It was A LOT of torture with a little bit of stoner philosophy thrown in. Most of the torture is not very imaginative. A main philosophical point is made fairly early on (I won't reveal it and spoil the book), but it takes hours before the next point is made.
The narrator frequently mispronounced common words. His voice often sounded robotic. The production value was also terrible - there was a lot of hissing and pops, particularly between chapters.
For fans of the torture genre, or people not familiar with common philosophical themes surrounding torture, it may provide some food for thought.
No judgement of personal tastes nhere, but torture horror is not my cup of tea. If it's yours you may enjoy this book.
It was an interesting premise, but it became a survival story in the middle and I lost interest.
Williams is particularly good at narrating the main character's voice. The other voices are well-performed and not distracting.
Some of the fighting in the middle. I think seeing a ton of horror movies and reading quite a few horror novels have ruined me on standard horror action.
I may try and finish this at a later date. I enjoyed the premise and feel that the author did a good job of staying in the lead character's voice. There's a lot of promise here, I was too bored in the middle to stick with it.
