Book Review: Egg: A Short Story by Victory Ross

Egg: A Short Story
by Victory Ross
October 31st, 2020
Genre: Short Story/ Horror
“Miracle baby” Nakoa Jamar discovers a mosquito bite in the center of his chest on his 12th birthday, which rapidly grows into a Siamese twin. The older Nakoa gets, the more terrorizing his twin brother, Marcus, becomes. Distressed by the changes in their family and unable to bear another scandal incited by Marcus, The Taylors, Nakoa’s parents, research doctors to separate the twins after the boys nearly destroy each other in a merciless fight. The problem is the boys are conjoined at the heart. Separation will kill them both.

Using horror, fertility issues, and Yin and Yang symbolism as the backdrop, Egg contemplates what it means for light and darkness to manifest in the body. Egg explores the limits of love and the limits of hatred while speaking to the ability we have as human beings—the ability to choose.

Egg: A Short Story takes you quickly through the life of Nakoa Jamar. Each chapter is a skip to a milestone of his life, from his birth to his 25 birthday giving the reader snapshots of his life. 

The writing is clunky and all telling, but it's a good premise for a story with psychological and body horror.
