""Garrett Cook's A GOD OF HUNGRY WALLS is Clive Barker and Gaspar Noe teaming up to write the most transgressive possible Shirley Jackson tribute song. Smart and literate, Cook dismantles lesser practitioners of 'extreme' horror and offers readers who aren't into the subgenre a chance to reconsider its validity."- Adam Cesare, author of Mercy House and Tribesmen
One of Horror Underground's Top 20 books of 2015
"Part poetry, part splatterpunk novel, A God of Hungry Walls tells a haunted house story, but from the perspective of the house, orperhaps something evil that lives within it. Described as a "perverse,violent, and soul-crushing take on supernatural horror," A God of Hungry Walls, if not already on your radar, definitely needs to be. Pick up a copyand be whisked away into a terrifying journey of the unknown."- Moviepilot.com

This book is sadistic. If you are not a person who can handle extreme violence with a heavy side of destructive sex, then you need to stay away. But for those curious, the ones driving by the car crash who feel the dreadful pull to look, you will see sights that will continue to haunt you once the final scene fades to black.
The best part of this novel is that the tale is told from the view of the haunting. That is why this extreme violence and sex fits the narrative. One would not expect an evil spirit, or possessed dwelling to be filled with jolly thoughts and candy. This house loathes its inhabitants, and like a sadistic child with a butterfly, only wants to pull the wings off.
This novel also reminded me a lot of the phenomenon of the intrusive thought. For most people, a horrible thought will pop into mind and like an average breath it is forgotten and never analyzed, but this novel illustrates what could happen if one does not ignore the voice, and it is pretty disgusting.
I give this book five out of five stars, for it feels like a haunting, which modern horror rarely ever appears to get correct anymore. There is real fear here, and dread leaks from the pages.
