When Nora and her team arrive at the island, she expects a routine zoological excursion...but it doesn't take her long to realize they're not alone. Are her lurid sexual dreams making her paranoid...or is she being watched? The dead bodies they find are bad enough, but then her own team members begin to disappear, and when they return, they've...changed. Indeed, there are other people on the island...along with something else far worse.

Finally - Edward Lee on Audible!
Good first effort into the Edward Lee world by Andy Mack. I've been searching for ANY Edward Lee books on audiobooks (they just don't seem to exist!), and luckily I found this gem. Ed is often over-the-top gross-out just to see how far he can push it, and almost always tells a good story to boot. Slither is actually a little more tame in this regard; I think it can and will appeal to a wider audience than some of Lee's more "extreme" efforts. Andy does a good job of narrating as well, with most of the voices close to what I imagined when reading it (Ruth's the only one I would tinker with slightly - she annoys the hell out of me, but then again... that's the character so it worked!).
Anyone who enjoys Lee's work should pick this one up, and there's also another in the works (Flesh Gothic, narrated by Mack as well) which I can't wait to pick up as well! For those uninitiated to Edward Lee, this might seem a little edgy, but that's a good thing and I hope this earns Ed some new fans. The only reason I didn't give fifth star is because I reserve those for something so amazing that even *I* was shocked at how well it came off - 4 stars for me is an excellent effort and worthy of a credit to anyone who likes this type of story (officially called "Splatterspunk" and/or "Bizarro").
Audible, if you're listening, DO MORE OF ED LEE'S WORKS! There's one title I've been searching in vain for - The Bighead - that was actually done in 2008 by Delirium Books for the now-defunct "Horror Mall," by Mark Justice (who still has the raw footage, hint hint!). I cannot locate this ANYWHERE, which in this digital age is ridiculous and slightly unbelievable. It'd be great if someone, such as Audible, would pay for a re-release!
