One Saturday I went into the office to clean up some left-over work. I unlocked my office door and opened it. On the floor was the ugliest looking bug I ever saw. It was grub shaped about five inches long and three inches wide, the color of translucent puke, and bore huge dangerous looking mandibles. The god-forsaken thing was literally pulsing and had six scorpion like legs. But the scariest thing was that this sucker didn't run away like most insects. It headed straight toward me with surprisi ...more

Grubs brings back so many fond memories. That sounds really bad, considering that there are some pretty disgusting scenes. Seriously, though, it has all the well-loved parts of a B-movie Creature Feature. You know - there's something in the woods, and it's eating people (display gruesome half-eaten body part), and of course there's a group of people handily nearby to BE eaten.

Specifically, there's a group of scientific researchers in the wilds of Maine. Everything's going well until one of the s
For those who have read some of my earlier reviews, you'll know that I have a thing for "When Nature Strikes Back" movies and books, so naturally, when I saw David McAfee's GRUBS, I just had to get it. I've never read anything by McAfee before, so I had no idea what I was getting into.

Eight scientists on a routine field research expedition in the wilds of Maine. Short of a sprained ankle or a broken nail, nothing could go wrong, and to make certain of that, Colby, a disgraced ex-Marine, has been

Since I was helping out the author with the cover, I read GRUBS in manuscript format. And I don't normally read horror (or watch it.) However, GRUBS is such honest to goodness, campy, adult comic book B movie type fun. It's creepy, gory, edge of your seat, skin-crawlingly good. I was able to lose myself in the story despite it not being my normal genres.

The author's writing style is lean, polished, and engaging. It was such a pleasure to read something without feeling the need to reach for my e

Dark forest in Maine
5 scientists
1 veteran Marine leader
3 tents
1 love interest
1 pound of flesh-eating grubs
1 severed hand
3 zombies
2 guns
1 mind-controlling queen

Combine scientists, marine vet, tents, then place into the very center of Dark Forest. Using severed hand, separate military vet, then mix with love interest and sex scenes. When thoroughly warmed, dump entire pound of flesh-eating grubs into
Grubs wasn't anything more than I thought it would be, and I think that's what the author had in mind when writing it. It's a lot of gory fun with a predictable ending.

This book was a great read, a lot of fun, gross and just playing disgusting goodness. I was reading one scene during lunch I had to put my sandwich down. The graphic description of the grubs doing their thing was absolutely disgusting & disturbing, but I loved it and I would have rather read than eat. All throughout this book I constantly felt that something was crawling all over my body. I had to slap or scratch myself constantly to make sure I didn't have one of those pesky grubs on it. I' ...more
I read this mostly because it was free and available on my phone, and I didn't have anything else going at the moment.

The author describes, at the end, why he wrote the book, and it's pretty much exactly what you'd expect. It's a B-movie monster plot in book form. A bunch of scientists and their wilderness guide/body guard are up in Maine running some kind of vague experiments, when they stumble upon a new kind of insect that doesn't just devour its host. Most of the action follows the former M

Ok, I admit it. I am one of those odd people who actually reads the license notes and etc, if they are listed. I must say the Kindle edition, license notes read like an accusation of thievery. The author seems convinced that if you are reading his novel you have either acquired it illegally or intend to share it illegally. I will NEVER purchase another novel by this author again. Take the last s of the title and you have my opinion of the author.

As for the novel itself, I di

This is the third book that I have read by David McAfee and I must say he is growing on me. The first book of his I read was 33 A.D. and I gave it a 4 star rating. Nasty Little F!#*ers is simply a fun and disgustingly thrill ride. I give it a solid 3 Star rating.

Fun b-movie gory goodness! It's the novel equivalent to a Roger Corman creature feature. Not the best book I've ever read, but one that I really enjoyed.
Josh Jordan

An enjoyable and easy read. Predictable, but it was still fun to read and I didn't have a problem reading it all the way through.
meh. rather tedious and predictable. enjoyed to b-movie quality of writing but some surprises would have been nice.
Quick read - great little horror read set in the back woods of Maine.
Ok-fast read. Creepy gross and sexual...weird combo.
