I'm pretty squeamish, but every once in a while, I'll push myself way out of my comfort zone and try something like Claws. I'm glad I did.
Claws is an edge of your seat thriller without going overboard on the gore, even though there are a number of pretty horrific deaths. Ricky Sides is like James Patterson in that he can write a horrifying scene so matter-of-factly that I can read it without having nightmares for a week.
This book is a cracking good story and an absolute page turner.
