Insectile Ooze

A Nick Cutter novel couldn't have come at a better time. He is definitely one of my all-time favorite horror writers. Once again Nick delivers up a twisted and imaginative concept oozing with deformities and larval insects. 5 Stars*****

Don’t waste your time

What the hell was this book even about? The narrator pushed me over the deep end. Seriously, don’t waste your time!

Nick Cutter’s Least Interesting

Comparing this to three of his other books i have read (Troop, Little Heaven, Deep), this is my least favorite. It does have the same style and benefits of the others: shocking grotesque scenes without going overboard, ominous setting, and very real character actions (no classic horror-movie dumb decisions). However, the lack of story lead-in and character development made it very hard for me to keep focused. His other three did a great job of laying the scene and giving the characters plenty of back story to relate to them. In The Breach, you are just thrown into the horror and intensity without much context of the characters. I would 100% recommend the other three I mentioned above to a fan of horror lit, but I can’t say I would even mention this one. Give it a go, if you’re a big Cutter fan, but be prepared for the meat of the story right away.

Horrific Imagery Written by a Talented Pen

Cutter is a wordsmith with horror imagery. He writes some of my favorite descriptive metaphors in this genre. This novel was a bit wild, trippy. Some ideas seemed borrowed from The Troop and some from The Deep which makes me wonder if this is an older novel he couldn’t traditionally publish and went the Audible Original route. I don’t mean this as a negative jab. I enjoyed the heck out of this weird little novel. Looking forward to the paperback in a year.

Decent, but too short to answer all the questions raised

I liked this book up until I didn’t like it. Which was right about when the book reached it climax and the end. Overall I felt this book should have been longer. The central conceit of the book wasn’t fleshed out enough and I was left with more questions thats answers. It’s a quick listen and if you like the authors other works you’ll enjoy this although you may be somewhat disappointed in the end.

Yes.

Great literature? No. Great horror? Most definitely. I had to, at various times, turn on the lights, stop eating, or just straight up stop the book. This is modern cosmic horror at its finest. Lovecraft would have approved.

Must get paid by the word

This book really didn't work for me. Hours of useless adjectives and manipulative story line. Don't waste your time.

Nick Cutter Knows How to Scare Adults

This is just another shining example of Cutter's profound understanding of what horror fiction is supposed to be. He knows that, when it comes to making the adult mind feel fear, it's ideas and concepts that ware afraid of, not simply ghosts and monsters. Cutter makes you feel not just fear for what's happening now, but also dread for what comes next.
