“Fun, disgusting horror! I really enjoyed this book. Giant worms and nautical monsters with a biblical twist on the story of Noah's Ark. Very different from the normal horror stories that I'm used to.
The only down side was how cheesy and monotonous the characters could be. Keene had his characters spouting stupid lines from popular movies and in one chapter he actually ended it with "The night was dark, but I had a feeling it was going to get a lot darker."
Still a very fun book.”
“Brian Keene's "The Conqueror Worms" is to the horror genre what Billy Joel's "Scenes From An Italian Resturaunt" is to pop music. "The Conquorer Worms" is a woven tale of a world in the midst of the appocolypse. The appocolypse as only Brian Keene can envision it.
The first part of the story tells the tale of the worms. That story leads to a flashback to Baltimore, MD where other creatures are reaping their own havoc. The story then winds up back at the worms. Anyone familiar with Keene's storytelling knows that rarely is there a happy ending.
Pure Keene. Honest, Dark and wholly entertaining. Don't let the title throw you off, The Conqueror Worms is that and much more. This is the end of the world people, the kids aren't eating the worms, the worms are eating the kids!”

“This was a little on the weird side. Chemicals and a constant deluge of rain made these worms as big as 20 story buildings. How nobody knew about these creatures before they started to appear was beyond me. It was a good read, but it had it's silly moments. At least I can say I have read it.”Kevin K wrote this review Wednesday, August 26, 2009. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
