Happy Halloween everybody!
I have a really creepy and suspenseful read for you on this lovely Halloween day. It’s called Meat: Uncut and it’s follows a man named Ray Garrett who is just an ordinary guy making a quick trip into the grocery store to pick up a few things. After he walks in, it doesn’t take him long to realize that something’s not right. This store is selling a lot more than milk and eggs and how they stock their shelves is horrifying.
Ray quickly finds out he can’t reach anyone in the outside world and leaving would be the last mistake he ever made. He, together with other shoppers, has to figure out how to get away from the horror keeping them prisoner inside the supermarket.
Okay, where do I start with this one…
First of all, this is a very unique story. You don’t often, (or ever) see a horror story set in a grocery store. This immediately appealed to me as did the absolute “realness” (is that a word?) of the characters. Usually, in these types of books, someone is always more brave than the others and takes the lead to fight for freedom. Not in Meat. In this story everyone is scared shitless (that’s not a word) and reacts in a way almost every human in the world would react. Many had small mental breakdowns or “checked out” altogether. Readers can and will easily relate to the characters in this story.
I found myself reading this book every chance I got because I couldn’t wait to see what happened to the cast of characters. Would they get out or would they all die? Would they turn against one another or fight for the greater cause?
Oh and did I mention the twist at the end? Totally unexpected and I wanted to smack somebody when I read it. Of course I mean that in a good way.
If you’re looking for short read that is entertaining, unique, and fun, check out Meat: Uncut by Michael Bray. For $2.99, it’s the perfect book to keep you entertained on a cool and spooky Halloween night.
