Opinion

From Library Staff

The novel so nasty I reviewed it twice! Forget the gore and the blood, read this for its characters, pace, and adrenaline. Read it. And sweat, smile, laugh, cringe, or wince. But just read it. A REQUIRED title for horror reader initiation.

I love this book, but beware it's graphic and bloody trail. Ketchum's take on the Sawney Beane story is fast-paced and sweat-inducing yet doesn't pander. His first novel and extremely tense. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed this book and it's a fast read. The story takes a while to get fully set up, but once the action starts it is hard to put down. Grisly and graphic is how I would describe the easy to read (although not particuarly great) writing style of Ketchum. I would read another book by this guy.
