A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

The Blood Countess: A Novel

The Blood Countess: A Novel - Andrei Codrescu One of the weirdest books I have ever read. I picked this up because of the author. Full of gratuitous sex and violence, no really. Is it a horror novel or historical fiction? It can't seem to decide. I was reviled and fascinated at the same time. I like it's prurient sado-erotic aspects more than the actual novel but in the end it was too much of a mess to rate it very high.I thought Codrescu could write better than this, but I guess he should stick to short pieces.
