Suffer the Flesh

Suffer the Flesh - Monica J. O'Rourke I kept thinking of Das Experiment as I read this. I was intrigued when Zoey was abducted and then again a few sparks when she hid in the bathroom. So I think the writer has some skills, but I didn't find much in the book that was very interesting from a literary perspective. It was sort of 'The Experiment' meets 'some other movie I haven't seen. I was looking for some interesting new transgressive fiction I think, and something in the synopsis made me just grab it - here it is: "Somewhere between ecstasy and pain -- learn to SUFFER THE FLESH." If you you like filth, go for it. O'Rourke makes your feel like you're in the dungeon and you might be next. I'm curious about that place, between ecstasy and pain, and she delivered some - I won't say where though. Try this out if you're into transgressive fiction.
