Book Description

Feb. 3 2004
Deep in the dirty sewers of London there is a Breeding Ground ...

The slugs have come back ... slowly... silently... they slither along dank, fetid tunnels into the city in search of human flesh. Their insatiable need knows no bounds.

But now they bring a new horror - a plague which spreads insanity and death, transforming its victims into grotesque, crazed killers.

Caught in this maelstrom of horror is Dr. Alan Finch - the only man capable of destroying the Breeding Ground forever...

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Nastier sequel to SLUGS! Nov. 12 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Once again, Shaun Hutson demonstrates his ability to make the slimy little gastropods known as slugs scary, and does it even better in this sequel to his first bestselling novel. Well naturally, the slugs are back, and have moved from the small England town in the first book to the sewers of London in this novel. The sewers are the breeding ground of the title. Well, the only new feature to this novel is that the slime trails made by the slugs turn people into savage, demented killers and maniacs if they are touched. Apart from that, nothing different from the novel. There is a main character named Alan Finch who is apparently a doctor, but like the health inspector in SLUGS, doesn't need to be a part of the plot since he does nothing but try to save people, to no effect. And obviously, there is lots of gore and good descriptions of people being eaten in this book, and several graphic sex scenes. AND....the slug's lengths are exaggerated like in the first book. My favorite scene: The guy who goes to the strip club for about $20 worth of entertainment and dies a very stupid death. You'll see what I'm talking about when you buy the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Give the author credit! Nov. 12 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hutson is rarely given the credit he deserves. So I will try to give him some here.
Since the synopsis tells you what the book is about, I won't cover old ground. What I will say is that Hutson has a wonderful writing style. Much better then some of his better known contemporaries. His writing keeps the story flowing smoothly and allows the reader to get involved with the characters and the, generally unpleasant, situations they find themselves in. As for the gore factor, I don't see that it exceeds many other famous writers. For instance, if you enjoy Bentley Little's work, you shouldn't find Hutson's too hard to stomach.
I heartily recommend you try one of his works and make up your own mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary sequel March 26 2009
By marky77 - Published on Amazon.com
Breeding Ground is the sequel to Slugs and is just as scary as the origional. The killer slugs are back and this time, touching their slime gives you a horrible disease which end sin you going mad and killing people.

Very gorey and creepy and this is one of the only books that has genuinely scared me in places. One of Hustons best books. Highly reccommended.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good sequel to Slugs, but on a much larger scale. June 29 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book itself is very similar to its prequel, Slugs. But, because of Hutson's fabulous method of writing horror the fact that this story is on a much larger scale, it is a fabulous read!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nasty sequel to the garden variety monster yarn. Feb. 27 2002
By Chadwick H. Saxelid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Those pesky, slimey, disgusting garden pests have moved to the sewers of London. While they chow down on their unfortunate victims, their slime trails drive any and all that ingest them to violent madness. Lots of sex and violence with little plot to get in the way of the story, as good old boy Joe Bob Briggs so aptly put it. Fans of the first novel with no doubt find more of the same to enjoy here in this lightning paced read. For animal rampage buffs only.
