This book is so vivid with the description of smells that like a good visual description, one can totally sense this book through the smell sense. It is quite horrid but riveting.

It's a clever and unique novel based on the sense of smell. It made me much more aware of the sensation after reading it. It's not particularly thought-evoking, but nonetheless an interesting and vividly described read.

Strange and disquieting. An imaginative narrative for the brave.

The writing was so clever & descriptive that I actually felt quite ill & revolted!

Violence: Though the violence is not a central aspect of the novel, there are several murders and other violence, though most are not graphically described, the indifference of how it's described makes it alarming.
