What a delightfully icky book . I knew I would LOVE it when I got to page 2 and read about the procreation habits of the African Bat Bug - and came across ( see what I did there ? 😆) the term “traumatic insemination” . ( which , by the way, would be a FANTASTIC name for a black metal band !! ) .

A blurb on the back of this book describes it as “like a film by David Cronenberg from a screenplay by Harlan Ellison based on stories by J G Ballard and Joyce Carol Oates “ - which is a pretty on point assessment . Delightfully disturbing and a spiffy cover to boot !

Outstanding book . Very eye opening - especially for someone who lives in the city where this book is based . I think people probably make a lot gross misjudgments against those that live in poverty . I know that this book certainly gave me some new perspectives.

JenlovesJT47 Hi! Just checking in for the bloody valentine swap. Your match was wondering if you've received your package yet, as tracking shows it was supposed to be delivered already. Please let me know one way or the other and if you have received it, please post a blurb on Litsy. Thank you! ☺️ 2y
Jenbug68 Yup . Got it last week . Put in another room so I wouldn‘t be tempted to open it prior ...and then promptly forgot to post that I received it . Sorry . Will post blurb now . 2y
JenlovesJT47 Ok glad to know you got it! Can't wait til opening day! ☺️ 2y

Picked this up on a whim as it was in the bargain section of the local Barnes and Noble . Not sure why - I never really knew that much about her other than the fact that she is the grand dame of Feminism . This book is the story of all her life‘s journeys and how the people she has met along the way have helped form her and her beliefs . The world would be a whole lot better if we took a few notes from her and really got to know our fellow man

Messing with the Facebook camera and doing a little Halloween reading - the Bride of Frankenstein effect just made me giggle a little 😆 seems appropriate though ... ( the Litsy app kinda cuts of the top of the hair in the pic ... but u get the idea ...)

I wanted to like this book so much more than I did . Interesting premise - but ultimately I found that I didn't really care about any of the characters .

Weekend getaway with the hubby and found this gem in the hotel lobby's free library . Usually all you find in hotel libraries are Sue Grafton and old Readers Digest Condensed books . SCORE !!

My grandmother ( who was once a librarian) always stressed to me the importance of opening a book correctly . God have mercy on your soul if you didn't !!

For a book with just over 200 pages the author sure stuck in a lot of stuff : Frankenstein , his bride , a freak show of failed science experiments , a fembot , a gang of what are essentially Lost Boys and a serial killer of children . I love the way the author writes but I wish She had focused a little more on The Bride rather than adding all the strange sidebars .

Jenbug68 From what I've read about this book online a lot of these little plot points were references to some movies etc of the era the book took place ( which clearly went over my head ) . Maybe I would've liked this book more if I got those references . Still , I wanted more about HER . 3y
