Review:

      I received a free copy of this book for review . Thank you , Matt !

      I do not know how to describe this book. It is a tragic love story ? It’s a black humor comedy ? It’s a black humor comedy ? Yes , a bit of everything . But above all, this book is an uncompromising portrait of a world in which opposites attract and secrets can cost life of peoples. I was finished this book  at 1:30 in th morning and this book make me thinking about a lot of things . The food we ate , our darkside , everything. And this book have a lot of  potential.The principal characters are Savage family . They are a family like everybody else , except that the others family don`t eat human flesh and don`t decapitated  supermodels in the bathroom ( But it was a accident. I trust you,Ivan,I really do!). So let`s met the family. Oleg Savage , russian solider , Titus`s dad. Even he is old it was a very nice character ( That type of frandpa how love his family anything happend ) even though he is older and needs help to find the bathroom.Angelica Savage, perfect mother who had obsession making everything perfect (including food and – of course ! – shopping .) Titus Savage, leads the family, with clear ideas about how it should look and behave family. And buissness man. Ivan Savage, a strange kid who make sinsiter joke, make his sister feel angry and like other normal kid …
decapitated  supermodels in the bathroom ( But it was a accident. Course I trust you,Ivan). Katya, a little sweet angel,who can say only ,, Mince ! ” and ,, Cheese !” but who it`s ready to be present at a special family feast. And in the end, Sasha Savage , a sixteen teenager who belive in love ( with a handsome guy called Jake) and want to keep secret the fact that she tried to be a vegetarian , which is quite difficult in a family so  … ,, Carnivorous ” as Savage family . She was my favorite character, I agree that. And other character , Vermont English, a private dectective increase  after the disappearance of a supermodel in the Savage`s family house  decides to investigate a closer case . ( But it was a ac…  NOT again,Ivan!). This book was one of the best i read in last few months and I really encourages you to order her from Amazon after 6 July.

The idea of cannibalism was relatively new to me ( Do not worry! Talking about the book. ) I read few books about zombie and a lot about vampire. So, it was a first and that`s make me like this book and don`t forget her sooner.   
P.S: You can also read the interview i take to Matt here. 
My rating : 5/5
