She didn t know how many of them there were, but they were frantic Dozens of them at least They d been packed in the egg, and they came out in a swarm, their bodies unfolding, alien and beautiful Big and fast, black apricots thundering against the glass Skittering.if you re looking to read a book about carnivorous spiders attacking humans and animals, this is one of them which is not meant to sound dismissive or deflecting, but this is one of those books that delivers exactly what it promises sp [...]

I ve always been afraid of spiders It probably doesn t help that when I was a kid, my older brother would make us sit in the baby pool while he threw daddy long legs on us Looking back now, not sure why I would obey such a stupid demand Yet it happened Daddy long legs are harmless, but you try being a little girl with that happening to you It is hard not to come out of the situation with a slight irrational fear because again.tally harmless The most that happened was they crawled on us of spider [...]
4.5 furious, furry, fantastic, frightening stars 2017 Honorable Mention ReadThis was a wild, fun and grotesque ride and I don t want it to stop so I put book 2 on my short list and hope to get to it by the end of the year Mr Boone is a master of intelligent, exciting and tight plot development Like a spider s web he is able to take a number of strands and weave them into a claustrophobic and horrific web Thousands of vicious, carnivorous spiders are wreaking chaos in China, India, California and [...]
OK this one is difficult I gave this book one star ONLY because I kept turning pages to see where it went I found it almost of a mystery than anything, I did not find it particularly horrific So the star is for engaging me enough to finish it.However I found the characters to be somewhat bland but worse were the completely sexist stereotypes of the women in this book At the beginning I was ready to applaud the author s courage in giving commanding roles to female characters, the President of th [...]
If you ve got Arachnophobia you might want to avoid this book at all costs Holy freaking scariest spiders doing horrific things Batman This book chilled me to the bone and it literally creeps up on you get it All around the world strange unexplained events are occurring and the rest of the world starts to take notice Sadly it s a bit too late for what is about to engulf the world En masse.This novel is just such a great read on so many levels, the plot rolls out gradually and by the time you ve [...]
MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List SOME SPOILERS FREAKING MAN EATING SPIDERS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Although, they would make a great aide in the prisons where the pedophiles and what not are, but I digress These are an ancient form of spiders from like 10,000 years ago Someone somewhere did some digging or something and here we have these spiders hatching I m not quite sure because they started coming out in all parts of the world and it didn t mention any kind of ancient mining or whateve [...]
Thanks, Netgalley, for satisfying my deep seated horror needs Need Survival Want Survival Wanna get in a lot of trouble with a ton of characters and wonder upon the wonders of how they re all gonna die Nom Nom Nom It s SPIDERS And not your normal kind, either These are a bit special, but not in the B Movie sense They re social, like ants, and they re specialized, and they re coming for you nom nom chitter chitter crackle crackle nom nom.This isn t just some simple cabin by the lake storytelling, [...]
In theory I d love to read this Buuuuuuuttttttt N.O.P.E.Stellar ratings from all of my fearless friends means it s probably pretty damn good, but this one most likely shall remain on my newly created I Am A Pussy bookshelf for eternity Kudos to the author for writing the one thing that might trigger me into the hospital with apoplexy.True story A week or so ago I went to put my shoe on and stepped on a rock It was hard, it was the size of a silver dollar and all 724 pounds of me hadn t even smoo [...]
My review of The Hatching is now up on Fresh Fiction They are coming This is one of the best horror books I have read this year However, if you have arachnophobia then you should perhaps not choose this book to read Read the whole review here
4.5 stars SPIDERS Lots of them If the little bit of webbing on the cover didn t register with you the word SPIDERS should.We ve all seen videos of spider nests suddenly exploding with little baby spiders running all over the place This book is NOTHING like that Picture a big, pulsing, hot to the touch egg sac erupting volcano like with big, hairy and fast spiders Are you shuddering yet Yeah, me too.The Hatching tells the story of an invasion of spiders From the rain forest in Peru to Georgia, fr [...]
Hands down this has to be one of the best books I ve read this year, if not the best I rated the book four instead of five stars, mainly because I have to wait until May next year to read the sequel Skitters and I m not happy about it.The characterization throughout the book was handled brilliantly, so that surprised me, even the people that ended up as spider fodder so you get to know quite a bit about them The part where one of the characters Melanie Guyer , is reminiscing about the time she w [...]
3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2016 07 21 I m not really afraid of spiders Yes, they re kinda icky, but unless I find one right in my personal space I tend to just leave the little crawlies be Like they say, most house spiders are relatively harmless and I actually like to keep them around to take care of other worst insect pests that might be lurking about.But the spiders in The Hatching, though NO Dear God, just NO In the reading of this book, I had to fight several urges no [...]
3.5 starsBuddy read with the SpecFic groupYou know, I ve never been afraid of spiders OK, I d be apprehensive at first depending on which species was walking up and down my arm, but it would be interesting as hell too I heard that a tarantula s legs feel like tiny suction cups squeals with delight And so many species are not just fascinating but beautiful too there are some not even birds of paradise and their shiny feathers can compete with Exhibit A, the Australian peacock spider yes, they com [...]
The Hatching was everything I love about disaster end of the world stories That rush of adrenaline you get when worrying over whether the human race will make it Asking myself what would I do Would I be among the few that would be lucky smart enough to survive I m that girl who loves the idea of beating zombies, tsunamis, earthquakes, deadly viruses, asteroids pretty much anything in which the earth will be doomed unless a small group prevails, and figures out how to save the human race In this [...]
This was pretty much everything I was looking for in a man eating spider novel Written in a semi World War Z style, but with depth, it covers a varied yet increasingly interconnected group of people facing the spider hatching It works because the author keeps the story grounded in reality That may seem like a strange thing to say, but it has high plausibility, both on the natural side and in human reactions These are not killer spiders from out of space, they don t build their own ships and fly [...]
She didn t know how many of them there were, but they were frantic Dozens of them at least They d been packed in the egg, and they came out in a swarm, their bodies unfolding, alien and beautiful Big and fast, black apricots thundering against the glass Skittering.She put her palm against the glass of the insectarium, and the spiders flew to it Professor Melanie Guyer has dreamed about being on the cover of Science or Nature Magazine When she gets a Fed Ex package from an archaeological dig in N [...]
See this review and others like it on bookbastion_______ You think because you kill one spider in your bathroom, that there aren t others hiding somewhere in your house What is it about spiders that strikes fear in so many people Is it the legs, or their hairy bodies, or their ability to attack with a sneaky drop shot from a hidden web in a corner or on a ceiling I think it s probably a bit of all of the above for me Ever since I was a kid and a large wolf spider ended up hitching a ride on my s [...]
This book is so creepy and disturbing The concept chills me to my very core I ll never look at spiders the same way again and I can t stop thinking about this book It was pretty slow and sometimes boring but I ended up reading this book in one sitting anyway I liked the writing style and I thought it was pretty interesting to read from many different characters perspectives.
One of the most horrifying books I ve read, I loved it Full review to come soon
I don t like shit crawling on me and this succeeded at the creep factor but the first half was particularly slow moving Overall, an average read The last few chapters were fun I should have just skimmed to that part.
This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life in Books.This was an excellent book I have had this book sitting on my kindle for the past year and a half and have no idea why I am just now reading it It really is as good as I heard Maybe better It was one of those books that I didn t want to set aside because I always wanted to know what was going to happen next I am just glad that I finally decided to read this book.This story was told a little differently Each chapter focuses on a diffe [...]

As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek thetattooedbookgeek.wordpressI received a free copy of this book courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Do you often read books that contain elaborate stories full of interconnecting and interweaving threads, sort of like a spider s web if you will, a veritable tapestry of important goings on and strands to keep up with and follow Do you often get bogged down in the layers of characterisation and develo [...]
This review was done by KissinBlueKarenWow I finished reading this book in record time The main reason is because I couldn t put it down There was no safe place to stop reading This story starts right off with tense scenes and gives us loads of characters to follow as the shit hits the fan.This story unfolds like great fiction We follow an FBI agent, a scientist, a couple of preppers, and a few marines, as scary things start happening throughout the world First, a nuclear bomb is dropped by Chin [...]
THE HATCHING is the first novel I ve read from author Ezekiel Boone, and this one had me quite literally at the edge of my seat while I read The story originates in Peru, and in India, where Dr Basu notices irregularities showing up on the readings from her earthquake lab The first clue that the United States has that anything is amiss in the world, is when China accidentally detonates a nuclear bomb on its own soil.Boone makes use of a large cast of diverse main characters to effectively showca [...]
This book with its multiple narratives and various locations spin the tale of a scary spider invasion across the globe A start of a well written series, that is realistic and scientific at the same time The only short coming I found is that some characters were flat and one dimensional There are many characters in the book and I would like to see of Melanie and President Pilgrim, along with FBI agent Mike Rich The horror is not in the idea, but in the way it s presented The premise of that has [...]
Was f r ein gro er gro er Unsinn dieses Buch doch ist Klar, irgendwo ist es unterhaltsam, temporeich und actiongeladen aber ich habe trotzdem mehr als einen Monat daran gelesen, weil ich es einfach nicht ernst nehmen konnte Trash in Reinform Sharknado als Buchversion.
Sendo muito sincero, eu achei a leitura muito divertida, POR M preciso deixar algumas ressalvas pra galera que n o leu e que pode se animar com essa minha primeira frase 1 se voc tem problemas com aranhas, JAMAIS cogite pegar nesse livro, porque at eu que nunca tive muitas quest es com aranha fiquei muito angustiado e tenso de encontrar uma real em casa2 as cenas de sangue s o bem gr ficas Muitos detalhes de mortes, ferimentos, etc 3 o livro apresenta uma quantidade infinita de personagens e as [...]
Review THE HATCHING by Ezekiel BooneEzekiel Boone rocks If you prefer your thrillers roller coaster paced, heart in mouth, rendering you breathless from first page to last, THE HATCHING is your novel I was blown away the writing is so good, and I befriended the characters I just have to deliver one caution if severe arachnophobia is yourte noir, you will find THE HATCHING very, very INTENSE.
