Smut makes a good read

Title: Pop-Splat

Author: Ian Martin

Publisher: Hubris

Reviewer: Katlego Moeng

This book is not for the squeamish, racially or culturally sensitive.

It has it all: sex, murder, rape, violence, drugs, mystery and at times it will shock and disgust you.

Funnily enough though, this is exactly what makes it easy to relate to the characters, the theme and the setting.

The writing style is very graphic and the main character's best friend, who also narrates the story, uses a lot of crude language.

The main character himself is quite vulgar.

The book is about the lifestyles of affluent white families and their attitudes towards other people and life in general.

The main character, Matt Dreyer, has issues with his riches and other wealthy people.

He constantly criticizes the world of the rich, but willingly takes all that it has to offer.

He hates his mother, his father, and his uncle, who is also his father's business partner.

His family relations are constantly on shaky ground and he resents his upbringing.

A series of events push him over the top and he goes on a murderous journey.
