    Great haunted house story

    I picked up Flesh Gothic on a whim. I was looking for a good haunted house story. While reading this book, I had the thought that Edward Lee wrote this book especially for me because it contains a number of my interests inside of one book.

    This story is about a haunted house with a disturbing history (for example: sexual atrocities and multiple massacres). To the odd house, add in a murder mystery, and paranormal investigators/psychics, an investigative journalist, plus an obscenely wealthy and curious widow and her remaining two staff members.

    The widow hires this unusual group to stay a week inside the house. She wants them to investigate using their psychic abilities, equipment, etc. and tell her what actually happened on the night of the massacre. She hires the journalist to find out what her husband was planning on the night of the mass murder when he supposedly died. The widow tells the journalist that she does not believe that her husband is dead. He is to inform her if he can confirm her belief.

    I genuinely liked these characters, which is unusual for me. They were well written and well developed. I thought that the characters seemed real. They had hopes, dreams, money problems, and inner demons to wrestle with, all while they were in a seriously creepy house. The undercurrent of the main story shows that everyone has secrets and fetishes that affect them deeply.

    This novel covers many dark topics such as: demons, hell, unadulterated lust, murder, sacrifice, rape and a number of other horrifying activities in classic Edward Lee style. This book is not for the faint of heart.

    Throughout the book there is a dichotomy between evil horrific acts...sexuality...and doing the right thing. I believe that each person on the investigation team was looking for some kind of redemption and reasons to continue living. Who knows if they were ever truly satisfied? It makes you think about yourself and your life. At least, it caused me to contemplate my own existence.

    I really loved the obscure references to historical occultists and occult practices. Well done! Also, I learned quite a bit about the different kinds of psychic talents and the burden that those similarly afflicted must feel.

    All in all I enjoyed reading this book. It did get a little slow in a few places. But finishing the novel was rewarding. I had hoped for an epilogue. I wanted a few pages about what happens after. It is a small issue, but not a serious offence.

    It is one of the best haunted house horror titles that I have read. It is sexually depraved, disturbing, and horrifying with some snarky humor added in to good effect. I recommend this book to those with a strong constitution, and other Lee fans. It is well worth the read!

    What a Ride and Rush

    Take the meat of "House on Haunted Hill" and add the flavor of RAW SEX and you have an extremely Savory Dish. Girls this isn't a fluffy romance novel! Bare with the first couple of chapters and pay attention after that. Try and figure out the most awesome puzzle.

    I Also Recommend:

    Not his best but a diversion nonetheless

    If you really want to enjoy Edward Lee--I mean REALLY enjoy him--one must start with CITY INFERNAL. This is the book which shows you where he is coming from & to not take him seriously. With that said: FLESH GOTHIC is an "o.k." Lee novel--taking the haunted house genre to Hell & back again. Nevermind the house in question was used for video porn production--just go with the plotline of "something not of this world wants to be born into it in order to create horror" & you'll be fine. Do not stop reading it because the pay-off at the end is a good one--even though this isn't his best book. I read this book while taking the bus to work & that's the BEST way to read it--to chase the boredom away while commuting to & from work. It's also not as gory as some of his other books but it still entertains. When I think of an Ed Lee novel, I think of creepy demons, backwoods montrosities, entrails, gore, bloodbaths & redneck psychos--this novel only has a slight percentage of everything I've just listed. If this is your first Ed Lee novel, don't give up on him--he's fantastic when he's on his game.

    Lee is the best Hardcore Horror writer out there hands down

    Lee is without a doubt the best in the hardcore horror genre. Flesh Gothic is another example of that. It takes off from the first page and wont let you go to the last word. This book is not for the easily squimish. It is hardcore all the way. I recommend that if you havent read any Edward Lee novels yet pick up City Infernal, and Infernal Angel first, and you will have a deeper appreciation for Fleah Gothic. You will get a deeper understanding for Flesh Gothics story line. I only liked City Infernal more, but Flesh Gothic is right up there with it. I highy recommend this book to any Lee fan, or anyone who likes a good hardcore Horror Novel.

    Nothing safe and nothing sacred to Edward Lee!

    Attractive and repulsive, the plot is a trial of psychosexual horror. Using the bare bones of a been-there-done-that outline, Lee adds muscle and flesh with energetic originality. I must warn you though; this book is not for the easily offended or prudish-types. The scenes are graphic, and the dialog is raw. Thanks to Lee, I avoided any intimate interaction for a week. By the way Mr. Lee, Mr. BloodyMary is currently stalking the streets with your picture in his hand. Beware. All having addictions and weaknesses to sex in one form or another, the characters are both pathetic and admirable in their individuality. Each player is an aspect of what we choose to hide from ourselves and the outside world. While I can respect their personalities, can even place a few among my nearest and dearest, I never once felt close to them. What a waste. Lee¿s style of writing is violent, and unique. Eliciting your most primitive fascinations, he attacks your senses, and you inhibitions with unflinching glee. I¿m not sure how he does it, but he manages to quiet your fears while simultaneously exciting them. His descriptive technique is extreme, and at times repellant and hard to stomach. I loved it! Almost operatic, the pace is slow, but comforting. Believe me, between the overall depravity, and the numerous tensions that mount throughout, the speed¿s a blessing. Creating a moody masterpiece of eroticism and savagery, the atmosphere is taut and tense. The bitter smell of fear and dread sticks to your skin and invades your pores. To get rid of that nasty grime, I suggest you lather. Rinse. Repeat.

    NOT LEE'S GREATEST, BUT CERTAINLY INTERESTING

    After picking this book up I was ready to be hooked all the way through. I was somewhat disappointed in the way it turned out. At some points it was boring, but other times it was exciting. It just didn't seem right compared to his other books.
