Sick Bastards by Matt Shaw

What would you do if there was a mysterious explosion and the fallout seemed to be causing people to revert to a more primitive self? Would you lock yourself away in your home with your 'family'? What would you do if there was no power anymore and the last of the canned goods had been consumed? What would you eat then?

What would be your source of 'meat'? And would you dare cook it, knowing that the smoke and smell could attract unwanted visitors?

Without contact with anyone outside of your immediate family, what would you do for sexual satisfaction? Are you now also being affected by this strange chemical bomb? Will you eventually become one of these strange creatures that roams the land, devouring anything that moves? Who are you? And who were you before, when things were 'normal'?

Matt Shaw shocks the reader on page one, drawing one into this new and bizarre world that is ruthless and primitive. I often judge a book not by its cover, nor by the author's impressive vocabulary, but by their ability to hold my attention. If I cannot put a book down until I am finished, then, in my opinion, the writer has done a superb job. Sick Bastards is such a book.

As of the writing of this review, you can buy a copy on Amazon Kindle Store for 99 cents, or read for free with Kindle Unlimited.

Thanks, E.G. Its kind of horror/erotica with a slight dystopian sci fi element. Maybe not your thing, but I could not put it down.

Hi 4-Lan,  Sounds intense.  I can't handle horror (let along 'extreme') but I know folks who love it.  Reposted to my blog.
