This book is genuinely horrifying. It's obscene, violent and revolting, which is just what it should be. Monsters are awful; teenagers are awful. I don't think there is another single book like this one in existence. It's brilliant that Anna wrote it and that there are still people like Barry at Transit Lounge who will publish fiction as unrelenting as this. I kind of wish I'd read this when I was 16: I wonder what I would have thought of it...

In Human is one of my absolute favourite books. It's an experience, and an eye opening look at what prose can be. It's raw and vicious and sensual and gross, it's so many things all at the same time.

Growing up as I did, in a rural town in Australia, so much of this book resonated with me. And Sally, the main character gets to do something that many teenagers, dream of. She gets power, strange, sweet, alien power. Her body becomes monstrous and beautiful, like the transformations of adolescence.

Don't like sorry. Not going to finish it.
I have plenty more books to read that I know I will like.
