From the review: (…) this is written by a Bram Stoker award-winning author that really knows how to write! Manzetti is a true artist that can speak of the most vilest of acts and yet, there is a lyrical quality that makes it all sound so beautiful. His way with language keeps the words flowing and the pacing spot-on (…) The quality of writing and the ability to make sense of the depravity which occurs in keeping within the context of the story has me giving this book a 5-star rating. (…)

"If, as Umberto Eco said, 'Reading is immortality backwards,' then reading Alessandro Manzetti's SHANTI --THE SADIST HEAVEN is seeing mortality into a future coming apart at seams and stitches as civilization metastasizes before your eyes. The hyperreality of Manzetti's nitty-gritty prose gives a kaleidoscopic fly's-eye view of the Hell that is South Paris 5 and his poetic metaphors burrow into your psyche to lay mind-blowing oospores. This is an epic of stunning imagination, a veritable pleasure palace of perversion where humanity and cancer are indistinguishable."
--RANDY CHANDLER, author of Bad Juju, HELLz BELLz, Duet for the Devil, and co-editor of Year’s Best Hardcore Horror
