Publisher's Summary

Warning: This is an extreme horror novel. There is gore. There is bad language. There are scenes of a sexual nature. But hidden underneath it all is also a chilling story. Please do not purchase this audiobook if you are easily shocked, disgusted or offended. This book is not for you.
A family will do anything to survive after a nuclear attack has left their world in ruins. Actions which even surprise them...

Sick bastards

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sick Bastards?

The writing is superb,plot intense and of course sickening...in a good way...The book is sort of a "day after" zombie story.once you start reading you cant put it down even if you dont like what yout are listening you have find out the rest of the story..

A twisted dystopian? Or something more?

I’m a sucker for anything with a warning label. And this book definitely deserves one!

Four people wake up with no memory of anything other than the ‘bomb’ that went off. The food doesn't last, so they do what they have to in order to survive another day. Surprisingly enough all the sex and gore doesn't feel gratuitous. It really lends itself to the story. Now there were times I’m sure I blushed while listening, and was glad I was listening through ear buds so nobody else could hear. Sick Bastards also takes an unexpected twist at the end that I sure didn't see coming, and that was even more terrifying than what they had experienced in their cabin.

This was my first Matt Shaw book and I have already added all the others I could find to my wish list. Chris Barnes does an excellent job with the narration as always. I just adore his accent; he is so easy to listen to and really adds depth and feeling to the story.

Audiobook provided for honest review.

Not for the faint hearted.

Would you consider the audio edition of Sick Bastards to be better than the print version?

I loved both the print version and audio version of sick bastards. The audio really brings the story to life and makes you part of it excellent narration by Chris Barnes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sick Bastards?

There are alot of eye opening scenes in this audio. My favorite is when the family first sit down to eat the meat.

Which character – as performed by Chris Barnes – was your favourite?

I liked all the charachters but my favourite is brother. The things he gets up to when at home and exploring outside really open your eyes. Chris makes him a really strong and believe able charachter.

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

Yes I would have loved to listern to this audio in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

A must for all audio horror lovers.

confused

Apart from the narrator jumping from cockney to northern during the narrative and the fact that the chapters jump back and forth confusing everything, this wouldn't of been that bad. unfortunately it got painfully to finish and it jumped around to a sloppy and formulated finish ,
