This was my first time reading a book by Max Booth III and I assure you it won't be the last. This short book is so dark and twisted that I found myself audibly gasping a few times. It sounds dramatic, but that's really what happened.
Considering this entire story takes place in a cramped bathroom is crazy to me. Usually, authors need at least a few settings to tell a tale, but not Booth. No, he brings you the most dysfunctional characters right in the confines of their porcelain throne. I won't tell much about the plot, because honestly, I would know how to summarize it. Just know that Booth doesn't shy away from anything.
The dad is horrible, the mom is in denial, the brother is excessively annoying, and the daughter is dramatic (I think I would be too). I think this is a must-read for any horror fan, and I'm glad I finally did read it. The only problem I had was the ending. I just didn't like it.
