Fascinating, scary, odd characters, great setting

I enjoyed this book very much for its odd characters and chillingly scary sea creatures. At times, the suspense was very high and the book hard to put down. The New Foundland setting was haunting and beautiful, and I don't think readers will have ever read a book quite like this! It is strange and absurd, biological, mystical, mythical. Hard to describe. You can't go wrong with this book.

Fantastic, Wild, Magnificent

If I were stuck on an island for a decade and could take only one book with me, Spider Legs would be the one. Funny, disturbing, shocking, apocalyptic, absurd -- lots of action and suspense. The book with its beautiful setting and odd cast of characters ring in the mind long after most books are forgotten. Long live the pycnogonids!

Superb and Full of Suspense and Curiosities

This book has so many wonderful and strange ideas that it is a must read for anyone wanting a "JAWS meets X-FILES" kind of book. There is suspense, horror, humor, oddness, absurdity, and a creature sure to win attention if this book is turned into a movie.

I loved the setting and strange creatures!

The aspect I liked best about the book was the beautiful New Foundland setting and strange creatures. I think other readers will be fascinated!

Excellent. Strange characters. Frightning monsters.

The publisher calls this book "the ultimate crustacean encounter," and that it is! The quirky characters and setting enhance the book's appeal. "Twin Peaks" meets "Jaws." The depictions of the sea spiders are among the scariest creature-scenes I've ever read, and some of the attack scenes had me squirming for more. Loaded with fascinating biological facts and oddities. Strange things are born in the ocean's depths... I can't wait until they make a blockbuster movie from this book. It would be more powerful than "Jaws" because the giant sea spiders are more terrifying, more deadly. I notice that the West Coast Review of Books remarked: "Pickover has collaborated on a novel with the prolific Piers Anthony, and the combination of Pickover's theory and Anthony's fantasy should yield an intellectual tour de force without precedent."
