Great Reviews for HUMAN DOLL: A NOVEL

WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT MY NOVEL, HUMAN DOLL (be sure to visit the book’s Amazon page to read the complete reviews):

✮✮✮✮✮ “Sharp satire about plastic surgery addiction. … McLaughlin’s satire is not cruel. By humanizing his characters with compassionately-drawn back stories, he makes it clear that there are reasons people become addicted to plastic surgery … Camp and smart, readable in one or two sittings. It’s essentially what MYRA BRECKINRIDGE would have been if it was written as a horror novel.”

✮✮✮✮ “Author Mark McLaughlin courageously went out on a limb with this one with an unusual cast of characters seldom represented in mainstream horror fiction. This is quite different. HUMAN DOLL delves into the culture of Drag Queens and plastic surgery.”

✮✮✮✮ “Mark has decided to go the giallo route, and gave the world a novel that I can only describe as Dario Argento meets drag queens. Without giving too much away, I’ll just say, it is a fast paced thriller with an ending you won’t see coming. Well worth your time.”

✮✮✮✮✮ “Interesting characters in unique situations … Definitely the more I think about the story, the more I recognize the layers that I missed the first time that I read it. … I think it’s a fun read, overall and I am glad I decided to check it out.”
