That's the dilemma our shoppers face. They are in a new supermarket that sells human limbs and other products. They're pretty sure the supply is coming from fellow shoppers. Their mobile phones don't seem to work inside the building. There are no windows, there are no emergency exits. Like any group of victims, is there more to fear from your fellow man amongst the group of victims than those who you know want to kill and eat you?
Meat is a lot of fun. I could easily see it being made into a movie, although maybe it would be more plausible as a rural truck stop supermarket or something as to why all these people suddenly decide to shop there. But a great read, I'll definitely check out other books by the author in the future.
Our main character Ray and supporting characters are trapped inside a supermarket/grocery store. Something is seriously wrong when there are severed limbs, brains, and eyeballs on the shelves mixed with normal food items. There's a huge bodyguard in the front of the store, blocking their only exit. The manager and the butcher have plans for their prisoners and it's going to get bloody,
What really makes this story is the characters. Each is unique and fleshed out. Their fear felt real. It wasn't your normal 'scream, run away, and come back stronger than ever.' Some of these characters were mentally scarred for life by what they saw. And as their time dwindles, customers begin to form groups and turn on each other. I wasn't expecting a power struggle-type story, but it worked well.
The ending was shocking and unexpected, in a good way. From start to finish, we were given a unique story full of twist and turns and edge-of-your-seat terror. The horror genre needs more writers like Michael Bray.
I picked this book up thinking that it would be a nice read. I have found that most horror books don't really scare me or bother me at all. This book scared me bad, taking something as ordinary as a food store and making me never want to step foot into one ever again. Michael Bray has a gift for story telling, putting you inside the heads of a few different people and making you care about what is going to happen to them. Making you hope that they make it out of this alive. When you care about the characters in a book it makes it all the better.
More then once I asked myself how I would have reacted if placed into a situation like that, and honestly I couldn't tell you. Half the time I would think that I would hold strong and try to escape, and the other half I would think that I would lose it and roam the isles with the rest of them. When a story makes you think like that you know it was good.
The only thing I didn't like is that it reminded me a little of the movie The Mist, I have never read Stephen Kings book so I can't compare it to that, but the feeling of the movie was close to this story, only with different monsters. Other then that this book creeped me out hard core.
Would I recommend it? Oh yeah I would, you never really want to watch a scary movie by yourself, same goes with a book. You need to spread that fear out to others so you can cope. Now if only I could convince myself that my local food stores are save to go into.
Nicu and his people were terrifying and I don't think I will ever be able to walk through a supermarket at night again without looking over my shoulder. I really loved the ending too. I have to admit it caught me by surprise and I would definitely like to know if Garrett made it to freedom. Good one Michael Bray!
I have to say that I loved this story. Desperation and a look into what the human mind is capable of when faced with horrific situations. The ending was also totally unexpected
THIS IS A GREAT STORY!
