Oct 05, Frank rated it liked it. That may sound like an insult but in this case it actually seems to be the aim of the book. This is three novellas driven purely by gross out factor and it delivers. Vile, vulgar, visionary and very descriptive. Oftentimes too descriptive. Wheeler has a gift for describing the tastes, sounds, smells and feels in the most repugnant way possible. I was warned early on reading this story that there was a good chance I would get the dry heaves at parts.
That warning was no exaggeration. The descriptions were often too much to handle in large doses. I had to read this in dribs and drabs because it was nearly too much for me to handle and I can take a lot.
See a Problem?
I would hesitate to say I would. I'm not sure I know the person whom I feel would enjoy this. This is the type of book you hand to someone as a challenge. This book is a dare. I would not recommend you read this, I double dog dare you to read this! In real life Jesse Wheeler has been obsessed with vomit since an unfortunate incident happened in Kindergarten. This masterpiece is a result of his lifetime rumination of this bodily function.
He does not discriminate on human orifices. Dinner At The Vomitropolis is a sick and disgusting read. This book will test your limits. I thought I had a high threshold but there were a few scenes that made me naus In real life Jesse Wheeler has been obsessed with vomit since an unfortunate incident happened in Kindergarten.
Literally my stomach convulsed a few times while reading. Wheeler writes in such an explicit manner that you can smell the smells and taste the vile substances. Writing about the simple act of puking is not enough for Wheeler. It provides a good introduction into the demented mind of Jesse Wheeler and a peek into what lies ahead in this book. Just remember that it is just an appetizer.
It gets worse as the meal progresses. I feel like I earned a special badge for just making it through this one. Gagging Tess Dessert — What kind of tale could possibly wrap up this psychotic meal? The dessert is not as perverse as the main course but is still gruesome in itself. The ending surprised me but I really should have seen that coming to be honest. Jesse Wheeler has talent. An easy 5 stars. Dec 15, David rated it really liked it. I picture this book being the sort of thing that John Waters would read in his spare time, and I mean in his more "Desperate Living" moods as opposed to his more palatable ones.
This is some seriously gross stuff. I'm amazed that Wheeler keeps a story going in all of this, but he does.
You need a strong stomach for this book, but don't think that means I don't respect the writing in this book. I'm just not sure that everybody can handle it. Feb 26, Melanie Catchpole rated it really liked it. If you can't handle reading about vomit, drinking or eating disgusting things like shit, I would stay well clear of this. It's pretty gross all the way through, fantastic!
I like gross.

Feb 10, Robert Beveridge rated it it was ok Shelves: ebook , finished , owned-and-still-own. Jesse Wheeler, Dinner at the Vomitropolis CreateSpace, I should start out by saying that while my particular kinks are pretty wide-ranging, there are a handful of things that make me recoil pretty much instinctively. Vomit may not be at the top of the list it depends on the day , but it's always somewhere in the top three.
- Deadly Aim (Angel Delaney Mysteries Book #1)!
- Alien Smut Peddlers from the Future;
- Faith Bible Verses: 30 Day Daily Devotional For Developing Faith Like A Mustard Seed?
- The Metal Girl.
- Bohm Book: Volume II?
- mondindianer german edition Manual.
- White Bird Returns.
So while I am in no way the target audience for this one I read it on the recommendation of a bizarro-loving friend , the only thing that saved this one from the trash Jesse Wheeler, Dinner at the Vomitropolis CreateSpace, I should start out by saying that while my particular kinks are pretty wide-ranging, there are a handful of things that make me recoil pretty much instinctively. So while I am in no way the target audience for this one I read it on the recommendation of a bizarro-loving friend , the only thing that saved this one from the trash heap for me is that the only place Wheeler turned the book into fetish material, he was satirizing.
Which is not to say that fetishism does not pervade the entire text, but Wheeler knows how to slot things into different levels where that is concerned. This is an impressive skill, even when it's done instinctively I can't say that is definitely the case here, but it feels more natural than planned, so I suspect it. The one place Dinner at the Vomitropolis DOES feel like porn is in the presentation; the three stories collected here have many of the same drawbacks one finds in cheap Kindle porn. Character development is nonexistent; the characters start out in one place and never go anywhere after that, at least not mentally or emotionally.
The plots are The stories are excessively event-driven I hesitate to say plot-driven as well, but given that lack of character development that's not surprising. The final, and biggest, flaw is that Wheeler plays with character trajectories in ways that don't make sense. I could never quite tell whether this was intentional or not, but characters who had been posited during an entire story as main characters suddenly had their storylines resolved halfway through, at which point the story would switch to another character as the main, etc.
It makes sense to try and subvert the dominant paradigms if you're creating outsider-style art, but there's a reason some of those paradigms are so heavily-ingrained. I've seen other people try to subvert the main character paradigm before. I've tried it a few times myself but I don't write fiction for a reason You know what? It never works. Hitchcock pulled a bait-and-switch in Psycho; Marion Crane was never the main character. Here, it leaves storylines feeling unfinished. Don't get me wrong, Wheeler has some of the basics down, and the parts he's focused on he's honed to a decent enough point that if his subject matter hits your particular kinks, you will at least get something out of this.
What I saw was someone with a decent amount of potential, someone who will be ready for prime time once he's widened his scope a good deal, started paying attention to the niceties of character and structure. But Dinner at the Vomitropolis we will eventually look back on, I think, as early, unformed work by a writer just beginning to find his voice.

Wheeler is a disturbed individual. What goes on the plate here is some gruesome side dishes of gross out splatterpunk. The last story I really didn't care for the topic of choice was a too much over the edge. I won't get in details but it was bah for me. If you want your next meal to taste a little better next time you consume it. Let Jesse Wheeler stir you up something tasty.
