  • A very unique monster

    I am now officially, absolutely, a fan of Josh Malerman (though I still need to read Bird Box). This story is a republication, though I couldn't find a copy of the original anywhere. What if Charlotte's Web's Wilbur didn't need the help of a kindly spider friend to weave webs for him? What if he could do it himself? This story grabs a hold of you and doesn't let go. In a farming community named Chowder, not far from Goblin Michigan, there lives on Kopple farm a pig named Pearl. Pearl has been waiting and learning and now he (yes, a boy pig named Pearl) is ready to take over. At first I felt that Pearl was the embodiment of evil, but as the story goes on it is a bit sad. Pearl's perspective on events are a little different than you may think. And I am glad we are given flashbacks through Pearl's eye, on events that shaped him. Thank you to Del Rey for the invitation to request this e-ARC on Netgalley.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Not a New Release

    2.5 Stars Pearl is a telepathic pig and a murdering loving psychopath one at that. Like many others I thought this was "The Legend of a strange NEW monster." New being the operative word. What I got was a re-released title from three years ago. Also, with a psychotic pig in the mix I was thinking an Animal Farm/Cujo highbred...sadly I was wrong. I loved Bird Box and read it long before it became a movie, that alone proved to me that Malerman can write but the ending of this one, for me was just meh. It was a short read at just over two-hundred pages so at least I was able to read it in a single sitting.

    Thanks for your feedback!
