Broken Monsters
Broken Monsters | Lauren Beukes
"Scary as hell and hypnotic. I couldn't put it down...I'd grab it if I were you." --Stephen King A criminal mastermind creates violent tableaus in abandoned Detroit warehouses in Lauren Beukes's new genre-bending novel of suspense. Detective Gabriella Versado has seen a lot of bodies. But this one is unique even by Detroit's standards: half boy, half deer, somehow fused together. As stranger and more disturbing bodies are discovered, how can the city hold on to a reality that is already tearing at its seams? If you're Detective Versado's geeky teenage daughter, Layla, you commence a dangerous flirtation with a potential predator online. If you're desperate freelance journalist Jonno, you do whatever it takes to get the exclusive on a horrific story. If you're Thomas Keen, known on the street as TK, you'll do what you can to keep your homeless family safe--and find the monster who is possessed by the dream of violently remaking the world. If Lauren Beukes's internationally bestselling The Shining Girls was a time-jumping thrill ride through the past, her Broken Monsters is a genre-redefining thriller about broken cities, broken dreams, and broken people trying to put themselves back together again.

4.8⭐️ OMG! This book is so good… crazy and F‘ed up for sure... but so good. It‘s a paranormal horror type of story that takes you on a crazy thriller of a ride. It uses magical realism and is just so worth the read.

If I hadn't loved the back end of this so much this would have been a so so because it took forever for me to really get into the story. But once things started to really get the fantastical horror vibe I was totally sucked in. I think on the surface this is just a weird murder tale but it goes into so much more depth about social media, perception, and art so it was really intriguing. But it took over half way to really get going.

The past couple days I‘ve been struggling to make myself read this but suddenly today I was finally able to get lost in it for a while. I finally have reached more of the fantasy elements so it‘s less of a slog and more of what I‘m into. I‘m curious to see how the different POV threads will weave together if that‘s even where this goes. I‘m also sad Callie didn‘t join me until after I put the book aside.

Starting my next read. I‘m a little unsure since the blurb calls it a thriller, I tend to read only genre fic and this was in the general fic section of the library, and I‘m not sure I can do serious business fiction right now. However the group I‘m reading this for shelved it as fantasy so I‘m willing to take the risk.

Enchanted_Bibliophile It's more Horror Fantasy than General Fiction. Think Stephen King, Joe Hill ... 2y

Somebody get HBO to make this into the next sci-fi psychological thriller hit series! It was dark and moody and then it took.a.turn. I loved the whole creepy concept.

Reggie There are a lot of different things going on in here. I cried when the MC dropped her daughter off somewhere near the end and the passage makes you think it‘s the last time she‘ll see her. And then I was horrified when the birds came out of that girl‘s chest. Yikes!! This book was sooo good. 2y
Jilly6183 @Reggie Yes! And I was really hooked (if I wasn‘t already) when the flowers bloomed in the pottery shop. That was the first real evidence that something truly supernatural was going on and it wasn‘t just in Clayton‘s mind. 2y

Written by a young South African this story is set in Detroit. She falls into cliches about our great city, but some visuals are correct.

There‘s a serial killer loose in the city. Bodies are found with a macabre twist: humans and extras grafted together to create “art”. The end falls into the supernatural. Not for the faint of heart

As an aside, keep the people of Detroit in your prayers.

Finished this morning. I enjoyed the first half or 3/4 and then the supernatural element just made me feel like I was really missing something. I generally enjoy supernatural twists and inexplicable events but in this particular book, it made it hard to get through the climax and muddied the otherwise compelling stories (IMO).

This novel starts out as a pretty standard thriller about a seriously demented serial killer. Then it takes a turn into the extremely weird and disturbing. And while the sudden supernatural elements threw me for a minute, they ultimately paid off.

Wow this was a wild ride! It started out as a “So-So” and ended as a PICK 👍 hadn‘t read a single review, so was completely taken off guard by the thrilling ending.

Is there a genre for contemporary horror? .. because this is it! I didn‘t “love” any character but thought the writing was great. POV chapters told by the cop, her daughter, the hipster journalist, a homeless man and the killer weave a gripping story I really enjoyed!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Reggie I thought this was a horror Valentine to Detroit. And I write this on a lot of reviews but oof!!! When the birds come out of the girl‘s chest!!!😱 4y

Mystery thriller set in Detroit about a serial killer who creates art pieces and installations with the victims. Multiple points of view I including the killer, good pacing and diverse characters. Downside was a supernatural element brought in, seemed unnecessary and took away from the novel IMO.

Detective Versado is a seasoned homicide detective who has seen it all. Or so she thinks. Until one day when she stumbles upon a murder victim. The dead boy has a normal upper body, but his bottom half is that of a deer.

Reggie @cinfhen the author kinda throws everything but the kitchen sink in here but I think you‘d like it. It‘s like a creepy valentine to Detroit.

Kept trying to read this in bits and pieces during a week of work, but it wasn‘t really going well . Gritty Detroit police procedural, check, mother -daughter angst, check, serial killer check, boho PoMo check, all in bits. Finished work and started all over again and couldn‘t put it down. Supernatural thriller, shades of Charlie Parker! This, and Only Lovers Left Alive is my Detroit. Nicely done.

I‘ve finished my first #screamathon book! It took me almost a week to read. I had such a hard time with the first half. I felt it was tedious, and I had to force myself to read on. But the second half? Wow! I read the second half in two sittings, having fallen asleep reading. It was riveting. Creative, original, and suspenseful-couldn‘t put it down for anything. Would I recommend it- absolutely. But a slow starter for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

A good book, in my opinion, but not the stand out I was expecting from other reviews. Interesting but I didn't feel much tension as much of the foreshadowing actually revealed plot points much to easily. Though it was a short book it still felt as if the story wandered about needlessly.

Lauren Beukes really knows how to write a serial killer. This book was extremely compelling and smartly written. She incorporated modern technology and social media in this book in a way that really added to the story. I liked The Shining Girls better because it was just so unique, but this was also very good.

(audio) I was actually a bit disappointed with this one. I loved Shining Girls & had heard over & over again that this was one of the most terrifying books ever, but I really didn't think so. The characters were amazing, her writing was (as always) excellent, & I thought the world & fantasy elements were wonderful. That's obviously not bad, & this is a good book, but I had my hopes very very high & it wasn't quite there. Still recommend though!

I just finished this book and I don‘t know how I feel about it or what the hell I just read.
I‘ve never read a book where the reader knows who the killer is up front and you get his POV. I liked it but this wasn‘t your typical who dun it thriller.

The story kept me hooked but it got a little to paranormal/sci-fi at the end. The ending left me scratching my head and with a lot of questions with no answers.
