An updated version of a story originally told as a serialised audio drama, Infected is a real page-turner. The plight of the central character, Perry, is not for the faint-hearted, but while you might feel squeamish about learning what happens next you also feel compelled to read on and discover how it all pans out. A difficult balance to strike in a novel, but one that has been expertly handled by the author.
Scott Sigler is definitely one to watch and I'm glad to learn that a sequel is already in progress.
A word of warning though - this book is most certainly not for the faint-hearted or weak-stomached. If you can handle the gore Sigler dishes out, you're in for a great ride! Be sure to check out Sigler's other works, particularly his podcast novels - all superb and highly recommended.
whats to lose? just beware the chickens scissors!!!
Apparently there is a little room at AT&T that screens the phone lines for key words….and so the tracking begins.
Deputy Director of the CIA, Murray Longworth is a great character, with a complex history, just not very likeable but then when you have to do what he has to do, not sure I would be likable either.
Dew & Malcolm pick the short straw of being excellent field agents, again with some really great back stories, IMO this is what makes this an awesome novel and ultimately fantastic trilogy, each character is fleshed out, I truly felt a bond to these characters and missed and grieved for them as their stories played out.
The other main players are an epidemiologist, Margaret and her little sidekick, parasitologist, Amos. They are assigned their own Agent Clarence. Apart from all the betting and banter that goes on these three make a great team, which is seriously needed when you realise what has come to take a peek at Earth.
Are the characters a little cliché? Yes of course, but then wouldn’t bland characters be just that? Boring!
Scary Perry Dawson, what a man to pick for an alien invasion. Perry maybe scary for many reasons but thankfully he has his BFF Bill to keep his temper in check for him, Perry has his reasons for having anger management issues but at 6’ 4” and 268lbs you need discipline.Read more ›
I'm impressed by the authors imagination, and it was at times very unsettling, and the book haunts me still by the way the storyteller have told the story. The characters are well thought through, interesting, and came to life in the book.
I loved this book, and the series have not let me down in any way. Very happy I gave it a go.
This title is the first I have read by Scott Sigler and while not a 'horror' fan, I found this book almost unputdownable (if there is such a word!). Itis an excellent read, which keeps you on tenderhooks all the way through. I hope a sequel is planned ...
Anyway, mysterious spores turn into triangular lumps on people and gradually turn their victims into something psychotic.
Government agents rush to contain and understand the nature of the attack while we watch in gory detail as one of the victims undertakes a personal battle with his infestations.
This is probably more horror then anything else - to me a mix of early James Herbert meets the X Files and doesn't really pretend to be anything other then pulp fiction. So if you want a quick blast of gore and black humour then this might be for you, especially if you set your expectations at the right level.
Three stars as it is quite entertaining for what it is, but this is no life changing book that you will recommend to your friends, more of a guilty reading secret!
