Burn “Satan Burger” Burn … From MorbidbookS!

The GOOD:

Utterly fascinating, inventive and oftentimes hilarious read, October 28, 2003

This review is from: Satan Burger (Paperback)
Heaven is full and God has closed the gates. No more souls are accepted, so He discontinues death and creates a walm, a door that allows “toys” from other worlds to come in, for His entertainment.

Imagine a world gone boring. Nobody cares about anything, so they sit, stare at the wall and shrug. Imagine being one of the few, who still has an inclination to care, searching for their place in a bizarre and twisted life.

Such is Rippington, New Canada created by Carlton Mellick III. The cast of “punks” include Leaf an ex-drug addict who sees in third person through his God’s eyes; Nan an ex-skinhead; Gin a conscious dead person whose body parts are alive courtesy of Satan’s touch; and Vodka and Christian who appear to be the most normal out of the bunch. Then you have Satan … THE Satan … who opens a chain of restaurants called Satan Burger. You can eat there free, but it comes with a price.

SATAN BURGER isn’t for those who only like pure and pretty things. It’s a weird and perverted tale, but if you’re bored with your usual normal range of taste, start with this novel.

Pick this book up with an open mind or you’ll never make it past the cover art. Which would be a shame, because SATAN BURGER is an utterly fascinating, inventive and oftentimes hilarious read.

The BAD:

Amateurish, Juvenile, Unreadable, September 5, 2006

Folks, this is a cautionary tale — not the content of “Satan Burger” mind you, but the fact that it exists. Was it self published? If so, please let somebody professional in the craft of writing take a look at your work before you put it out there. Otherwise you wind up with something like this, a bathroom-y, high school type mishmash of unconnected writing. Not that there isn’t a spark here, an exuberance, but jeeze…

I guess I should have been warned off by the cover, truely off-putting, but I am a fan of surrealist, dystopian sci-fi, and was suckered in by the reviews. I can usually get through a book if the ideas are interesting, even if the writing is sub-par — that’s what you often get if you like more alternative sci-fi. But even my lowest expectations were left far behind in this one.

Just a friendly warning.

And The UGLY:

Overrated. OOooo, look at me, I write something weird. Oooo look at me, i’m so cool. There are rarely good parts to the story or interesting characters. The main character is dull, no question. The writing is dull for the most part. There are a few pasages that are written well and inspired, but for the most part…I just finished it to finish it.
