?I would like to anesthetize myself and live without feeling anything. Act automatically: look, breathe and nothing else. See everything, know and not say, but the memories are there, are they still there?

This Saturday, Camila, from Camilasbooks, brings us a literary recommendation that you can't miss.

?Exquisite corpse? by the Argentine writer Agustina Bazterrica, is a novel that Camila describes as dystopian, and that focuses on a society where the consumption of human flesh has been legalized.

The novel, he says, presents a dystopian world where animals develop a lethal virus, for which they have to be slaughtered in their entirety and due to this and the lack of meat to be consumed, the government decides to legalize the breeding, slaughter and consumption of human flesh, "and this is where we enter a dark world, as well as raw."

Camila highlights that in this novel there are terrifying, disgusting and macabre scenarios, with a protagonist who works in a refrigerator and who takes readers on a dark journey full of portraits of the human flesh industry and how it is worked.

If you like dystopian novels and reading slightly macabre things, this novel is for you.

Would society really be able to achieve this? 

Don't miss the full Camilasbooks report, only on Peninsula 360 Press.

?Half res. Stunner. Sacrifice line. Sprinkler bath. Those words appear in his head and hit him. They destroy it. But they are not just words. They are the blood, the thick smell, the automation, the not thinking. They break in at night, when you are unprepared. He wakes up with a layer of sweat covering his body because he knows that another day of slaughtering humans awaits him?
