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
Eventually, the publishing industry took notice and signed Sigler to a contract to put his stories i ...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.

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

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
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.
Perry Dawsey is a fallen athlete from Ann Arbor, Michigan, who spent his former college days on the football field as a local hero. After ...more

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

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
Estamos perante uma história que se encaixa nos géneros de terror e ficção científica, e se tenho vindo a explorar com curiosidade alguns livros dentro do segundo, definitivam ...more
Okay, cool, I thought. However, the book that that p ...more
This was a fun read, weird in places true. I have some questions that were not answered but I don't think this lessons the enjoyment of the novel at all. It was interesting to "see" so to speak the transformation(both mentally & physically) of Perry as the seeds took root and grew within him. It would have been nice to find out where exactly they came from & what exactly that gateway was leading to but it was never said. All in all if you suspend belief a bit and let t ...more
Now, why the rating and why try the next book?
Well, the idea behind the book is interesting. As movie goers and readers already know. For example (view spoiler)[The Puppet Masters, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the movie Alien...and many, many more. (hide spoiler)] The book was interesting enough that I found I wanted to see how the writer worked ...more
