This is an ok yarn, basically a zombie story but replacing re-animated dead with spiders. Bit disappointed that it just stops, rather than concluding. It is obviously setting up a series. Reasonable listen nonetheless.
Gripping multi person POV sci-fi horror (esp for arachnophobes), already awaiting sequel! Great work
Narrator maybe a little too gentle for a thriller, but did well with multiple 'voices'
Reminiscent of Stephen King, Boone has a way of putting you right there in the midst of the action. This is a story that will remain with me but I fear that it is only the beginning of a much longer story. In which case, I look forward to the next instalment.
The performance was excellent (except for the pronunciation of a few Scottish/Gaelic names). Newbern has a voice well suited to narration and I hope that he performs the next episode.
My name is Freda and I am in my 60's. I was a graphic designer, now retired. My favourite books are supernatural horror (not short stories)
Quite scary, makes you itch and look round for spider webs. Well read and a good horror story especially if you don't like spiders.
The ending.How can it end like this!? Does the author know how much electric costs?If i don't sleep soon i'm going to start hallucinating and see spiders climbing the walls, scuttling across the floor, behind the curtains......(i just frightened myself again)
How the spiders traveled
Voices are ok, The women don't sound like squeaky toys
You crazy! Of course i wouldn't sit in a dark cinema with rows and rows of seats in the pitch dark with exits all the way in the back. I would Watch it at home with a cushion, rolled up news paper, lights on and a back up torch....and a flame thrower
I need to know more.
