had to DNF because the imagery made me sick to my stomach but if you like horror and have a strong stomach I'm sure you'd love it

I actually think this book was really well done. It immediately starts off placing you in the middle of the new status quo. We see a world where certain humans "heads" are bred specifically to be eaten. I thought it was really interesting that the author has the main character show case the way that society has chosen special language to distance themselves from what they are doing. I also really liked the assumption by some that the virus was made up as a way to reduce overpopulation. It added an interesting element. I really think what was super scary was that this could apply to a lot of different situations in the present world with language changed to disguise the true nature of things and a vast distrust of government.

Marcos is an interesting character... he literally is so tired of the work he does. He gets no joy from it. We soon learn that he is experiencing some intense grief which plays a major role in this. Marcos is gifted a "head" by one of the people he works with and at first he is focused on the huge burden this puts on him. Slowly his attitude changes and we see him treating her like any other human. At the same time we begin to see Marcos free himself from all the things that were upsetting him throughout the novel. I think the book really does a phenomenal job of looking at the darker side of humanity. I think it was marvelous the way the author wrote Marcos who seems to separate himself from the rest of them, because he feels differently. The end of this book legit blew my mind and I loved it. It was insane. I highly recommend this to the non squeamish bunch.

“Mary Carminum” was my favorite story in the collection.

Disturbing but clever. This book isn’t just about meat. It’s about how people come to justify dehumanizing others for various reasons - fear, a desire for comfort, individualistic entitlement.
