Publisher's Summary

Miles Landish can't help himself. He eats and eats and eats and eats just to fill an empty, gaping, hole in his self esteem. Nothing ever seems to fill that hole, even the five star meals Miles' wealthy parents make possible. So, as a last resort, Miles attends Camp Tum Tum, a weight control camp for spoiled teens. What happens there is only hinted at in high social circles, but the truth must be told. Facing starvation, the campers at Tum Tum make a decision that very few human beings have made. That decision turns Camp Tum Tum into... Cannibal Fat Camp!

    "Poorly done, all around."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This could never have been a 4 or 5 star experience.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Don't know


    What didn’t you like about Christopher Boyle’s performance?

    Many things. Worst of all were the cheesy effects. Especially notable was a couple rounds of gunfire, which was just some guy saying, "Pa-kow! Pa-kow!" Might've been written like that.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Cannibal Fat Camp?

    Most of the psychological profile came across as tedious and unnecessary, at least on audio.


    Any additional comments?

    Was often reviewed as "horror/comedy" on Goodreads. And got high marks. "Bad horror" is more like it. Maybe it just didn't translate well to audio. Or suffered from poor narration performance. Or maybe the people who reviewed it at Goodreads have low standards; they talked about the "surprise ending" which I could see coming a mile away. There were comic moments, but it often seemed to be either gratuitous or tedious, giving me information I didn't want or need. Some literary devices - such as letters and recipes - kept it from being as bad as it could've been, so I gave it a two star rating. It was like a schlocky cannibal film from the 1970's, so if that's what you're looking for, okay. I was expecting more of a crafty blend of comedy and horror, like the magnificent "Spider Baby" or "Carry on Screaming" movies from the 1960's.
