Description

Mark Murray loves his girlfriend, Rebecca Lucio, but she doesn’t love him. She believes their love has withered away, and she has already fallen for another man, but she struggles to formally end her relationship with Mark. But Mark knows everything already - the lies, the deceit, the cheating. He has a plan to punish Rebecca in the most violent, disgusting way possible. He is going to make her sick...unbelievably sick.

Jon Athan, the author of Dr. Sadist and Scattershot, reinvents the definition of "lovesick" in this disgusting, gag-inducing, and extremely violent horror novel.

Warning: This novel contains graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.

Ever Love Someone Who Hurt You?

Usually when books give me a warning about the graphic nature of a book, I think yeah right, you should read some of the stories I have read. Just like when someone tries to tell me that something is hot, really, try eating some of the things I eat. Well I will tell you that for the average person this is quite spicy and will burn you on the way in and on the way out. This was a disturbing story and gruesome to boot. I have heard plenty of gruesome and disturbing stories and this one was up right up with those. I wouldn’t say this was the most graphic story I have heard, but I did actually have to pause it midway and take a break for something a bit more light hearted. Not something I’m using as an endorsement, but merely a warning for those who can’t handle really sick and twisted stories. I you ever asked yourself, why am I listening to this awful story, this isn’t for you.

The story itself is your basic revenge story amped up on black tar, meth, and a whole bunch of STDs. A lover spurned exacts his revenge in an extremely violent and gory way. I have to hand it to the imagination of the author, the closest thing I can really compare this to is Se7en. Right off the bat, you are thrown into a dark scenario and it just gets darker from there. You get taken to some really quaint places in the neighborhood that really set the scene for the depravity you encounter. None of the story was scary, but you will want to take a shower after and maybe rinse, lather, and repeat a few times. The only thing the bothered me was the seemingly endless supply of cash that Mark had for a burger flipper.

While the main focus is really on the shock value of the scenes, you do get enough of the characters to know that neither of them are really good. Typically, with revenge stories I like there to be at least one redeeming character who you can latch onto, not so much here. I couldn’t sympathize with any of the characters and while none of them started out evil, Mark definitely gets there. While I liked his resolve and psychotic ways, the further his plan progressed the more I drifted away from him and felt sorry for Rebecca. By the time the story ended, nothing surprised me and while odd, I didn’t quite mind it. It was a mixed bag of emotions on a nauseating ride.

Matthew Berry did a good job with the narration. I liked his narrator voice and his subtle changes in tone for the characters. As I didn’t think the characters were meant to be the focal point, I’m glad there wasn’t over the top character voices. Impressed with Berry's ability to read this type of story with a steady voice. I think he told the story how it should have been and with his confident straight forward voice, it was that much more obscene.

Love? Sick!

I have meet my match in horror! I could do nothing but frown and gag through most of this story. But, this is my kind of book, as long as it's fiction. This isn't the scary kind of horror, it's the horror of what one person can do to another. The writing is really good and the storyline never boring. I listened to this in one setting, it probably won't cause nightmares, but this will linger in my mind for days causing shivers throughout my entire body, inside and out!

IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH, DON'T LISTEN. IF YOU HAVE AN AVERSION TO STRONG SICK AND DEPRAVED TREATMENT TO ANOTHER PERSON, DON'T LISTEN. IF YOU'RE UNDER 18, WAIT A FEW YEAR'S BEFORE TRYING TO LISTEN.

Matthew E. Berry deserves an award for his performance with this audible.

Lovesick and Disgustingly Crazy

Rebecca does not love Mark although he loves her. She cannot bring herself to end things with him. He saw her having sex with another man when he followed her after seeing her have dinner with him. He comes up with a plan to punish her. Mark is disgusting and totally insane! He has a twisted and demented mind. This book held my attention throughout wondering what would happen next.

One of the most disgusting things I've ever read..

...and we were thoroughly warned. When I started 'Lovesick' I knew what I was getting myself into. Jon Athan makes us fully aware that this is a seriously gruesome horror story not for the feint of heart. Honestly, when I read these warnings I usually think something like, "yeah, you wish you were that scary!" Well, 'Lovesick' IS scary and more pertinently here, it contains the kind of graphic content that it warned us about. Like, actually.

I choose not to re-live what happened in this book because it was truly horrifying (this is a positive thing for me) and will only say that unless you're honestly into some disturbing content, this isn't for you. If you're sensitive to... well, pretty much anything this book will get ya.

I will say this, too: if this was a movie, I don't think I would have enjoyed it at all. It would be torture porn, from top to bottom. But because it's a book, it worked well. Matthew E. Berry's performance is absolutely outstanding here. I will definitely be seeking out more books narrated by him!

Twisted and Disturbing

Very, very dark and twisted. Perfect for fans of cringy horror.

It’s been a full day since I finished listening to this audiobook, and I can’t stop thinking about it. There were so many wtf moments, moments where I cringed, and moments where I was like Nooo. It also made me rethink ever eating at a fast food restaurant.

After Mark finds out that his girlfriend is cheating on him, he’s devastated. That pain quickly turns to anger and then a desire for revenge. He kidnaps her, holding her hostage where he uses different, worsening methods of torture every day. As he spirals deeper and deeper into his madness, his methods get worse.

Narration was great. Characters were vivid and stood out. Especially Mark and his depravity.

This isn’t a book I would recommend to people who can’t handle gore. If cringey horror is your style though, I highly recommend this short read.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Disgusting & Disturbing

You really do need to take the warning at the beginning of the book seriously. This is not something for the squeamish, faint heated or the easily offended. There are descriptions of sexual torture in this book and some of the scenes are a bit hard to listen to.

I will say that in the case of the revenge dished out here, less would have been more and probably made for a better book.

For fans of the twisted and demented, this ones for you.

I was provided this audio book in return for my honest opinion and review.

Mixed feelings on this roller coaster.

There are some parts that got incredibly dull and straight up boring but once it picked back up again it really had me thinking wtf, wtaf a lot, and that’s a lot of what this book is moments of disbelief, shock and more gruesome than hell. And as to the comments about it being “unrealistic” because of how much money he was using that’s dumb, having like 5-10 thousand dollars in savings isn’t that crazy for a cook probably in his 30s or so.
Narration was ok but there was some pronunciation issues here and there especially near the end.
I didn’t dislike it and it was an interesting change of pace I’d give it a shot if you aren’t sure you just might scar yourself a little.

A dark descent into intense depravity

This is extreme horror. Its hyper descriptive with great writing. Wasn't scary so much as it was just really REALLY disturbing. I actually groaned in repulsion out loud a good dozen times while listening. The narration was amazing all in all. It definitely pulled you into the story.

When I first read the summary and read the warning at the bottom, I assumed it was a gimmick to catch the attention of those looking for something dark. I assure you, it is not a gimmick. This is NOT a book for everyone. Its a book for those that read American Psycho and thought "Well that wasn't so bad". If you're easily offended in any way, this story isn't for you. If you burn through a lot of content and you are looking to kill a few hours in the mind of a psychopath, this a book to consider.

I plan on checking out some of the authors other works at some point when my happy vibes are restored.

I requested a free copy of the book for an honest review.

This was truly a sick story!

But in a way I liked it. This disturbed man set out to destroy EVERYONE because of his broken heart. It was disturbing how he made her suffer and how he obtained certain things to torcher her. My Goodness!!! very much worth the buy or credit, if your into sick revenge.
