The End Of Alice
The End Of Alice | A.M. Homes
5 posts | 15 read | 25 to read
From the 2013 Orange Prizewinning author of May We Be Forgiven. Only a work of such searing, meticulously controlled brilliance could provoke such a wide range of visceral responses. Here is the incredible story of an imprisoned pedophile who is drawn into an erotically charged correspondence with a nineteen-year-old suburban coed. As the two revealand revel intheir obsessive desires, Homes creates in The End of Alice a novel that is part romance, part horror story, at once unnerving and seductive.

Definitely not for the faint hearted. Found that I could‘ve read the last 3 chapters and got the full story without reading the whole book.

Trigger warnings for so many things in this one: rape, pedophilia, child abuse, violence, etc. The stream of consciousness style is perfected in this book. The characters are so believable that it almost feels like nonfiction. It truly is a dark and deeply disturbing book, but absolutely worth reading.

This was an...interesting book. Definitely left me feeling a little icky after I read it.

HeinrichLyle I think my own book, "Shameless Dick: Odyssey of a Cad" would fit the bill. If you would give it an honest review, I would gladly send you a free copy! 2y

The End Of Alice | A.M. Homes

So, I'm a bit of a weirdo and love books that shock and disturb me. The End of Alice comes to mind, as do Tampa, American Psycho and J.G. Ballard's Crash. Anyone got any good ones in mind that are must-reads for weirdos like me?

Notafraidofwords All Things Cease To Appear is a bit disturbing. The Book Of Harlan's ending was so so disturbing. 4y
brendanmleonard eyyyyy another Tampa fan. 4y
brendanmleonard Try this - so shocking/disturbing I threw it across the room at one point. 4y

mauveandrosysky @brendanmleonard I tried that one! I couldn't get through it because I thought the writing was so bad, haha. 😩 But yeah, Jack Ketchum has a messed up mind, for sure. 4y
mauveandrosysky @Notafraidofwords I loooooved All Things Cease to Appear, but didn't find it all that disturbing. I have a high threshold, haha. The Book of Harlan looks devastating and really good. 4y
Notafraidofwords @mauveandrosysky lol my threshold is really low. 4y
Liberty The Wasp Factory! 💯 4y
SusanInTiburon Perfume by Patrick Suskind was a stretch for me. 4y
mauveandrosysky @Liberty Oooh, yes! That has been on my to-read list forever. Bumping it up! 4y
mauveandrosysky @Susanintiburon my friend just read that one recently! I remember loving the movie. Definitely need to check out the book. 4y
Liberty Yes, read Perfume! And Disquiet. I'll stop now. 😊 4y
mauveandrosysky @Liberty adding both...yay! 4y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled The Library at Mount Char! 4y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Also - weird books by Shane Jones: The Lightboxes, The Crystal Eaters. His books are out there and weird but really intriguing. 4y
Lindy Have you read Lightning Rods? 4y
mauveandrosysky @Lindy I haven't, but it looks right up my alley. Adding! 4y
mauveandrosysky @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled.com those Shane Jones books sound awesome! Especially Lightboxes. 4y
Lindy Miranda July's The First Bad Man might fit your tastes. 4y
Lindy Also, The People in the Trees, Yanagihara's first novel, which has quite a different vibe from A Little Life. 4y
mauveandrosysky @Lindy I loved both of those! You're good! 😀 4y
Lindy @mauveandrosysky Good to know I'm on the right track. If I think of more, I'll let you know. 4y
Lindy @mauveandrosysky Just thought of one with whimsy as well as shock: 4y
Allkat Maybe along the same track- Damage by Josephine Hart, and Notes on a Scandal 2y
HeinrichLyle Based on your tastes, which I definitely share, you may enjoy my own "Shameless Dick: Odyssey of a Cad." I'd be happy to send you a free copy if you'll write an honest review. 2y
