i picked this up in the dusty, neglected backroom of the public library and finished it the next day. i was entangled in the plot and entranced by harry, the main character. this book is a must read! one of my all time favorites.

I dont think ive ever read a book in which the last 100 pages got my heart rate so high i was panting. Selby, the author, Creates a man that lives inside all of us, who wants to sin like us, but insead of fantsizing he feeds his "Demon", spawning the most powerdul story ive ever read.

The author couldnt even read this book after a few decades or so because this book sounds LAME and it shouldnt even be called a horror but instead a childrens humor
