What I liked best about this book was the imagination, the imagery. It's all very ghastly and putrid, which I love. That being said, it's short, so characters didn't feel quite developed enough, there were some issues with the writing style I wasn't as engaged as I would have liked , but overall it's worth it for the world-building.
Is there a sequel?
I'd read it just to see where his creativity takes us. Weird and annoying This started off good but quickly became weird with the talking wound. I've never read a book as dumb as this one and hope I never do again. The way the wound talked was a grating on my nerves. I don't see how this was published.

My favorite quotes from the book: "Scavengers. That's what we become in the end. They make you big or small, but they make you, no way around it. What could threaten a force as vast as life? Litle sparks were banked and ended but the wildfire would rage ever on, shifting and moving and burning bright through all eternity.

Ivan Ewert knows food, and knows how to write about it. The question is, however, what qualifies as food? The feeling of uneasiness as each character unfolds and becomes familiar grows as the book progresses.
But this "unease" is good - "Famished" is a horror book. Anything less than an anxious, uneasy, wrongly anticipatory feeling would be boring.

Aug 04, Elizabeth rated it really liked it. Great horror story. I enjoyed the pull between the characters. And the friction between the ghouls who live the old ways and the ghouls who want something more. There was a bit of misdirection in the plot and the ending was an action-packed blood bath. My only negative comment is that it followed many vampire narratives that I have read before, so once the ending started I wasn't surprised. Still it was a great fast-paced read.
People wh Great horror story. People who like monster narratives should pick this one up! Oct 05, Christopher Tatro rated it it was amazing Shelves: partially-read. I'm pretty squeamish about medical things but am no stranger to horror fiction. Still, I didn't expect to be so freaked out by this book that I fainted while reading it. On an airplane. There is obviously something very wrong with Ivan that is not immediately evident. The Farm is a wonderful piece of American Horror. Gordon Verlander, the protagonist, is unknowingly descended from a group with very dark proclivities.
Falling into the hands of the group, the Farm, his is faced with the past his ancestors fled from, and given terrible choices. Tightly written and fast moving, it was a tense tale and very well-told. Oct 05, Chris Bart rated it really liked it Shelves: ebooks. At first I didn't think I would like this as much as I did, it's just not my preferred genre. But once I got into the meat of the story, I couldn't put it down.
Still, I'll think twice about going to dinner at Ivan's house. Jan 06, Kristian rated it really liked it. I was a bit disgusted, but found myself coming back to it and wondering how I was going to get to the end. It took some turns that surprised me and I find myself wanting the next book.
