The Grinding - Matt Dinniman

My review:
The Grinding is a book unlike any book I have read before. It definitely came from someone who has a very descriptive and vivid imagination. It's not your typical monster book where you can predict the ending. The Grinding pulls on your own imagination and it leaves you turning the pages so quickly because you can't seem to get enough. Nif's story has so many twist and turns you could become dizzy trying to keep up with it all. The love that Adam has for Nif is so appealing. Their story can be heart breaking at times and then it's comical. This book is not the normal genre that I tend to stick to but I was pleasantly surprised at how well I liked it.

Six months ago, the world watched in horror as we lost an American city.

The Grinder. That's what the survivors of Tucson called the monster. Just one touch, and they became a part of it. It used their bodies as limbs and as weapons. In just a matter of hours, it became huge, a towering monstrosity made entirely out of tens of thousands of people and animals.

This isn’t behind-the-scenes bullshit from the point of view of the military. This isn’t yet another conspiracy theory about what really happened to Air Force One that night, or about the decision to nuke Tucson.

This is a rare, eyewitness account from someone who was there, in the midst of the destruction. But most importantly, this is the terrifying truth.
