The Nest

It was just an ordinary garbage dump on peaceful Cape Cod No one ever imagined that conditions were perfect for multiple breedi. 355 starsOne of my favorite sub genres of horror is the creature feature and boy does this one deliverOn a small island off the coast of Cape Cod something is happening in the middle of the island s dump There s hissing and movements then someone s dog dies and so begins THE NEST I m not going to make like this book is some kind of literary achievement because it s not Does anyone really pick up a giant cockroach book and think it s literary I guess it s possible but it s not the case here What this book IS isjust plain romping and chomping F U NSet on an island in my home state the isolation makes for a cockroach feast And that s basically what we get cockroaches feeding on this one and on that one in increasingly inventive and gross ways See my previous statement F U N Being that this was originally written back in 1980 we also get some preachy scientist talk some man splaining a smidge of schmaltzy romance a wee bit of anti feminism and a tad of classism Did I mention the gross cockroach kills Okay so this isn t the great American novel but what it is is a lot of gross out laughter and chills and a few hours of mindless entertainment In these political times who couldn t use that I would have given this three stars based on the writing alone but I added a half star and rounded it up to 4 total because of the FUN factorRecommended to fans of 80 s horror and creature features Valancourt Books has teamed up with Grady Hendrix and Will Errickson Authors of PAPERBACKS FROM HELL to bring you an entire line of horror books from the 70 s and 80 s called the PAPERBACKS FROM HELL series Find out about the series here I was given an e ARC of this book in exchange for my honest feedback This is it

Ng that it was a warm womb fetid moist and with food so plentiful that everything crawling creeping and slithering could gorge. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Video review coming shortly The Nest written by Gregory A Douglas aka Eli Cantor was originally published by Zebra Books in 1980 Since then the novel has been out of print available only to those persistent enough to find it in used bookstores Fortunately that is no longer the issue thanks to Valancourt Books and their Paperbacks from Hell series With the help of author Grady Hendrix and vintage horror expert Will Errickson Valancourt is reprinting five vintage horrors for modern day readersThere is really no better starting place for the Paperbacks from Hell line than The Nest It flawlessly captures the gory goopy animal attack entertainment of the 70s and 80s The story is simple enough mutated roaches overtake a Cape Cod town and begin eating everyone That s really all you need to know about the plot Sure we have a large cast of small town characters but the focus is often than not on the vicious attacks of man eating roachesBy vicious attacks I mean vicious attacks These roaches are unstoppable They eat everything including the bones so as you can imagine the book is incredibly gruesome There are a few kill scenes that go on for pages describing in detail the extent to which these roaches feast on human flesh Combining those gore filled scenes with Douglas s flowery purple prose you have yourself a strange concoction of dark humor and truly unsettling hopelessnessTypically I find flowery writing to be very off putting an attempt at poetry that comes off as pretension The Nest definitely has that vibe but something about reading horrible gory deaths written in such an artsy way had me rolling on the floor It often feels like the author is parodying high brow literature so I get the impression that Mr Douglas knew what he was doing hereEven though I found this aspect of The Nest to be very humorous there are times when the writing serves a different purpose This is where that unsettling hopelessness comes into play Imagine thousands of hungry man eating roaches scrambling toward you You stomp on as many as you can before you lock yourself in a room Some of the insects sueeze under the door while others chew their way through the wood They won t stop coming A flying roach lands on you cheek and begins biting You slap at it and its blood splatters into your eyes temporarily blinding you You can t see anything But you can feel feel the roaches covering your body They burrow into your skin As you slap at them take their place Even if you get all the bugs off your body you know it s too late they are already inside you eating you from the inside Pretty hopeless right Once the characters are in the presence of these roaches there is no escaping The insects are as relentless as Douglas s writingUnfortunately while this novel is filled with gore terror humor and several shocking moments there are many scenes in which our characters sit around discussing the science of roaches These scenes are long drawn out and very boring For this reason I have to deduct a star and a half from an otherwise bonkers five star book On the bright side I now know about roaches than I ever thought possibleOverall The Nest was a wildly entertaining reading experience made even enjoyable by Will Errickson s well written introduction If you like small town horror and animal attack books this is a must read 35 starsThe first three books in the Paperbacks from Hell series are available now You can subscribe to have those three books shipped to you plus the other two once they become available I sincerely hope Valancourt continues the series for another wave of vintage horror paperbacks

    325I liked it At times it felt both pretentious with having to constantly look up words only to realize it seemed to just be using big words because it could not because it needed to Like a look what big word I know even though this is just a killer cockroach book and badly written I mostly liked all the science but eventually it did feel a bit dry The romance feltweird tooand i'm not sure why it was thereThat stuff a

    35150 stars I liked the old school feel to this just enough to round up to 4 This story takes a bit of an odd perspective for me considering my very science minded young son is raising some giant cockroaches in a cage in his room right now amongst many other creepy crawlies I’ll definitely be looking at them differently from now on lol Fun creature feature horror

    this has nothing to do with the 1988 namesake film 囧what did i say before? to seek a copy of 80's horror paperback in chinkland is way harder than to find a pure piece of gold nuggetjust like the sweeter the lick of ass is the stin

    Well that was creepy The Nest is for cockroaches as Arachnophobia is for spiders Damn near sure to induce entomophobia this 1980's creature feature horror brought back to life thanks to Grady Hendrix's Paperbacks from Hell and Valancourt Books is a spine tingling disturbingly good piece of fiction which thanks to the authors extensive research reads scarily plausible yep even with these menacing cockroaches reaching t
