The Hatching | Ezekiel Boone | a review

Deep in the jungle of Peru, where so much remains unknown, a black, skittering mass devours an American tourist whole. Thousands of miles away, an FBI agent investigates a fatal plane crash in Minneapolis and makes a gruesome discovery. Unusual seismic patterns register in a Kanpur, India earthquake lab, confounding the scientists there.As these incidents begin to sweep the globe, a mysterious package from South America arrives at a Washington, D.C. laboratory. Something wants out.




Besides all that, this book kept me reading and that is something, I am the type of reader, that if I do not like what I am reading, I will stop and go onto something else, I am not scared of the DNF letters, there are plenty of books out there, why waste time on reading something you are not enjoying!

Well, that aside, Mr Boone, wrote a book that got me out of a spiralling book slump so thank you for that.

I was on the search for something different to read, sometimes I do get stuck in a rut, reading the same type of books over and over again, so I got a sample of this for my Kindle and after that decided to get and read the full book.


The book is formatted in a way, that you have general storyline, but in each chapter you read about different charecters and situations that are part of the aforementioned main plot.

At first, I thought that there were too many sub plots and charecters, but as you read into this novel and start to invest yourself into the book, I did not find it a problem, as it was easy to keep up with them all.

As the blurb describes, this is all about ten thousand year old spiders that skitter or shall I say SWARM over everything that they come in contact with, you are ‘treated’ to quite grisly text when the author goes into descriptive mode and expalins the actions of these blood thirsty Arachnoids.


I was waiting for an appointment at the time and I remember saying ‘ewwwww’ quite loudly when I came to this bit and subconsciuosly checking my own nose

I liked this writing style, it read well with me, his story and charecter building, seems effortless and believable.

I was going to link some creepy AF gif, but seriously man, looking through those was just a step too far!

This book did not make me itch when reading, but I do make sure I check my bedroom ceiling before getting in!
