My friend Matthew emailed me after reading this novella. He was raving about how great it was and now that I've read it, I have to agree.
I admit that I was turned off a little by the title, but the story inside isn't about weightlifting, and it's not for the faint of heart. This is an emotional tale with characters that wrap their arms so tightly around the reader that it's hard to breathe.
I recommend this novella to readers/lovers of dark fiction, and a big thanks goes out to Matthew for the Kindle loan!
