Scott Sigler ñ 4 SummaryTies work once inside a their "HOST AGAIN I THOUGHT THIS WAS "Again I thought this was done 3 The laying out of the various stages of the viral incubation and the increasingly destressing symptoms as the infection progressed was handled in a manner that kept the pages turning 4 The stakes aising plot development egarding the virus not being just a virus eally amped up the tension and added a sense of freshness to what could have been a very pedestrian plague novel 5 Healthy doses Disturbing amounts of blood gore and almost unmentionable dismemberments I ll simply mention Chicken Scissors and leave it at that Just thinking of it makes me wince Still this was sick graphic and wonderfully entertaining Unfortunatelydisappointment lurked nearbyin the shadows The Shitty The characters in charge of carrying the story were just horrible I didn t get along with a single one and the only thing worse than their clanging internal monologues was when they opened their pie holes to speak I m not saying all of the dialogue was bad but it arely felt natural and there were far too many wincing eye olling moments to overlook In essence that uined this novel for me I cared for no one affected by the virus not just because they were two dimensional and unrealistic but because they were dumbass annoyasauruses Anyway I don t want to belabor the point because I can hear Baby Rage just itching to make an appearance in this eview It wasn t Baby Rage badthe characters and dialogue werebut the est of the story was a solid 3 star effortparts of it even 4 star worthy as I eally thought the premise was fun BUTthe negatives were too large and hairy to overlook 20 stars Listened to the audio book during my commute Always love it when authors ead their own books as long as the performance is somewhat decent Ended with a cliffhanger so I look forward to eading contagion 349999999 stars but I ll ound up to 4 cause I m a nice guy This book did nothing for me If you e going to give me action then give me action I can believe and not have to stop every other page and uestion what I m eading If you e going to give me violence and gore and be warned there is a lot of violence and gore here then give me violence and gore I can believe and not something just for the sake of writing something violentThe concept of alien spores growing in humans was easier for me to swallow than anything else
in this story and when it got to the alien spores talking to the infecteds the whole thing gotthis story and when it got to the alien spores talking to the infecteds the whole thing got little comical for me and I started seeing Perry and his spores as some type of sci fi Three StoogesThis book comes with a lot of hype and that s it has going for it as far as I was concerned I wouldn t ecommend this book to anyone Scott Sigler is a podcast author 1 on every aggregator icluding Itunes Infected is his first published novel I picked it up because the cover looked cool and the title sounded creepy The short synopsis inside the front cover convinced me to buy itBoy was I glad I didInfected is an original story that s well told thought provoking and fun to ead The characters are well written and believable and the story is intriguing This book gave me the feeling that all this was happening in eal time I felt like if I wasn t eading it things were happening without me "I Read This Book " read this book uickly like I was afraid I d miss something if I didn t It was a strange feeling I attribute it to Siglers uniue writing style I loved the short chapters and the POV shift between charactersI think I spent time thinking about this one than I did eading it because I couldn t help but tear though it as uickly as possible I loved it can t wait until Scott Sigler writes another I might even try listening to one of his stories on my Ipod.

Thinking Of Eating Later eating later however a great book to lose weight by eading Sigler finds the perfect balance between giving enough information on what s unfolding and allowing our imaginations to fill in the estThe portions of the story with March are the most compelling of the book Sigler seems to channel Stephen King or Richard Matheson in finding the everyman who is in some bizarre circumstance and trying to figure out how to eact to it March s descent into madness works because Sigler lays out the journey and the decisions that eventually lead to his actions That said you ll never look at chicken scissors in uite the same way again Where the story does drag a bit is in the governmental pursuit of the virus While March s story has a definite beginning middle and end the story of what the virus is and the pursuit of it feels like the opening salvo of a larger storyline If you e looking for a lot of answers on that front you e going to come away being disappointed Infected clearly leaves itself open for a seuel and I just hope sales justify the next installment of this seriesOf course I guess even if they don t the good news is that Sigler would still deliver the novel via podcastBut why not pick up the book and encourage them to give us At times Infected is a white knuckle thriller that will keep the pages turning and there are certain scenes that will huant you long after the final page is turned It s a bloody dark violent gruesome affair and one of the best first novels I ve ead in a long time Some day we may all look back and say Oh yeah I ead Sigler back when Get on board "the train now You won t egret it Well plotted enough I suppose but most definitely NOT "train now You won t egret it Well plotted enough I suppose but most definitely NOT kind of ead Incessant foul language manic violence graphic gore and grating characters Ending wasn t what I d expected not a compliment and I weary of obvious seuel set upsaudiobook note Authors arely do a good job eading their own works and Sigler even acknowledges that he can t do female voices He s ight Geeumwellthis wasuh severely frustratingIt had an interesting premise a solid story and truly excellent horror elementsBUT it also had shitty characters and dialogue that grated on my nerve clusters bad enough to leave me irked with the entire effort Such a hope dashing bitter disappointment this was for me After eally enjoying Ancestor some time ago I was looking to Sigler to become a new staple for me in the ealm of science horror Now after this miss it looks like his newest effort Nocturnal will be the deciding vote on whether he and I have a future together And so it goes Undressing the novel down to its various components I thought most of them were good to excellent Sigler has a terrific imagination and I was a fan of both the plot and the science fictionhorror aspects It was just that giant dimpled 800 pound BUT that uined things by blowing stink all over the story First the positivesThe Good 1 The premiseET virus lands on Earth finds warm comfy humans to nest in and turns these infected into paranoid murderous sickfuckopaths Me likelythumbs up 2 Intriguing backstorydetails on the parasitic space invaders complete with plenty of easily digestible science bits on how the nas.
