The reader is not reading a book. He is trying to dramatize it and doing a bad job at it. Overacting and badly delivered voices destroyed the book for me. That is a shame since I really liked the stories.
I have never read anything by Michelle Paver before so this was a pleasent surprise. A chillng ghost-story set in the most desolate and isolated enviroment imaginable and with characters that really feels alive. I'm usually not very fond of novels written in diary-form but Michelle Paver's prose pulls it through all the way to the ghastly ending.
I recommend the book to anyone interested in good ghost-stories and will certainly look up her other works as well.
The basic idea for Meat is thought-provoking and sickening. However its quite clear right from the beginning that this should had been a short-story, not a novel - The author fails to deliver a story an boggles down into preaching and occasional rape-fests.
The narrater does a good job but the music between each chapter is disruptive.
