It's also brilliantly-written, expertly crafted and incredibly compelling. It is uncompromising in its brutality, both in terms of its graphic and emotional content. And it is perfectly staged and phenomenally well executed. Don't be fooled by the opening chapter. Keep reading and you'll soon find yourself absorbed in the harrowing 'could almost be true' tale as it builds to its horrific central set-piece, stomach-churning climax and bitter, heart-breaking conclusion. Make no mistake, this is far more than mere sex and gore. This is intelligent, thoughtful stuff that also refuses to back away from what other authors might consider too extreme for print.
It's a hell of a mind that can come up with a story like this and one hell of a writer who can set it down so well.
Fair warning - there are plenty of readers who don't have the stomach for something like this. Those that do - prepare to be amazed.
I enjoyed this - if enjoyed can ever be the right word for something like this. At any rate I kept reading and finished it off on a two hour flight with plenty of time to spare.
It's actually fairly short, and the whole thing is really only a single scene, barring the ending (well, OK, it alternates points of view, and at the start they are in different places). That's not a criticism, simply an observation. Because it is written like this, there is a bit of a lack of characterisation. Not that it's missing completely, but it reads more like a short story than a novel.
My main beef is with the ending. I won't give it away, but I found it implausible, and pretty much only included for some kind of shock value "twist" as far as I could tell. Everything else that happens follows on as a natural consequence of the initial position the characters are put in, but the ending sticks out like a sort thumb.
Anyway, it's certainly worth a read, though perhaps not if you don't want any explicit violence or sexual violence/abuse. Then you should stay away. Given the subject matter though, I think the author does a creditable job of dealing with it.
Good horror, good books make you NEED to finish the story ASAP and this one does that for sure. Jonathan Butcher is a ludicrously talented writer and I promise you will be seeing big things from him.
Jonathan Butcher writes with such articulate brilliance. He presents a story that whilst the subject matter is incredibly difficult to deal with, is written with such care and attention, it inspires and engages you from start to finish.
An amazing book.
Not normally a fan of horror but I thought I would give this a go.
I actually read it all in one sitting (well, I made coffee halfway through) and it's not often I do that.
The story is quite believable and the characters feel real. It's an easy read, although I wouldn't recommend it if you can't stomach extreme violence. I do recommend it for horror and thriller fans who like a bit of graphic nastiness.
