"The Bighead" by Edward Lee

Synopsis - (from

Who is he? What is he? An inbred homicidal pervert? A supernatural psychopath? Who or whatever he is, he's on a roll now, raging out of the Virginia backwoods and leaving in his wake a trail of blood, guts, and disgust far beyond the limits of your reckoning. Never before has a work of fiction dared to delve so deeply into the realms of perversion, sexual dementia, and bad taste.


Rating: 4 out of 5

Genre: Horror

I was not sure what I was getting myself into when I purchased this book. This is only the second book from Lee I have read. I was not sure what to really expect after reading various reviews of this book. In short, I liked it. I took 1 star away due to numerous editing errors that should have been fixed during the editing process.

The story jumps around between various characters of the story. Following the different stories can get a bit tedious, but they all tie in together nicely in the end.

I really do not wish to spew out a 'back-cover" review. So, I won't.

If you are looking for a smooth read, this is a never-read for you. It jumps around a lot from many different characters. There is also a lot of redneck-speak which, at times, can be hard to read and even decipher. If you are still intrigued, then be warned that there are almost constant rape-situations and various disturbing sexual acts that many may not be able to stomach. This book is pretty sick.

Another must mention, there is much talk about God and other religious subjects that may turn even the most open-minded believers into outraged readers. If you feel you cannot handle blasphemy of the Catholic Church, this book is a never-read.

I could hardly put this book down when I had to do real-life things. I was always thinking about it when I was not reading it and wondering what was going to happen next while I was reading it. It is not for everyone. If you like to dabble in the unknown or the sickening, try this book on for size. It may leave a disgusting taste in your mouth.

Be warned!

(This was the book I was reading when I was having my demon nightmares.)
