CowsCows by Matthew Stokoe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


By far, one of the most disturbing books I have ever read. Stephen lives with his awful mother (the "Hagbeast") who continually punishes him for the injuries sustained during labor. Stephen dreams of life like he sees on TV, a wife and kids. Soon, he gets a job at a slaughterhouse and becomes involved with one of his neighbors, a young woman who is convinced we are all full of poison, and becomes convinced his dreams can become reality. Graphic, violent, and disgusting, this novel is not for the faint of heart or stomach. But it is not simply shock value, there is a story here, a sad one about sad people desperately searching for something else to make their lives seem worthwhile.
