This book (now available at Genoa Branch Library) is the second book in the Hater trilogy. David Moody is the author of this strange, twisted series of books. This is usually not the kind of book I read, but I found the first book, Hater, to be so fascinating that I decided to read the whole trilogy. This book is not for the faint of heart. It is rather gruesome, yet the characters got under my skin and I kept reading to find out what happens to them. This dark tale tells of a world gone mad when two factions of the human population are fighting. No government exists any longer, no goods or services are being offered and its every individual for him/herself. The gore is pretty extreme but I need to find out what happens next so I will be reading the third book soon.
