30 review for Cravings : An Extreme Horror Novelette

  1. 4 out of 5

    For an author who is admittedly not completely comfortable writing extreme horror, D E McCluskey does a bang-up job with this nauseatingly repulsive novelette. I mean this as a compliment. As someone who reads a lot of extreme horror, this story left me satisfied, if not a bit queasy. I just need to avoid bathrooms for a while...

    OMG !!!😰 It’s the most disgusting novelette I ever read. And I hope, I’ll never read something like that,ever! 😵‍💫🤢🤮 This book, is my limit. There’s too much 💩. But, I managed to laugh, despite my disgust, when I read about the encounter with the homeless lady. Thankfully, I never had that kind of craving!!🤣 This short story is, very well written, and for me, it was very nauseating and totally unexpected. I will not recommend this book. Read it if you wish; you’re free to read what you want.😄

    Welp. This one definitely took the cake for most disgusting 🤢 Get yer barf bag. It’s a doozy. A bit linear and wish it had other gore or torture or horror, but the short story kicks off quick with a bang. Some of the most grossest descriptions of the subject matter are written hahaha Thanks to MadameD for the suggestion! Oh I’m trying to figure out what actually is on the cover image…

    And people thought my cravings of cucumbers dipped in chocolate was weird and bizarre. This one was pretty disgusting. I had to stop reading it at one point because I’m at the fair, it was raining, and was sitting across from the horse barn, which enhanced this book a little to much 🤮

    I zoomed through this book thinking that it couldn't get any worse. But *sh*t* it sure did. A disgusting, smelly trip to see just how bad ones cravings can be. It was really intense. Please do not be eating anything while reading this. It's not for a weak stomach. I zoomed through this book thinking that it couldn't get any worse. But *sh*t* it sure did.

    Holy shit. I'm not even sure which way is up after reading this one and/or how to work up a review for it--my stomach hasn't settled down. With the type of detail you can feel coating your tongue, the achievement here is that with mere words placed upon just about 50 pages, Mr. McClusky's novelette is able to cause a physical reaction that is not only unforgettable, but somehow manages to keep you reading even as you fight the urge to throw up and throw the book against the wall. Go into this on Holy shit. I'm not even sure which way is up after reading this one and/or how to work up a review for it--my stomach hasn't settled down.

Go into this one cold, as any detailed synopsis will certainly spoil and soil the experience. This one deserves five stars based on the fact that similarly extreme horror doesn't leave you with such a literary and almost literal aftertaste.

    Oh my god I don’t know where to start. Pretty much just vomit. I am speechless after reading this. I didn’t know what the cravings were for when I started and now I wish I still didn’t know. People say this a lot with horror but this is not for the feint hearted.

    This was a fun story and I very much enjoyed it. Some hilarious moments full of splatter. I pissed myself laughing at the scene with the homeless woman. This book made me crave chocolate cake drenched in extra thick chocolate sauce. Yummy!

    wow. I need a shower. That is all I can say. I am proud to announce that I did not gag once. However, this book made me not want to eat again. Ever.

    Wow. Not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn’t this. Absolutely revolting. I even considered just…not reading it anymore. But I did. Makes me never wanna get pregnant. With that being said, I enjoyed it lol. If a story can give you a physical response, it’s gotta be good, right???

    NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED! This is a nauseating, grotesque, audibly gag kind of a story… And that’s what makes it great! I'm not normally into this kind of a story. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love a good horror story but this level of gag worthiness just destroys my brain. I’m not going to give anything away, I want you to use your imaginations to think of what’s the worst thing this story could be about...double it...multiply by 100 and then you might just reach the level of disgusting tha NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!

I’m not going to give anything away, I want you to use your imaginations to think of what’s the worst thing this story could be about...double it...multiply by 100 and then you might just reach the level of disgusting that D E McCluskey has squeezed into this novelette. I have been a fan of McCluskey since I first started this geek journey. Before I had my website, his graphic novel ‘Doppelganger’ was one of my first reviews that I wrote. From that reading I discovered that the author has a particular skill set with his writing, he has the power to make you recoil in disgust, tremble with fear and then in the very next line, hysterically laugh. This is just how good he is. Cravings once again is masterfully executed and McCluskey has successfully managed to make me audibly gag, turn away from the book and take a break through the sheer excellence in his descriptive writing of the oh so very gory details. I’m really not exaggerating with my comments, I was in contact with the author throughout and I think I may have brought a smile to his face as he kept laughing and laughing when I was messaging! The cover does the perfect amount to draw you in and give you a basic idea of what the story could be about. All I can say is prepare yourself. I wasn’t ready for this, and I'm not sure you will be either. If you love horror, give it a go! If you love extreme horror, this is a must read. “The burger had been delicious, but it didn’t satisfy the empty feeling inside her. She needed something else, she just didn’t know what.”

    There’s very few horrors that make me feel nauseous nowadays. I grew up on it, it’s my favourite genre, but this? I feel very unwell.

    Well shit... If my coworkers would have looked over and saw the look on my face while reading this I'm sure they would have bust out laughing. It was definitely extreme, but also fun and thoroughly disgusting story. Well shit...

    Wow. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't what this book gave me. Is it as disgusting as everyone else is saying? Oh yes. Kind of surprising, as the author admits to not writing a ton of extreme horror. In my opinion, DE McCluskey should definitely write more gross-out horror! This was such a quick and fantastic little read. In a span of 40-something pages, McCluskey not only writes an incredible story, but one with relatable, realistic characters, despite the absurdity of the plotli Wow.

This was such a quick and fantastic little read. In a span of 40-something pages, McCluskey not only writes an incredible story, but one with relatable, realistic characters, despite the absurdity of the plotline. I know I talk about characters a lot in my reviews - but they're the most important part of the story for me. An author can have the best, scariest ideas in the world, but with flat and boring characters, the story is ruined. From the nurse that has one scene in the beginning of the book to the married couple that this story focuses on, these characters are brought to life with rich dialogue and inner thoughts. Guys, this book is for free on Kindle Unlimited. Check it out and support underrated indie horror authors!

In this bit of propaganda, Sarah Todd's unborn child craves that which is taboo, and as she comes face to face with the reality we all deny, and she forces us to face our own cravings. Not only that, but she shows us the dangers of what can happen if we deny our natural urges for too long. I highly recommend this book. EVERYONE should read it. It is not an easy read, and there are parts that might turn your stomach, but there is a lesson to be learned, and it is well worth the price of admission (99 cents).

    Ok I found out I have triggers! I should have suspected with a similar obscene scene in Cows, but here it takes centre stage and it gradually gets worse. I had to force myself to keep reading, so that I could recommend it, in good conscience, to friends! The plot is very simple: it's about a pregnant woman who has cravings. No, it's not a craving for flesh - though you'll wish it were! The descriptions are so vivid, the situations so graphic, it's a miracle if the reader finishes it without gagg Ok I found out I have triggers!

This extreme horror novelette attacks the senses and keeps at it till the reader either quits or ends up amazed and speechless - as did I. Highly recommended!

    Warning! Do not read before dinner! I didn’t know what to expect as I delved into this short read. Unfortunately it gripped me from the start. If the author’s goal was to shock, he’s scored a hat trick. I’ll never look at a pregnant woman again without flashbacks to this story. Thank you D.E MCluskey, for the most nauseating read of my life.

    Stomach churning fun! Any woman who has experienced pregnancy cravings can empathize. Sometimes you don't even need to eat the food, it's the smell that sends you running to the bathroom. My craving was a ham and cheese omelette. It's been over twenty years and while I can eat those things separately, the combo still makes my stomach clench lol What do you do when your craving is a little more strange? When it's harder to procure? Definitely needed to clench my teeth at some points. Can't wait t Stomach churning fun! Any woman who has experienced pregnancy cravings can empathize.

    I honestly don’t even know how to rate this book. I am so immensely grossed out that I am struggling here. That was truly the most I have gagged reading a book to date. So, so, so gross. 🤮🤮🤮🤮 Brilliantly written. Great characters. Shitty theme.
