Email feedback on EATEN:

A fellow blogger:

I want you to know that I have now read the whole thing! And it was a fabulous (and super-scary) read – particularly for one who is not inclined to select “blood and gore” as choice reading material.


A sensitive colleague, after reading Chapter 1 preview:

Oh my GOD. I can’t read anymore! And I don’t want to remember what I just read either. Very effective writing.


Reader just getting into the book:

I had my first polar bear nightmare – left the [bedroom] door open for the cats and guess who arrived?

The bear from your cover – actually sat up in bed and screamed!


A colleague who is a respected ecologist/evolutionary biologist (Christmas Day 2015):

My dear Susan, your book “Eaten” is EXCELLENT! I never dreamt that you had such a gift as a spellbinding novelist. I could not put that book down, and read it in two sittings. No Agatha Christie ever tied me down that long. And your thesis is – alas – probable. I am in awe and admiration!

I kid you not, that novel of yours was a wonderful surprise. Not every good story teller is good a novelist, and you are both. Your characters were real and the suspense was great. Bravo.

Thought-provoking, and possibly a real service to polar bear conservation
