They never caught it
During the winter of 2017, a series of strange occurrences took place in a small town of northern Maine. A rational explanation for what happened has still not been presented. Now, for the first time, all the available written evidence is being released to the public from what is commonly known as the Freyston case.
Human Flesh was originally published in Danish to great reviews and is now available in English. This dark winter horror story will also satisfy crime lovers, as the plot is told through written evidence in a fictitious murder case. For fans of Hannibal Lecter and Pet Sematary.
Ok, so this story is pretty creepy. Human Flesh is unlike anything I’ve read before. It’s kind of sad, but not how you would think. I can definitely see a resemblance to some of the earlier Stephen King works in the progression of the story.
It’s told via a series of blog posts, emails, police interviews, and text messages, giving it an unusual method of storytelling to begin with. I wasn’t sure I would enjoy the way it was done, but I have to say it gave the story an extra level of eeriness.
I would like to have seen more explanations on some of what was going on, but it wasn’t because the author didn’t explain it. I think it’s because I just like more details and more…I don’t know…stuff lol.
Human Flesh is a very short read. I think I finished it in just a few hours. If you are looking for something unusual and mysterious, this may a good fit for you.
