Is cows a good book?
It’s a drawn out over the top ultimately boring read, it’s obvious the author only wanted to make a disturbing and shocking book for the sake of it. There are plenty of well written disturbing books with plot twists and character depth out there, Cows is not one of them. Don’t waste your money.
