Smashwords book reviews by M.H. Dartos

  • The Hard Ride on Feb. 25, 2013
    (no rating)
    This emotional rock o roll brings it big and rocks the sex oh love thing. Yes!
  • Sloughing Off the Rot on April 21, 2013

    Lance Carbuncle continues to surprise. Continuing to paint with a wide brush topics and vistas that would sicken most people, you need only pay attention to the intricately layered concepts and neologisms he creates to glimpse the depth of passion he brings to the table. What you will find within the fractured leaves of this work will excite, entertain, enervate, enliven and sicken with a generous smattering of comically offensive observations that cut across all stratospheres. It thus becomes clear that Carbuncle is an equal opportunity offender. Much like his groundbreaking work, Smashed, Squashed, Splattered, Chewed, Chunked and Spewed, you will at once be stunned, then flummoxed, and finally mesmerized as the twisted logic he spins coils you into a snare so tight to be an epiphany in sweet pain. Yet churning beneath this smorgasbord of seemingly incongruous and tragic-comic elements is a palpable current of profundity: the search for self, identity, and what it means to be human. Not to mention a generous smattering of biblical allusion. Among the most noteworthy elements of the tale are its non-linear plot, and the influence on events of choices made by men, women and beasts. And as the word odyssey has come to refer to an epic voyage, it is a most fitting summation of this novel. What we have is a modern day Homer's Odyssey, with lead character John the allegorical Odysseus. I don't know about you, but I find comfort in the knowledge that Carbuncle is out there laughing at this oddity called life for us sinners. Audacious, innovative and satirically precise humorists such as he are a rare find indeed. In short, this work is not to be missed.
