Publisher's Summary

Doug Backus is a normal young man trying to lead a clean Christian life. But when mysterious and gruesome deaths begin occurring in his town of Clover, Kentucky, he learns that his life can never be as wholesome as he wants. Along with his heathen friend Crank and pariah neighbor Whitney, he becomes involved in an exploration of the town's secrets that will either lead them to their doom or answer all the questions Doug has about almost everything. Only one thing becomes certain: Salvation is not an option. From Andersen Prunty, author of F--kness and Hi I'm a Social Disease, comes a sleazy horror comedy about friendship, religion, and satanic orgies.

Take the Cash and the Car and Leave

Wow. Wasn’t expecting that at all. This is a twisted story, loved it, but felt like I needed to take a shower after listening. It isn’t overly gory but is very graphic and not for the faint of heart. There is a lot of, and I mean A LOT of perverted orgies including goat-men. The publisher’s summary says that this is horror comedy. I think the comedy comes in that this is so over the top with the graphic sex scenes that I suppose that level of sleaze just becomes silly. For what it is though it was a fun listen. I enjoyed the plot. Not sure if I would have rather it go more down a darker path versus the one it did, but I think it would make Troma proud. It had a bit more sex in it that I prefer, but that aside I liked how everything played out. The town goes from wholesome to complete depravity fairly quickly and it is an interesting ride along the way. Again, if you like Troma or you know and like Frank Henelotter films, this is in the same vein. Over the top, unique and fun story, filled with outrageous scenes that you just kinda gotta go with. I like the juxtaposition of Doug to the other characters in the town. Doug is a sweet and innocent boy while his best friend definitely grew up on the wrong side of town and soon everybody else seems to be Doug’s polar opposite. The characters are really interesting, in a twisted completely messed up way, but interesting. I rooted for Doug the entire time and even though he was tempted constantly, I always was hoping he would stay true to himself, the rest of the town was true to theirselves. I’m a big fan of author’s narrating their own books. I feel like you are able to get their perspective of the characters more through their voice. I actually didn’t realize that the author voiced this book until I was writing the review. I think he has a great voice for narration and did all the characters justice and provided the tone and cadence that was needed. I’m looking forward to more of his books and narration. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

An enjoyably bloody wild and whacky ride.

This being my first Prunty, I wasn’t sure what to expect and was more than pleasantly surprised how well this was written and how effortlessly the characters were fleshed out. There was a whole lot more sex and violence than I was anticipating and no shortage of offbeat, dark humor either. All of this added up to an enjoyable wild and whacky ride.

Doug Backus has been raised as a good, God fearing, Christian young man. For 18 years he has managed to shy away from sinful activities, minus the occasional beer and masturbatory fantasy. Doug and his friends are going to need all the goodness they can muster to fight off the terrible evil threatening to destroy the small town of Clover, Kentucky. Once a quiet little town, now plagued with murderous Satan worshippers bent on preforming a centuries old ritual to literally open the gates of hell.

It took me a while to get the hang of Andersen's narration style, but once it kicked in I thought it was absolutely perfect for the story and really added to the ambiance of the tale.

An Old Milwaukie condom sculpture, penis sniffing Pork, goat home delivery, Chainsaw Enema, stink hand Perry and an old fashioned bloody orgy revival. Let the good times roll! A solid 4.5+ Stars and highly recommended.
