The Hatching (The Hatching #1)The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Sometimes you want to read deep books with richly drawn characters that help us see the human condition differently.

And sometimes you just want to read something about carnivorous spiders eating everybody.

This book qualifies as the latter, but it could be stronger. It jumps point of view a lot and I really didn't find the characters that interesting. Their predicament is interesting, terrifying, in fact, and there are some good creepy moments although some are clearly borrowed from other, better books and films. Unfortunately, [spoiler alert] the book does not conclude as much as just stop. I do not know if I will read the sequel. A mixed bag for me.

[I received an advanced e-galley through Netgalley.]
