Fun and pacey and full of gore.
Ezekiel Boone writes with the power and pace of a Hollywood blockbuster
Why are humans afraid of spiders? With a multi-stranded narrative that traps you as effectively as a silken web, Skitter makes the answer all too clear.
Smart writing underpins the terror in this second instalment in a continuing series, which is sufficiently selfcontained to be highly enjoyable even for those who missed the first episode.
If The Hatching was a summer blockbuster then Skitter is its tense, page turning counterpart setting the tone for a brutal, all out apocalyptic conclusion.
