Really, what kind of sick mind would conceive the contents of this book? But thank you very much for an entertaining and enjoyable read nonetheless. I wasn't expecting it to be as disturbing as this and, taken unawares, was shocked.

Luckily, I went in completely unaware of the content and it blew my mind.

Unfortunately, people are shallow, think of nothing but themselves, graft for the sake of wielding power over others: the push, the shove, the rat race - it's completely disgusting.

This book is so much better than the 2000 movie, which although visceral and entertaining, is too highly censored. There is no way much of the book's contents could make it onto screen without losing box office money and getting banned, so they chose to omit it. Luckily it's all here in the book.
