Book Description

Synopsis:
Fashion, photography, futurism, models and martial arts. All this and a demon from hell—lock your doors and snuggle in for the night. Daniel Couto’s novel, Solipsum will have you up reading until morning.

It’s ten years just past now and Charlie, a beautiful young woman in New York City lands the job of a lifetime—working as a photo assistant on a highly experimental advertising campaign that features the world’s hottest models. But one of these models is not what he seems—he takes frequent trips to Hell and he’s got one hell of an agenda.

Couto’s imagination is a wild ride filled with characters that jump off the pages to visit your dreams (and nightmares)—stunning models, shark-like superagents, ninja assassins and demons dressed to the nines. Dry black humor, a deeply erotic undercurrent and a razzle-dazzle plotline all lead to a fantastic conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible book June 29, 2009
Format:Hardcover
I absolutely must recommend 'Solipsum' to everyone who is into horror, action, mystery, sci fi, fantasy, and/or erotica because this book has it all in spades. On my second read I still couldn't put it down. Couto has a gift for words that has you biting your nails, tearing up, and laughing out loud on a regular basis. Loved it!

This book makes for a perfect vacation read. Fashion, demons, mind-control, love, passion and sex.. what more could you want in a beach book? The story is very original, so much so I am at loss to compare it to anything else I've ever read (maybe sci-fi romance novel meets Steven King?); it kept me reading, wondering what odd thing or idea might be presented next.

My favourite thing about the book is the way Couto writes, everything from people to light is described in a way that makes you at feel like you could touch it. I am not often a fan of books that do this kind of thing, but its the WAY it's done is really very entertaining...the comparisons are sometimes so crazy and visceral I found myself laughing out loud... "a man with a face like chocolate suet", "walls that curved and ran like ridges in thick cream, slowly poured over the rusted crenellations of some long forgotten machine". These are not even close to the best ones. Next time through, I'm using a highlighter... some of the passages are worth repeating (and re-reading).

The cover art gives you nothing to go on. I recommend you "look inside" and sample a few pages. Great fun.
