"The Troop scared the hell out of me, and I couldn’t put it down. This is old-school horror at its best."—Stephen KingIt begins like a campfire story: Five boys and a grownup went into the woods... It ends in madness and murder. And worse... Once a year, scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a three-day camping trip—a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story and a roaring bonfire. But when an unexpected intruder stumbles upon their campsite—shockingly thin, disturbingly pale, and voraciously hungry—Tim and the boys are exposed to something far more frightening than any tale of terror. The human carrier of a bioengineered nightmare. An inexplicable horror that spreads faster than fear. A harrowing struggle for survival that will pit the troop against the elements, the infected…and one another. Part Lord of the Flies, part 28 Days Later—and all-consuming—this tightly written, edge-of-your-seat thriller will take readers deep into the heart of darkness and close to the edge of sanity.

5.0 The Troop
Oh, I so loved this novel. I enjoyed the bond of the scouts and their leader Tim as they ventured onto Falstaff Island. They’d been together for quite some time, Tim being their leader but also their friend and the boys, a diverse handful. Tim realized there probably wouldn’t be many more outing, th...

5.0 The Worms Crawl In, The Worms Crawl Out...
Alternative name for this review: Fifty Shades of Fuck That, pardon my french. This book is the definition of horrifying. It pushed on literally one of my worst fears. Despite all that, I devoured it and that's really ironic considering the subject matter. In The Troop, Scout Troop 52 is takin...

4.0 The Troop
I read this book for Horror Aficionados August 2016 group read challenge. I have to say that I liked this book better than I thought I would. I had a few problems with some of the characters, and I have to say that I wish that the book had not spoiled things for readers to early with the way the boo...

4.0 "The troop", by Nick Cutter. Una de gusanos.
Hay una cancion de Sabina, de las más antiguas, que se llama "Una de romanos". Pues esto es igual, pero en gusanos. La historia transcurre en Falstaff Island, en los EEUU, donde se encuentran Tim Riggs, un "scoutmaster", junto con cinco de sus "boy scouts" haciendo una especie de campamento. No tele...
