They call it the plague A generation of children born with extreme genetic mutations They call it a home But it's a place of neglect and forced labour They call him Dog But Enoch is just a boy who wants to be treated as normal They call them freaks They might be right 'An amazing tour-de-force . . . One of Us rattled me to the core. An engrossing, emotionally-charged book and a work of terrible beauty. I loved it, heart and soul' John Dixon, award-winning author of Phoenix Island 'Without a doubt one of the best books I'll read this year . . . [it] has The Island of Dr Moreau's social conscience, the X-men's imagination and Harper Lee's heart. But it is DiLouie's skill as a storyteller that blends all of that into a compelling work of near perfection' Bracken MacLeod, award-nominated author of Stranded

Five books published by Orbit that are high on my SFF TBR. Orbit is second only to Tor in terms of quality & quantity of SFF publications.

A gut-wrenching read with all too believable insight into man‘s basic inhumanity.

This was muppet babies, as if they were mutants of the X-men universe, caught up in a slavery allegory written by the writers of The Walking Dead. Rough.

Libby1 That is an amazing review. Stacked! 5mo
Centique God I loved the muppet babies. 😂 I probably can‘t read books about muppet babies in peril though 💔💔 5mo
Reggie @Libby1 Thank you! @Centique Right!!! They were soooo cute. I loved Baby Gonzo. He just loved Piggy so much. 5mo

Reagan-reads Another great review! Stacked! 5mo
Lindy The muppet babies at the start of your review brought the movie Happytime Murders to mind and then I couldn‘t get the comedy aspect to leave while I read the rest of the review, even though the book sounds grim. It‘s weird when that happens. 5mo
Itchyfeetreader Muppet babies - I loved that show! Awesome review 5mo
rohit-sawant Well, obviously stacking 😄 Great review! 5mo

Reggie @Reagan-reads @Itchyfeetreader @rohit-sawant @taraWritesSci @Addison_Reads @Rissreads @LaraReads Thanks!! I honestly thought the writing could have used a bit of subtlety but before I knew it I was sucked in. 4mo

Soooo many good choices. ONWARD AND UPWARD!

Guildedearlobe I have about 3 hours left in Kill the Farm Boy. It‘s light and fun and perfect after reading some darker novels. Plus Luke Daniels is excellent as usual. Meddling Kids is great fun too. The Cabin at the End of the World will easily be in my top 10 this year. I‘ll be interested in what you think of One of Us. It‘s in my maybe pile. Have mixed results with his books in the past. Great choices. 13mo

This was a super fast read - read it in two sittings. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Not for the squeamish or easily offended. There is graphic content and very unsavoury characters, but the character building and world building is simply fantastic.

Guildedearlobe I read on of his books before that I didn‘t click with but this one looks interesting. 14mo
