Luckily, the author had something very different in mind. In that inimitable style of his, a sort of ADHD cross between Faulkner and Stephen King, Carr draws us into a timeless, worn-out world (vaguely post-apocalyptic in flavor, like his previous Edie and the Low-Hung Hands or the Dark Tower series). The protagonist, Crick, is a former magician who lost his family to a school of vicious sharks that appeared mysteriously after a torrential rain.
Crick, who has learned how to kill the eldritch flying killers, now travels from town to town on his mule-driven cart, trying to warn the inhabitants that the [expletive deleted] sharks are on their way. In one particular town he is arrested and finds himself helpless to stop the devastation that will soon rain down. Not for the faint of heart, but very rewarding to those who appreciate powerful, dark, almost biblical explorations of untrammeled, inhuman wrath.
That's Brian Allen Carr in your head, and he's come to kill you. He's gonna do it with language and it's gonna tear you apart. Man's got words with teeth and they're hungry.
[THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A BUNCH OF WORDS THAT LOOK LIKE A SHARK'S MOUTH BUT AMAZON IS A STUPID FACE]
That's a shark's mouth of words coming to eat you. (see, told you. thanks amazon) Mother(honk)ing Sharks is a book that wants to eat you. It doesn't want to sample you or taste you. Just eat you whole and (poop) you out, and you'll be thankful for it. Thanks, Brian. This (book) ate me up.
And a big thanks to Amazon for making me write this over and over. I get not wanting profanity in the review portion, I really do, but the mother(honk)ing name of the mother(honk)ing book is MOTHER(HONK)ING SHARKS. Brian and I want to have some mother(honk)ing words with y'all.
(Note: I did not want to censor the title in this review. However, Amazon refused to post the review otherwise.)
Basically, magical flying sharks emerge out of puddles and destroy everyone in their sight. My favorite part is when the author breaks the fourth wall to make the reader complicit in the brutal killing of a toddler via a great white shark.
It’s Sharknado if Sharknado were a smart, laugh-out-loud funny, gruesomely dark comedy. And it’s only 116 pages. Do it. You know you want to.
Understandably the townsfolk treat this story with a degree of skepticism, but it’s not long before it starts to rain…
Look at that cover. Look at the blood spatter. Look at the cactus and the hazy mountains, and look at those crazy flying Motherf'ing Sharks.
Savage. Bizarre. Bizarrely savage.
The cover does not disappoint and it does not lie. This story is weird, frightening, and funny all at once.
Super-Short but worthwhile.
