Read full description of the books Mother's Boys:This book beat me up and I loved every second of it!
A group of us Goodreads readers have been reading a lot of books from Valancourt Books lately. (If you're interested, feel free to join us in the Horror Aficionados Group.) Sweetheart, Sweetheart by Bernard Taylor having been the most recent. After that KILLER novel, and having read The Godsend a short while before, we decided we needed even MORE Bernard Taylor and we decided to read this one, even though it wasn't from Valancourt. (Forgive us, VB!)
This book was a blast! From the title you can probably guess this was a book about boys. Specifically, Mother's but more to the point, EVIL'S. And you know what? I'm not going to say anything more about this story other than it breaks several societal taboos and it does so in a most spectacular, sometimes distasteful, fashion. Even so, I couldn't pull myself away from it. It was like a car wreck you came upon on the highway...you don't want to look, but you can't help yourself. In this case you knew the wreck was coming, you just didn't know how and when it would arrive. And then it hits you, SMACK! Right in the face!
I did feel that one certain portion of the ending went a little over the top, which is why I deducted one star. However, it did make me giggle with delight, so there's that.
I felt compelled to finish this story almost as soon as I started it. I love when that happens, don't you? I feel like last year's author obsession, Michael McDowell, has now been surpassed by one I'm having with Bernard Taylor. (I'm still obsessed with McDowell, don't get me wrong, but I don't have any more of his books to read.) With Taylor, I've added a metric shit-ton of his books to my TBR on Goodreads and I plan to track them down as soon as I possibly can!
Highly recommended for fans of 80's horror and for fans of stories about evil children!
