Meat by Michael Bray

Published January 4, 2014 by Shadow Girl

“Welcome to Grueber’s, the brand new all night supermarket chain with a difference. For its unfortunate customers, the ordinary looking store could be the last trip they ever make—for its shelves are stacked with horrific delicacies made from human flesh, and the store boasts a Meat aisle that has to be seen to be believed, the unlikely group of unwitting shoppers must come together to not only survive, but to try to find a way to escape from the store, and the inhuman Staff who are keen for them to stay… forever.”

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For those of you that really pay attention – you know WHY I started reading Michael Bray. (If you really don’t know, and are interested, I’ll be happy to share my reason – I’ll give you a clue somewhere in this post, and if you still don’t get it, leave me a comment! I LoveLoveLove comments!!) When I looked into his books, I knew that MEAT had to be one of the first books of his that I read. (And, I’ve already purchased the next! I’m a happy little pirate lately! Pirate sounds bad – “TREASURE HUNTER”, that’s what I mean.)

Growing up, I would spend my summers in the country with my grandparents, and the local grocery store there was a Grueber’s! The store is still there, but it has since changed into Buschs. Now I’m left wondering – was my Grueber’s a specialty market? Did it pick up and move on to serve the special clients in another area? Possibly. I’ll be sure to watch things a little more carefully from now on, because if I’m ever in need of some specialty meat – it had damned well be fresh & free range!! (I’ve never been a fan of dark meat, but – it’s nice to know I have options! Picky eaters in my family. tsk task…)
That’s what caught Garrett’s eye as he was strolling down the isle – the sign advertising today’special …

  Grueber’s Free Range human foot!
  White male left foot,
  Pre washed and ready to cook.
  Delicious, hot or cold!

He thought that was a bit odd, to say the least. This quick stop at the market had just turned into an experience, that if he made it out alive, he was sure he would never, ever forget.

I especially liked the direction that the author went with the characters. Human nature, my friends – It bites ya in the ass.

I found a cool alternate cover on Amazon, too…”
