We Call It Monster by Lachlan Walter (Book Review #593)

We call it a monster is an apocalyptic horror story written in a world where monsters start appearing from the ocean in Sydney and slowly take over the world. As the military takes over in order to assist people and ratify the situation, people are left with basically surviving the situation.


There wasn’t one confident protagonist that I felt took the substantial lead in the story, but what did exist was a cast of people that worked well together. The story is told in the third person, and each chapter takes up various plotlines combining all into one towards the end.


The story discusses tribal life, cultures, survival instincts, and takes upon explaining basic things that we, today, genuinely do not appreciate in our day to day life. I believe that is what made the story special as it enabled the ability to truly feel how one would think if they lost all they had.


The literature was descriptive and included a substantial amount of setting and emotional detail, which made the story intense and intriguing. I would recommend this book to people who like to read on monsters and apocalyptic tales.
