My review copy of The Breeders by Matthew J. Beier arrived in the mail last week. I've left it out in plain sight for my friends to peruse without pressure. But now I am taking my turn.
"Matthew Beier’s debut novel tells the intimate story of two people bound by the force of life itself as they set out to protect their unborn child and find value for themselves in a world that has rendered them worthless. This rainbow-tinted reflection of our own society--part political satire and part dystopian thriller--is a novel you won’t want to miss."Chapter one sucked me in.
The writing is smooth. The story intriguing. The alternative viewpoint makes you wonder. I can feel her fear, her confusion. Though it was so dramatically intense and laden with possibilities that I opted not to take it to the couch with me for my even unwind - because I was relatively sure it would not be a relaxing read.
I have since devoured chapter two and three during little snippets of time. I admit to being afraid of sitting down with this book. My full attention may just engage me to the point of abandoning all else until I've turned the last page!
The further I progress in the story, the more I will update you. Happy reading!
