!!!
