This is one of my favorite books and the most fascinating part was actually trying to figure out the setting of the book, because it is not told to you right away and the characters have some names of real places combined with names they invented.
The best I could figure out it takes places in Newfoundland(Newf) and Labrador in Canada. And the end character comes from New Zealand(Sealand). My best guess is the distant future, after a Nuclear War.
John kind of messes up at the end with them killing the Waknuk and Fringes people. This makes the characters look bad and goes against the morals of the book. Perhaps the author had a mood shift when writing, but it is certain that it would have been easier and more popular to just change that so the webs did not kill the people.
The book has good concepts, good suspense, good plot, and good morals.
