It has the page-turning quality that I love and leaves an excellent opening for the continuation of the story... can't wait to read the next installment!
The way it is written makes it believable which, I think, adds to its scary-factor!
Ernie now as to do exactly as he is told, when he is told as the Vampires know about Marie, and use threats to her life as a way of manipulating him, and keeping him under control.
Ian McCain has created a universe where vampires are more realistic, they hurt, they care and yes, they can be monsters.
I noticed very few errors in the book, nothing that pulled you away from the story. I am looking forward to book 2.

The author alternates between old Romania and the beginning of vampires, and modern days. While hoping to avoid spoilers, I can say that both will converge at some point. Else what would be the point? Over all it was well done, the characters were believable, and I came to like Ernie. He has a conscience.
The story is told in the third POV present tense and that's where it lost a few points for me. I can live with it. I've read and loved books written in present when they make me forget the tense, and Product succeeded in doing so most of the time. Yet there were those moments when I really wished it were past tense. This is just me being picky. It is only a personal preference and has nothing to do with the story itself.
Being both a lover of SciFi and Horror genres, while also having a background in science and technology, I have always found myself being caught between a desire to immerse myself in a story, while at the same time not thinking to myself "that could never happen!". The result is more than a couple books that I never manage to finish due to my not being able to stop mentally debunking aspects of the story. I am happy to say that Product held my attention throughout the entire book and also has me anticipating what will hopefully be a series. McCain's writing style is rich and descriptive, with a slightly different approach for a novel of writing in the present tense. While the present tense style caught me a bit off guard at first, it felt a bit script-like in the delivery and seems to actually help the reader (at least in my case) visualize the situations.
Overall I really enjoyed it, there weren't any parts that I thought were unneeded or tainted with filler, everything flowed quite nicely and the thrown in twists and turns definitely kept it entertaining all the way to the end for me. I highly recommend it
Ian McCain has written an ingenious new take on a popular tale. No ordinary vampire story to be sure - "Product" is gritty, original, suspenseful and...yes...violent. Yet, the violence certainly works and is definitely necessary. McCain's ability to write descriptive, gripping and graphic scenes is unfailing and highly commendable. I could see "Product" easily being turned into a movie.
If you think vampire books are all the same, think again. Ian McCain has come up with a decidedly new and innovative approach to the subject with his book, "Product". I would highly recommend it to readers searching for an exciting, fast-paced thriller that's sure to leave them satisfied and asking for more. I can't wait for the sequel!
