What made the experience of listening to Flesh House the most enjoyable?
the narrator was brilliant as always and made all the characters feel real
What other book might you compare Flesh House to, and why?
in terms of detective novels it follows the other Stuart McBride ones, however this one in particular is extremely gruesome and reminds me of Irene by Pierre Lemaitre.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I liked it when they were on the stake out in the car with Steel
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
what ever you do, don't eat the stew.
Any additional comments?
I wouldn't eat while listening to this and when you have finished, you might just want a cheese and tomato sandwich!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You’re about to enter a world of cannibalism, seasoned with a dash of pedophilia. Almost too much for me but that may be a cultural sensitivity. After all, the Scots eat haggis so it would take something of much greater magnitude to raise an eyebrow. And, this takes cannibalism up a gear.
Compared to the previous books in the series, this one picks up the pace a little and focuses more on the main plot than the side issues. It still suffers from undeveloped characters defined only by a few of their quirks, ad nauseam. And, the principal antagonist doesn’t come on stage until late in the book, adding a touch of a pulling-the-rabbit-out-of-the-hat conclusion.
But, the decent pace of the action makes this a more readable book than previous offerings. If, you can tolerate the gore.

Stuart MacBride is a very skilled and engaging author who makes readers genuinely care about his characters. I really like how he plays with stereotypes and cliches by turning them around in unexpected ways. Unfortunately, this story line was just too gory for me. :(
