Wow! I had a feeling I'd read this before (now I see I did read it 2 years ago), but I kept going because it's so horrifyingly captivating. Sure, the premise is quite literally out of this world, but it's a fast, terrifying read. Very good for this hot spell in our usually temperate summer. Quite gory. Very gory. Ok, totally gross sections that made me wince, but still. . .

I'm a horror/sci-fi addict and read a minimum of 2 books a week. Although I enjoy what I read, being so saturated in the genre makes it challenging to find anything new & exciting - that is until I read Infected! I found myself engrossed and unable to put this book down from beginning to end and ended up finishing it in a day and a half. This is the first I've read from Scott Sigler, but it definitely won't be the last. He has the ability to grab your attention with the first page and simply doesn't let go until the end! Excellent book! It does have some graphic violence & use of the f word if you're sensitive to either of those, but both fit right in with the plot and characters. Can't say it enough - fantastic book that I was sad to have come to an end. He's a very talented writer.

4 adults listened on the way back from Florida - everyone was eager to listen to more. Personally, I found it graphic and parts were disturbing, but a wonderful, engaging story line. The scenes of graphic self-mutilation were not out of place in the story line and were used as character development.

Put a hold on the second part first opportunity....

I disagree with Syrax. Fans of S.K. are not interested in extremely graphic violence and self-mutilation (and self-immolation).

Very good novel indeed. Should appeal to fans of Stephen King's. The author seems to have captured King's ability to probe the psyche of people with diminishing sanity.
Enjoyed it very much.
