REVIEW: OFFSPRING BY JACK KETCHUM

OFFSPRING
JACK KETCHUM
(SEQUEL TO OFF SEASON)
GENRE: HORROR

SYNOPSIS:

 The local sheriff of Dead River, Maine, thought he had killed them off ten years ago—a primitive, cave-dwelling tribe of cannibalistic savages. But somehow the clan survived. To breed. To hunt. To kill and eat. And now the peaceful residents of this isolated town are fighting for their lives.

MY TAKE

4 STARS

Offspring is the sequel to Ketchum's (gorfest) Off Season. The Woman is back, and she's got a whole new cannibal family. The beginning of the story starts with the cannibal clan taking out a 16 year old babysitter, the 18 month old baby, and the mother returning from a night out at the bar. Yeah, it's craziness all over again. Except this time, the cops know exactly what they are dealing with.

Even with that being the opening to the story, this book is still much tamer, in my opinion, than Off Season. I think this book is generally more about the characters (potential victims) than the gore factor this time around. Offspring was a quick and easy read. I think I finished it in a day and a half.
