    I HATE having to write bad reviews, but unfortunately I have been left with little choice. So here goes: - Spelling and grammar mistakes I can overlook small errors and oversights, no-one is perfect, but there were so many in this book that it seriously impeded the flow, enjoyment, and understanding of the story. Lots of sentences genuinely didn't make sense, and there were far too many uses of spellings such as "thru" and "tho". Seriously. Also, despite the fact that the main character says "Damn I HATE having to write bad reviews, but unfortunately I have been left with little choice. So here goes: - Spelling and grammar mistakes I can overlook small errors and oversights, no-one is perfect, but there were so many in this book that it seriously impeded the flow, enjoyment, and understanding of the story. Lots of sentences genuinely didn't make sense, and there were far too many uses of spellings such as "thru" and "tho". Seriously. Also, despite the fact that the main character says "Damn" a lot, it was spelt as "Dam" every single time. - Dialogue Not only was the dialogue formatted incorrectly, running into other sentences, not separated from the rest of the text, and often with inaccurate use of speechmarks, but it was extremely wooden and unrealistic. And often mind-numbingly dull. Check out this gem: "Jack said 'Hi,' to Mark Jr., Mark Jr. said 'Hi,' back to Jack." - Plot The plot would have to be the redeeming feature, but it wasn't. It really wasn't. The plot centres around the small town of Medway in Maine, in 1891, and the "lawman" Mark Jr. who is trying to solve a string of brutal murders, in which prostitutes are mutilated and killed. But the story is painfully slow (there are extremely long passages describing in great depth exactly what Mark Jr. had for his dinner and what he bought from the shops), with extraordinarily little action from Mark Jr. who seems completely baffled by a case which the reader probably figured out in the first few pages. It is also laden with cliches (view spoiler)[ such as the fact that the killer, a butcher called Jack who mutilates and kills prostitutes is not only reminiscent of Jack the Ripper, but is actually Jack the Ripper himself (hide spoiler)] and in parts extremely unconvincing (view spoiler)[ such as Mark Jr. managing to catch Jack the Ripper when Scotland Yard can't, despite the fact that he does very little actual work, and then being awarded with a knighthood, revealed in this thrilling way: "Mark Jr. said, 'It's a sword from the queen, and she knighted me." (hide spoiler)] The story then descends into bizarre supernatural depths, creating an entirely unsatisfying and completely unrealistic resolution. I don't stop reading books when I've started them, especially such short books, but I very nearly made an exception for 'Meat your Maker'. I am extremely sorry that I had to write such a harsh review, but I can assure you that it was entirely justified. I honestly think that 'Meat your Maker' is the worst book that I have ever read.

    Had a very interesting story line but there were so many spelling and grammar mistakes . I received this book through Goodreads Giveaways.

    The writing style is just not one that is my personal preference and so did not read the book. I felt the conversation was lacking something. Perhaps details between responses between characters. It did not feel natural, and I could not get any immersion as a result. This may just be my personal preference regarding style, but as a result, I ended up going to another book

    This was an interesting read. A mystery that wanted you to keep knowing more.A bit of romance and family moments to,all taken place in a small community town. The Local policeman trying to solve the murders of several woman and what takes place towards the end is a bit strange but keeps you hooked.I did notice a lot of spelling mistakes throughout this book though.Other than that,I quite enjoyed it.Thanks again

    I received a copy of this from Goodreads. I actually think this may have the making of a good story, but there are so many spelling, grammar and punctuation errors that I really can't keep trying to read it. With some decent editing, it would fare much better.

    "Meat Your Maker". Sort of interesting even with the errors in grammar. This book really needs some editing although I did read to the end. I received my copy of this book through Goodreads.
