    1. Isaac is the night auditor at the God Damn Hotel in the middle of nowhere Texas. His nights are endless stretches of Netflix binges and masturbating on the roof of the hotel. Totally what I did when I worked as a night auditor. (You can tell this author really works in the hotel business-he cracked me up with these parts)Then a new employee catches Isaac's attention. Mandy 2. She might be the one to fall in love with him since the Bulimic homeless girl hasn't realized her love for him yet. He st [...]


    2. As if Isaac's soul-crushing gig as night auditor at The God Damn Hotel wasn't bad enough, now he has to contend with two methed up shoe manufacturers, a bulimic girl, and numerous corpses.I got this from DarkFuse via Netgalley.Ever wonder what crazy shit goes on at a hotel during the night shift? Wonder no longer!The Nightly Disease is the tale of Isaac, the night auditor of a hotel, and how his life spiraled out of control after one ill advised decision. It's hilarious and suspenseful and very [...]


    3. This book is for anyone who has felt that their job is a life sentence. For Isaac, it just might be.  He is the night auditor at a hotel, and the situations he gets into are not only unbelievable but humorous in the darkest of ways.  Isaac's best friend works at the neighboring hotel, part of the same chain.  They share whiskey and race luggage carts down the hotel halls for entertainment.  Isaac has other methods of coping with the stress and boredom of his job, especially on the roof of t [...]


    4. A hallucinatory and hilarious novel that functions somewhere between a crime caper and a suicide note. The story centers around Isaac, the night auditor at a crappy hotel. He hates his customers, he hates his job, and he’s suffering from (possible) delusions involving owls. But things go from bad to worse when a couple of shady counterfeiters blackmail him into helping with their criminal enterprise. What follows is a comedy of errors so violent and pitch-black it’s like a slapstick version [...]


    5. Isaac may be the worst hotel night auditor ever. In between his sleep depraved hallucinations, owl obsessions and late night rooftop jerking, he is rude to his customers, in love with a mysterious homeless girl and is totally crappy at disposing of bodies. He makes pretty good pancakes though, so there’s that. Too bad they don’t seem to last very long in the stomach.Not really a spoiler, just a meaningless rant that has basically nothing to do with the story: (view spoiler)[I read this one a [...]


    6. Issac is a "night auditor" for a chain of motels in Texas. His time there (when he's lucky), consist of masterbating on the roof, hours of Netflix, talks with his fellow auditor from across the way, George, and making pancakes for a bulimic woman that he thinks he's in love with. Unfortunately, there are times when he actually has to unclog toilets, bring towels to the guests, evade domestic disputes, and hear tales of owls that like to eat the face off of people.Quite the life.Until he gets cau [...]


    7. Max Booth III is improving with every release and THE NIGHTLY DISEASE is a major step up. What begins as the somewhat amusing chronicles of a lonely hotel night auditor take a strange turn about a third into the novel when the surreal nature of the night and his sleep deprived subconscious start to get the better of him. Think the Grand Budapest Hotel meets Lost Highway. It's funny, heartwarming, terrifying and yet it's nearly impossible to tell what is real and what is projected by protagonist' [...]


    8. The book has just enough typos to frustrate me, and some continuity and logistical weirdness that twigged me every time I spotted it, but it's very tightly written, very well-paced, and it trout-slapped me with its plot twists, which hardly ever happens--less because I'm a precognitive reader (but I am) than because so many people are predictable writers.Those said:It's about a night auditor, which is part of what attracted me to it, okay, I held that position for a few years, in the carefree da [...]


    9. I got to say that this novel is very enjoyable. It reminds me of the work published from the Dell Abyss line in the ‘90s. You know, a little horror here, a darkly humorous passage there. This original tale of a bored hotel night auditor who’s going rather cuckoo is filled with psychedelic images and unpredictable situations. Max Booth III is an author to watch. Told in the first person, his narrative is fun and as strong as that face-eating owl that keeps coming back in his story (a sort of [...]

    11. Isaac is a night auditor for the Goddamn Hotel, who, when not reading, watching porn or Netflix, or masturbating off the roof and onto the cars parked in the lot below, is dealing with surly, ignorant guests, deadbeat travelers, grifters, and the occasional corpse. After stealing a guest's lost wallet, and shocked by the disturbing owl-related attack of a co-worker, Isaac is caught up in some dark situations well and truly over his head. He also has a crush on a homeless bulimic girl.By turns fu [...]


    12. THE NIGHTLY DISEASE is another slice of Max Booth III's unique mind. I've read two of his previous works (Toxicity and Black), both equally fucked up and interesting. I must admit, THE NIGHTLY DISEASE, hits far closer to home. Being a hotel auditor, I recognize a billion hideous acts and people within these pages.We follow night auditor, Issac, as he talks us through his depressing and miserable existence. The narrative, while dark, sad, and all too true for many, is spiced up by Booth's talent [...]


    13. Wow. THE NIGHTLY DISEASE by Max Booth III is an amazing story. Who knew you could take your crummy night shift job, add in some owls and sprinkle it over a gripping crime story and get a masterpiece? Max Booth! That's who!From the opening line of the book and straight through to the final period, THE NIGHTLY DISEASE drags you into its talons and refuses to let go. So many great, quotable sentences pepper the pages of the book. The prose is wonderful. The plot is nerveracking. Isaac, the protagon [...]


    14. It is said one should write about what they know. Max Booth definitely knows something about night auditing in a hotel. Much of what is in The Nightly Disease comes from his experiences working that very job; hopefully not the actual events but from the strange and cynical atmosphere that night duty brings. Having worked a series of night shifts in a series of strange jobs in my much younger years, I can vouch that the midnight hours brings out a different and not always complimentary side of hu [...]


    15. I don't know where to start. Part of me says what the hell did I just read? Yet I have to admit I flew through this book (like an owl?) and couldn't put it down. Isaac is a young man who has led a very strange life. We are given a small glimpse into his past when as a young teen he was uprooted from his home though we are not given the why of it all. Do we need to know? I can't say the not knowing took away from my enjoyment of this humorous and horrifying story but I am certainly curious. Curre [...]


    16. ‘The Nightly Disease’ is a book Mr Booth has been working on for some time. If you follow his amusing ramblings on social media then you will be well aware that Max is a night auditor at a hotel. Servicing his guests with a smile and always being sure that they are spending the night in comfort, overwhelmed with the scent of freshly washed towels, Max decided to write a surreal book about some the exploits of Isaac – a young chap also working the graveyard shift. What follows is a tale of [...]


    17. Isaac works the graveyard shift at a hotel. As anyone who has ever worked a customer service job can tell you, it will drive you insane. Poor Isaac is no exception. Broke, sleep deprived and hating the guests who come to the hotel Isaac finds himself in one bad situation after another.Having worked the graveyard yard for a mother effing airline myself, I can only wonder how Max Booth III managed to get his hands on my journal. Every rant he rants is true. And it's true for everyone who must talk [...]


    18. Working with the public in an entry-level job can be demoralizing; whether you work in retail or fast food, the dregs of humanity and the individual’s desire to lord their power over the laborer send shivers down the spines of those who know. Some people make a career out of it and go into management, while others find a way to move into another career or end up suffering through it for a very long time. The Nightly Disease is Max Booth III’s novel of an existential crises suffered by a youn [...]


    19. I really don’t know how I feel about Max Booth III’s The Nightly Disease. Published initially as a serial in DarkFuse’s magazine, The Nightly Disease follows a hotel night auditor’s descent into madness as everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. In a series of darkly comedic and horrific events, the reader joins Isaac on a crazy ride, rife with some of the most outrageous occurrences a person could encounter.Single, living alone, and working a job where he knows he’ll go nowhere, [...]



    20. The story of Issac, a night auditor, at the Goddam Hotel somewhere in Texas, the people he meets, the troubles he endures, and the somewhat full on life he leads. The way of the author, the somewhat in your face prose, and the rather bizarre storyline is either something you will love or hate. In the beginning I enjoyed but by the midway point I felt the whole thing somewhat bizarre and wished for the party to be over. Not an author I would choose to read in the future


    21. I saw this on Netgalley first, and since I'm Social Media buddies with the author, the book's description had me searching for aGIMMIE!link before I was even finished reading it! (see the GR comment I left on the 27th, before I even got the book >.< )Excellent read, and full review will be posted soon.


    22. This book is the real deal. Well written, goes at a manic pace, layered characters, Lebowski-like hijinks.


    23. The Nightly Disease is about Isaac, a night auditor at a mid-tier hotel in the guts of Texas. Living a life best encapsulated by Trent Reznor’s “Every Day Is Exactly the Same” in 2004, a moment of selfishness, mingled with a moment of intense loneliness, soon spirals out of control in the most ridiculous, but oddly logical way.The novel takes huge chunks of Max’s actual life–motel life, his job, the chronic masturbation–and fictionalizes them, passing it all through a filter in Max [...]


    24. Have you ever worked in the service industry? Were you a waitress, a cashier, a customer service rep, a department manager, or a general punching bag for anyone holding a dollar in the face of your greedy corporate masters? Well, Isaac can empathize. He's a young night manager at a hotel. He works the late, late, late shift, auditing and dealing with the kind of people who wander in and out of hotels in Texas at four in the morning. He spends his downtime reading horror novels, watching porn, an [...]


    25. Unnerving Magazine ReviewThe Nightly Disease is nothing short of a hoot, a hoot I say… Wait.Note to self: it is wise to restrain enthusiasm in order to reserve a modicum of professionality. Isaac is a night auditor at a hotel, he’s luckless and bumbles into something too big for him to handle, well until the owls aid his growth. Full-bodied characters parade the lobby armed, sickly and demanding, the poor night auditor does what those in service for minimal wages do best, grabbing towels, pl [...]


    26. I'm a night auditor. I gravitated to The Nightly Disease because I wanted to read the bleary-eyed musings of another night auditor regarding this profession we equally esteem.But this book gave me no such thing. It became quickly apparent that the puzzling quirks of the other hotel employees was merely setting the stage for this story to ride right off the rails, much like the metaphors in this sentence just did.In fact, The Nightly Disease is not the memoirs of a night auditor but a work of biz [...]


    27. Have you ever thought of working nights as an hotel auditor? After reading this dark but humorous novel, you may have second thoughts. I know I will not consider it as a serious second career. Issac is a night auditor. He is single, has no life outside of work except for his coworkers that work nights. At work, he runs the audit and watches Netflix. He doesn't like his job but it pays the rent. He also must respond to the guests requests regardless of what they are. At times, I had difficulty re [...]


    28. Well, this was brilliant. A Nightly Disease went in a bit of a different direction than I was expecting but I enjoyed it a lot. Equal parts funny and miserable and insane, I was grinning the whole time I read it. Exaggeration blended with reality in every interaction, leading up to an absolutely mad climax and perfect ending.


    29. [I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.]This one’s a bit of an oddball: the story of Isaac, night auditor in a hotel in Texas, spending his days sleeping and his nights in the drudgery of his job full of annoying customers, endless requests and weird happenings. And ‘weirder and weirder’ is how his nights become throughout the stories, from the moment he meets his new colleague Mandy who wants to pet an owl, and gets involved with Kia the bulimic homeless girl. Follows a gallery [...]
