Excellent book!!! Although the concept of killer slugs is somewhat hard to grasp, "they are small and squirmy...how scary can they be", the actual book is excellent. Shaun Hutson is an excellent horror writer and if you've been reading the likes of Stephen King, James Herbert, and ... Read review

Excellent...better than his more famous rivals???

AdvantagesExcellently written and unputdownable!

DisadvantagesSome may find it a little too gory in places!

"...book!!! Although the concept of killer slugs is somewhat hard to grasp, "they are small and squirmy...how scary can they be", the actual book is excellent. Shaun Hutson is an excellent horror writer and if you've been reading the likes of Stephen King, James Herbert, and Dean Koontz, then you've missed one out and need to discover Shaun Hutson. His writing style is so much clearer than that of Stephen King for example who I sometimes ..." Read review

Total agreement- Ouch!

Advantagesummm... can't think of one

Disadvantagesplot, characters, location, 'realism'- or lack of

"I would feel better writing a review on the previous review, by RichardW, as it is much better written than Shaun Hutson's entire book. Indeed, the threat possibly to be posed by slowly crawling, slimy slugs, can't really be taken very seriously. In fact, in the book the threat is not even noticed by anyone of consequence, let alone taken seriously! People are dropping off, and getting chewed up, left, right, and centre, and it's all up to a local ..." Read review

Ouch. Ouch.

AdvantagesWhere? Oh all right, it's well written, for what it is...

DisadvantagesThe plot.

"...horror fans who love the Slugs sequence (there is actually, God help me, a sequel). I can't see it, though I gather Hutson was only 17 when he wrote this first novel, so that's remitting at least. Nevertheless, in good conscience, I cannot recommend this book. ..." Read review

It made me laugh anyway

AdvantagesOver the top gore, incredibly graphic detail,

Disadvantagesthe plot is inconceivable

"One female slug can lay one and a half million eggs a year – a fact which holds terrifying consequences for the people of Merton. As the town basks in the summer heat, a new breed of slug is growing and multiplying. In the waist-high grass, in the dank, dark cellars they are acquiring new tastes, new cravings. For blood. For flesh. HUMAN FLESH… Like a black wave they destroy every living thing in their path without discrimination. Who ..." Read review

similar by Price (5 GBP to 9 GBP)
Readable for a sequel
Medical terminology is inaccurate (*)
A different style to the usual fantasy fayre, intriguing characters over a majestic landscape.
Slow introduction means some perserverance is required. (*)
interesting, no-nonsense plot, fast action, clever ideas
bit schematic at times, with poorly executed "marriage crisis" subplot (*)
Continue on this infectious journey with the last gunslinger
None (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (S)
Usual horror and gore fest.
Not as easy to get into as other Hutson novels (*)
Fowler's best work, goes at a cracking pace
The weak ending (*)
Fast-paced, suspenseful, interesting plot
Certain lack of relatability (*)
Probably Dean Koontz best
Slow going in the middle (*)
Easily read short stories
A bit 'out there' (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (H)
Great story and lead character
Too many non-humans gets confusing (*)
Even more enjoyment from this superb author
Its over so quickly (*)
light and entertaining supernatural fantasy, excellent villains, brazen hero looking for action
Rachel's flightiness makes it difficult to stay focused sometimes (*)
Short novel, ideal for a first introduction to Herbert
None worth mentioning. (*)
It's not a bad book.
This book could have been so much better. There are angles which you want to explore but the book never gets there. (*)
