    1. I am almost ashamed that I laughed out loud a few times at some of the nasties in here Almost Not quite It s Edward Lee, man What do you expect Inappropriate on so many levels It wouldn t even be Edward Lee if you didn t throw up in your mouth a little Goon is no exception Trust me.

    2. I don t know exactly what to say about Goon The word like , here, seems a bit fetishist Especially since the book is as rancid as a bag of cum stained whortel sheets How does one find something utterly disgusting and repulsive, yet be, dare I say, turned on by it It wasn t gross, puke prose, or weird in that weird way you might think It surprised me The twist Surprising And funny Weirdly touching, in that creepy old uncle way You will probably hate this book because it s sick and disgusting, but [...]

    3. Read 06 13, listened to 10 16A relatively short Edward Lee novel that isn t at all short on gross Not as disgusting as The Bighead but not far from it It s everything I hope for in an Edward Lee story and the new Audible edition is excellent You ll never think about corn on the cob the same way again You ve been warned I received a free copy from audiobookboom in exchange for an honest review.

    4. I dont know anything about john pelan except that a search of his name here on just came up with a list of anthologies that he edited, I dont know if he edited this book or wrote half of it but if he wrote half I cant tell which half it is For being one of edward lee s extreme gross out type of books I am definitly impresed with anyone who can write on his level This is a fairly short novel but the size seemed perfect to tell the story, it had a bit of graphic violence but was mostly sex and gr [...]

    5. Unfortunately Goon is not the kind of book you can break down in depth, and I think that even Edward Lee would agree with me on this It s definitely Lee obscene, gross as hell and genuinely bizarre I will say that the scene with one hick cop regaling another with a series of increasingly insanely gross anecdotes actually had me burst into laughter at its conclusion it was that over the top and nauseating The thing that definitely hurt this novel the most was probably the MASSIVE ENDING SPOILERS [...]

    6. This was my first book of Edward Lee A true page turner with funny images on every alinea.A reporter and a detective are trying to get in touch with 6 feet 9 amateur wrestler Goon, who is a suspect of homicides But this isn t as easy as it seems Reporter Melinda uses her body to come closer to Goon, via other amateur wrestlers While detective Straker is accompanied by the most sexy woman he can imagine It s the only way for both to come near Goon, who is seen barely in public.This is quite a sho [...]

    7. Wieder mal ein genialer Festa Extrem Band, der nur so vor Brutalit t, Sex, Gewalt und Blut trift Die beiden Autoren wissen wie man die Leser zum zittern und mitfiebern bringt Genialer Roman den ich allen Horrorfans ans Herz legen kann Aber vorsicht Nichts f r Schwache Nerven.

    8. Goon is 148 pages of simple entertainment It tells the story of a mysterious wrestler dwelling in the bottom rung of competition He takes a beating like no other a beating that would kill other mere men.It also tells the story of a trail of women showing up dead cut up with all identifying features missing The trail of death points toward a connection with this dead end wrestling competition with its has been wrestlers and groupies This is a fast paced book that is a great short read It may not [...]

    9. It s ok Funny than sick And the reveal was not fantastic Of the limited books I ve read from Edward Lee, The Bighead and Creekers were much better If you re a pro wrestling fan it s worth it, otherwise, steer clear.

    13. I ve read and really enjoyed a lot of Mr Lee s works The Goon is not his best work, by a long shot It is really short and there are only a few really hardcore scenes and they weren t very long or very extreme Other than these rare dirty gems, it was an okay read.

    14. Edward Lee is the king of Gore Fans know exactly what they re getting into as soon as they crack open one of his books Lee takes every single rule of horror and throws it out the window, and with it goes the idea that in order to be successful you have to be politically correct Lee can and does craft novels that are shocking, and violent, but that s why Lee is so good Are his books implausible Sure, but so what Most fiction that you read is implausible anyway so who cares Lee is a legend of spla [...]

    15. Edward Lee s stories from his rural Appalachia mythos eg Creekers, Goon, The Minotauress, etc are like cotton candy Everyone knows the formula, everyone knows what to expect when they pick it up, and ultimately it s hard to recollect where one book starts and another ends The writing is solid enough to not call any attention to itself, they re each easy to read and hard to put down As far as I can tell, there s no real specific timeline to the mythos, and thus there s not any particular order to [...]

This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom Well, I was warned about this one but noooooo I had to listen to the book and judge for myself I got what I deservedOK, so I laughed, out loud, a lot This was ridiculously humorous, the descriptions of certain things was just too much who thinks of this Edward Lee, that s who Did I enjoy it to a certain point, I did think the end was completely ridiculous But as I ve sa [...]

    18. How do you review a book like this Sometimes I think Edward Lee must read a plethora of underground smut magazines, as this book is full of repugnant and sometimes hilarious sexual colloquialisms than you can shake a stick at At only around 150 pages it s a quick read I read it in one sitting Something can be said for brevity here as the disgusting descriptions of sexual congress did grate on my nerves after awhile The passage where Straker beds corpulent woman wrestler Ghoula was so repulsive [...]

    19. Extreme Horror meets Wrestling Ein, in meinen Augen, wahres Meisterwerk, das Edward Lee uns zusammen mit John Pelan hier pr sentiert und zu Recht wurde das Buch in der Festa Extrem Reihe ver ffentlich Goon geh rt neben Monstersperma und Header zu meinen Lieblingswerken von Edward Lee.Wie man es von Lees k rzeren Werken gewohnt ist, trieft die Story von Blut, Exkrementen, K rperfl ssigkeiten und nat rlich Lees schwarzem Humor.Ich habe mich beim Lesen von Goon k stlich am siert, unter anderem ber [...]

    20. As per many of his previous works, don t expect cute little bunnies or puppies unless you expect those adorable little bundles of fur to be thrown into a pillow case and repeatedly slammed against a tree This was one of my most recent Edward Lee titles and I enjoyed it much than Header In retrospect, I wish Header was not my first encounter with Ed Lee because it took me quite a while before I gave him another chance I m glad I did Bear in mind that Goon was written when WWF was still fairly po [...]

    21. This book was ok but I found it a bit too slow to get into the story I m not really a wrestling fan but despite the plot being centered around the sport and it s grouplies, you don t need to like it to read this.I just found it all a bit too unbelievable An ugly woman blackmails a cop into having sex with her in exchange for the dead girl s diary Seriously man, you cuff her and get her to the police station and get a warrant for the diary It was just too dumb for me plot wise.Not one of the best [...]

    22. I liked thisuntil the end Some of the descriptions and language were so crazy that I couldn t help but laugh It was interesting, gross, and humorous all at once Unfortunately, once it went into a supernatural place seemingly out of nowhere, it kind of ruined it for me Maybe if it had had of a supernatural vibe before the end, I would have enjoyed the ending .Joe Hempel was amazing as always He did great accents had tons of different voices in this book I think it was once of his best performanc [...]

    23. Oh boy I hate to give that kind of ratings but this was a huge letdown I found The premise and the story very very original and Lee crafts a great atmosphere of redneckness and depraved behavior The characters are rather unbelievable , which is usual for mr Lee , but fun nevertheless I laughed quite a few times Everything is great and action packed ,but after two thirds of the book , it is a steady downhill Either Lee got bored with it or was in a hurry to finish it The revealing of the mystery [...]

    24. Gore A cop and a reporter try to uncover the truth about the wrestler, Goon The reporter finds the cop can be useful, and the cop learns a few truths about himself A good story, but there was too much telling at the denouement as if the author did not feel like writing any and just decided to tell it and get it over with.

    25. If you like disgusting splatterspunk horror, black magic, dark humor and pro wrestling sleaze, then this is the book for you Otherwise, it s probably not your thing Hell, it s not even really MY thing, but co author John Pelan is great, so I gave it a read It s a lot of fun if you have the stomach for it.

    26. Wrestling is a moronic sport conceived for morons, plus I m not too fond of brief novels In short Goon is the worst and, right now, the only unsatisfactory book written by Mr Lee I ve ever read Shit happens.
