The characters are the other strong point, and they carry the book between action scenes. I still haven’t decided which is my favorite…either Olivia, Billy, or maybe even Maggie. It’s a big book, but definitely worth your time.
The book isn’t just about giant spiders though. As the plot unravels, the story will prove to be much more elaborated than that. I recommend to prospective readers to avoid spoiling the story: just grab this book and start reading, and let yourself be surprised.
Regarding Hilliard’s style, I can honestly say that I’ve found a gem. The flow and readability are near perfect, which is surprising, considering the lexical variability of his choice, the book is never “wordy” (despite its nearly 500 pages). If you pay attention, you’ll find a pattern of short paragraphs followed by a longer, more descriptive paragraph. The dialogues are fluid and sound natural, especially when a character thinks about the reaction his words might have on other characters, or when his lines are in dissonance to what he’s really feeling. It adds to the realism, which is, again, surprising, considering the subject of this book. Adam’s suffering due to the aftereffects of a terrible accident are very touching and realistic, you can really feel the emotional and physical struggle he’s going through.
The descriptions of settings and locations are memorable. A vivid scene is painted and that helps to situate the reader inside the story. This effect owes much to the choice of setting as well.Read more ›
There is so much more to this book than just giant spiders!
Hilliard has created an epic masterpiece with this novel, dealing with secret societies, Native American folklore, a centuries long tribal war, etc, and he just happens to add some spiders (ranging anywhere from two feet to forty plus feet!) in the mix.
Hilliard is one of those authors that draws you completely into the world that he has created, and once you have entered it is difficult to leave, let me yell you!
(My wife jokingly says that I am not going to be allowed to read Hilliard's next book, as I get so enraptured in his stories.)
I really don't want to say too much more about this book, other than the fact that this book will make an excellent gift for a reader in your life, and not just for horror fans! Anyone who enjoys a quick escape from reality will enjoy reading this novel!
The author, D. Nathan Hilliard did a great job of writing in a way that kept my interest. Many times I found myself holding my breath because some of the events were so thrilling! I like how complicated and complex the plot got, definitely wasn't expecting the kind of revelations that emerged in our main character, Adam's, life.
Serious readers will really enjoy this read and be pleasantly surprised in a variety of ways. Spiderstalk is an absolute thrill!
