The Eaters


Must read 🏆

A great dystopian read set in a creative world filled with fascinating monsters.

We are living in a new era; an era marked by the Abyss' ascension; an era where food, space, you name it, has become a privilege. Time is precious and, therefore, life is precious. Life isn't precious when everyone lives equally. It is now the survival of the fittest."

I had high expectations coming into this book.

And I was not disappointed.

My favourite genre to read is dystopian, and The Eaters truly encapsulated everything I love in a story. There was tension, suspense, and a whole lot of action. I found myself rooting for characters and violently cursing others because I had gotten so invested in the novel by the time I had reached just page 43.

As a writer myself, I read from both a reader and writer's perspective. And it's safe to say that The Eaters has surpassed the guidelines of things I look for in books.

Like I mentioned with my rating, it's a must-read. It reminded me a lot of The Maze Runner, so if you're a fan of that (like I am), I say give this book a shot. You might surprise yourself.

From the beginning to end, I was totally enraptured by the world, and the whole aspect of "The Eaters." They are fascinating to read about, and you could tell that the author put a lot of work into developing the creatures into something grotesque, and imperfect in its own way.

From reading his Afterword, I learned that this book showcased the way he saw the world, with flaws and all, which I think is a beautiful way of interpreting it. He even wrote:

That being said, if you understand me as a writer, you'll have a greater appreciation for my story.

And I think I did.

Overall, reading this book was a thrilling experience, one that I did not regret one bit. I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye out on the sequel very closely. (very, very closely)



I need to know what happens next!!
