Sharp Teeth

7 04 2016

What a pleasant surprise this was. When I started reading, I had no idea it was even about lycanthropes and normally, I’m very averse to anything in the horror genre. But the writing in this book is simply fantastic, simple but evocative, poetic but not clichéd. And even some of the more gruesome violent scenes were great too–very visceral. There were times when I would clutch onto my own gut as the narration described characters getting their insides ripped open.

Overall, I was simply really impressed at 1) the writing, but mostly 2) that something like this was actually able to get published (and by a pretty big publisher too). Just goes to show you that strong writing counts for a lot, even when experimenting with form.
