this is my second and probably last audiobook I really don t get the appeal clearly they are not for me ugh Scott Sigler is one of those new fangled podcast novelists who is revolutionizing the publishing industry Sigler offered audiences his first couple of novels free to the whoever wanted to download them Through hard work and shameless self promotion, Sigler got his name out there, drew in audiences and created a network of 30,000 plus rabid fans who couldn t wait for the next insallment or novel.
Eventually, the publishing industry took notice and signed Sigler to a contract to put his stories in the old fashioned brick and mortar stores And unlike some first time authors of this kind, Sigler wasn t going out in paperback or a trade paperback He was going hardcover with a full on marketing push and blitz.
The first major label publication is Sigler s popular story Infected Not only because it s one of his better books, but also becuase it s creating the universe that Si Well plotted enough, I suppose, but most definitely NOT my kind of read 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 sequel set ups.
audiobook note Authors rarely do a good job reading their own works, and Sigler even acknowledges that he can t do female voices He s right.
This book did nothing for me If you re going to give me action, then give me action I can believe and not have to stop every other page and question what I m reading If you re 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 violent.
The 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 got a little comical for me and I started seeing Perry and his spores as some type of sci fi Three Stooges.
This book comes with a lot of hype and that s it has going for it as far as I AWESOME Totally awesome.
Love this first book.
I was getting the creepy willies all while reading it.
When I started the book I was all fangirl because I love some contagion books Yes, I know I have weird tastes in books Some kind of contagion is sweeping a town, it causes people to go completely nuts and to kill the people around them A seventy something year old Grandma kills her son because of it.
Then before the bodies of the assailants can be looked at they rot, completely turn to mush, and an odd fungus looking stuff.
Things of daydreams right Then a former football player gets Infected Perry Dawsey is a big guy, he has been known for his horrible temper but has settled into a boring office job Once Infected Perry fights back He has blue triangles growing in his skin There are others that have been infe 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 it.
Boy, was I glad I did Infected is an original story that s well told, thought provoking, and fun to read The characters are well written and believable and the story is intriguing This book gave me the feeling that all this was happening in real time I felt like if I wasn t reading it, things were happening without me I read this book very quickly like I was afraid I d miss something if I didn t It was a strange feeling I attribute it to Siglers unique writing style I loved the short chapters and the POV shift between characters.
I think I spent time thinking about this on
