Badfish Review


Badfish caught my eye because of the synopsis. I, quite literally, told one of my friends “If this author says she can make a public masturbator into the hero of a story, I gotta read this.” I read it in basically one sitting.  Once I got into it, I didn’t really know what in the world I was reading, but I know I needed to find out how it ended, and at just over 200 pages, it was an easy book to read straight through. 5 Star Rated Review

Yes, there’s public masturbation, drug deals and other unsavory doings. While some things can a bit unsavory, there’s nothing in this book that really put me off.  Rovens entertained me pretty much from start to finish in Badfish. There’s a unique horror twist, characters that are so well-described they leap off the page, and a derelict hotel where nobody cares if someone dies, as long as they die quietly.

Overall, Badfish was an extremely entertaining read, simply because some of the things that happened, and some of the characters, were so outrageous you just have to keep reading to find out what happens next. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is a fan of offbeat horror and the like. I can’t wait to see what Rovens comes out with next. Hopefully its just as strange and vaguely disgusting as this book was.
