Ilm in the right hands That s basically what reading this novel was like It was just like watching a Grade B 1980s horror film And that s a okay with me Believable characters and motivations are waylaid in favor of fast moving action and ore Recommended for fans of pulpy horror In the small English village of Wakely something terrible is happening to the livestock they are rowing disproportionaly large and attacking every creature in sight Could it have something to do with the new feed provided by local creepy multinational Venderburg Chemicals And shouldn t people stop eating meat since bizarre things are happening to the animals Since this is a horror novel you can uess the answer to those uestions Before you ve reached page 10 you know all the vegetarians in town will be fighting for their lives in a matter of daysWhat starts out as a Contingent Lives: Fertility, Time, and Aging in West Africa great book to read if you wish toive up meat in the tradition of Fast Food Nation and Upton Sinclair s The Jungle soon turns into a bizarre amalgamation of right wing nausea the main protagonists complain about the latinos in New York and the immigrants in Britain over a romantic candle lit dinner with hardcore pornography would you have sex in a bloody bathroom with a hole in your shoulder and raving zombies surrounding your hotel I didn t think so Sadly I don t think Shaun Hutson means to be arch or satirical everything is written as the euivalent of a Jackie Collins bonkbuster with entrails substituting diamonds By the end you are left counting the cliches the plot holes and the body bags though I do have to say Hutson is a master of sickening ore description Really ood at the beginning packed full of mystery Also an interesting take on the vampire mythos but it mellowed out towards the end with a predictable ending Good read but probably won t read again. Rified but their terror turns to lee as they transform into beasts with a craving for human flesh.
