Recent Comments "Goon"
I am almost ashamed that I laughed out loud a few times at some of the nasties in here. Almost. Not quite. It’s Edward Lee, man. What do you expect? Inappropriate on so many levels. It wouldn’t even be Edward Lee if you didn’t throw up in your mouth a little. Goon is no exception. Trust me.
I don't know exactly what to say about Goon. The word "like", here, seems a bit fetishist. Especially since the book is as rancid as a bag of cum-stained whortel sheets. How does one find something utterly disgusting and repulsive, yet be, dare I say, turned on by it? It wasn't gross, puke prose, or weird in that weird way you might think. It surprised me. The twist. Surprising. And funny. Weirdly touching, in that creepy old uncle way. You will probably hate this book because it's sick and disg [...]
Read 06/13, listened to 10/16A relatively short Edward Lee novel that isn't at all short on gross. Not as disgusting as The Bighead but not far from it. It's everything I hope for in an Edward Lee story and the new Audible edition is excellent. You'll never think about corn on the cob the same way again. You've been warned. I received a free copy from audiobookboom in exchange for an honest review.
I dont know anything about john pelan except that a search of his name here on just came up with a list of anthologies that he edited, I dont know if he edited this book or wrote half of it but if he wrote half I cant tell which half it is. For being one of edward lee's more extreme gross out type of books I am definitly impresed with anyone who can write on his level. This is a fairly short novel but the size seemed perfect to tell the story, it had a bit of graphic violence but was mostly sex [...]
Unfortunately Goon is not the kind of book you can break down in-depth, and I think that even Edward Lee would agree with me on this. It's definitely Lee; obscene, gross as hell and genuinely bizarre. I will say that the scene with one hick cop regaling another with a series of increasingly insanely gross anecdotes actually had me burst into laughter at its conclusion--it was that over-the-top and nauseating. The thing that definitely hurt this novel the most was probably the MASSIVE ENDING SPOI [...]
This was my first book of Edward Lee. A true page-turner with funny images on every alinea.A reporter and a detective are trying to get in touch with (6 feet 9) amateur-wrestler Goon, who is a suspect of homicides. But this isn't as easy as it seems. Reporter Melinda uses her body to come closer to Goon, via other amateur-wrestlers. While detective Straker is accompanied by the most sexy woman he can imagine. It's the only way for both to come near Goon, who is seen barely in public.This is quit [...]
Wieder mal ein genialer Festa Extrem Band, der nur so vor Brutalität, Sex, Gewalt und Blut trift. Die beiden Autoren wissen wie man die Leser zum zittern und mitfiebern bringt. Genialer Roman den ich allen Horrorfans ans Herz legen kann. Aber vorsicht: Nichts für Schwache Nerven.
Goon is 148 pages of simple entertainment. It tells the story of a mysterious wrestler dwelling in the bottom rung of competition. He takes a beating like no other a beating that would kill other mere men.It also tells the story of a trail of women showing up dead cut up with all identifying features missing. The trail of death points toward a connection with this dead end wrestling competition with its has been wrestlers and groupies. This is a fast paced book that is a great short read. It may [...]
It's ok. Funny more than sick. And the "reveal" was not fantastic. Of the limited books I've read from Edward Lee, The Bighead and Creekers were much better. If you're a pro wrestling fan it's worth it, otherwise, steer clear.
it was okay but i was hoping for more. i wanted the EDWARD LEE style. Not enough gore.
This book was way more fun than I was expecting! If you're into hardcore horror, this book is a must-read.
Hard to find Necro books are now appearing on Smashwords. ClickHerefor the Awesomeness.
I've read and really enjoyed a lot of Mr. Lee's works. The Goon is not his best work, by a long shot. It is really short and there are only a few really hardcore scenes and they weren't very long or very extreme. Other than these rare dirty gems, it was an okay read.
Edward Lee is the king of Gore. Fans know exactly what they're getting into as soon as they crack open one of his books. Lee takes every single rule of horror and throws it out the window, and with it goes the idea that in order to be successful you have to be politically correct. Lee can and does craft novels that are shocking, and violent, but that's why Lee is so good. Are his books implausible? Sure, but so what. Most fiction that you read is implausible anyway so who cares. Lee is a legend [...]
Edward Lee's stories from his rural Appalachia mythos (eg Creekers, Goon, The Minotauress, etc) are like cotton candy. Everyone knows the formula, everyone knows what to expect when they pick it up, and ultimately it's hard to recollect where one book starts and another ends. The writing is solid enough to not call any attention to itself, they're each easy to read and hard to put down. As far as I can tell, there's no real specific timeline to the mythos, and thus there's not any particular ord [...]
Review originally published at lomeraniel/audiobookreI was offered a free copy in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.Goon is the king of the low category of wrestling. He is tall, strong, powerful and absolutely indestructible. But Goon has a secret, because he is also a serial killer. Reporter Melinda and inspector Straker will try to demonstrate that Goon is behind all the recent murders, but they may need need to cross a dangerous line.There are not lots of books [...]
"This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”Well, I was warned about this one but noooooo I had to listen to the book and judge for myself! I got what I deservedOK, so I laughed, out loud, a lot. This was ridiculously humorous, the descriptions of certain things was just too much! who thinks of this? Edward Lee, that's who. Did I enjoy it? to a certain point, I did think the end was completely ridiculous. But [...]
How do you review a book like this? Sometimes I think Edward Lee must read a plethora of underground smut magazines, as this book is full of more repugnant (and sometimes hilarious) sexual colloquialisms than you can shake a stick at. At only around 150 pages it's a quick read- I read it in one sitting. Something can be said for brevity here as the disgusting descriptions of sexual congress did grate on my nerves after awhile. The passage where Straker beds corpulent woman-wrestler Ghoula was so [...]
Extreme Horror meets Wrestling!Ein, in meinen Augen, wahres Meisterwerk, das Edward Lee uns zusammen mit John Pelan hier präsentiert und zu Recht wurde das Buch in der „Festa Extrem Reihe“ veröffentlich! „Goon“ gehört neben „Monstersperma“ und „Header“ zu meinen Lieblingswerken von Edward Lee.Wie man es von Lees kürzeren Werken gewohnt ist, trieft die Story von Blut, Exkrementen, Körperflüssigkeiten und natürlich Lees schwarzem Humor.Ich habe mich beim Lesen von „Goon“ [...]
As per many of his previous works, don't expect cute little bunnies or puppies (unless you expect those adorable little bundles of fur to be thrown into a pillow case and repeatedly slammed against a tree!). This was one of my most recent Edward Lee titles and I enjoyed it much more than Header. In retrospect, I wish Header was not my first encounter with Ed Lee because it took me quite a while before I gave him another chance. I'm glad I did. Bear in mind that Goon was written when WWF was stil [...]
This book was ok but I found it a bit too slow to get into the story. I'm not really a wrestling fan but despite the plot being centered around the sport and it's grouplies, you don't need to like it to read this.I just found it all a bit too unbelievable. An ugly woman blackmails a cop into having sex with her in exchange for the dead girl's diary? Seriously man, you cuff her and get her to the police station and get a warrant for the diary! It was just too dumb for me plot wise.Not one of the [...]
I liked thisuntil the end. Some of the descriptions and language were so crazy that I couldn't help but laugh. It was interesting, gross, and humorous all at once. Unfortunately, once it went into a supernatural place seemingly out of nowhere, it kind of ruined it for me. Maybe if it had had more of a supernatural vibe before the end, I would have enjoyed the ending more.Joe Hempel was amazing (as always). He did great accents & had tons of different voices in this book. I think it was once [...]
Oh boy I hate to give that kind of ratings but this was a huge letdown . I found The premise and the story very very original and Lee crafts a great atmosphere of redneckness and depraved behavior . The characters are rather unbelievable , which is usual for mr Lee , but fun nevertheless. I laughed quite a few times . Everything is great and action packed ,but after two thirds of the book , it is a steady downhill . Either Lee got bored with it or was in a hurry to finish it . The revealing of t [...]
Gore. A cop and a reporter try to uncover the truth about the wrestler, Goon. The reporter finds the cop can be useful, and the cop learns a few truths about himself. A good story, but there was too much telling at the denouement as if the author did not feel like writing any more and just decided to tell it and get it over with.
If you like disgusting splatterspunk horror, black magic, dark humor and pro-wrestling sleaze, then this is the book for you. Otherwise, it's probably not your thing. Hell, it's not even really MY thing, but co-author John Pelan is great, so I gave it a read. It's a lot of fun if you have the stomach for it. :)
Wrestling is a moronic sport conceived for morons, plus I'm not too fond of brief novels. In short Goon is the worst (and, right now, the only unsatisfactory) book written by Mr. Lee I've ever read. Shit happens.
Did nothing for me and I tend to enjoy carnage. The story was just too weak to support the mayhem.
Wow. Edward Lee never fails to disturb.
Edward lee has never let me down!! This reminds me a lot of family traditions and I loved every minute of it! Lee is the B movie expert!
this book was great. over the top, gory, gross and most importantly, fun.
