HOLLY, JAWLY CHRISTMAS T-SHIRT, hoodie, sweater shirt
I received a free ARC of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
“My womb was a factory component and would couple with someone’s testes, which were also a factory component, in order to produce babies.” Hmm, okay what?
This is the first novel I have read by Sayaka Murata and I can see why she is popular in Japan and now being translated for a wider audience. What started as a quirky tale with some dark undertones quickly escalated into a much more disturbing and bizarre tale with a shocking conclusion.
Earthlings is at times humorous, at times unsettling, but always bizarre. Although the novel broaches topics from incest to cannibalism to murder, one would certainly not be able to tell from the cover or short blurb for the novel. While I am a fan of fiction with darker tones and do not typically mind a book with subject material that could be considered “disturbing”, I did find the graphic sexual abuse of a minor to be quite unsettling and think that other readers should be aware of the content before jumping into this story.
