A Puppet Scorned by Jamie Kort

Book #15

A Puppet Scorned A Puppet Scorned by Jamie Kort
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Self, what I really want to read is a slightly erotic/body horror/revenge porn. But make it sick puppets!”

Well, if by some weird twist of fate you have ever actually thought this, may I present @jamie_f_kort’s "A Puppet Scorned," a love story about Brad and Camille, sock puppets locked away in an old attic. After knitting a baby together, Brad is horrified by the unnatural creation and casts out Camille and their child. Scorned, Camille makes it her life's mission to regain Brad's love, by any means.

Yes, this is as batshit crazy as it sounds, and yet it somehow works. Despite the wackadoo premise of the story, I could imagine the horror that both Camille and Brad inflict on each other, and the visuals that Kort conjures are certainly horrific. This obviously isn't going to be for everyone, but if a little bizarro horror is your thing, and the idea that knitting needles somehow being erotic is ok with you, than you should check out this super quick read.
