For lovers of The Strain trilogy and The Thing comes an unforgettable squeamish tale!
"Iain Rob Wright scares the hell out of me!" (J.A. Konrath)
An ancient land hides a new threat….
The Scottish Highlands; a sparse, mountainous region some say was carved by the gods themselves. Few places are as untouched as this harsh, prehistoric landscape. It is no place for man.
But nestled deep within the wilderness lies a cottage, and behind that cottage is a hill....
When a group of friends travel up from Manchester and hire the cottage for a weekend of boozy fun, they discover a threat far greater than the harsh landscape and unwelcoming weather.
Something deadly lies upon the hill.
And it’s waiting.
If you love claustrophobic horror with a dashing of body-horror then The Spread will knock your socks off.

Weak story, terrible narration. The accents were toe curling. As we're the references to pop culture. Very predictable.

Interesting start to a strange story
This story had both a great well developed plot and well developed characters. Had a claustrophobic feeling that reminded me of a certain movie about people in the woods with cabin fever. I definitely felt isolated with the friends as they struggle to survive. Felt more so when they finally got back to civilization. The characters were interesting and were well developed enough to get you close to them. Lubey was the one I liked the most and really liked his story, despite the sadness around it. I felt like I was there with them celebrating the stag party and while they where obviously close at one time, they have clearly grown apart and have make for a turbulent ride. I really liked the plot. It was simple and very effective. I liked what was causing the problems. Haven't come across that yet and I think it will make for an interesting next couple of books. The descriptions of how it takes over and its texture really got under my skin. I freak out looking at spoiled food so the thought of that growing on me was really gross and absolutely horrific. If it was 4 legged spiders I might have been the first one of the group to call it quits Aubrey Parsons did a good job with the narration. I liked his character voices although it took me a bit to get used to the raspiness of Lubey's voice. Not sure if that was a reflection of his illness or just a product of his meekness. It was fitting for him but it wasn't the easiest to listen to, almost like fingernails on a chalkboard. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
