Nominated for the National Book Award, Geek Love is mesmerizing, daring, and unconventional. Award-winning novelist Katherine Dunn fascinates and amazes much the same way tornados, earthquakes, and volcanos do. No one wants to be a victim, but most find the event too hypnotic to ignore. In order to save their traveling carnival from bankruptcy, the Binewskis are creating their own brood of sideshow freaks. Under Al's careful direction, the pregnant Lil ingests radioisotopes, insecticides, and arsenic to make her babies 'special.' As the oldest daughter, albino dwarf Olympia, puts listeners in the ring side seat, her family's incredible drama erupts and spills over into the 'normal' world. Not for the squeamish or faint of heart, this brilliantly daring novel is shocking and delightful. Christina Moore's vibrant narration conspires with Katherine Dunn's evocative, energetic prose to shock us at seeing something of ourselves in these exotic characters.

An amazing book. It made me feel all the things- including disgust! But I cried at the end.. If you like things that are a little bit weird I would recommend.. If you like Chuck Palahniuk you will like this

Such a good book. Wasn’t sure I would like it at first. After the first chapter, I couldn’t put it down. The narrator was fantastic!

If you are ever looking for a grotesque little story then you are at the right place. The characters are purposefully disformed children who grow up in a freak show. Their own parents created them and own the show. It is a story full of love, hatred, jealousy, awe, imagination, and disbelieve. Just try it :)

What an incredible book! When I wasn't listening to it, I was thinking about it or talking about it. The narrator was amazing, too!
