About this deal

As they unwittingly help each other understand a world in which neither of them seems to belong, they begin to realize what it truly means to be alive…and that it might not always be a good thing. He makes the reader aware of how people who are different from the rest of us feel, if indeed they feel anything. We are introduced to our protagonist, a hospital security guard who is a necrophiliac, as he can not get aroused by living women despite trying on several occasions and he is content with his life, until one day he catches a doctor in the hospital named Helen committing acts of cannibalism in the morgue. I didn’t know what I was expecting when I picked up Dead Inside but it certainly wasn’t what I got, both in a good and bad sense.

I feel like all the blood in my body has rushed into my groin, and there’s an undeniable magnetism between our genitalia, pulling me toward her, beckoning me into her. this book crosses many rules of morality and humanity and has on page sexual violence that’s very graphic. Shamelessly, I'll admit that more than being disturbed or repulsed, I found myself laughing my lungs out while reading it. Whether it is a writing on the philosophy of physics, a bleak and joyless monologue on existentialism or something from the protagonist about his preference for coupling with cadavers rather than living flesh, I demand to be plucked outta my mind and transported along on the author's ship-of-the-imagination.But even though many scenes were gross, the main characters weird, and the whole setting utterly depraved I enjoyed the excellent prose and couldn't put the book down.

Not a bad splatterpunk horror if you're in the mood to feel something (namely nausea) but it's definitely not a book I would widely recommend and definitely won't be one I ever read again. I looked away numerous times saying in my head no way did I just read that because of how disgusting this book is. Of course, you can always counterargue about these things, I’m not trying to make a point in my review. In this bleak and disturbingly erotic debut novel, iconoclast Chandler Morrison provides readers with a dark exploration of the nature of death, individuality, and generational identity. he doesn’t report her to the authorities and they obviously strike up a very weird kinship, because they’re both fucking psychotic.the mc caught Helen “in the act” and the whole situation was obviously absurdly funny to me once again. I'm stating it so you can see why someone would want to involve in sex with someone who can't see or notice them.

It’s not a long read, I did it in a couple of sittings but you could spread it further because the chapters are quite short, so you can pick it up and put it down as required without having to stop part way through a section. His revulsion towards respiration, sigh, warmth, wetness or even blood circulation might seem amusing, almost comical at first, but on a second thought it is consistent with his sexual orientation. Falling into an abyss of social norms in this mundane world might feel safe and comfortable for some, while for others, any attempt to embrace what most consider as normal would be dreadful. Helen removes the baby from herself causing her to bleed out but before she does she consumes their child and the protagonist has sex with her corpse. He manages to lace a layer of pleasure into his reading that really fits the main character almost too well, and that’s definitely what you want with an Audiobook.He's able to accomplish this fucked-up exploration of self-discovery because of his job as a night shift hospital security guard. Along the way, lines will be crossed, taboos will be violated, and common decency will take an extended leave of absence. Ever so once in a while, I like getting into a new author and book without any (or the most minimal at least) form of background info check like reading the blurb or reviews.

We follow two people that find each other despite their gross idiosyncrasies - so at the heart of it, it’s a love story.Despite the protagonist being quite anti-social he tolerates Helen’s presence in his life even coming to enjoy her company. I plan on giving this proper rant review soon, but for now I'll simply say that this is yet another overhyped book written by a man that thinks far too highly of himself and his writing abilities.
