This book pulls no punches. It is pretty clear from the beginning that this is not going to be a happy-go-lucky hiking/camping trip. At merely 4% into the book, we meet Ted, and while we don't yet know his name, we do know things will not end on a happy note. He muses that the group was "...trekking towards the woods, unaware of what awaited inside. Not just death, but torture and pain beyond their wildest, most vivid nightmares." As others have stated, the gore was abundant. There are a couple places where I thought I may vomit. Some of the stuff was pretty brutal. But if you have a strong stomach, and like weird stuff this is it. Because these aren't your typical hillbilly cannibal folk.
This is my second Lee Mountford book and both were very good. Highly recommend this one!
