Rezension zu "Watching" von JM Thorne

Our blood is their pleasure
misspidervor 3 Jahren

Watching starts right in the middle of a terrifying scenario: aliens have conquered earth and humans are kept in prisons. The aliens find pleasure in watching humans bleeding, set up as a cruel entertainment show with so-called Surgeons cutting people on a stage. Of course, most humans don't last long in this bloody game. Roo, who is the first-person narrator of this story, seems to last longer, and through his eyes and mind the reader not only becomes another observer to the bleeding sessions, but also learns his internal struggle from hopelessness to defying the aliens. In order to show the other men that they are still able to fight the aliens, he makes a final decision.

I really loved the idea behind this story. However, the further I read, the more repetitive it got and I missed some further development in the plot. For example, several times an alien is hurt and while at first their blood was like white goo, later on it was always tinged with red. It would have been interesting to elaborate on that physical change, maybe as a sign of some kind of evolution or transformation.

Even considering the already short length of this novella, it was too long for my taste to keep up a steady level of tension. The final outcome was satisfying but also foreseeable. It surely would have made some greater impact if delivered earlier and as more of a surprise.

(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
