I received a free copy of The Hatching from the publisher in return for an honest review.
Why do I keep doing this to myself, I hate spiders! I swear the little furry creatures were coming out the woodwork to pounce on me the whole time I was reading this book! One actually landed on my daughter while I was reading nearby and she flew off the couch like her bahookie was on fire. You can imagine how on edge I was for the rest of the night lol.
The Hatching was a great read, it was also an extremely creepy and itchy read. The pacing kept me on the edge of my seat and the terror of the events occurring seeps into you. I could easily imagine the fear and destruction that was taking place. There are quite a few characters in this book as events take place all over the world but despite the many different characters, each is very well written and fleshed out and relatable in their own way.
Spiders have been done many times in horror but The Hatching is one that stands out amongst all the others. These spiders feel real, the threat seems plausible and that just makes it all the more scary to read. I could feel those hairy little legs scuttling over my skin the whole time I was reading.
Definitely one I would recommend, it was everything I was hoping for and more.
Man eating spiders who think and move like a hive, out thinking and out smarting their prey.
There's no escape.
