Review - Parasite, Dorothy Cormack

Taking a look at the blurb will give you an indication of whether or not PARASITE is going to work for you. Unfortunately that style "eventuating events" and "charismatic charm" doesn't work for this reader. Combining that with the most offputting dialogue style used for Sasha's brother, meant this book was a struggle to read. The plot, as well, is very much on the icky side, which is most definitely not a bad thing, provided the characters within it make some sense, and there's a feeling of exploration or explanation, rather than just exploitation.

Year of Publication

The story unfolds as Sasha battles with a series of events that eventuate out of his need to satisfy himself and his brother's sexual desires. Both victims of their past they struggle to make the most of the world they live in and people die as a consequence. But who could blame Sasha as he uses his charismatic charm to shape his life and protect his disabled brother.
