The Meaning Of Blood And Other Tales Of Perversity By Chuck Caruso
In a near-future Pacific Northwest, a made-to-order sex robot tests a married couple’s concept of fidelity; in the Tennessee hills of 19th-century America, an itinerant preacher forces others to prove their devotion to God – at gunpoint; and in a settlement town of the Old West, a former outlaw seeking to rescue his deceased brother’s family from a life of poverty discovers to his horror the true meaning of blood.
This book has got to be one of the most disturbing and grotesque books that I’ve read in a while.
The book features a collection of short stories that are incredibly vividly written with peculiar situations that some are believable whilst others would keep you awake at night. From the slaughtering of families and the unfortunate demise of a poor slug man, this book is most certainly not for the faint hearted.
Unsettling and dark from the very beginning, ‘The Meaning of Blood’ is bloody good reactive book that will leave the reader shaking in fear.
