Sadie works at the supermarket, hates her job, wants to kill her boss and interspersed with various recipes we embark on a darkly funny journey where we see the world through Sadie’s eyes and the eyes of her alter-ego Sadie the sadist.
Told in first person, life’s certainly a lot more interesting and gruesome when Sadie the Sadist is behind the wheel, murder, sex and eating her victims are a normal part of the day. Along with the intense clean-up operations and the buying of various goods to assist in her tasks. Such as a chain saw and freezer to aid both disposal and storage of body parts. Trips to the shops have never been this interesting I’m sure.
This is an intriguing and disturbing look at a woman’s fragile sanity as she plummets towards a complete mental breakdown amidst some graphic descriptions of sex and violence integrated into seemingly normal day to day life, except there’s nothing normal about Sadie.
If you like darkly humorous, twisted stories this could be just what you’re looking for.
