Publisher's Summary

The sequel to Off Season, arguably Jack Ketchum’s most famous novel about a historic family of cannibals off the coast of Maine. As suspenseful, fast-paced and intelligently written as the prequel, it was adapted into a movie of the same name.

This and Richard Layman's The Woods Are Dark were published in 1981. I don't know which was written first. Ketchum mentions THE WOODS ARE DARK several times. Unfortunately both THE WOODS ARE DARK and Off Season are better books. This is still readable, but Ketchum may have ruined it by trying to make it more main stream. There are plenty of gore scenes, but it also gets bogged down with an attempt at character development.

I have to agree with another reviewer that this is basically book one, rewritten. There are no new revelations. We don't learn how this family got this way or how long they have been this way, if they are a one and only or are there more? I am going to go on to the third book, The Woman, because it is Jack Ketchum.

The book is dated.

Excellent 2nd installment of this twisted tale!

Right from the start you find yourself cast into the fire. Character development comes later, let's get down to action.

The story is great and can stand on its own, so feel free to read the books out of order. Having read them, it seems the proper order is "Off Season", "Offspring" and "The Woman".

Hannah Kane did a fantastic job of Acting out these interesting and terrifying characters.

This book was just not long enough,but it was brilliant Jack Ketchum never lets you down.
The only thing i wish i had of done was listen to Off season again before i listened to this book just to refresh my mind,its just as disturbing,gory,fast pacing,on the edge of your seat stuff.
Like Off season we so need a film Mr Ketchum please!!!!!!
