Book Review – WOOM by Dulcan Ralston

Oh WOOM..how I adore thee.

This is a story about a guy who hires a ‘woman of the night’ to meet him in a motel room. While things are happening, he shares three stories of what have happened to people in that same room.

The stories were all horrifying and disgusting–I loved the weirdness of it all. I went into this with the expectation of it being beyond disturbing and hard to read, but really it wasn’t TOO bad. I don’t know what that says about me but I found it gross and manageable. If you’re not use to reading extreme horror then this will throw you for a loop.

I oddly enough figured out some of the twists but I still enjoyed seeing how it would all end. The ending was pretty good and definitely wasn’t what I was expecting. This story is all about trauma, love, family and relationships–this actually has a few deeper moments (all pun intended) that I wasn’t expecting.

If you have triggers, then you should look up the ones for this. There are a lot of them. Also, if you can’t stomach ‘poo’ scenes…well either pass this up or read it with a trash can next to you.

4/5
