Introduction I’ve read several of Shaun Hutson’s other books and have found them to be shocking, gruesome graphic and chilling. This book, Slugs, was only shocking in the fact that when compared to his usual high standard it falls embarrassingly short. Let me introduce you to the plot…. The Plot...

ProExcellently written and unputdownable!

ConsSome may find it a little too gory in places!

Consthe 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...
