Liam Brown – Real Monsters

 

Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.

The copy of Real Monsters that I received was an uncorrected proof, but it was already of a higher standard than most manuscripts, and whilst I did pick up on a couple of typos here and there, they didn’t detract from the story.

Loosely speaking, Real Monsters is a sort of political allegory which takes a look at our modern wars with extremists and reflects it, as if you’re looking at it through one of those weird mirrors that you get at carnivals. It’s also a love story, presented in the format of two first-person narratives, one of which comes in the form of a letter from a soldier to his loved one back home.

Eventually, the two worlds collide, with serious consequences – Brown is making a statement on war here, but I’m not sure what it actually is. The beauty is that it forces you to decide for yourself.
