Good Kindle The Pig And The House Repulsive from the first sentence, “Sissy looked at the shot glass full of pig semen and threw it back neat.” Grainy, soundless, 8MM film click, click, clicks through my body as I read this book. There are no words. There is no need. There are only horrific images and the repulsive smell of toxic inhumanity. I am disgusted with myself for being so captivated. I am filthy and vile. Why would I read such a foul and heinous exposition of madness. Why would anyone read this kind of filth? I HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE. I imagine Ed Lee's brain is full of piles and piles of rotting, fetid, naked bodies. The mind of a sick, sick person. Those images are now inside me. They cannot be unseen. Ed Lee’s character, Leonard D’arava, is an intelligent, naive, farm boy. An idealistic, thoughtful writer/filmmaker, with dreams of someday winning Sundance. Leonard has a hopeful heart. He is an innocent. He is a dreamer. He has written a feature film called The Confessor. It is “a meld of Bergman and Polanski, with bits of Hitchcock and Fulci tossed in for spice.” It is a pensive musing . It is nice. It is who he is. It is who he aspires to be. ”So you’ve come to ask a question?” The vale’s graven dark oozes gossamer mists as if through pores. The writer thinks of sepulchers and uteri, of palls and wedding gowns and newborn pudenda and autopsy saws, and grave-dirt; he thinks of the fornication of opposites. […]The contrast makes him want to throw up right there at the confessor’s black-marble feet. All the world’s love against all of its loss. He sees beautiful flowers tossed into pits of excrement. He sees maggot-filled bodies and stray rot washed up onto beaches of pristine, white sand […] Fast-forward through optimistic aspirations, unfortunate happenings, and 18 months of story boarding every scene, camera angle, and light effect of his movie. All while being ass fucked and violated by every monstrous miscreant cock on the prison D Block. Fast-forward through the miraculously unsullied, still optimistic aspirations, and his one last act of untainted humanness, sending his film off to Sundance. Fast-forward, fast-forward, fast-forward. STOP. Leonard is a filmmaker for the mob. And he’s good. He makes scat flicks, nek flicks, snuff flicks, freak flicks, wet flicks and...it only gets worse. There are so many unspeakable, inhuman and, unfortunately, all too vivid images that go on, and on, and on. Through all of this, Leonard holds his idiotic innocence. It’s only after the pig arrives that Leonard loses his shit. Because of BACON! Because, DAMN, Leonard LOVES bacon. “Something quite out of character happened then. Leonard’s Happy Country Kitchen[…]turned into...a Charnel House. […] Leonard awoke to the pulsating thrum of crickets. “Oh, man. What a horrible dream!” Yet the first thing he saw after that was Snowdrop’s severed head, her tongue sticking out at him from her eye.” DANG, BACON! You really know how to fuck shit up, doncha? BACON IS FUCKING EVIL INCARNATE! And, when it’s cooked like Ed Lee cooks it, it’s oh so good, even when it’s bad! Why do I read such foul and heinous expositions of madness?

  • I ve read some fucked up stuff in my life, Shane McKenzie s Pus Junkies and Bret Easton Ellis s American Psycho come to mind, but I ll tell you what Edward Lee takes the cake.This book is a fucking sewer, it s as if the author thought to himself Why should I limit myself to blood and disembowelment when there s shit, piss, and vomit as well Oh, and sperm, plenty of it and then sat at his desk getting down to business with a huge grin on his face The Pig is a story about mobsters raising money th [...]

  • Meine Meinung Ich muss gestehen, dass mich das Buch gar nicht so sehr angesprochen, dennoch war ich auch neugierig was sich hinter der Geschichte verbirgt und wie mir der erste Festa Extrem Band der Reihe gefallen wird Das Buch ist wieder nichts f r schwache Nerven und M gen Die ersten 20 Seiten haben mir nicht so gut gefallen Ich kam berhaupt nicht in die Geschichte rein und kam auch mit dem Schreibstil des Autors nicht ganz zurecht Doch als ich mich dann erst einmal an alles gew hnt hatte, kon [...]


  • Stumbled against this book when looking for splatterpunk books The cover and the title captured my attention at once And as soon as I read how offensive and scandalous the book was, I knew I needed to read it Well, that was some seriously sick shit The Pig was a string of increasingly obscene and brutal scenes Delivered stylishly and with a touch of dark humor And I was pulled into it And I wanted to know how it all ends And the ending most definitely didn t disappoint The House was a sort of se [...]


  • The German edition of Edward Lees short novel The Pig caused a medium sized outrage last year, making it instantly one of the author s most notorious works Published by Leipzig s Festa publishing house, Das Schwein came without an ISBN and was explicitly marketed as obscene thriller On the American or English language market, where the novel was originally released in 1997, it appears to be a bit lesser known, although I am not quite sure about this A quick look on Google shows it is available a [...]


  • The problem with writing about debauchery, is that there are only so many variations of brutal sex and torture Or at least that s what I m assuming, with this book Because Edward lee repeats himself often in this book He borrows from his other sick and twisted books, instead of coming up with new and interesting debauchery.Well, except for the bestiality, of course That sick and twisted porn is exclusive to this book, as far as I can tell Because that s what this book is Porn The most disgusting [...]


  • This was the third novel I ve read by Edward Lee and prior to reading it I really couldn t wait as the two previous books were, in my opinion, superbly written In a silly way I was keeping my fingers crossed thus hoping that I wasn t hoping for too much These two stories, without giving too much away, are very cleverly put together keeping you thinking all the way through and as you imagine with all of Edward Lee stories don t leave much to the imagination I would love to tell you about how I f [...]


  • These two interconnected novellas really push the boundaries of taste and decency and I for one loved them Lee has a way of making even the most disgusting of situations laugh out loud funny Not for the faint of stomach but if you can handle it then you ll love it.

  • Having most recently read one or two of Mr Lee s less gory and humorous takes on redneck life, namely Header 2 though 3 dives back into gore and nihilism territory being basically Deliverance without boats and White Trash Gothic, it was slightly unsettling to hit the all out violence and degradation of The Pig We are treated to some Lee staples drugs, prostitution, porn and animals, and an infamous torture scene that was hard to read usually the only thing of his I skim read are Hock Parties, w [...]


  • Edward Lee is my splatter punk guilty pleasure I Love it.Think of the most extreme and depraved images you can That s Edward Lee The Pig and the House seems even amped up than usual.Torture, bestiality, torture, rape Etc That s what you get here And also a bunch of laughs The thing about Mr Lee is that he is actually a great writer as opposed to just throwing out horrible stuff against a page and hoping it sticks So its actually a fun and compelling read.This is actually 2 novellas They take p [...]


  • I have never read anything quite like this If ever anyone points out a book to you that think is extreme, laugh in their faces loudly and present this to them Honestly, one of the most ghastly, frightening and insane book ever written.Lee is a curious author in that he seems to know people will take aim at this work as unintellectual drivel His riposte, however, is to approach this story with some of the best prose of his career and to emboss this he throws in a glorious little flurry near the s [...]


  • SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS The Pig definitely took me by surprise What started off as an admittedly enjoyable dark comedy about the disgusting, depraved world of underground pornography ended in grandiose and very unexpected fashion as a body horror monster story Lots of fun and definitely among the best Lee stories I ve ready so far.The House was a different beast entirely While technically a sequel to The Pig, it s so thematically different that it s difficult to compare the two I did find the [...]


  • Rezension jetzt online Die B chergnomen Edward Lee Das Schwein Viel Gejammer, viel Geheule, viel Kritik So beschreibt man Das Schwein wohl am ehrlichsten Im Bereich der extremen Literatur als wertfreie, sachliche Aussage gibt es wohl nur sehr wenig B cher, die derart zerfleischt und gleichzeitig angeprangert wurden Komplette Rezension auf dem Blog Die B chergnomen


  • The pig half of the novel was prime Lee Gruesome, fascinating, and I was unable to put it down And, like always, Lee has a great plot, which is hard to find for a hardcore horror novelist The second half, The House, was a bit of a letdown He had the story there, but didn t execute as he could have I will recommend the novel as a whole for it is a fast read and entertaining, but not one of Lee s best.


  • The Pig and The House are two novellas that tried to have connected plots and failed They failed at having plots, that is Both novellas are short, Lee style horrors, but follow no real story line and have characters that aren t particularly interesting Not two of Lee s finest pieces.


  • I must admit I didn t finish it I made it up til p 88 of 153 but this stuff was just way too sick for me It s not that it was particularly bad writiting but it was just so ewww I couldn t bring myself to finish it nor give it than 2 stars


  • Another one you can t put down from Master Lee There is always a glimmer of very black humor in his writing which is why it can be tolerated in long stretches at least by me Yea, The Pig is a tad bit better than The House, but they make a wonderful pair I just love this stuff
