Children of Time - Adrian Tchaikovsky

Wow, this is really, really good. I´m getting a whole new appreciation for spiders, they are absolutely awesome in this book. 

 

And despite it being a science fiction book, the last couple of chapters felt more like a horror novel:

 

The attack of the ants! And imagine yourself being in the shoes of Nessel, held captive on that planet by intelligent spiders as a kind of guinea pig and not being able to communicate with them.
