I am a full-time mother who doesn't have much time to herself, but had the chance to read this book. Which I thought that I would get bored or just wouldn't have the time to read it. I could not put it down and when I did I couldn't wait to get a chance to read it. It was exactly what my headline states.

This is a very unique, disturbing, and entertaining novel. It's the story of Jonathan both as a boy and a man and his dark fascination and perversion of flesh eating. For most of his early life, he would taste and eat his own flesh, but as he grows older he begins to have the desire to eat other people's flesh as well. If you are squeamish and are easily offended, then this book is defiantly not for you. Many parts of the story are gory, gruesome, and downright morbid. However, if you keep the descriptive accounts in perspective, you'll find a very entertaining novel about a dark fetish and perversion towards cannibalism. The storyline stretches the limits of what is considered acceptable horror; almost a contradiction of terms. You may hate this book or love it but you will not be neutral to it. If horror and gore is what you're looking for, you're going to find it in this book.

I just finished reading this book and let me tell you what a waste of time and money. I read the whole book and waited until the last page to see if something exciting happens, but nothing. I am still wondering what was this book about? I am going to pick one more book from this author and see if she have done a better job writing it and if not then I am not reading any book by her. Very dissapointing!!!

As a child, Jonathan was very spiritually inclined and the private catholic school he attended only reinforced that belief. He received the Eucharist and was moved to have the blood and flesh of Christ in his system. When he started to question the church doctrine, he started eating his own flesh, a practice he continued into adulthood. When he married he kept his fetish hidden from his wife but eventually she discovered his dark secret.

Unwilling to obtain help he slowly ate his wife until she died from her wounds. At that point in Jonathan¿s life, Yakul (Satan) comes into his life to claim Jonathan as one of his followers. Jonathan resists Yakuh¿s call refusing to eat any more flesh but once the devil has his hooks in you it is almost impossible to obtain freedom from his influences. Jonathan tries fighting Yakul and his minions every step of the way but the Devil has weapons in his arsenal that strike at Jonathan¿s scarred soul.

Mary Ann Mitchell has written a very exciting horror novel that is so scary it will force the reader to sleep with the lights on. The novel starts out like a thriller but quickly changes into the supernatural tale that fans of both genres will want to read. This refreshingly occult work is not ambrosia for the soul or faint of heart, but instead Ambrosial Flesh is for those readers who relish a frightening horror tale.
