Grunts by Mary Gentle

GruntsGrunts by Mary Gentle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I originally bought Grunts on hardback more years ago then I care to remember and like many a weighty tome it's not ideal for reading during a lunch break or commute so when I noticed Mary's work had been released on ebook I snapped up a copy of Grunts and settled in to once again enjoy the gut wrenching and blood spilling antics of the Orc Marines. As many a review will mention this is certainly not a book for youngsters, it's brutal in places but you'll find yourself grinning and laughing as you experience situations from the "bad" guys perspective and at least in this world so close to our own nothing is quite black and white. Highly recommended for anyone who may be jaded with the usual sword and sorcery epic or is looking to enjoy some dark humour which for all of it's in your face over the top action remains so recognisable.
