Narrated by Sorcha Cusack, Meat is one of the most disturbing books I have listened to in a long time. This book was suggested to me by Audible due to my love of zombie books. Clocking in at 10.5 hours, Meat follows Abyrne, a small town in the middle of the wasteland. Abyrne is run by two factions, a religious institution that holds meat sacred and the factory farm which slaughters it. You quickly find out that there is something very wrong with the where the “Meat” is coming from. I know this book’s premise promotes vegetarianism, but I did not find it too preachy.
As for the narration – it was great. Sorcha Cusack has a great range in her voice and she really brings this book to life. She does have a subtle British accent, which I find a bit odd. Even though the book never says it takes place in the USA, I always imagined it playing out in the midwest.
