I really approached this book with an open mind and maybe even wanted to like it, but yeah, pretty much what everyone else said. Nothing here at all.
The ONE reason I bought this was to learn more about the fascinating people behind the Missile Silo clandestine chem lab in Kansas. She had already covered that topic in the first 5 pages of the book. The rest of the book is a stream of consciousness wandering tale of exactly how high you can possibly get on how many exotic chemicals, blah blah. If you want this type of thing go read PIHKAL instead.
Note on the 2nd edition: from what I have read the main, if not only, difference in the 2nd edition is the addition of some bizarre letters she received from one of the characters in the story. These are presented without any notes and are pretty much worthless to most readers.
Excerpt (WARNING - NSFW):
Pre-Sentence Investigation Report of Krystal Cole is filed in Tulsa District Court. Within the report, kidnapping and torture victim Brandon Green states (Report, p. 4) that after kidnapping by Skinner and Krystal Cole, he was:
injected with unknown chemicals and drugs in his penis, testicles, back, arms and legs.
hit in the groin repeatedly.
kicked in the groin until he blacked out.
forced to drink an unknown substance and was also forced to swallow some form of "parasitic eggs."
not given any food and very little fluids during his captivity.
bound with duct tape by the hands and feet and beaten repeatedly.
duct-taped across the mouth to prevent his calls for help.
tied around the testicles and/or penis with a telephone cord and suspended from a bed.
pulled with the telephone cord around his penis until cartilage "popped."
subjected to a deep cut into his penis with a knife or razor blade.
subjected to bleach being poured over his groin area.
"brutally shaved" by Krystle Cole of his scalp, eyebrows, genitalia and his entire body.
subjected to severe trauma to the rectum with an unknown instrument.
