Slugs by Shaun HutsGrass developing a taste for new thingsfor blood for fleshhuman fles This Garth Marenghi esue novel treats the reader to a constant procession of unrelated and unlikeable characters who either meet a sticky end at the hands or proboscises of the slugs or blindly never realise how close they came to a suelchy and bloody deathSlugs makes no bones about positing women in ostensibly traditional roles They cook dinner they look after children they take showers enjoy a good natter and are hysterically passionate about housework They also get beaten by drunk husbands miscarry in car crashes turn barren get cheated on get used to cheat on others constantly obsess about their own nipples and whether or not they're wearing a bra start the day masturbating naked in front of a full length mirror and get eaten alive genitalia firstShe slid further into her denims allowing the seam to cut into her damp cleft noting how her thin shirt made her hardened nipples even prominentSeriously why is she doing this Because it's central to the plot Because it has something to do with killer slugs No It's because her husband left her to raise a slightly retarded child all by herself and since she's unable to exist without a man she's getting all hot thinking about her neighbour a nice blokepity he was marriedWhen I picked up this book I was looking forward to what the cover boasted some trashy mind shattering horror punctuated by gore and tension I suppose that was there but given all the sexism and poor style choices that surrounded it it wound up taking a back seatHowever the mistakes and tropes were so persistent and absurd that reading them became almost like an act of friendly familiarity It wasn't so much horror and suspense that kept me reading but the bizarre desire to see just what ludicrous backstory female abuse or appalling conventions the book would throw out nextRead it because it's shitNickxxThis book wins my unofficial award for bestworst simile ever Burst forth like diarhoettic excretion Lovely
