Why read it?

1 author picked Stork as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Years later, Suzey is still battling the stork, convinced that it is responsible for her inability to have a baby.

McKenzie is another great author who can weave elements of gore and depravity into an engrossing story full of great, well-developed characters. This one was especially superb and will keep you on the edge of your seat as you witness Suzey’s downward spiral.

From Angel's list on disturbing horror.
