The Cannibal Within Mark Mirabello
The Cannibal Within - Mark Mirabello

The only review I can give this book is "what the fuck did I just read?!?"

This has to be one of the most insane book's I've ever read. The plot and subject matter of this book was interesting, but apart from that I was lost to just what the man was writing about. I mean I can only guess, he had a wanton need to be marquis de Sade?! Not even close. But his rantings in this book almost hit's to his score.

I can't believe Mark Mirabello has Ph.D obviously it cost him his sanity.

The one thing annoyed me the most in this book is he referenced Atlantis book shop in London. As having an underground lair that leads to his demon's lair utter trash.

it is creepy because it's written by a man that clearly has issues that need to be addressed.

The Cannibal Within
The Cannibal Within - Mark Mirabello Hmmm. There is lots of viscous and grotesque bloody discharge here for sure. Normally, I would be more down with that, but this novella seemed disjointed to me and was not written particularly well. The subject matter was actually very interesting but the execution lost me somewhere and I became, not bored exactly, but indifferent. I don't even know how this still gets three stars, but it does.

The Cannibal Within
The Cannibal Within - Mark Mirabello The Cannibal Within - Mark Mirabello I have mixed feelings about this book. I liked the occult bits of the story but got bored with the extensive look at the transhumans, their culture, religion, etc. It just seemed to go on and on.

I am not sure where I got the ebook edition that I read. I am pretty sure it came through Amazon but I can't tell for certain. The edition that I had was full of errors: run on words, broken words, misspellings (capital G's were consistently replaced with Q's and capital I's with T's.) and others. I realize the book is written as a diary and as such, some errors would be intentional. But, I don't think this is the case here. It looks to be a poorly done scan.

The Cannibal Within
The Cannibal Within - Mark Mirabello This book is 67 ereader screens full of pure win. An intensely allegorical story, it seamlessly blends christian apocrypha and thelemic laws. Using our cultures most sacred taboos, vividly scrawled across the page in a matter of fact tone that made me feel prurient while piquing my curiosity, this book explores the nature of the will to power in the nietzschean / reichean sense.

I definite must read for anyone interested in the darker recesses of the human mind. I think this book would be good for people who like Clive Barker, Aleister Crowley, Friedrich Nietzsche and Wilhem Reich.

The Cannibal Within - Mark Mirabello One of the things that I love the most about GoodReads and its forums, is that it allows you to discover literature that otherwise would have passed right by you, for better and for worse. Which of the two this little books fall under is not very easy to determine. It's one of those books that you can either love or hate.

This is a book that essentially deals with themes as diverse as sexual depravities, gore, science fiction, mythology, evolutionary "theory", existentialism and of course cannibalism. It's actually quite surprising to see how often existential questions are actually being brought forward in this short novella. It's also surprising to see how the author actually managed to be not as explicit in his depiction of the gore and depravity as he could have been, which is quite a feat considering how descriptive it is. This book is certainly not the gore-fest that I imagined it would have been. There are books that I find far more gory than this one - such as American Psycho and Perfume: The Story of a Murderer; it was difficult reading those, this one, however, was both easy and quick to read.

Do I like this book? No, not so much to be honest, for I found the story to be too thin and too eager to shock and revolt. It's only 144 pages long with lots of space on each page, and when the last 40-or-so pages start getting rather boring then you can really see how thin this story actually is and how little it actually has to tell you. It's as if this story tries too hard to be something that it is not. It tries to shock, it tries to be meta-fiction and it tries to gross you out. Frankly, I think it fails on all accounts.

Verdict: 1.5 stars rounded up to 2 for creativity.
