Where to start ! - this book is grotesque, brutal , hideous but utterly compelling - I could not put it down ! A virus wipes out the animal population leading to an industry of cannibalism - and just when you think there is a flicker of goodness emerging ….
It‘s an Argentinian translation - short and very disturbing - not for the faint hearted - I think it will stay with me for a long time .

Cathythoughts Great review. I still remember it and that ending. Great book. As you say , not for the faint hearted 👍🏻❤️ 1mo

Well, the cozy Christmas book wasn't working for me, so I went in a...different direction. It's definitely weird. But at 200 pages, I think I can get through this one and hopefully get my mojo back.

Holy forkballs this book was so disturbing and so good! If you are squeamish, you may find it difficult to get past the idea of cannibalism, but if you can, the message of this book comes through loud and clear. The dehumanization of certain individuals, the blight of factory farming, capitalism coming above everything else, and the fragile state of the world due to our own gross abuse of our environment.

A very clever and unique dystopian novel where cannibalism is legalised.
I described the plot to my colleagues today, and they were hooked 🤣
This is certainly not for those of a squeamish nature, and it is deeply unnerving.
Also, the last sentence made me throw my book at the wall.

This book dives right into a dystopian world where people are farming people and killing them for meat. It is worth the read, especially for some of the statements it makes, but be aware this isn‘t for the faint of heart.

Due to a highly contagious (and questionable) disease all animals are killed. In order to keep up with the demand for meat we turn to eating humans...

I'm not sure I'd recommend this to anyone, though it is a pick. If the above quote doesn't tell you what to expect, I don't know what would. This was a rough one, especially because it doesn't feel that far-fetched...

This was BRUTAL! But I loved it! It will definitely not be for everyone! The depravity is endless. All animals must be eliminated due to a toxic virus that has swept the globe. As a result humans are manufactured for food, called special meat. The ending blew my head off!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Reggie Ooof that ending. I kept wondering how he was gonna keep her a secret. I went vegan for 6 months after reading this. And my dad who I gave a copy to for a long time said he couldn‘t not think about where the meat he ate came from. 8mo
Rissreads @reggie it was so clever in how it made you think about things. How we all cope with the truth by using different language. Out of sight out of mind! Yes the ending. I must admit I was shocked how brutal they became with her. She was just an object to get what they needed. 8mo

3⭐️. A little disappointed, could have been a lot better. I don‘t know if it‘s because it was translated to English instead of written in English but I felt the same way about another Spanish to English translated book I tried to read. I wonder if things tend to get lost in translation? I loved the whole premise though! The ending had me sad, stunned, and saying “wtf?!”

Finally! I got locked out and due to some dramatic adult stuff didn‘t get my life together to get back my account until recently. Just in time to finish Tender is the Flesh and have a real nice, cozy existential crisis, because seriously. I was trying to explain this to my sister and said it‘s so horrific but so clinical. I think that‘s what made it so horrific for me. Future world where we breed humans for meat. NO THANK YOU

⭐️⭐️⭐️ I willingly just read a novel about sanctioned cannibalism. Why?? For the literary merit, I guess. Ugh. Simultaneously an allegory on factory farming and a commentary on how a deadly virus can fully conform a society into committing absolute atrocities. Often shocking for shock‘s sake. There are some truly provocative moments, but too many plot holes. Mostly I just felt queasy and wanted it to end.

CBee I have no desire to read this whatsoever 😳🫢 13mo

vivastory This one didn't really work for me either except as a straight up horror story. If you want a more subtle look at cannibalism I recommend Faber's Under the Skin. That one has really stuck with me for years. 13mo

This was a pretty impulsive add to my reading schedule for this month. As a horror buff, I thoroughly enjoy it when a book can surprise me and genuinely make my skin crawl. That‘s honestly what I look for in any horror novel I read, though very few actually deliver in that regard. Here‘s hoping I found a good one!

If this doesn't basically put you off food in general and meat particularly, you have a stronger will than I do. So this is about cannibalism. But it's not really.

A post pandemic future where animals spread a deadly virus so our new meat is humans. Humans bred for that purpose. The book follows a slaughterhouse manager through the new meat reality. This horror novella is definitely horrifying. It is also incredibly boring and tedious. I don‘t quite get the hype. 1.5⭐️

If this review comes up twice, I apologize. But this was an okay book. I thought it would be perfect for me after hearing people discussing it. It‘s the first book I almost bailed on, but only because of the small fact that the book does something repetitive very often. Other than that. It‘s a ride of a book that I can say at least read it once just to see the hype. I kinda did enjoy the book but it was a strong half and half.

I reached my goal of 40 books for the year with this wild read! Not for everyone, but if you can stomach the graphic and disturbing details of a dystopian world where cannibalism is legal, and you like dark, disgusting books that make you think, then I would recommend. Some scenes were a bit unnecessary (TW for rape, animal abuse, etc) but it's a pick and I loved it because it was hard to put down, compelling beginning to end 😬

CaliforniaCay Thanks again @Sleepswithbooks for sending this one! Books I get as gifts usually sit around for a while collecting dust because I'm a mood reader. But after reading The Dangers of Smoking in Bed, I guess I was in the mood for a creepy book written by an Argentine author, so perfect timing 😅 1y

A short book, but still too much to consume in one sitting (pun intended). The premise, though over the top and unrealistic, stirs a lot of internal thoughts on how society is so willing to dehumanize others. It‘s gory, graphic, and as I finished I threw it down in disgust, but it‘s a pick because it says more about the human condition than most books.

When a virus makes all animal flesh worldwide inedible, human cannibalism becomes legal and normalized over time. Marcos helps run a human slaughterhouse, carrying out the required daily tasks that enable the smooth production of human meat.

With its casual, everyday depiction of a cannibalism-fueled society, full of characters living in an inherently apathetic world, this book is a truly terrifying—and realistic—dystopian nightmare.🏭💀🥩

The setting is a dystopian near-future where animals have been eradicated because of a virus, so the populace has begun to raise humans as a source of meat. The protagonist works at a processing plant, and is having some problems with his work and family. This novel has some truly horrific scenes that demonstrate man‘s capabilities for compartmentalization and violence toward people and animals. This is not a book for the sensitive reader.

Reggie Oh man, I let 2 coworkers borrow this and one of them this week said he hasn‘t eaten meat yet. Lol I loved this book. 2y

A very thin, simplistic narrative about loss & grief. The setting is a world devoid of animals so humans are processed & killed for meat. The book gets its hype through a vivid description of a person getting killed and butchered. It won‘t make you become a vegan (if that‘s the intention) because the plot contrivance is too unbelievable. Seek out the film El Patrón: That‘ll do a good job of putting you off meat & I suspect it influenced this book

This book is overwhelmingly unpleasant, portraying a dystopian future where the only source of meat is the humans bred for the purpose. It challenges you not to look away and as a meat eater (and human) I‘m not sure we should look away. It takes a strong stomach to read though. Subject matter aside, I enjoyed the spare, simple writing, and the cleverness of what is left unsaid. This was a book club read and we couldn‘t stop talking about it.
