This isn't your typical fantasy story about being sorted into factions, fighting a war against a big bad villain, and living happily ever after. In fact, I wro... Read more of this blog post »

This book had a very Chuck feel but most importantly it grabbed me by the balls and never let go until the very end. I would have given it 5 stars but the ending was too anti-climactic.

Such a well executed Sci-fi novel. The first 2/3rds of the novel is purely build up and it left me literally anticipating the next page. Infected had a lot of build up, but I believe this book really presents us with a master of his craft. Scott Sigl...more

“I pop a cassette into the Buick's stereo. It's the Ramones. I turn the volume up high and roll down the windows. The highway air tastes of fumes, but it still feels goddamn good to breathe”
Hank Moody, God Hates Us All

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all… I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“I come from a land afar and a land up high. My abilities are only eclipsed by my excellent turn of phrase and if you open your mind, they could be your abilities too.”

“Strong belief in the bright future, always hiding fear of the past”.”
