realistic drug addict monsters that actually exist

If there is one thing that I have come to expect from Mark Matthews, it is extreme horror. But not from the likes of paranormal monsters or zombies or anything like that. It comes from the realistic drug addict monsters that actually exist. I expect nothing less than that here.

Not having any idea what milk-blood was, I was horrified as Matthews layed out the definition. Full of intense, fully conceptualized characters. A story line that gives me goosebumps every time I think about the story. There are some many different things that subtly happen that I am not going into a summary. Just know this, reality horror at its finest.

There were times that I had to stop listening and wasn't sure if I could finish. Not because of a bad story but by disgust. I didn't know if I could stomach it. Matthews takes it to level that I haven't encountered anywhere else.

If you are looking for a short listen that will make you sweat with anticipation, nauseous with disgust, uncomfortable with uneasiness and horrified with real life monsters. Look no further. If you can stomach listening to the entire book, like I did, you will wonder what is wrong with you for doing so.

Jay Wohlert did a great job bringing the madness of the secret lives of addicts to light. He was able to successfully create believable voices for the characters. Even thought there were a few times when he sounded a bit stiff and uncomfortable himself. I can only imagine what is was like to create this performance.

Speechless on the presence of horror

If you could sum up Milk-Blood in three words, what would they be?

The addiction truths.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Milk-Blood?

The outcome of Miss Lily and her end.

What about Jay Wohlert’s performance did you like?

I think this is his best! He has really bloomed as a narrator. His future is very bright he did so much better with female voices.
It waswas as though he was not reading but telling you about a person you know. It was so well done I just want give h a pat on the back!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could not stop listening.. Yes in one sitting I had to know.

Any additional comments?

Wow what a story to listen to the narrator did amazing job bringing the story to life! I sat through the full playing of the book because I needed to know what happen to Miss Lily. Well done reading. I was given this audiobook in exchange for honest review.

The book it self was good but parts were hard to take almost overwhelming the truth of what drugs do not only to people, but to families. I truely feel honor to have had this experience it makes you little grateful for what you have even when it is little.

There is very strong language this is not a story for the faint of heart or spirit it will make you uncomfortable.. Unless you are not human. I am so speechless it was very raw but well delivered by the narrator . Wow is all I can say.
