Jul 6, 2017I legitimately love this book, and I will buy every book Mumkey Jones puts out after this.
May 4, 2017I was always a fan of love triangles and the sort, but this book is probably the best reverse harem ever written, my personal favorite characters are Milo the Slav, Syy the lolicon, and Truman the pooman
May 3, 2017This book is not for the faint of heart. So said the back of the book. I didnt take it too seriously, after reading the review by DiscountGumshoe. I felt that I knew exactly what I was getting into, because when it comes to this sort of material, I thrive in it. However for those of you considering reading this expecting the refreshing dark humor that mumkey is best at, sadly for you its very somber and lacks any comic relief, something that I am grateful for. That said, if you enjoy content for the reasons that I mentioned above then purchase it. For me it really was great. A warning that I will offer is that some parts of the book really push what he said on the back of the book. Throughout the course of the book, you really get to see what the main characters are, how they think and act, mainly dawn, but mario does have his moments.
Mar 30, 2017I went into Triflers expecting Mumkey's bizarre off the cuff chan-tard imageboard dwelling humor, his dark and twisted perspective on the topic of school shootings is one I expected and prepared for a barrage of memes, edge-lord flippancy and a largely humorous book. What I found was a twisted and fucked piece of art starring a cabal of thoroughly despicable and loathsome monsters. The inner workings of one of the most fucking disgusting vile human beings I can possible imagine are laid bare in a beautiful way. The objective of this book is not so much to get you to sympathize with a school shooter as many have described the book to me as, its more to get you to pity and understand in the case of Milo's crime. However Milo is clearly not the focus of this novel. No the real star of The Triflers is Dawn. Her mindset makes me truly sick, at a period early in the book she does one of the most vile things a human could possibly do -- it was so monstrous in fact that I stopped reading and... More > stared at the roof knowing what was coming -- The fact that somebody can write a character who is so bafflingly abyssal in her actions is what makes this novel stand out and shows that Mumkey Jones understands better than most what makes these kinds of people tick. Mumkey Jones understands that while there are monsters out there who are pushed and shoved into their acts of hate (In the case of Mario) there are those out there that are just born wrong. With Mario you can postulate that maybe his acts could be avoided. But with Dawn its made clear, she is /not/ human. Dawn is broken on a fundamental level. A literal abyss of all that can go wrong with a human being. There was no pushing her to these point. Some people do in fact want to watch the world burn and Mumkey Jones shows us this character in the way of Dawn, and he does a masterful job of pulling it off. This novel has its problems, grammar issues are present but minute. (Not typos so much as quotations that aren't closed, times where it isn't clear who is talking in a scene, bizarre paragraph breaks for seemingly no reason.) However these issues are easily ignored when compared to Mumkey's excellent characters, his fantastic pacing and of course the general atmosphere of the book which has an air of dread from page one -- The whole experience will leave you with sick feeling in your stomach that only worsens as you read on. But you just can't stop turning the page to witness the horror. Its fucking great.< Less
