    " That was scary and sexy! "

    " By turns quite erotic and violent, this is a pretty entertaining story of a woman who searches out men seduces them (or allows herself to be seduced by them), and then murders them during sex. Both the sex and murders are pretty explicit, and the whole thing is pretty lively. Perhaps the psychological explanation for her behavior, the backstory, is laid on a bit heavy, but it still works. At midpoint, the book felt a little repetitive, but Block pulled it off and ran some switches in the story. It reminded me a bit of the old novel The Eye of the Beholder, which was more inventive in both the storytelling and plot. Don't read it if you have a weak stomach. "

    " It is exactly what it claims to be. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Jack Haringa | 1/22/2014

    " This may not be the worst novel I've ever finished, but it's certainly the worst of the last three years. There's absolutely no narrative tension, and the putative protagonist just moves from incident to incident with only the barest of variations. She meets a man, sleeps with him, kills him--and that's pretty much the extent of the plot for about 300 pages. She's not particularly sympathetic, or interesting, or deep, and she doesn't grow or change over the course of the tedious narrative. The novel fails to be either sexy or exciting, despite its subtitle. Nothing more than a dull and cynical waste of time, Getting Off never even gets going. "
