Uh… Hey All!
Yup, that is the tittle, though I guess there is an alternate called Grubs? Not too sure why it has multiple names… Prepare to be amazed! And disgusted! And yeah…
Title: Nasty Little F!#*ers (Grubs)
Author: David McAfee
Synopsis: DEEP IN THE WOODS OF NORTHERN MAINE
Eight scientists and one ex-marine accept an assignment to study the effects of deforestation in Aroostook County. It’s a routine job, and everything seems to be going according to plan. But when one of their number goes missing, leaving behind only a severed foot as evidence, former lieutenant Colby Phillips must lead an expedition to find him.
A HORROR UNKNOWN TO MAN
What they find instead is an entirely new species. A large breed of insect whose ravenous larvae display features and abilities never before seen in nature. The scientists’ amazement turns to fear when they find themselves at the bottom of the food chain. Can Colby lead the survivors to safety? Or is it already too late?
My Thoughts: I nearly put this book down. I hate maggots/worms/grubs/etc. They make me ill to imagine, much less read about. And it takes a good third of the book to get away from being told how these little buggers are chewing stuff, or popping out of somewhere, or doing who knows what else. Overall, I did enjoy it, but you have to have a strong stomach for that first third. I did figure out the twist before the end, I’m so proud of myself! Look at me mom! I’m smarts!! And while the characters were flawed and interesting, I could have done without the creeper masturbating/trying to rape the only female scientist, and I could have really done without getting inside his head and his sick thoughts. Maybe I am rating this book too high… It was interesting. And I am going to try more by this author but… If you don’t like bugs/gore/adult themes then I suggest you move on…
