A beautiful tragic strange tale.

Geek Love - Katherine Dunn

Geek Love is the story of the Binewskis, a carny family whose mater- and paterfamilias set out–with the help of amphetamine, arsenic, and radioisotopes–to breed their own exhibit of human oddities. There’s Arturo the Aquaboy, who has flippers for limbs and a megalomaniac ambition worthy of Genghis Khan . . . Iphy and Elly, the lissome Siamese twins . . . albino hunchback Oly, and the outwardly normal Chick, whose mysterious gifts make him the family’s most precious–and dangerous–asset.



I got this for the Horror Aficionados Group read for march. I honesty have to say the first chapter in I was left very Confused and because i didn't understand what i was reading i atomically felt a dislike to the book. 




But me being me i wasn't going to give up on it and I didn't and for that I'm soo Thankful. if you give Geek love a chance you will be Totally drawn in to the story, some Might not like it due to the fact it's main chars and plot is based of a "freak carnival show family" and well Its not your prefect family This didn't phase me at all i loved it!


Only char i Took a total dislike too and I found to honesty be the most Nasty villain I've read yet was "Arturo" I found him Utterly Horrible.



Also the love Oly has for her daughter and the sad Measure's she goes to protect her daughter as well. with Out giving the story away too much pick this book up and give it a go! You will find it a Truly Beautiful Tragic strange tale.
