Gone Bad is 18 ball-busting tales of nefarious and otherwise unseemly deeds from the warped mind of Julie Morrigan.
In an interview, she gave a three-word description of this collection: "sweary and violent." I agree. And that's how I like my fiction.
At times hilarious, at times wrenching, and always moving at the speed of a cheetah on crank, this is a fun and freaky read. Each story is about (or at least includes) someone who's gone bad--thieves, rapists, murders, tranny-beating arseholes, etc. They're all there and ready to make someone else's life a living hell. Morrigan's also got a gift for the ironic ending, which she uses liberally and to excellent effect.
This is the first book I bought for my Kindle (yay!) and it's a great find--99 cents well spent.
Thanks so much, Chris - you're a gent! (And so's PDB!) :)ReplyDelete
That huge whirring noise you hear is me leaping off the couch, grabbing my kindle and flash ordering my copy. (You see I have to do this quickly, before Julie changes names again )ReplyDelete
