bookshelves: buddy-read, fucked-up-shit

This book is about after.

After his partner leaves, disappears completely, Lukas is left floundering. Wondering.

After he finds out that his partner consented to be killed and eaten by another person, Lukas is left horrified and confused. What about the man he loved? How little did he really know about Bernard?

This book is Lukas putting his pieces back together, trying to deal with the ghosts that Bernard's disappearance and death left him with. Trying to find ways to handle all of this that has been heaped upon him. What do you do when you find out your partner left you to be eaten? It's a strange situation, one no one would ever expect to be in, and we see Lukas as he struggles through life in the after.

He has to make peace with Bernard's ghost before he can truly move on and he's grasping at ways to do that.

This book is haunting and heavy and quite a good read.
