Truly Twisted Tale of Evil
on 17 August 2015
Truly horrifying tale of a man who has a disturbing past, and also has a unique view on how he should look for love - by abducting and then dining with his captive, on a feast of human flesh. But this isn't a one off for Thomas, the main character who is proud of his cooking skills - he repeats the process and will keep on repeating it, determined one day to find his dream woman who presumably doesn't mind being kidnapped or fed flesh from a live human victim.
The story is short and packed with gore and horror and ends in such a way that the story will continue on in the reader's mind, because Thomas will not give up on his search for his ideal woman - and so the cannibalism will continue. I don't want to give too much away but this story has very strong horror content and is definitely not for those of a weak stomach - which I don't have, hence the reason I couldn't put this down until the last page had been read.
An horrific story, and once again a demonstration of the skill of Mr West in the way he creates a truly insane character and very capably takes the reader on a trip inside that characters mind - to do that believably takes talent, which this writer clearly has by way of the gift of taking the reader on a dark and terrible journey, and keeping them mesmerized even through the goriest and most extreme of horrific scenes.
A great short story with a great deal of horror and a trip into the mind of a lunatic cannibal. An extreme horror that definitely lives up to its claim, highly recommended.
