Edward Lee brings us 11 stories in Carnal Surgery. All of which will wet your appetite for the strange and the horrific. Some of the stories in this book, such as the story 'Seeker', takes you the reader on the journey with 'the writer' who searches for the ultimate truth, coming across some very odd things, yet surprisingly normal for the environment he gets stuck in.
The best story out of this collection is 'Please let Me Out.' It tells of a woman, Joyce, who keeps prisoner the man she loves because he has cheated on her. It strikes at the theme of revenge in so many ways. This story proves that you need to watch your actions.
The other stories in Carnal Surgery, some extreme, others taking you into moral thinking, are profound in their settings and their characters. It made me feel as if I read something that was unique and good, something that I hated to put down once I was finished.
