*Both an Audio and Physical Book Review!
Since the day I spotted this ARC on a fellow IG's account, I knew I had to have this story! I pre-ordered both the audiobook and novel (sadly I missed out on the totally awesome book sleeve for the ARC's that had been previously released) and waited. Until July 5th! The audiobook was released and I pounced with the intensity of a mountain lion- not a house cat. From there on, I cringed, wriggled and writhed from the story.
Nothing's more horrific that a story like this...
I found great appreciation in the writing style of The Hatching, by Ezekiel Boone. It was like reading/listening to a movie with giving the main characters their bit of the story, then switching to an incident somewhere in the world. It lent realism and dimension. There were layers of activity, even to people unknown or minor, that kept the story flowing. I also liked the idea of strong women. There was a Madame President of the US, a divorced entomologist who was considered THE specialist, and a military leader who was respected by her male peers. It's nice to see. FBI Agent Rich was actually the frayed ending. Strong but frayed. Okay, so what was the story about?
It was about nature making a comeback. It was about hunger and it was about them wanting out! All around the world, strange events were taking place. A black wave rolled over land and sea, leaving nothing in its wake. Well, actually it did, but I can't tell. SPOILERS and all... 📚
