IN A PEACEFUL NEW ENGLAND VILLAGE, TERROR LIES LURKING BENEATH THE SURFACE...

Phillipsport, Maine seems to be the perfect place for novelist Rick Sychek to settle in to. A small seaport village, it is quaint and peaceful, just what Rick needs in order to write his next novel.

On his drive into town Rick runs over what appears to be a large crab in the road. About the size of a common house cat and sporting a segmented tail that resembles the stinger of a scorpion, it is unlike any crustacean he or anybody else in town has seen before. Within the next day the town is literally besieged by hundreds of the creatures -- which Rick calls Clickers due to the sound their claws make as the click together -- as they ravage and plunder anything unlucky enough to get in their way.

NOW THE WAVE OF TERROR BEGINS...

Hundreds of Clickers literally beach themselves in a wave of terror that ends in horror and death for some....but it brings the town together collectively in a fight to drive the creatures back. Rick joins his new friends in fighting the creatures off only to discover that the Clickers aren't merely here to ravage and pillage. They are being driven up on the shores of this New England by instinct. For something is hunting the Clickers. Something far worse than any of them could ever imagine...

Wow! I just tore through this book! I'd read 200 pages at a pop and not even realize it, that's how engrossing this book was. I'll admit I'm a huge fan of great monster movies like "Them" or "The Creature from the Black Lgoon", so a book that starts with a small Maine beach town being invaded by prehistoric crab scorpion hybrids is right up my alley. But this book just relentlessly portrays the horror of this invasion and what comes after. Let's just say there is a lot of vividly described bloodshed.... I really liked the main character. While not incredibly complex, I thought it was kind of cool that he was a horror writer. The supporting characters had enough backstory to make them likeable, make us care for them, especially when they're killed in gruesome fashion. For all you monster fans I highly recommend this book. If and when it ever gets made into a movie, I'll definitely buy a ticket!

I had been looking for quite some time for a book like this. I'm a serious fan of monster flicks and that is exactly what this is. This is right up there next to Meg and other great books that truly read like a late night creature feature. I recommend this to anyone and everyone.

This book is more 'American' and contemporary than many of Smith's. But the crab-like critters are great fun. It's gory, suspensful, and exciting. What more can you ask from a beach book? Yes, this is a good one to read on the shore ... if you dare.

Whether you like your seafood served on a platter or splattered across the road, you're in for the ride of your life with this book. Wonderful, fun read. An absolute must for horror buffs who like to gasp. I'm a jaded horror reader and this book surprised me. Just when I thought it was safe to go into the water. . . Will translate wonderfully to a movie. Peter Benchly and Stephen King fans will love this book.

There is no doubt that this story is good, in theory. The premise is a wonderful place to start. Add in a bunch of under-developed characters, a b-movie bad guy and a whole lot of typos and grammatical errors and you have Clickers. This could have been a good book but I was so distracted by the number of errors that I had a tough time. Probably worth a read if you can't find anything else that looks good in the e-book world.
