The Boy Who Kicked Pigs Now Available For Kindle!

Kindle-equipped Kasterborites rejoice! Tom Baker’s gruesome work of fantasy horror can now travel with you in your personal Kindle library!

Published back in 1999, The Boy Who Kicked Pigs is a darkly comic and by most account compelling read about a malicious young man out for revenge:

“Robert Caligari is a thoroughly evil thirteen-year-old who gets his kicks from kicking pigs. After a humiliating episode with a bacon butty, Robert realizes just how much he loathes the human race – and his revenge is truly terrible.”

Stunningly illustrated by David Roberts, Goodreads gives it a worthy 3.6/5 stars and enthusiastic reviews abound.

I have yet to enjoy Baker’s novel but the crossword-loving raconteur behind the most memorable of the Classic Doctors is sure to tell an engrossing tale!

You should be warned that The Boy Who Kicked Pigs – available for Kindle devices and Kindle mobile apps for just £3.71 – is apparently not for the faint hearted. Any recommendations, reviews or reflections?

    It is good but it really its just a very short story which would fit on a couple of pages without the illustrations.
