9780316216814: Broken Monsters (Reading Group Guide)

"Scary as hell and hypnotic. I couldn't put it down...I'd grab it if I were you." --Stephen King

A criminal mastermind creates violent tableaus in abandoned Detroit warehouses in Lauren Beukes's new genre-bending novel of suspense.
Detective Gabriella Versado has seen a lot of bodies. But this one is unique even by Detroit's standards: half boy, half deer, somehow fused together. As stranger and more disturbing bodies are discovered, how can the city hold on to a reality that is already tearing at its seams?
If you're Detective Versado's geeky teenage daughter, Layla, you commence a dangerous flirtation with a potential predator online. If you're desperate freelance journalist Jonno, you do whatever it takes to get the exclusive on a horrific story. If you're Thomas Keen, known on the street as TK, you'll do what you can to keep your homeless family safe--and find the monster who is possessed by the dream of violently remaking the world.
If Lauren Beukes's internationally bestselling The Shining Girls was a time-jumping thrill ride through the past, her Broken Monsters is a genre-redefining thriller about broken cities, broken dreams, and broken people trying to put themselves back together again.

About the Author :

Lauren Beukes writes novels, comics and screenplays. She's the author of the critically-acclaimed international bestseller, The Shining Girls, about a time-traveling serial killer, Zoo City, a phantasmagorical Joburg noir which won the 2011 Arthur C Clarke Award, and the neo political thriller Moxyland. She worked as a journalist, a show runner on one of the South Africa's biggest animated TV shows, directed an award-winning documentary and wrote the New York Times best-selling graphic novel, Fairest: The Hidden Kingdom. She lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

Review :

"This one has a vivid sense of place and a colorful and interesting cast of characters . . . I will be looking forward to whatever Lauren Beukes does next. She's a major, major talent."―George R. R. Martin, BookBub

"Exquisitely paced and impeccably controlled . . . An enormously satisfying novel that employs the best attributes of multiple genres to dramatize big ideas about art, the Internet and urban decay."―New York Times Book Review

"Captivating . . . A thoroughly modern, supernatural thriller."―Karolina Waclawiak, Los Angeles Times

"Remarkable is Beukes's ability to blend genres, seamlessly incorporating horror, fantasy and traditional crime in ways that highlight the best parts of each. It feels new--unprecedented, in a way."―Madison Vain, Entertainment Weekly

"It's hard to overstate how ambitious Broken Monsters is, maybe because Beukes somehow manages to make it look easy. Her prose is unhindered, exuberant and something like addictive. . . . Broken Monsters is one of the most remarkable books of the year, and one of the best suspense novels you'll read in quite some time."―Michael Schaub, NPR

"Scary as hell and hypnotic. I couldn't put it down. . . . I'd grab it, if I were you."―Stephen King

"Dig it: what a brilliant crime-phantasmagoria novel this is!!!!! This splendid novel is THE new primer on urban decay to the nth degree. I unhesitatingly urge you to buy it and read it now!"―James Ellroy
