*A Short Audiobook Review
I found this book on Twitter. What captured my interest first was the cover. It's macabre and creepy. Two things I really like. With an ambiguous title, I found myself needing to know this story. the question is, was it what I was looking for? This is Siphon by A. A. Medina.
This is one creepy story! Siphon is about Dr. Phillips (my maiden name) and his crap life. He's a hematopathologist with a job he despises and a co-worker he desires. He lives with his grandfather, who is a terrible bully and demeaning. He tries to find happiness living a quiet life. Until the blood... And the voice... And the hunger...
Siphon is disturbing, sinister and pervish. Yes, I made that word up, but it's true. The man does things, for reasons unknown. He's overcome with a ravenous need to take on a new means of nutrition by a voice that tells him there's no conventional means of escaping. But that's not all; he suddenly becomes a person even he can't mentally deal with nor identify with. It's makes the story that much more mystifying.
Even with the insane, inane dealings Gary is humorous but he's got issues. Issues that I didn't really like reading about. He disgusted me, which means Medina's writing was on point. This is a quick read and an even quicker listen if you get the audiobook as I did. Check out Siphon. Cheers!
