The Overwhelming Urge | [Andersen Prunty]

The Overwhelming Urge

It is a world where men wake up with laser beams for eyes and wives play sadistic practical jokes. It is a world where body parts randomly fall off and fathers turn into antelopes. In this world, vampires and spontaneous combustions are a constant threat. The Overwhelming Urge is a collection of bizarro flash fiction, containing ridiculous characters and absurd stories reminiscent of David Lynch and Franz Kafka.

Publisher's Summary

It is a world where men wake up with laser beams for eyes and wives play sadistic practical jokes. It is a world where body parts randomly fall off and fathers turn into antelopes. In this world, vampires and spontaneous combustions are a constant threat. The Overwhelming Urge is a collection of bizarro flash fiction, containing ridiculous characters and absurd stories reminiscent of David Lynch and Franz Kafka. Written at knifepoint in a burning room, this audiobook will make you think of a dirty comedian raving from Freud's couch.

    Where does The Overwhelming Urge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Considering the only three I have are from the same author I suppose I'd say number two. Go download them all.


    What does Andersen Prunty bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I find it so gratifying to be able to listen to the words as he intended them to be read. I have read the actual book but I find that I read it so incredibly fast wanting to know what the next horrifying outcome will be (and sometimes being met with completely normal ones). Being able to listen to Mr. Prunty helps me pace.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, cried, and several bodily fluids leaked from orifices which will remain unidentified for the purpose of this review.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to listen to more!
