Whargoul, the book, has a bit of the taste of Slaughterhouse 5, that is if Kurt Vonnegut had been a soul-sucking demon that was, in the end, only trying to usher in world peace. It is more than worth the read by anyone but, if you are a raving GWAR fan this is required reading. Yet one more testament to the loss the world has suffered. R.I.P. Dave Brockie
The novel is told by an ancient being called "Wharghoul" who alongside his demon brethren is responsible for all the world's suffering. Currently the Wharghoul has taken the form of an African American in the ghettos of New York, and is causing chaos by committing acts of terrorism to incite a race riot. But something is hunting him, something worse than he is, and he won't stop until he's dead!
The novel is told in a disjointed narrative switching from the present to WWII era Russia and Gulf War Iraq with ease, making it a daunting read but a pleasurable one. Mr Brockie fills the story with social commentary on the human condition and how we must look inward to find our own evil. It is a novel on society and the societies need for introspection.
I loved this book and would read it again if I had time.
This Wharghoul is definitely cool!
You think you know the depths of depravity? Read WHARGOUL and think again. The gruesomely explicit torture scenes are outshone by an incredibly violent depiction of Stalingrad. You have to read it to believe how far Brockie can go. And it's not just killing for killing's sake: there actually is an anti-war message to this novel (as well as other sundry social commentary).
