I do like how the story was told from both sides though, following a person on either side of the infection fight. I don't think the story would have made a good full length novel but it was a decent novella since it wasn't a huge time investment. The imagery in this story is great, thanks to the descriptive prose of the author.
Not a style I would normally equate with a seemingly fast paced apocalypse novel, but he makes it work rather well. On one hand, the ending was rather predictable, at least in regards to the final outcome. But how it all played out was rather unexpected and surprising. I'm not sure what I think about the title. I see how it applies, but it doesn't catch my interest and try to draw me into exploring the book.
If I hadn't been invited to read this story, I doubt it would have caught my attention as I searched for a new read online. View 1 comment.

This is a very well written novella about warring humans in a post-apocalyptic world, where one side serve as incubators to a blistering and deadly infection and the other is not. The novella is told from two perspectives one from each side and Rose has done a very good job in portraying revulsion and sympathy for both sides though I sympathise with one group more than the other. I don't know if a sequel is in the pipeline, or if Rose will ever venture into this world again, but I hope he does as I very much enjoyed this and there is plenty of scope for him to explore further.

The infected live in tribes in the woods, not in walled houses and they hate A novella length book about 2 warring factions of humans in a not too distant. The infected live in tribes in the woods, not in walled houses and they hate and fear the Sweepers who bring death to them. The animosity between these two people is tense and the story is told from both viewpoints. It seems that there might be a form of peace, then a horrific act ends that. There are chapters that give a history of what's happened in a sort of mythological way.
The title was a bit confusing to me, but by the end, it made more sense. I liked the characters and the way the story ends. It's well written and paced well. The story is brutal, violent, and pulls no punches, so if you like your stories that way, check it out. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 3. In this post-apocalyptic setting there are really only the two factions - those infected with the Gabriel Virus, referred to as "Spewers" because of the way their sores tend to eject pus, infecting others, and there are those who have not been infected by the Spewers, the Clear-Skins.
Tanner and his kind have completely de-humanized th This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Tanner and his kind have completely de-humanized the Spewers as nothing more than animals who are a danger to the rest of humanity and therefore must be destroyed. But Tanner is captured by a band of Spewers and taken back to their settlement. While it is clear that the Spewers fear and hate the Sweepers because of the destruction they bring, Tanner comes to a very difficult realization Even though the Spewers live in the woods, they still live in communities and band together the way the Clear-Skin do, and they treat one another with respect.
In fact, the Spewers may behave more humanly than do the clear-skins! This is a short book, a novella, and author William Todd Rose keeps the action moving swiftly. The story is told from alternating viewpoints, which also moved the story along nicely.
Apocalyptic Organ Grinder by William Todd Rose
The book does seem to lead us into a place of recognition and redemption, but given the title - which may seem a little strange until you read the book - it shouldn't be a surprise that this story is about the worst of humanity and not the best. I really like the idea of big publishers putting out shorter works as ebooks - as long as they are priced appropriately. It gives the reader a chance to sample more authors without committing either money or time in long books, trilogies, or series' now.
The ebook format is perfect for this. I do recall, during my various days working in book stores, that publishers have periodically published novellas as paperback books, but it never quite caught on. Looking for a good book? Apocalyptic Organ Grinder , by William Todd Rose, is a dark, graphic novella of how humanity has lost its compassion. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

Poorly written tripe. Oct 16, Vincenzo Bilof rated it it was amazing. After finishing this amazing work of art from William Todd Rose, I'm still reeling from the maddening conclusion. A work of speculative-fiction, Apocalyptic Organ Grinder has less to do with the apocalypse than it does with the human species and our monstrous ability to classify and subdivide groups of people until we can create an acceptable standard.

If written in the s or '60s, this book would have been hailed as a masterpiece: pitting two different variations of the human species--one infected with a world-ending, flesh scarring virus, and the other the pure-skinned standard--this book makes you choose a side, and it's a choice you don't want to make.
