Publisher's Summary

A young hospital security guard with a disturbingly unique taste in women. A maternity doctor with a horrifically unusual appetite. When the two of them meet, they embark on a journey of self-discovery while shattering societal norms and engaging in destructively aberrant behavior. As they unwittingly help each other understand a world in which neither seems to belong, they begin to realize what it truly means to be alive....

And that it might not always a good thing.

EXTREME Horror

I imagine DEAD INSIDE will have very different opinions in the reviews. The story is very well written but May end up being too extreme for even some of the more extreme horror fans. DEAD INSIDE is like sitting at a gross out contest for over four straight hours, some very extreme, twisted scenes that made even this hardcore extreme horror fan cringe. The narrator for this read is absolutely perfect, very monotone as the narrator for this story should sound. Fans of the very extreme will love this one!

Please don’t read this book

Please don’t read this book. It’s not horror and it has a bad story. This book I gross for the sake of being gross. It has no real impact other than trying to gross out the reader.

I need a shower

This is one of the craziest most twisted minded books I’ve ever read. I feel like if I recommend this to anyone they’re going to think I’m a mental and they might be right.

*groan* spoilers below

First of all the narrator sounds like Brad Neely doing Wizard People, Dear Reader. Which just made it sound ridiculous and comical.

On top of this the book reads like it was written by a 14 year old white boy trying his best to be edgy. Is it difficult to look up that a maternity doctor is called an obstetrician? I saw another review that said they were sick of seeing the writer say “I fuck dead girls and you eat babies,” and I agree. This isn’t a scary book, it’s gore written by a child mind for the sake of freaking people out. Try harder, Chandler.

Gross and Annoying

This has to be one of the most disgusting books I have ever undertaken.
I got a recommendation off of Tiktok of a book that the poster could not even finish (along with Woom by Duncan Ralston which was far better in my opinion). "Challenge accepted" I said.
I've always been the type that is not easily grossed out and gore has a certain morbid fascination. This seemed like it was gross out for gross out sake though and I found myself nauseous for most of the reading. Still I decided to listen and see if there was any merit in the story as a whole. Unfortunately, for me there was not.
The characters come across as very annoying, special snowflakes that just happen to also have some very disgusting interests. By the end I was telling them out loud to "shut up" because I was so tired of their "I'm so different from everyone else" attitude. The main character seems like perhaps he may have some kind of evolution, but the author ended up pulling back on that idea before long. Maybe the author realized it was unrealistic after setting the guy up to be a sociopath. Why even bother humanizing him at all? The one silver lining in the book was that he kind of wrote it from the perspective of someone who has to ACT like he understands empathy but doesn't, and even that he failed to do completely.
The female character was at first a tiny bit sympathetic if you forgot about what her "kink" was, but by the end I couldn't stand her either. I kept reading hoping there would be some kind of payoff at the end of the book but the ending was just an intensely grotesque scene that although I was grossed out it has failed to fully stick with me a week later. I don't know if the author wanted the reader to be satisfied with that ending or if he was happier leaving us annoyed, but whatever the intent it felt very contrived.
The "twist" was horribly predictable and dull, and the last lines of the book made me want to rip my hair out. I had to make up the final ending in my head so as not to go mad with frustration.
Maybe this book is for someone, but I couldn't say who that is. I'd skip it and read the aforementioned Woom if you want a gross out book that at least has some good characterization and writing.
At least the narrator fit with the story, I gave him a good score. He made it somewhat bearable to listen to.

Don't Bother. (Spoilers?)

Ok. I will preface this with the fact that, yes, it was horrifically gruesome, but that wasn't what upset me. What bothered me was the author's lack of research, or just giving an eff. (Spoiler ahead.. kinda..) It was like he just tried to cram the most amount of shock value with the least amount of effort. If I heard the exchange "I eat dead babies." "And I f*** dead girls." one more time, I was gonna scream. There was zero research into the fact that she was a "Maternity doctor, dammit!" and had (paraphrasing) had her first taste of baby flesh while dissecting cadavers in med school.. ok well cadavers are embalmed.. sooo.. (just one example). Also, just the weird edgelord/incel that is the main character is absurd. Ok, so the author wanted to pass him off as a sociopath who couldn't pick up on human emotions or body language.. then when it was convenient to the story, the guy was super intuitive, then just to circle back around after making an astute observation, he would say something like "But what do I know about human emotion." I dunno, I went to the author's Twitter after reading this and was like "Oh, well that makes sense now.". Look, if you want some f****d up version of 50 shades (where the smut is there, but the writing is deplorable), go for it. I guess he already has my money, but the book was terribly written.

Grown up emo gore porn

One of the few books that was recommended to me that I didn’t enjoy. It was as if the entire teenage population of Ohio gathered together to write a book as disgusting and edgy as possible. I hope that Daniel Caravetta got a big fat check for reading this trash because his narration was the best part of the awful 5 hour experience.

Meh

Okay so I was directed here via tiktok as an example of extreme horror. I was interested in how demented the story could be, and seen it was praised for being so well written. Guys, it’s bad. The narrator is a peach and really brings the story to life, but the story is just sadly boring.

The intense parts aren’t that bad if you’re familiar with true crime stuff. The main character of the story is so damn insufferable through most of it, coming off as more of an edge lord. There are several references to the literary icons that influenced the author, but that’s where the depth ends really. I get the commentary, it was just done poorly.

Dude... I don't get offended by much, but...

I got a little over halfway through this smut until I said "Nope! Absolutely not!" Yes I knew that this was going to be about shock value, but let's just say I found the line in chapter 26...

Just a terrible book

This book is just awful. It's a joke. It's Belinda Blinked as a gore story. if you want detailed scenes of graphic depraved horror then go nuts, just as long as you can sit through sections of absolutely pointless dialogue, and don't even go looking for any kind of character development or story line. honestly the author must be an Incel grand dragon, this whole book reaks of self superiority and pretentiousness. it's just really bad, save your money.

Utterly disturbing

This was disturbing but in an incredibly compelling way. It's a testament to the author's (and narrator's)talent that you immediately empathise with the central characters in spite of their very dark proclivities

wtf did i just listen to

I read this genre. This is the most depraved, gut-churningly vile thing I have ever listened to, seen or imagined, but I cannot fault this audiobook on any level. It is gross. It is hilarious. It is written beautifully and is performed so well that I sped through it without pause. I could not stop listening even though at times I SO wanted to.
