My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A second abstract visit to the town of [undisclosed] and its’ inter-dimensional nightmare creature inhabitants. Once again narrated primarily by the protagonist (and Author) David Wong, and his best friend John; two losers who unwittingly find themselves at the centre of the apocalypse. Again.
As to the title? Well, I’d say that’s pretty self-explanatory. This book is full of spiders. Lots and lots of spiders. Evil (and invisible to most), parasitic, mania-inducing, extremely difficult to kill, “zombifying”, creep-you-out-forever, SPIDERS… *shudders*
Seriously dude. Don’t touch it.
Unless you’re like me and can’t help yourself!
Written in the first person, and as though these events were somehow true (they might be, you never know!), we follow David and John as they simply try to stay alive, to track down David’s girlfriend Amy/Amy to track down David, and maybe find a way to save the town and the world. It’s wacky, cringe-worthy, and like a “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” for Horror fans. It’s linked to just enough real-world oddities to make you think that maybe there’s something more out there..
Excuse me, I think I just felt something move against my leg…
