Deeply disturbing

Every now and then I listen to a horror story and think wow that was really messed up. This is one of those stories. It isn't really scary, just bizarre and disturbing. Bizarre like David Lynch's Eraserhead, and disturbing like something out of the mind of Rob Zombie.
The first trick 'r treat scene was my favorite. Loved the lines "Her mouth was stuck in a smile. A big red painted smile that covered her face." The whole scene was fantastic and in my mind made the book.
Rick did a great job. His voice lends to the disturbing nature of the story.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Disturbing!

When I finished this book, initially I was like... what the heck did I just read, but the story stayed with me and I realised this was a very disturbing read, but oddly compelling and touching too. My heart shattered for the two kids!!

So this deals with 2 different kids, a girl whose mother passes just before she starts the journey of womenhood. Her father goes into himself and she has no one to talk to about things. She gets her first cycle and things just get weirder from there!! Then we have a boy whose mother is....crazy is the only word I can think of for her. She is deeply religious and the boy is near his time for his first communion. His father tells him to never eat the body of Christ, to never swallow the wafers. He takes that to heart after his father commits suicide by police shooting. You have to read the book to understand!!

As I said, my heart broke for those two kids. Both are deeply affected with what happens them. All I wanted to do was give them both a hug!! I'm still reeling from this, even after finishing it about a week ago. It's definitely a story that will stay with me for a long time.

Rick Gregory did a great job with this. He showed emotion and it really brought the story to life. He is clear and easy to listen to and gave each character their own tone.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts
