4.0 su 5 stelle A twisted, satisfying and recommended read!! 24 settembre 2015
Di Bill - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The Venus Complex is the story of Professor Michael Friday, told in first person narrative thru the entries in his personal journal. Kind of like an internal psycho blog. First person narratives have a tendency to grate on me occasionally and that was almost the case here, but Barbie really kept it moving along nicely.

Professor Michael Friday is one sick puppy. Actually, he believes he is coming into his own…finally. He is an artist. Ok, he is definitely a sick puppy and spreading his form of sickness around. Nobody wants what dude is putting out there into the universe. Unless you are into mayhem and death.

A twisted, satisfying and recommended read. I will be checking out her new one, for sure.
5.0 su 5 stelle Great book that made me squirm! 19 dicembre 2014

I heard about this book on Twitter. Someone mentioned that it was written by the female cenobite, so of course I had to check it out. ;)

Michael Friday is one sick puppy. After a car accident that kills his wife--which he causes because he finds out she is cheating on him--he survives, and months of rehabilitation later he goes home. But his life is not a comfortable place to be. He's constantly bored and spends too much time alone. He becomes addicted to trashy TV even though he despises it. And it's not until he has a very vivid dream about a dead girl that he realises what it is that's missing from his life.

So he starts on a horrible and disgusting path of chasing the high he can only capture while killing someone. But that isn't enough, and when he spots the beautiful Doctor Elene Sheppard, he decides he's going to create a serial killer persona. One that will get her attention, and because he's focusing on what he teaches--art history--she might just need his help to solve the case...

OMG. This book. It's one of those books that is so well written I was hooked from the first word. It's a story that made me squirm many times, to the point where I actually felt dirty just by reading it. The subject matter is one that we're all familiar with--serial killers--and while I've read many books from the POV of one, this guy's sexually depraved fantasies and actions were very disturbing.

He makes no apologies for his immoral thoughts or desires. He's one-track minded and obsessed with getting what he wants. While I'd like to admire his determination, the subject of his obsession deterred me from doing so.

If you like reading wicked stories dripping with raw descriptions, or are just curious about this book, go ahead and read it. But if you're squeamish, stay away from it. Luckily, I've been reading and enjoying horror for many years, so I could keep what I was reading at a distance.

I have to admire Barbie Wilde for writing such an intense thriller, starring a very awful person. I'm not sure if it was because of the brain damage he got from the accident, or just because he's one sick puppy... but Michael is despicable. I'm glad he's a fictional character.

Having said that, this was a great book! The fact that the author hooked me in and kept me intrigued all the way through--no matter how uncomfortable I got--says just how good a writer Barbie is!

4.0 su 5 stelle Review of The Venus Complex 21 maggio 2013
Di Nicholas King - Pubblicato su

Literary serial killers are a strange conundrum for readers. On the one hand we should be repulsed by their actions. On the other hand they make for excellent character studies. It's rare to find serial killer characters that capture the public's attention (Dexter and Hannibal Lecter come to mind). Barbie Wilde's The Venus Complex delves deeply into the neuroses and mental degradation of a serial killer. It's a bold but flawed work and I found myself enjoying the novel for the most part.
Recently I reviewed Hellbound Hearts, an anthology series of short stories related to Clive Barker's Hellraiser setting. Barbie Wilde's story "Sister Cilice" stood out from the bunch due to its strong connection to the deeply sexual themes explored in Barker's original tale. My significant other informed me that Wilde had written a full length novel. Wilde's first novel continues her exploration of the twisted depths of human sexuality and the connection sexual desire has with horror.

5.0 su 5 stelle Sick AND Smart - Nice! (...and naughty) 4 gennaio 2013
Di Devi-Ant - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As a fan of true crime books, I found it a treat to read this impressive, fictionalized account of the evolution of a sociopath. Anti-hero Michael Friday is a simultaneously engaging and horrifying character. A good chunk of the time I shared his outrage in regards to a plethora of messed up socio-political/socio-cultural issues he rails against and felt myself bonding with the guy --until he quickly reminded me how truly disturbing and messed up he himself also is. It's sick and twisted for sure but, with wit and style and ample food for thought, it's also a fast, always provocative and utterly engaging read. They so need to make a LAW & ORDER SVU episode out of this -- or better still, A Jonathan Demme movie. Or better better still -- a Barbie Wilde movie (great name incidentally!) Fans of MAN BITES DOG, AMERICAN PSYCHO and HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER will likely enjoy this -- but even those who don't might appreciate its more relatable protagonist. It's not for the meek of heart or stomach, but it's definitely for the keen of mind.

After reading Ms. Wilde's short stories in Hellbound Hearts, Mutation Nation, and The Mammoth Book of Body Horror I was eagerly anticipating her first full length novel. Needless to say I was not disappointed. I purchased it on Friday and devoured it by Sunday. I was so intrigued by the killer and what exactly he was going to do or "say" next that I couldn't put it down. I laughed, I cringed, and I even learned a little. Professor Friday's social commentary was at times both brilliant and deranged. The character has many layers and completely draws you in to his thinking. The method of his madness was original and frightening and reading all about it through his eyes was fascinating. Without giving too much away I would love to see a sequel! I hope Ms. Wilde continues to write full length novels as she has a wholly original brain.
