But first, I had to figure out how she ruined mine.
4.5 Scream For Me Stars
WOW, starting this book I knew straight away I was stepping into a weird twisted world but I could never have guessed how twisted it would get.
So Beard runs this weird prison type place in Venezuela with his two best friends, they are hired to make people confess to things or to make them disappear. They use some very 'yucky' methods to get people to talk, some of it had me gagging.
When I released, his nipple shot across the room, hitting the cement wall and dropping to the floor.
Tyler's family was not well off and had always wanted her to be boy hence her name. She did not get affection and attention from her family so when it was time for college she worked hard and got a full scholarship to a college as far from her Kansas home as possible. The only person Tyler knows at college is her roommate, after constantly annoying her to go out to 'party' Tyler gives in. Little does she know that one night will change her life forever.
I found this a little slow at times, with there being so much in the story needing to be explained and so many side stories going on. I was weirded out and a little confused at first by the change in time between Tylers and Beards chapters. Another reason why I liked it.
The Whole Achurdy thing was a tad unrealistic and far fetched for me but I suppose opening a death/torture prison on an island in Venezuela is too. In saying that it it didn't stop me enjoying this twisted ride. I think I enjoyed it more because of how original it was and each new bit made you think. It was like a puzzle and I will admit I only managed to figure out one piece of it before the end.
I would not call this book just 'dark',it was more like a twisted and gross at times mystery read. You know how sometimes there is just one thing in a book you can't get past? Well in this one its 'The Babies'
If you're like me and like to figure out all the answers as you read, then you'll be a mess with this one. My advice just read it, take it all in as you go then enjoy the total mindfuck it gives you at the end. It will give you the answers to the hundred questions you'll have while reading it. It will leave you with one question, that question can only be answered by another book.
