The Sadist Bible is an incredible piece of work. Cosmic. Transgressive. Suspenseful. Many deep layers, and tunnels, and escape hatches, and secret rooms; lots of places and interpretations to get lost in. The book begins with real people with deep, completely believable conflicts, planning a same-sex tryst/suicide pact that evolves into something that ends so fantastical, cosmic, apocalyptic even, that it was mind-blowing with its imagery and the places it takes both reader and characters. I read this shortly after I read her Bram Stoker nominated Mr. Suicide. The Sadist's Bible seems like the feminine twin to the masculine driven Mr. Suicide, but I felt this piece was more crisp, maybe even more accessible, as much due to its length or anything. It never once let my attention or focus slip the way Mr. Suicide did at times, nor was there an extra word to be found.
Both books deal with an attempt to escape our existence, or transcend, and a deep spiritual angst, but done so with a visceral degradation of the physical self. I loved the passages written from God. Well, maybe not God as you or I know it/him, but God in the reality of this book. Passages from the assumed Sadist's Bible will stick with you. There's an attention to detail here, and an artist who respects her work tremendously. It's the reader who benefits.
There needs to be more books written like this. The kind that beg for a reread and a book club.
