Not for the fainthearted. Stuart MacBride makes me laugh though he may have to take responsibility for my current aversion to meat.

Would you try another book written by Stuart MacBride or narrated by Cameron Stewart?
love all Stuarts books, have most of them in paper back but love to listen to them as well. would love to hear this unabridged and read by Steve Worsley or Stuart himself!

What disappointed you about Flesh House?
I love this series up till now, but did not notice the "Abridged" on the description. I have spent days being confused, losing track of the story, and going back to see what I missed. Finally, I started reading a Kindle version, and realized that at least half the book has been savagely hacked out. (Ironic, given the subject matter.) I tried simultaneously reading and listening, and was appalled at all the great stuff that has been hacked out of EVERY page for the sake of what - brevity? At the expense of so many of this brilliant writer's words? I don't know why the author would have given permission for this travesty.
Now I have given up the audio book completely and am reading it on Kindle instead. I will NEVER buy an abridged book again and will be asking for a refund on this one.
What makes it even worse is that the narrator, Cameron Stewart, is ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. I love how he brings the words to life with his accents and expression. It's a tour de force. What a pity that half the words are missing ...
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes, but only because so many details were deleted that I didn't know what was going on half the time. The "abridgment" makes the already very convoluted plot so ridiculously fast-moving that I felt dizzy.
What about Cameron Stewart’s performance did you like?
Everything. Man's a genius, just like the author.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment that half of it is missing.
Any additional comments?
Please print the word "Abridged" in double sized, RED letters to warn potential buyers that they are only buying half the product.

Gaggish convoluted story that's hard to get through. Might appeal to immature boys or underdeveloped men. Full of script for a gross/out contest.
