FUR is a wrenching and brutal
modern-day Shakespearean Tragedy
that will leave you horrified and heart broken.
The old aged pensioners of Boxford are very set in their ways, loyal to each other and their daily routines. With families and loved ones either moved on to pastures new or maybe even the next life, these folk can get dependent on one another.
But what happens when the natural ailments of old age begin to take their toll?
What if they were given the opportunity to heal and overcome the things that make every day life less tolerable?
What if they were given this ability without their consent?
When a group of local thugs attack the village’s wealthy Victor Krauss they unwittingly create a maelstrom of events that not only could destroy their home, but everyone in and around it.
Are the old folk the cause or the cure of the horrors?
FUR, by the incomparable Matthew Cash, is a wrenching and brutal modern-day Shakespearean Tragedy that will leave you horrified and heart broken. The story evoked a series of emotions, making me feel conflicted, sad, and angry at intervals. With expert characterization, Cash creates “bad guys” who are too real to be wholly bad and “good guys” who are too bad to be wholly good. This masterfully crafted story is enthralling and gruesome, the ending emotionally wrenching.
While not technically “Extreme Horror,” FUR does contain some very disturbing content and brutality that can be considered “Extreme.” It is not for the squeamish or easily offended. Cash pulls no punches in this one. That being said, it is superbly written with excellent pace, shocking twists, realistic characters, and a very compelling story line. And, at 500+ pages, this is a fully fleshed out, meaty novel.
FUR is, quite simply, a genre Masterpiece.
