Working at the local processing plant, Marcos is in the business of slaughtering humans--though no one calls them that anymore. His wife has left him, his father is sinking into dementia, and Marcos tries not to think too hard about how he makes a living. After all, it happened so quickly. First, it was reported that an infectious virus has made all animal meat poisonous to humans. Then governments initiated the "Transition." Now, eating human meat--"special meat"--is legal. Marcos tries to stick to numbers, consignments, processing. Then one day he's given a gift: a live specimen of the finest quality. Though he's aware that any form of personal contact is forbidden on pain of death, little by little he starts to treat her like a human being. And soon, he becomes tortured by what has been lost--and what might still be saved.… (mere)

had to DNF because the imagery made me sick to my stomach but if you like horror and have a strong stomach I'm sure you'd love it ( )

I actually think this book was really well done. It immediately starts off placing you in the middle of the new status quo. We see a world where certain humans "heads" are bred specifically to be eaten. I thought it was really interesting that the author has the main character show case the way that society has chosen special language to distance themselves from what they are doing. I also really liked the assumption by some that the virus was made up as a way to reduce overpopulation. It added an interesting element. I really think what was super scary was that this could apply to a lot of different situations in the present world with language changed to disguise the true nature of things and a vast distrust of government.

Marcos is an interesting character... he literally is so tired of the work he does. He gets no joy from it. We soon learn that he is experiencing some intense grief which plays a major role in this. Marcos is gifted a "head" by one of the people he works with and at first he is focused on the huge burden this puts on him. Slowly his attitude changes and we see him treating her like any other human. At the same time we begin to see Marcos free himself from all the things that were upsetting him throughout the novel. I think the book really does a phenomenal job of looking at the darker side of humanity. I think it was marvelous the way the author wrote Marcos who seems to separate himself from the rest of them, because he feels differently. The end of this book legit blew my mind and I loved it. It was insane. I highly recommend this to the non squeamish bunch. ( )

Disturbing but clever. This book isn’t just about meat. It’s about how people come to justify dehumanizing others for various reasons - fear, a desire for comfort, individualistic entitlement.

How far are you willing to take the phrase “playing with your food” ? ( )

Not for the faint of heart…what creeped me out more than anything is that the story wasn’t so unbelievable. The author doesn’t really hold back which made for an incredibly intense read…like something you’re disturbed by but for some reason you can’t look away. ( )
