Overview

A nightmarish vision of a very twisted food chain—you’ll never look at meat in the same way again

 

Abyrne is a decaying town, trapped by an advancing wilderness. Its people depend on meat for survival, meat supplied by the processing plant on the edge of town. Meat is sanctified and precious in Abyrne, eaten with devout solemnity by everyone. A feud smolders between the town's religious and secular powers—whoever controls the food supply controls everything, and conflict is imminent. But a handful of people suspect Abyrne is evil, rotten to its religious heart, and they are prepared to sacrifice everything for the truth. What goes on in the meat processing plant? Where does meat really come from? The townsfolk are hungry. The townsfolk must be fed.

What could have been a gross, sad mess of a book, was in fact wonderful. Dark, but so human. Scary, funny at time, and such a page turner I hated putting it down. The only thing I did not love about this book is that it had to end. Great read, can't wait to read more of his books.

I feel really stupid for not figuring out what the Chosen were when I first read about what happened to the calves. It sank in and I just couldn't believe it.  Great book, very believable. I don't like to know where my food comes from, and I'm sure a lot of people don't.

Very disturbing, but written vague and implying, not harshly. So it is insidlious when you are finally disgusted. Good book! Skip his other book Garbage Man, hard to follow and juvenile.
