Lately, I've been struggling through Meat by Joseph D'Lacey.
It's not that it's bad. It's just so... sickening. I can't read more than a chapter or two at a time before I have to stop and take a break.
The townspeople in Abyrne eat meat from the meat processing plant. This meat is supplied by "cattle"--but not the kind of cattle you're thinking of.
For now, I'm putting this on hold. It's just too gory. I'm getting freaked out--nightmares and things. I do intend to finish it eventually... just not now.
