    1. really it should say "Meathouse Man by Raya Golden (adapted from a short story by George R.R. Martin)" because this is all Raya Golden all the time. adapted by, art by, cover design by Raya Golden. who is this Raya Golden? I dunno, and I'm not sure I care to learn moreme striking panels, particularly in a gladiator battle featuring a morning star. but mainly the art is vivid but technically clunky. terrible job on the faces: the protagonist looks completely different panel-by-panel. the cover ma [...]


    2. This is some fucked up shit. Misogynistic and necrophilic fucked up shit. With illustrations. My inner feminist is vibrating with rage and is drawing disturbing comparisons with serial killer Elliot Rodger. The meathouse is a whorehouse whose 'whores' are dead women, most of whom are former criminals and debtors although some have been kidnapped and killed precisely to be commodified by transforming them into brainless undead prostitutes. Outside of the meathouses, corpses are used as workers di [...]



    3. Can I give this negative stars? Because I really want to. Page one, some dude bangs a dead hooker, from there one out it's this "deep" story about one man's search for true love in a world where his only satisfaction or success comes from the corpses he manipulates. Gross. Just, like, super gross. I feel dirty having read it. Obviously this does not get my vote for a Hugo.


    4. First time reading Martin. Probably won't get round to Game of Thrones until another forty years or so cause I'm a hipster like that. This story was pretty good though. Kind of gross but well worth the read. Obviously, as it states in the beginning, he was brokenhearted when he wrote it: "Of all the bright cruel lies they tell you, the cruelest is the one called love".



    5. I loved this comic-book! It captured the essence of the story perfectly. However, if you haven't read George R.R. Martin's original story, you most likely won't appreciate the comic. It is VERY graphic. Get prepared for George R.R. Martin's dark, twisted side.


    6. No sé, me he quedado un poco fría con esta historia, larga y corta a la vez, como si le faltara por un lado y le sobrara por el otro.Desde luego, no tiene nada que ver con JDT ni con otras historias que he leído suyas. Esta es de ciencia ficción pura y dura, con enormes ecos de Card y su saga de Ender.En fina, que no sé qué decir porque me ha chafado un poco y no he conseguido emocionarme ni empatizar con nada de la historia y el final me ha resultado de lo más tonto aunque vaya con moral [...]


    7. For a book I had to wait more than a year to get, George R.R. Martin's Meathouse Man was very underwhelming.The reviews that didn't describe it as 'vulgar' or 'explicit', described it as 'a gore-filled tale of sex and lust'.Yeah, no.It's pretty much just this lonely guy who goes to a dead-woman-whore house and decides, then and there, he'll find love.So, he gets his heart broken by two girls, one of whom he doesn't even get to sleep with, and goes back to 'the meathouse'.I won't spoil the ending [...]


    8. I read this as part of my Hugo Award reading, it was part of the Hugo voting package. I do not think I would have ever picked it up otherwise. Gritty dystopian fiction, not my cup of tea.I will say up front, I did not like it – at all! I really tried to give it a chance, but it creeped me out – and not in a good way.The protagonist is a very hopeful young man, who likes to have sex with animated corpes. Great right! The story is about him seeking a normal relationship with a live women, and [...]


    9. I haven't read George R.R. Martin's short story, so I'm not sure if the mediocrity of the writing is due to the source material, or the adaptation. I honestly think that this could've been an interesting, high concept story if the ideas, and more importantly, the characters were fleshed out. However, the language is clunky, and I couldn't sympathize at all with the main character, even though the theme of searching for love and meaningful relationships in a f*cked up universe (expletive because [...]


    10. Wow a lot of people calling this book misogynistic. I feel like those people either don't know what misogyny is or missed the point of the book entirely. The message of the book isn't any sort of message against women. It is trying to speak against the concept of "finding your one true love" and saying that life isn't fair. It's not too deep in my opinion, but it definitely isn't a hateful message. Also, I just want to point out that just because a story depicts a bad world, a world where what i [...]


    11. This is a short but dense graphic (in both senses of the word) retelling of a George R.R. Martin short story. A dark parable about the lie of love, it uses Trager, a fresh young corpse-driver (controlling brainless bodies to do tasks) to explore various aspects of love as he grows. There are some meaty parallels and intimations, and the artwork here is amazing (the cityscapes especially), although it is definitely not suitable for younger audiences (who won't get the point anyway). As much as it [...]


    12. Dark, edgy, gritty. Not the best story telling here, despite a few good lines and artistic spectacle. The Necrophilia won't find a home in the hearts of the faint hearted, nor the misogyny. The only plus, is its a short read, it whittled away a few minutes or thirty. Recommended for anyone with an open mind.


    13. (2014 Hugo Nominee-Graphic Novel)Not bad. A cool world concept from GRRM, the story ends on a different depressing note than the one I predicted for it--the main character arrives at a personal rather than institutional despair.This one also contains explicit content.



    14. "Meathouse Man" is perhaps one of George RR Martin's darkest works. It is the story of a corpse-handler who becomes obsessed with using corpse prostitutes as he becomes disenchanted with romantic love. This seems to be one of the most personal works George has published, as he himself became disenchanted with love after having multiple failed relationships. It was a difficult and shocking read at first, however, I recommend it as one of George RR Martin's best works.



    15. Excelente relato. Muy cortito, unas 40 páginas en versión Epub. Se trata de una historia de venganza como nunca antes había leído.


    16. This is a comic adaptation of one of Martin's most infamous stories, a raw and sad tale of a man who fails at love and chooses ease. I have seen some negative reviews based on the material and the lack of character "growth." That is not what Martin is doing here. This is a tale of decline and defeat, where our hero never overcomes his failures. It is a chilling story and that is why it is unpopular with many. That and all the necrophilia. The art in this book is serviceable.


    17. The second page of the story elicited an oral, "Whaaaaaaaaaaa.?!" Page 5-ish made one of the most disturbing paraphilias a little less repugnant, at least for the purposes of this story; if you're tempted to put it down after page 2, if you like the genre try just a couple more pages. (This is not to say that the story was not disturbing or somehow all right or acceptable in any healthy person's view.) Keyword is story, follow that up with fictitious, and a very dark view of a dystopian future ( [...]


    18. I read this story because it was nominated for the Hugo Award. I'm a fan of Martin, but I have not read the short story on which this graphic adaptation is based. It was originally intended for Harlan Ellison’s never publishedThe Last Dangerous Visions, and was then rewritten for Orbit 18 (1976) edited by Damon Knight. If this graphic adaptation is true to Martin's story, it is very much the kind of science fiction that was popular in the 1970s, with lots of sex and violence leading to a somew [...]


    19. Read for the 2014 HugosThis graphic novel is dark, depressing and has very few redeeming qualities. I liked the way backgrounds and big, scene-setting panels were drawn, but I didn't like the way people were drawn. They all sort of looked the same (particularly the women). Maybe that was the point, but it didn't work for me.Honestly, I don't think telling this story in comic form added anything to it. I think it would have been more affecting and powerful (not fun or nice, but powerful) in prose [...]


    20. Cruel and gritty story of a man trying to become Alive amidst the world full of corpses. Literally. If you are looking for a classy story of "love saves all" - definitely don't read it as this one might produce results far from expected and push you down to the bottom, instead of making you climb up the ladder of a path called Life and Love. It should be used as an example of never giving up on believing, even after the hardest of blows and betrayals by the ones you loved, or thought you loved. [...]


    21. I saw no reason for the zombie theme in this story, other than for shock value. I suppose some people like that sort of thing—I don't. The "horror" bit forced into a very sad and personal story is distracting. Martin's meat puppet idea is somewhat interesting, but his execution of the idea is disappointing. Basically, what I am trying to say is that this should have been split into two stories, one I would have enjoyed reading and one I would not have liked at all, but each could have been muc [...]


    22. Sometimes certain books are difficult to score because they shock you in some way or make you feel uncomfortable. If that is what the author intended then I think you need to score those books accordingly (if they have been successful) even if you could never claim to have enjoyed the experience. This is not one of those books. Perhaps when GRRM wrote the prose story it had enough shock value to make it a memorable story. Reading it in 2014 I was bored. If it wasn't GRRM's name on the cover I do [...]


    23. Oh boy. This is the comic version (a recent one) of a nearly forty year old short story, and boy does it show. Problem #1: it isn't really a comic; it is more like an illustrated story. Remove the pictures and you barely lose anything. Also, these are not the best drawings.Problem #2: this is one of those Twilight Zone-like stories, and when done badly you can see what the ending will be quite fast. Like here: there's a shocking concept which then gets even more shocking, and then there's a pred [...]


    24. This was a great read. It captivated me during the short amount of time it took for me to fly through it. It is quite a new idea. The story is a little - quite frankly - fudged up, but I enjoyed it none the less. It squeezed in love, betrayal, drama, and completely new worlds within less than 20 pages. The art was wonderful and unique, too. If you like Martin and are over the age of 18, I would totally recommend it.


    25. Erm I wanted to read this because the sinopsis was "interesting", but then i started reading and it was not what i expected is a story about love, about a lonely guy with a hunger and need for someone special, that obsesion for warm and romance(view spoiler)[I find the plot somehow depresing, a reminder about that people are mostly fake and superficial, specially when it comes to relationships. (hide spoiler)]I think it haved some potential, but it didnt developed to achieve that milestone D:


    26. I received this as a First Reads giveaway. I have yet to read anything by George R.R. Martin that I don't like. I'm going to have to get my hands on the short story to compare it to this comic adaptation. The quest to find our love is something everyone goes through and most people meet heartache as many times (or more) as the main character. This was an intriguing take on the journey for true love.
