    One thought on “pig”

    1. I was asked to read and review this book and in return, simply give my honest opinion, good or bad. Here it is: "Pig" by SBR Martin is the first book in a very long time to leave me at a loss for words. A loss for words that can adequately give this book the justice it so rightfully deserves. "Good" or "Great" would be redundant. "Amazing!" doesn't even begin to cover it. For once, this reviewer is truly at a loss for words, but I will do my best to make everyone who reads this understand how in [...]

    2. ‘Pig’, by Sbr Martin, is told from the point-of-view of Lilly, a woman who, after numerous dates with various men, settles on seemingly the most courteous. ‘Bender’, however, turns out to be far from benign, and Lilly ends up in an abusive marriage where life passes by with only one brief opportunity of escape, with her husband’s bandmate.What could have been an unrelievedly depressing book, is instead raised to the height of art through the spiralling structure of its narration, the p [...]

    3. Lilith's plight in life was plotted out for her from the day she was born. Her name alone, provided by her teen mother's lesbian partner, evoked in her the ability to be a non-conformist in a man's world. Whether by knowledge or nature Lilly embraced her heritage and took from men just as men took from women.When Ben entered her life she learned too late what is was that made him so different and by the time the discovery was made it was too late. Martin's novel of life takes us down the road of [...]

    4. Pig blew me away. I don't normally read adult literature but the characters in SBR Martin's story are relatable and the viewpoints, gritty.Some things come at you, shocking you to the very core. I would cringe, but still read. My head shook more than I think it ever has, but still I pressed on with a slight need to know what else could possible go wrong for this one or that one. The grit was even more so than a Piccoult novel (which I do enjoy-an exception, to my non-adult book rule!)SBR Martin' [...]

    5. Pig is told from Lily’s memories as she sees familiar people at the funeral parlor. Lily tells of growing up adopted by her grandmother and her strict upbringing. Her wild days after high school and meeting Bender are stories she tells. Lily’s marriage to Bender leads to a life of domestic abuse, sex, alcohol, and children all ending in a funeral.Lily captured my attention and heart. She brought to me a life that I cannot ever imagine having to live. From being left by her mother with her gr [...]

    6. Author: SBR MartinPublished By: The Artist's Orchard LLCAge Recommend: AdultReviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating:5Review:"Pig" by SBR Martin was truly one real that I will never forget. When I started reading this read I could not imagine what this was all about but I soon found out was some excellent story telling that I couldn't put it down. How this author Ms. Martin was able to deliver a story like this one was truly off the chart good. It was truly amazing in how this author created such a stor [...]

    7. 4.5 Stars‘Pig’ is an interesting, if disturbing recount of ‘Lily’s’ life with her abusive husband. Told from memories triggered by people offering condolences at the viewing of her husbands coffin. We learn how off balance ‘Bender’ was in life and how a seemingly ‘normal’ woman chose to stay in such an unstable relationship even when she had at one point been given a way out.I have never read a story quite like this before, it is totally unique in the way it has been written, a [...]
