  • Unique and interesting read

    I had no idea what to expect from this book but I found the concept fascinating. An excellent sci-fi novel that I would recommend to anybody interested in the genre
  • Humans bad, spiders good.

    By Loopless
    That about sums it up. The ending was pretty much signaled some chapters before the end. Much more ‘character development’ of insects and spiders than the humans who seemed like caricatures.
  • Incredible

    By PS96CA
    Hands down one of the best books I’ve ever read. Few stories are so unique, original, and intriguing. Could not put it down.
  • This is a modern day masterpiece

    By Henrikaos
    This book is an incredible story through time and the relativity of age. There are few other modern sci-fi books that has lingered with me as long as this one has. I wish I could read this book for the first time again.
