Post’s novel Chop Shop is one of those stories where everything is thrown in and it will either work or be a disastrous concoction. We have a cast of highly unlikable characters bar one, people who are really quite shallow and self centred wrapped up in the world of organised crime or get rich schemes. You also have a plot that is dangerously spinning out of control and you are left with a fun page turning interesting and enjoyable gangster hard core thriller that hurls you towards it traumatic ...more

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This book was a lot. There were a lot of different plot lines and characters that all converged nicely into one story. It was fast paced and you're tossed into the action immediately, which I always love. Some of the characters were quite likeable and you definitely ended up rooting for them, and some of the characters were NOT likeable--but fortunately they mostly end up dead.

Except Cornelius. My dude, get a different hobby.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I’m not sure what I just read but it was wild from start to finish, and highly enjoyable. I couldn’t put the book down.

There are actually 3 different stories in this book, but they all connect after a while.

I enjoyed this book immensely. Equal parts humorous and gross. Definitely recommend this book.

Pulp fiction meets Sam Peckinpah .... 3 worlds collide into a giant fireball! Andrew Post crafts a tour de force of black humor .. laced with wonderful gratuitous violence and gore. The main protagonist is Frank Goode ... disgraced surgeon back from prison but yet continuing to ply his trade in his make-shift dining room operating room. After all he still follows the Hippocratic oath and wants to save and fix all comers. To satisfy the taxman he maintains a legitimate job at Jerry's Organic Gro ...more

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review of this book. Thank you Netgalley and Andrew Post.

Chop Shop, where to start? Let’s start with the title and cover. Talk about an attention grabber! Right away, I thought that this book looked cool. Never judge a book by its cover, except when the cover is cool, am I right?! And that blurb: “Sometimes running a business can cost an arm and a leg. Literally.” Sign me on up!

Chop Shop uses intersecting story lines to bring together various criminal elements and divergent perspectives. It's great in terms of getting new perspectives and slices of life, but it makes it difficult when it comes to creating a story line to focus on.

Still, the seemingly disconnected stories do intertwine nicely once Post brings them together.

The premise behind Chop Shop is outlandish and the story itself borders on unbelievable. Despite its premise, Chop Shop is NOT gore porn - a fact tha

This was a thrilling read from start to finish. You definitely won’t get bored with this one.

I feel like more could have been done with Amber and Jolene’s story but they were great nonetheless.

Frank really hit me in the feels a lot. He tried so hard to do the right thing.

Crime, murder, mayhem and necrophilia. This book has it all.

If feel like the ending was a bit rushed but overall it was a decent read.

Frightful and intriguing concept but the editing left something to be desired. Pages and pages of useless monologue made me want to poke my eye out.

Quentin Tarantino meets the Sopranos. Post creates a page turner here involving a disgraced doctor fixing up gangsters and two women who run a failing funeral home who get into black market body part dealing. Throw in dueling monsters in the mix.  It sounds like there's a lot going on, and there is, but Post manages the chaos brilliantly.

While not for the faint of heart, there is gore aplenty, if the plot sounds interesting to you, you'll get everything you hoped for and more.

Thank you to Netgalley, Flame tree press and Andrew Post for the chance to enjoy this novel in return for my unbiased review.

I did enjoy parts of this book, i thought so much more could have been made of the story but what we had was still good!

I honestly felt like i had fallen in to the sopranos everyone was out for something!

Some parts were violent and shocking but i did find myself even laughing at the dark parts!

Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to read this book for my honest opinion.
This was truly a bizarre story. Yet it makes you wonder if it doesn't truly occur out there in a manner of expression. Everyone is trying to make a buck but at what cost?
What would you do if you were in dire straights and really needed the money? At what cost would you go to get the money? There is a black market out there that does exist, that involves the selling of human internal organs. People will pay good money for

Long after souls have departed for Hades' realm, their bodies remain earthbound, buried or incinerated - or are they?

Andrew Post writes a good narrative and manages
to hook his readers in easily.
This is a tongue in cheek murder/gangster novel with plenty of blood and gore for those who enjoy it.
Jolene and Amber are owners of a funeral parlour but due to their partying lifestyle their business is floundering and debts are mounting up.
They get roped into black market dealing of human body parts, unfortunately the first delivery goes wrong and has an overwhelming effect on their lives. How far will they go to
