Once every year, Scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a weekend camping trip. This year, something is waiting in the darkness. Something wicked.... An intruder stumbles upon their campsite like a wild animal. He is shockingly thin, disturbingly pale, and voraciously hungry. Within his body is a bioengineered nightmare, a horror that spreads faster than fear. One by one, the boys will do things no person could ever imagine....… (mer)

Its not as great as Stephen King's blurb would have you believe and it won't scare the hell out of you. It does have a certain sinking ick factor that sticks in your gut. The book doesn't run overly long and the story behind the scenes, told in articles and interviews is an interesting throwback touch to King's own style. ( )

A very well-written, meticulously detailed take on "The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out..."
This is just the sort of horror novel that terrifies me: plausible horror.
Although I enjoy well-written supernatural horror, I always feel detached from the terror of it since I don't believe in the supernatural.
This novel piles plausible horror upon horror.
Terrifying parasites that hijack brain function are real.
Unethical ambitious greedy scientists are real.
Military-enforced quarantine is real.
Psychopathology and sociopathology are real.
Genetic manipulation experimentation is real.
I read this book as a hyperbolic-for-effect microcosm of the real world in which we live as a community of purposeful, feeling, caring, thinking, ultimately isolated individuals in a vast and predominantly purposeless, unfeeling, uncaring, thoughtless Universe.
Scary stuff indeed. ( )

Although this horror novel wasn't as creepy as I typically expect from the genre, it had some truly grotesque imagery. ( )

I got through it and never got scared. Nick Cutter has an active imagination and is a very descriptive writer. The book was good in that respect, but was more gross than scary. The idea of worms eating you alive from the inside out is repulsive and, if that's the kind of story you like, this is definitely a story you should read. I didn't really enjoy the very detailed descriptions of these boys killing animals either. Just plain gross! ( )

I would have finished this book sooner had time allowed; I didn’t want to put it down. At first, I wasn’t sure of the narrative. Being that the plot involved teenage boys, much of the tone expressed that initially, but then as things progressed so did the style grow more lyrical and tighter, edging along the sense of well-constructed doom. Scary? Yes, owing to the subject alone, the sense that one day this or similar could happen under humankind’s egotistical restructuring of the natural world. This is an amazing book. I’ve seen negative reviews and understand the dislike of animal abuse portrayed, but sometimes it’s necessary to reflect reality. Even then the story is painfully sad, making the reader feel for these boys. Other negatives, I don’t understand as there’s little point moaning about extremes when reading horror, as long as it fits the story without be gratuitous. The various personalities build a rich tapestry of human nature, good and bad. For me, the book ends on a perfect note. ( )

This predictable, carnage-filled thriller from the pseudonymous Cutter will appeal mainly to horror fans. On Falstaff Island, off Prince Edward Island, a troop of boy scouts encounters Thomas Henry Padgett, aka “the Hungry Man,” a victim of military research gone terribly wrong. An act of charity toward Padgett, who carries a deadly contagion, turns out to be a big mistake that leaves the scouts with no choice but to rely on their limited tools and rudimentary survival skills. Meanwhile, an alarmed military has quarantined Falstaff Island to protect the world from the evil released there. While the boys have many options, escape is not among them. Competent prose makes up in part for stock characters—the nerd, the popular kid, the quiet psychotic. Cutter’s appeal to modern-day disquiet over the ethical lapses of the military-industrial complex will strike many as pro forma rather than based in any authentic outrage over abuses real or imagined.
