Infected (Infected #1)
Working under the government’s shroud of secrecy, CIA operative Dew Phillips crisscrosses the country trying in vain to capture a live victim. With only decomposing corpses for clues, CDC epidemiolo ...more
It had an interesting premise, a solid story, and truly excellent horror elements…BUT 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 really enjoying Ancestor some time ago, I was looking to Sigler to become a new staple for me in the realm of science-horror. Now, after this miss, it looks li ...more
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 looki ...more
Eventually, the publishing industry took notice and signed Sigler to a contract to put his stories i ...more

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.

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 r ...more
"Infecção" foi desde a sua publicação um livro que me chamou a atenção e pelo qual acabei por desenvolver algumas expectativas. Nem todas corresponderam, acho que esperava mais do livro, ou uma história diferente, não que a contada seja má, apenas espera mais.
Trata-se de um livro inserido no género Terror/Horror no qual tenho poucos conhecimentos. Sou decididamente mais fã de filmes ou mesmo séries vocacionadas para a área do que propriamente em livros.
Primeiramente o livro agarrou-me muito ...more
Love this first book.
I was getting the creepy-willies all while reading it.
S P O I L E R S B E L O W !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did anyone else get EXTRA creeped out by the association with Morgellons? Look it up if you haven't, I thought I was being April Fool's day spoo ...more
Infeção é, acima de tudo, um livro de ficção científica com traços de policial/thriller que não traz nada de novo ao mundo literário mas que sem dúvida entretém.
Comecei esta leitura pouco convencida de que iria gostar e até com o pressentimento de que a iria abandonar após algum tempo não só devido a alguns comentários mas, em grande parte, devido às primeiras páginas que se vieram a revelar um pequeno entrave. Antes de qualquer pessoa pegar neste livro aconselho a pensarem 2 vezes...more
It's been 4 years since I read this book, and yet I still managed to cringe when I stumbled upon the book's cover while surfing Goodreads. Why is this such a surprise to me? Partly because I don't usually remember the details of many of the books I've read, unless it's super good. Why did I cringe? Because this book is GROSS AS FU...!!!
Let's be clear: I don't gross out easily. I grew up watching scary/gross movies and reading scary/gross books. I also have 3 younger brothers, wh ...more

Um. I was excited to read this book because
OK...I think this book...well, what I think of this book...
When Perry were trying to get things out of his body...SKIN...
AT THE END OF BOOK, I was like..
I don't want the damn thing inside of my body...
I REPEAT, WHAT. THE. F.U.C.K.!
The book was great, if a bit gross in parts for my taste. It was a weird mix if sci-fi and horror, which I don't ...more
The gore and descriptive nature of the storytelling had me wincing at times and squirming all over the place as I listened to this. The flaws are the fact that the characters are very unlikeable and you hope they do not make it a lot of the time. There is some elements of knowing if the science is plausible and whether what Perry does near the end is possible to survive.
But I cannot wait to see ...more

Porquê? Porque eu sou daquelas pessoas que nunca na vida poderia ser médica. Sangue não me faz impressão mas tecidos moles, órgãos internos e coisas do estilo deixam-me arrepiada até à medula.
Este livro poder-se-ia bem inserir naquele tipo de séries televisivas como os V ou a Vieram em Paz ou algo do género; séries de que eu até gosto. A narrativa é incrivelmente corrente e deixa-nos na expectativa para o que vem d ...more
