Mini-review: I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison




A post-apocalyptic story about the last 5 survivors of the human race living inside a computer that tortures them.


He was Earth, and we were the fruit of that Earth; and though he had eaten us, he would never digest us.

Creepy and really, really grossly descriptive. I had bigged this one up in my head for a long time and it didn’t really live up to my expectations, but I still enjoyed it and I still think this has one of the best book titles ever.

Some people love the writing, some people hate it. I, personally, enjoyed the disjointed style it was written in. I think it helped in creating the messed up atmosphere of the story.

I’m noting the misogyny in this is garnering it several negative reviews, but isn’t that just part of making the story even more disgusting than it already is?

Overall, very disturbing and bizarre.
