Secrets refuse to remain buried and watch out for what character becomes your favorite because he has no problem killing them off in a wickedly brutal, savage way…A claw here, a bite there and I hope it gets that bag of shit Kenny.

There is a werewolf on the loose and he’s got murder, food and procreating on the brain!

 

If you want a fast paced, action-packed, blood-soaked read and are sick and tired of watered down monsters you should give this one a go. I think you will be very satisfied. There are a few people who accidentally get in his path but, for the most part, his victims are no big loss to society.

 

This story is more than just people eating fun though and that’s why I liked it. There’s some good characterization, realistic dialogue and interesting plot threads here too. There’s a young boy who feels a weird connection to this monster and thinks his momma is keeping secrets and there’s a teenager who has a heart of gold and risks everything to save his feckless sister. It’s good to have a couple of good guys to root for in this cruel, cruel world.

 

This reminded me slightly of a Richard Laymon story, what with the pervy men and stupid people, but it wasn’t nearly as in your face with it all and there wasn’t all the rump and boob talk that Laymon loved so much. I enjoyed it without ever wanting to murder one of the characters myself.

 

My only minor issue was the plethora of characters. There were a lot of them in this novella and sometimes I struggled trying to remember who was who but maybe that’s due to my crappy memory and the fact that I couldn’t finish it in a sitting or two.

 

At any rate, it’s a solid four star read and recommended for you beast lovers!

We Have Always Lived in the Castle
We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson,Thomas Ott,Jonathan Lethem

Wow. What a way to start off the year. This was an excellent book.

I don't want to say too much for fear of spoiling anything, but this book while not outright scary was certainly plenty unsettling. We are set down in the middle of the lives of Merricat Blackwood, her agoraphobic sister, Constance, and their ailing Uncle Julian. The three are pretty much the village pariahs and have been since the remaining members of their immediate family died due to arsenic poisoning. Since then, Merricat only makes trips into town out of necessity (and has to face the taunts and jeers of the villagers who feel that Constance got away with murder), Constance (who was charged, but acquitted of the poisonings) won't venture further than her beloved garden, and Julian (a survivor of the poisoning), now weak in body and mind obsessively makes notes about the fateful night for a book he's writing.

The delicately balanced life the three have shared for the past six years is upset by the arrival of a cousin, Charles Blackwood.

The author does a fantastic job of setting the mood, you never quite feel comfortable while reading as a general sense of unease begins to gradually amp up to the book's climax.

I won't really say more than that for fear of spoiling, and this is definitely a book best read when one knows as little about the plot as possible.
