Review of 'The Book Eaters' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

I don't know how to categorize this book -- literary gothic horror? It combines disparate flavors masterfully, with just the right amount of tawdry thriller thrown into the mix to make it accessible to a mass audience. It's like a master chef making an "elevated" pineapple pizza. This is one I'll be coming back to again.

Honestly spectacular, genuine and fresh. A seven-course meal of a novel that served up everything I wanted and more. I'm sated.
