Blurb from Goodreads

In a quiet house on a quiet street Frank and Julia are having an affair. Not your ordinary affair. For Frank it began with his own insatiable sexual appetite, a mysterious lacquered box- and then an unhinged voyage through a netherworld of imaginable pleasures and unimaginable horror… Now Frank - or what is left of Frank - waits in an empty room. All he wants is to live as he was before. All Julia can do is bring him her unfulfilled passions… and a little flesh and blood…

My Review

I feel like this is my first Barker book but I have absolutely seen the movie. My concentration has been all over the place & I needed a book in between. I seen the movie years ago but remember it quite vividly because it was pretty graphic and I was pretty young.

The book is very close to the movie, I always thought Kirsty was the daughter but reading this I wasn't so sure as it was a bit dodgy although Frank is an absolute creep.

If you haven't seen the movie prepared to be horrified as some of the scenes are absolutely boggin, if you have seen the movie you know of which I speak and sometimes, on paper it is actually worse, more graphic.

For a small read it has a lot of detail and gets going pretty quickly, some very shady characters, the cenobytes are creepy/horrifying and coming! 3.5/5 for me, I hadn't realised there was so many movies so I need to catch up on them too!
