I don't generally read gross books.  Or books that get gory.  Hence, why I never attempted a Stephen King novel, or watch horror movies.  Gross stuff is not for me.  Undone by Karin Slaughter bordered on almost too gross.  It's another book in the Will Trent series and THE book where Will crosses paths with Sara Linton (from the Grant County series).  And ya ALL know how much I love when my characters continue on ;)

So in Undone a woman naked woman is run over by an elderly couple in the road.  She is rushed to the hospital and it's apparent that she has suffered serious torture and her RIB has been removed.  Will happens to be at the hospital because his partner was in the ER and Sarah is the doc to get the patient.

Now the horrors that were done to this woman and OTHERS is almost on my line of too much.  Eye stabbed so she can't see, a rib removed, ear drum punctured, trash bags shoved into her vagina. Just ugh.  So much ughhh.

I was probably only able to go because there wasn't any torture happening IN the book.  Just done in the past.  I may have had to set it down. 

I can't say too much more without giving away spoilers but after you find out who did it in the end I kind of snickered about having the truth smack you in the face. ;)

Do you like reading gory books or watching horror movies?
