Publisher's Summary

Boy meets girl. They fall in love. They move in together and start a new life. They're beautiful and they have new things, expensive things, the best of everything, whatever they want. But that's only the surface. Beneath the surface is something much different. Something much darker. Theirs is a love like no other and only one of them will survive it.

There is a lot of poop!

I don’t why I pick up books like these. It’s some strange compulsion that I cannot ignore. Some are better than others. This one falls right about in the middle but scores all the points for the gross-out. An unhinged man enters the home of a young lady caring for her ill granny. He’s not there to make friends and have some tea either! He’s a dude who takes what he wants and walks away. He can do this because he has some sort of power that allows him to remain unseen once he walks away from the scene of his atrocities. I can’t fully wrap my head around that concept but I kept reading to find anyhow. So you can probably guess he is there for rapiness but he ends up finding more. Erica figures she’s not going to fight this guy because it will only be worse for her and she’s a little intrigued by the excitement of it all. After some extremely dubious con sex occurs and Walt realizes she shares his super power and they head off into the sunset and live happily ever after doing whatever the heck they want without consquence. Well, not really. Love isn’t exactly easy when you’re a murderous sociopath who likes to eat people and glory in your own filth. What follows is a horribly gross, murderous and twisted road trip filled with wicked turns and cruel acts that were nearly too much even for me. I’m talking poop covered mattresses, a poop filled room, poop piles tinged with blood. There is poop. There is too much poop! Poop isn’t something I like very much. I see enough poop. I raised two kids and currently have five pets. I need no more poop in my life. Anyhow, what this book is really about is a narcissistic psycho who gets increasingly more depraved page by page. To be honest, I found it a little boring in spots. There was much debauchery but spending time in these peoples heads was sometimes tedious. They weren’t very interesting to me and I’m not quite sure what compelled me to finish so please don’t ask. I do not know what is wrong with me but I do feel like I need my brain scrubbed right now. If you’re a similar weirdo and think you might want to push your limits this book will mostly likely do that for you! The copy I listened to was narrated by the author who reads this tale of deviant deeds in a dead tone that suits the monsters inhabiting the story.

Boring - no climax

The narrator sounds bored and monotone. The story itself lacked any real cliffhanger or exciting moments to keep me engaged. It was gross and I think meant to be "shocking"...and though it certainly wasn't predictable it was rather far fetched and unbelievable. The kind of strange "fantasy" elements really ruined the vibe of the story as well. I wouldn't waste your time.

Never Ceases to Amaze

If you could sum up Sociopaths in Love in three words, what would they be?

twisted, sexy, cannibalistic

What other book might you compare Sociopaths in Love to and why?

The Bible because there's a lot of necrophilia

Have you listened to any of Andersen Prunty’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

It's really priceless to hear the author's own voice telling his story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

For the Love of God: Don't See This Movie

Any additional comments?

I can't think of a better way to spend six hours. The dynamic relationship between the main characters kept me wondering what was going to happen next. I dare you to find a dull moment in this story. When I wasn't almost vomiting I was laughing, when I wasn't laughing I was crying and promising myself I'd stop reading things like this. Exactly what I look for in a book!
