    1. When a man wakes on a river bank, half-dead with two corpses, no memories, and unpredictable telekinetic powers, people have a lot of explaining to doThe guys from Kraken Press sent me this to read at some point and it's taken me two years to finally get around to reading it.The Mind is a Razorblade is one of those tales where I had no idea what was going to happen next. When you start with an amnesiac protagonist, all bets are off. The book has a noir feel to it much of the time and the what-th [...]


    2. If you're on the fence about buying THE MIND IS A RAZORBLADE, you gotta understand the following points:1) It's a little frustrating at first, because everybody in the novel seems to connect the dot, except you. The novel is meant to challenge you to find the meaning before it explains it to you, a little bit like a LOST episode. Personally, I'm a sucker for a good literary puzzle, so I enjoyed it.2) Max Booth III has a very particular style that sits on the crossroads of horror, hardboiled, com [...]


    3. *I won a copy from the Author. This is an honest review.This is my first read from Max Booth III (author of Toxicity & Black), and it's quite a ride. What initially caught my eye was the fantastic cover design, what I found between the covers is something pretty great and very entertaining, something a little outside my comfort zone when it comes to things I chose to read. It's fresh. I'm terrible with labels, but if I wasn't I'd accuse this of being a cyber-punk sci-crime noir, art house pi [...]


    4. Booth has strapped his hero to an excellent "noir" voice here, but although noir also has its share of amnesiacs waking up with guns, corpses, and mysterious adversaries, first-person examples of the genre tend to have a more jaded, weary feel to the narrative than this romp, especially when the POV is held so close to the chest. But this is way more urgent than that. And funny. Reminded me a bit of the plight of the main dude in the film Dark City, and has a similar apocalyptic tone, but (speak [...]


    5. If you were to make a list of initially very pulpy things that have become cultural milestones, noir-fiction would be very high up on that list.And noir also has infinite potential for weird remixes and re-imaginings. The idea of a character who knows next to nothing in the beginning of a story and ends up figuring out a whole lot of things towards the end is a common theme for spec-fic. Especially more imaginative spec-fic.Look at Blade Runner.Look at Dark City.Look at The City & The City.Y [...]


    6. A bizarre, twisty, mystery that for about ninety percent of the book made no sense at all. Told in first person from a man who lost his memory we are led through the streets (of some city, I'm not really sure) where people are rioting and surgeon monsters explode into hundreds of tiny spiders. The reader is just as confused and in the dark about what is happening as the main character himself. Which makes for a very confusing read. It's a book you'll have to stick with even if it never fully exp [...]


    7. I read two Booth III books this year and truly enjoyed both. I've noticed two common traits between both of the authors books and that is his sense of humor and a strong sense of family. I don't know if the latter is just a coincidence or intended by the author but it's two things i liked about reading his books. The bonds between father and daughter or brothers or best friends are strong in his books. I just looked and one of my favorite quotes I highlighted from Razorblade. "But darkness isn't [...]


    8. The newest full length novel from Max Booth III is a beautiful blend of noir detective story, science fiction, and horror, with a fair share of comic relief tossed in to keep the reader from throwing it aside and saying "fuck this shit." It's also the exact kind of balls to the wall crazy readers of Booth's previous novel Toxicity will be expecting. As the story opens, the protagonist wakes up naked in a torrential rain, with no memory and no idea who he is, and with 2 bodies nearby one already [...]


    9. I enjoyed the hell out of this one. One of the more unique voices I have come across in a long time. Booth takes you on a trippy ride into a world I would not like to be living in. The protagonist suffers from memory loss and Booth makes you turn the pages at top speed to figure out what the hell is going on in the strange world he has created. If you want to read something different and unique in so many great ways, give The Mind is A Razor Blade a spin.


    10. I received a free ARC via NetGalleyI was initially really interested in this - super weird and kind of grossbut it just lost my interest. I can't really say why, I guess it just wasn't my kind of thing.


    11. Kudos to Max Booth. In The Mind is a Razor Blade, his second novel, he could have written a follow up to his debut novel Toxicity by doing more of what he did so well in the first book. Toxicity is a dark but raucously funny crime novel with three or four intersecting plot lines, and as its story jumps from character to character, it gets inside the heads of several people. It is told in the third person throughout. By contrast, The Mind is a Razor Blade is a first person narrative, a novel that [...]


    12. As a writer, I can tell you that beginnings are extremely important. You want to grab the reader’s attention right away. But this is not to say that you merely wish to shock them. Shock is good, but it also has to have a lure behind it that pulls the reader deeper inward. The beginning of a book can make a reader decide whether or not they’ll bother going forward or even buy the damned thing. So it is crucial for a writer to perfect the art of opening with a bang… or, with a f**k.Max Booth [...]


    13. Over the last couple years, I’ve seen Max Booth III’s name floating around the writing community and I’ve been meaning to check out one of his novels especially after reading his excellent short story Fish.I chose his second novel The Mind is a Razor Blade simply cause the cover was badass (covers are mad important) and the book was praised by the likes of Adam Cesare and Jonathan Mayberry so it had to be worth a read.A man wakes up in the pouring rain with a couple dead corpses and a hell [...]


    14. I got a copy of this from Max himself and in all honesty I can't say that I simply read his latest novel, I devoured the damn thing in two days. Hands down this is easily one of my favorite books and if you've never heard of this guy you should just stop reading for a second and just buy the book. The influences here are too many to name but if you like dark noir fiction, or ever wonder what Dark City would look like if David Lynch directed it you have a pretty good idea of what you're in for. B [...]


    15. When you start this book, you're as clueless as the main character and it's awesome. While reading from the perspective of someone with no memory, you find yourself walking arm in arm with a lost character you can't help but love because they can't hide anything from you, even if they wanted to. The stark honesty and jarring developments are what keep you reading until the end where you'll be tricked, dumbfounded and left with little else but profanity to express how you feel. Not in anger but i [...]


    16. Mind is an excellent, heady genre blender of a novel, bringing together quirky humor, science fiction, horror and pulp-noir. Some of its twisty elements and revelations, taken singly, are familiar, but Booth's pulp-to-the-marrow, fast-paced and character-relatable writing makes this surprisingly warm-toned word stew come off as a fresh, often laugh-out-loud read that's worth owning. Get this, already.(This review originally appeared on the Reading & Writing By Pub Light site.)


    17. Bizarre, strange, interesting, disturbing be prepared for all this and more! So many stories become somewhat predictable at least half way in, not this one the surprises just keep coming! This is a blast to the senses, and will keep you guessing! By all means, read it but only if you are open minded!


    18. Holy shit.Well first of all I'd like to thank Dan Schwent for making this book available to me. I'm not even going to try and explain the plot, let's just say it's a kinky mindfuck. All I can say is when that first guy spontaneously exploded into millions of spiders, I knew this book was special.


    19. This young author improves with each work, and this, his latest, kept me entertained and fascinated with the world and characters he created. Lots of twists and turns. Actually, this could be continued in a later book, maybe even a series. Very much recommend.


    20. Screaming oddity from beginning to end.A fast-paced, meat-fisted, sharp and sour thriller that flies by neighborhood without mentioning the shit piling up on lawns, the blood flowing in the streets or the reason behind a gang of machete wielding nudists. Pretty fucking great and doubly fucking strange.
