You should avoid this read/listen if you are at all squeamish about bugs. And if you think you are not squeamish, you will be. It starts with a slight itch on the arm, a light tingling on your leg that won’t go away. A fly maybe? Or the beginning of a mosquito bite? Water in the ear? That’s a really funny looking black hair in your nose… Why is it moving? By the time you actually see what it is, it’s too late. These are more than just insects. This is an engaging horror story about an infestation like none other and the beginning of the end in one small town. Over all the story is good but it does get a bit “sloppy” at times with repeated sentences and other minor boo-boos an editor should have caught. Also, there were a couple of coincidences that were a little hard to believe. Bottom line: Hatched is enjoyable escape listening with likeable characters. Note: this is the first of a series so not all loose ends are tied up.

Ziggy Stardust ain't got nothing on this tale. This story should really be a page from the great 90's RPG All Flesh Must be Eaten. That game took and added zombied to different genres. It also came up with some brilliant alternate reasons for zombies to have come about, and this book adds Arachnaphobia with All Flesh. It works on a lot of different levels, and the creep factor really digs deep under your skin. If you have an aversion to creepy crawlies then this book isn't for you. You won't be able to sleep afterward; just because of the thoughts it will implant in your head.
If I had my guess, this would be the start of a series, or at least a part of a series of books, just because somethings aren't tied up so neatly as you'd expect and if that is the case I am excited, because this was a great story.
Marlar does a great job with the narration. There are a lot of characters in this story, and he doesn't make you guess which is in the lead at the time. He is easy to follow and he keeps your attention.
Fans of zombies, voodoo, and arachnids will really enjoy this book, but then so will any horror junkie.
