May 03, Luna rated it really liked it Shelves: Everything that I adored about the previous book is still there. But one thing is missing; Sasha. The relocation to America has bought a few challenges. Continuously bullied he begins to plot revenge as only a Savage can.
I thought American Savage balanced the time spent on each character well. Everyone had their own story; it makes you more attached to the characters. Both Titus and Ivan changed from the first book, particularly Ivan. I really liked the direction Matt Whyman took with that character. I could quite happily read a book about the Savage family every year. May 26, Kumara rated it really liked it Shelves: Books about cannibals are few and far between, you cant go into a book shop with out been bitten in the ass by a zombie book but would have to search hard for novel about cannibals so it made a nice change to read a novels with living breathing flesh eaters instead of the undead kind.
Not that this is a horror novel, more of a slice of life drama with a family full of Dexters with a young teenage Dexter as the most intresting character in the novel. There are multiple story lines in the novel, m Books about cannibals are few and far between, you cant go into a book shop with out been bitten in the ass by a zombie book but would have to search hard for novel about cannibals so it made a nice change to read a novels with living breathing flesh eaters instead of the undead kind.
There are multiple story lines in the novel, maybe a bit to many but they all share dark undertones from obsession to revenge to fear to old age and death. The cannibalistic tendencys of these characters is something that just makes them a little bit more interesting.

I really enjoyed the dark humour of the novel which was well written and not overly complacated. Overall a entertaining read that's a little bit different. As I received this book in a first reads giveaway, I have not read the first book in the series, something I plan to rectify as soon as possible. Jun 02, Christina rated it liked it Shelves: The Savages are cannibals. To read more about the family, you can read my review of the first book in the series: Without telling you too much about the plot as this book is part of a series, I enjoyed this book.
There are new characters and slightly different plot and different problems for the characters to face and I think I enjoyed this more than the first. The Savages series is fun and definitely not to be taken too seriously but the writing style makes you take notice. It's in The Savages are cannibals. It's interesting how Whyman can make you forget he's talking about cannibalism, even though it's openly discussed and explained on almost every page and even makes it sound like a positive, delicious nutritious choice that can prolong your life and have numerous health benefits.
Which is absurd when you realise how positively he's portraying cannibalism and how it comes off as though he's speaking about something accepted in todays society. In my opinion, this is why Whyman is an excellent writer and I would definitely recommend reading this book. Oct 28, Philip Goddard rated it it was amazing.
From the moment I began reading this book I was hooked. It does not try and shock with gore or violence, in what could have been a feast of a taboo subject bent on easy titillation. The showdown with the threat to the family is masterly and underplayed. The ethics are suitably skewed and handled with deft explanation that allows the reader to identify and relish how the narrative plays out.
The fact that this authors readers, having read the first book, are not treated like children by returning From the moment I began reading this book I was hooked. The fact that this authors readers, having read the first book, are not treated like children by returning to the shock and circuitous revelations to ease them into the realities of this family's eating habits is a testament to him.
It's wonderfully dark and a great sequel to the first book which I enjoyed immensely. Jul 04, Beth rated it liked it. I was excited to read this because I loved The Savages. I did enjoy this book a lot and the characters were just as dark and funny but there wasn't quite the same atmosphere of them being discovered in this compared to the first.
I preferred Sasha's character to Amanda and the storyline wasn't as engaging.
I did like the fact that they open a vegan cafe as a front and I think that Amanda's passionate campaigning against meat eaters while still eating humans was funny. Ivan was great as always, h I was excited to read this because I loved The Savages. Ivan was great as always, he is such a strange character and his fitting into Amercan life carried the story with his elaborate revenge plot to get back at the bullies from school.
I would still recommend this but I don't think it quite lived up to the first book. Jul 01, Lisa rated it liked it Shelves: I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. At first I was unsure that I should read it or not because it was the second in a series and I had not read the first book. However after reading it, I rated it four out of five stars. This was because I continued to enjoy the way the author, Matt Whyman had written it so that it distinctively skips between each family member's story. American Savage tells the malicious, monstrous and malevolent life of a family of contemporary cannibals!
Feb 23, Charlotte rated it really liked it Shelves: Again an enjoyable read just like The Savages. It's still very much character-driven and all about how family comes first which I love. Though this time not everh character got their chance to shine which was a shame. It is difficult to find fault with this series but I think the novelty of it weared off in the sequel and it just didn't captivate me as much. Nonetheless I recommend this series for its chilling content, good storytelling and dark humour.
The Savages would love to have you join th Again an enjoyable read just like The Savages. The Savages would love to have you join them. Jun 04, Sophia Nash rated it really liked it. I haven't read the first in this series, having received this book through Goodreads first reads giveaway, but I plan to correct that soon. I went into this book a bit apprehensive; horrors aren't really my thing. Yet to my surprise I adored American Savage.
It's not such a horror as it is more a book about ordinary! Matt Whyman's writing is brilliantly dark yet funny, more people need to know about this book. May 28, Jenny Martin rated it it was amazing. Although I think I prefer the first book just slightly, American Savage has the same black comedy and focus on family that drew me in in the first place, and kept me reading and laughing all the way through.
Get A Copy
I really enjoy how neatly it's written, plot-wise; there are several storylines introduced throughout the book, but each one is sufficiently resolved. The only thing I wish could have been different was the lack of Sasha! I really hope she returns in any future sequels. Nov 30, Cosmina rated it liked it Shelves: I felt the story lacked the pacing of the first one and I missed having Sasha around. The first half of the book was super slow and took quite a while to get through since nothing was really happening. Jun 22, Alison Loftus rated it really liked it Shelves: A bizarre book with a few twists and turns.
I haven't read the first book but that didn't matter as It was easy to get to know the characters in the sequel. Although I am a little confused as to what happens at the end, this is definitely a well written and original book! Would be happy to read any more sequels if they were published.
