Has anyone else read the YA book Tender Morsels?
The begining was rather shocking to me and some parts of the book I am finding rather uncomfortable.
I do think the book is well written, I like the characters but some areas just make me wriggle in discomfort.

Anyone felt this way?

I was more than slightly amazed that Tender Morsels was promoted as YA given its content.  All in all I thought it was a relatively good book, but it is very much not to my taste.  It certainly wasn't my first pick for last year's World Fantasy Award, but the judges felt otherwise..  I don't plan to read any more of Lanagan's work as I understand it is all very similar and once was more than enough for me.

Yeah I am rather surprised its aimed at teens too.  I will not being reading any more of this authors work if they are similar to this. Thanks for the warning. Just hoping the ending will be good.
