Ewwwwww! pretty much says it all.
The Troop was disgusting and freaky; however, there was some genuine horror, too. (The scene where Max goes back into the cave with the flare: eek!) I heard about the book after reading “11 Books That Will Definitely Disturb You,” and once I saw the big name blurbers on the front and back, I thought, what the hay, I’ll give it a go. An overall good time for this fan of the creepy crawlies.
[spoiler]If you enjoy TV shows like Animal Planet’s “Monsters Inside Me” and, whilst watching those TV shows, wonder what would happen if a mad scientist decided to play around with a parasite’s DNA, read this book.[/spoiler]
Disclaimer: Animal carnage, lots of it.
