SUMMARY Ï EXCEEDBDF.CO.UK ↠ Charlee Jacob

From the crumbling ruins of a Cambodian jungle temple to the arid canyons of west Texas exotic demons of the ancient past collide with modern devils Crippled residents in a small Cambodian village are trying to rebuild their lives in. Charlee Jacob Haunter Leisure 2003For years I have been searching for the book that would compete with Robert Devereaux s debut novel Deadweight out on the bleeding edge of Most Extreme Horror Novel No one has been willing to tread the same path of degradation misery and despair What anguish must it cause a writer because as we all know to convey emotions effectively the writer must feel them twice as strongly to write a novel of such unremitting relentless brutalityWell I finally found it Charlee Jacob has written such a viscerally disturbing book in Haunter that even I had to put it down a few times simply because what was going on was so disgusting And that folks takes some nasty material to achieveHaunter is a seuel of sorts to Jacob s first novel This Symbiotic Fascination Where that novel dealt with the depredations of baby brother Arcan Tyler in Haunter Jacob focuses on the two big brothers Vietnam vets Harry and Elliot Tyler Elliot after the war joined a ragtag band of mercenaries led by the brutally perverse Saab Gestetner Harry after a uick trip home related in This Symbiotic Fascination simply vanished into the jungle never to be seen again Or so everyone thinksThere s a new drug on the Cambodian streets called Soma One dose will do you After you take it you spend a while in screaming hysterics seeing the very bowels of hell But after that you become a being of radiant happiness one whose contentment literally shines And you stay that way for the rest of your natural life The only problem is it s really annoying the rest of Cambodia s drug lords So armed with only a supplier s name the biggest of them hires Gestetner and his mercs to find the source of the Soma and either appropriate it or stamp it out They find however a lot than just a drug operationA plot however thin and really nasty sounding events are not however enough to make a book a good novel What really causes Haunter to rise above the masses is Jacob s use of the Cambodian landscape and the Hindu mythology in which it is steeped to address and inventively answer all those existential uestions literature is supposed to address You know why are we here what are we doing etc Between that and Jacob s willingness to spend time building her characters in order mostly just to make you feel that little bit worse when the inevitable other shoe drops this book comes out a winner Better than This Symbiotic Fascination but if you want to get of a grip on Harry Tyler you ll want to read that one first anyway

    Wowwhat can I say about this book? I can basically begin with saying that just about every single one of my most horrifying gruesome nightmares were discussed in this book in excruciating but fascinating detail This book was so gruesome and vile that even I found myself skipping certain parts However Charlee Jacob pulls off all the nightmarish grue and gore very well with her exuisite poetic prose sometimes so enthralling that no

    Charlee Jacob's books have interesting themes told in extremely grotesue ways This one involves Khmer Rouge atrocities war duality Hindu gods and some crazy violence I have a pretty strong stomach for gore and the twisted and this was almost too much There's one scene involving maggots that I almost couldn't read That said she adds a new visi

    I give very few one stars and to be honest I'm only giving this because I just didn't enjoy reading the book I understand what the author was trying to do but the constant barrage of esoteric pseudo vedic babble made it unenjoyable to follow the plot Every time the plot would crescendo it fizzled because the events led not to conclusive events but rather into a psychotic sort melange of Hindu Tantra babbleI don't gene
