"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"The Hatching" releases the nightmare; a terror entombed for better than 10,000 years, sealed with a dire warning and never intended to be discovered is unearthed. An irrational, visceral and primal dread is connected to ancient events that deeply imprinted its instinctive, genetically-stored memory into the human subconscious. Its true nature realized too late, the knowledge changes everything we think we know about a major extinction event and the implications place a group of survivors into a race for the survival of not just themselves but for humanity itself.
Check the corners... check the ceiling above your bed... check under the covers... enter the nightmare.
"Skitter" picks up the remains and hits the ground running. I'm anxiously awaiting next year's 3rd book in this chilling series.

This story was told a little differently. Each chapter focuses on a different character or set of characters. Readers do get to see these characters at various parts of the books and sometimes their stories overlap but the focus of this book stays on the spiders. Don't get me wrong, I did feel like I knew the key characters in this story by the end of the book. I really liked how each chapter was like another piece of an overall puzzle.
So this book is about spiders but not your everyday run of the mill spider. This book is about killer spiders, lots of killer spiders. These are spiders unlike anything the world has ever seen. They can kill with remarkable speed and are driven to do so. When a nuclear bomb is detonated in China, officials initially believe it is an accident but they soon wonder if it was really in response to the spiders.
I was amazed by how realistic everything in this book seemed. I am really not too worried about giants waves of man eating spiders but I thought that the reactions to an extreme emergency felt genuine. I thought that the government's response to the situation wasn't outside the realm of possibility if there was a threat on this kind of level. I liked how this book really let the reader into the heads of people on all sides of the situation.
I would highly recommend this book. I think that this was an incredibly entertaining book with a whole lot of excitement. I am really excited to continue on with this series because I need to know what happens next.
Will be buying the next in the series.
Postscript: this story is really, really gross. Be warned.
