Publisher's Summary

Mark Murray loves his girlfriend, Rebecca Lucio, but she doesn’t love him. She believes their love has withered away, and she has already fallen for another man, but she struggles to formally end her relationship with Mark. But Mark knows everything already - the lies, the deceit, the cheating. He has a plan to punish Rebecca in the most violent, disgusting way possible. He is going to make her sick...unbelievably sick.

Jon Athan, the author of Dr. Sadist and Scattershot, reinvents the definition of "lovesick" in this disgusting, gag-inducing, and extremely violent horror novel.

Warning: This novel contains graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.

Ever Love Someone Who Hurt You?

Usually when books give me a warning about the graphic nature of a book, I think yeah right, you should read some of the stories I have read. Just like when someone tries to tell me that something is hot, really, try eating some of the things I eat. Well I will tell you that for the average person this is quite spicy and will burn you on the way in and on the way out. This was a disturbing story and gruesome to boot. I have heard plenty of gruesome and disturbing stories and this one was up right up with those. I wouldn’t say this was the most graphic story I have heard, but I did actually have to pause it midway and take a break for something a bit more light hearted. Not something I’m using as an endorsement, but merely a warning for those who can’t handle really sick and twisted stories. I you ever asked yourself, why am I listening to this awful story, this isn’t for you.

The story itself is your basic revenge story amped up on black tar, meth, and a whole bunch of STDs. A lover spurned exacts his revenge in an extremely violent and gory way. I have to hand it to the imagination of the author, the closest thing I can really compare this to is Se7en. Right off the bat, you are thrown into a dark scenario and it just gets darker from there. You get taken to some really quaint places in the neighborhood that really set the scene for the depravity you encounter. None of the story was scary, but you will want to take a shower after and maybe rinse, lather, and repeat a few times. The only thing the bothered me was the seemingly endless supply of cash that Mark had for a burger flipper.

While the main focus is really on the shock value of the scenes, you do get enough of the characters to know that neither of them are really good. Typically, with revenge stories I like there to be at least one redeeming character who you can latch onto, not so much here. I couldn’t sympathize with any of the characters and while none of them started out evil, Mark definitely gets there. While I liked his resolve and psychotic ways, the further his plan progressed the more I drifted away from him and felt sorry for Rebecca. By the time the story ended, nothing surprised me and while odd, I didn’t quite mind it. It was a mixed bag of emotions on a nauseating ride.

Matthew Berry did a good job with the narration. I liked his narrator voice and his subtle changes in tone for the characters. As I didn’t think the characters were meant to be the focal point, I’m glad there wasn’t over the top character voices. Impressed with Berry's ability to read this type of story with a steady voice. I think he told the story how it should have been and with his confident straight forward voice,

Love? Sick!

I have meet my match in horror! I could do nothing but frown and gag through most of this story. But, this is my kind of book, as long as it's fiction. This isn't the scary kind of horror, it's the horror of what one person can do to another. The writing is really good and the storyline never boring. I listened to this in one setting, it probably won't cause nightmares, but this will linger in my mind for days causing shivers throughout my entire body, inside and out!

IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH, DON'T LISTEN. IF YOU HAVE AN AVERSION TO STRONG SICK AND DEPRAVED TREATMENT TO ANOTHER PERSON, DON'T LISTEN. IF YOU'RE UNDER 18, WAIT A FEW YEAR'S BEFORE TRYING TO LISTEN.

Matthew E. Berry deserves an award for his performance with this audible.

I received this audible free at my request. This is my honest review.

Sicko Mark

Lovesick is a good name for this book...The main character Mark is a little wus who can not hang when he finds out his girlfriend Rebecca cheats on him, He then abducts her and commences to do some pretty despicable things to her. Jon Athan is an author who writes about extreme violence and gore and he is pretty good at it. This book was good but not his best at it. Check out The Good, The Bad & The Sadistic or Grandfathers House if you want some really extreme violence. The narration by Matthew E. Berry was decent. I received this audiobook for free and this is my voluntary review.

Lovesick and Disgustingly Crazy

Rebecca does not love Mark although he loves her. She cannot bring herself to end things with him. He saw her having sex with another man Nick, when he followed her after seeing her have dinner with him. He comes up with a plan to punish her. Mark is disgusting and totally insane! He has a twisted and demented mind. OMG the things he did to her. I could not believe it! This book held my attention throughout wondering what would happen next.

Twisted and Disturbing

Very, very dark and twisted. Perfect for fans of cringy horror.

It’s been a full day since I finished listening to this audiobook, and I can’t stop thinking about it. There were so many wtf moments, moments where I cringed, and moments where I was like Nooo. It also made me rethink ever eating at a fast food restaurant.

After Mark finds out that his girlfriend is cheating on him, he’s devastated. That pain quickly turns to anger and then a desire for revenge. He kidnaps her, holding her hostage where he uses different, worsening methods of torture every day. As he spirals deeper and deeper into his madness, his methods get worse.

Narration was great. Characters were vivid and stood out. Especially Mark and his depravity.

This isn’t a book I would recommend to people who can’t handle gore. If cringey horror is your style though, I highly recommend this short read.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

pretty disgusting

Who thinks up this s**t? I don't want to read or listen to anything else by this guy. I thought this was a totally different kind of story. It was, but in the most disgusting way possible.

Garbage

This is absolute garbage and not because it was sickening, although it is , which is why it appeals, but purely because it so badly written. I cannot begin to comprehend why there are so many glowing reviews for this book.

I listened to this offence to the publishing world all the way through, I do not regret listening, I shall forget listening however, the ending was ludicrous, utterly ludicrous, we are supposed to believe that Mark turns from a normal guy into a raving loony (seriously raving in that he wants to kill the world) just because one girl does not love him back? Yes, she cheats on him, and that was her stupid decision, but to punish the entire world because you can't have the girl you 'love' ... he clearly never loved her anyway, he was a waste of space and she was a stupid girl who should have known better. Just to add that psychopaths are born, not created, so this is where my problem lies, Mark was clearly not a psychopath but torturing his ex has turned him to the dark side.

Also, smashing people on the head with a hammer as many times as Mark did to Rebecca would most likely have killed her, that killed the story for me, right there, just stupid. Badly written drivel.

Matthew E. Berry does a reasonable job with the narration on this one but it does nothing to make the story more appealing.

I would recommend this book to anyone who delights in sickness and does not care about realism or good writing at all.

Disgusting & Disturbing

You really do need to take the warning at the beginning of the book seriously. This is not something for the squeamish, faint heated or the easily offended. There are descriptions of sexual torture in this book and some of the scenes are a bit hard to listen to.

I will say that in the case of the revenge dished out here, less would have been more and probably made for a better book.

For fans of the twisted and demented, this ones for you.

Sick, Disgusting, Dry, Waste of time

I made it to chapter 12 before deciding that there was no way I could finish this title. alls fair in love and writing, except for blatant rape, abuse to a level that only Charles Manson could fathom. Aside from the story being one that would turn the stomachs of any and every law enforcement professional, medical professional, and cause a priest to bless himself after a funeral, this book was also poorly written with a dry dialect. his characters were blant, and the style, monotone. as an avid lover of horror novels, I was excited to read this. however, it turned out to be a waste of my time, and that is saying something considering it's the 3rd book I've decided not to finish.

Are you lovesick?

Dear sir, you have written the first story to make me vomit in my mouth. Thank you.

This isn't for everyone. It might not even be for all the horror readers out there.

Lovesick? Sick will suffice. And brilliantly so!!

I received a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

Sick in love, sick in mind, sick in body, sick in concept! This is a revenge story that weaponises extreme sickness in its many nauseating, and mainly sexually transmitted, manifestations. Be warned, it will make you gag and probably dry-retch on more than one occasion. Too be honest, I'm not sure how Matthew Berry stomached it but I'm glad that he did - his narration and characterization is first rate and really brings the story alive. I dropped a star only because, even for me, the litany of disease became a tad overpowering at times and the story began to sound too much like a medical journal. But hey, it's a story about sickness right! Tougher stomachs might not be so squeamish. So, now that my stomach has calmed, this is a definite 5-stars overall and totally recommended. But keep a bowl nearby......

Not for the faint hearted

A journey into dark recesses. Not for the faint hearted. A story that keeps you listening for the next shocking event. Great narration who brings the characters to life.

Disturbing , sadistic and engrossing

This is the first book I have read / listened to by Jon Athan and I certainly hope that it wont be the last. I love this genre and have a love of the disturbing and squeamish. I was intrigued by the cover and I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to hear this book. It is highly disturbing and it makes you genuinely think about how far somebody could go when affected by a cheating partner. The resentment held that could make somebody lose control of their actions. just great all round listen . I was given this book by the author/narrator in return for an honest and unbiased review
