The Troop

The Troop - Nick Cutter It might not be the most original of storylines and the characters are a tad cliche, but I still found it to be a quite terrifying, specifically because the events were happening to a group of young boys.
Some reviewers have said that this was more of a YA book intended more for adolescent boys, but because of the blood and guts factor, I am not sure I would let my son read least not yet. That said, I quite enjoyed the story. It had all of the things I like: a government cover-up, an escaped human test subject, a nasty parasite and an unsuspecting group of people. If you like that sort of thing, then I think you would enjoy this book. 4 stars.
