Disturbing and insanely gory apocalyptic horror.
Nuclear power has wiped away civilization and what's left of the survivors die because of extremely nasty diseases ( Ebola X - holy crap ! ), are mistreated by the army or are attacked by extremely nasty clans of mutants straight out of Fallout or are eaten/burned/torn to shreds by creations that resemble the BOW's of Resident Evil.
Tim Curran takes all of these elements and blends together a dark tale about humanity literally getting splattered acr...more

I'm sort of a sucker for post-apocalyptic tales and this clearly hits my wheelhouse with a Mack truck. The story is narrated in the first person by protagonist Rick Nash who loses his wife to a sickness following the nuclear war. Nash gets drafted to clear out dead bodies and I thought this would be a fun and creative direction for the story, but that path is quickly discarded in favor of following the voice of something mysterious and supernatural called The Shape. The Shape guides Nash and his...more

This was the first book I have read by Tim Curran, and I was very impressed. His take on a post-nuclear apocalyptic America is basically like a snowballing nightmare. Its starts horrifically then continues to get worse. This is really nightmarish, disgusting and disturbing stuff, and I would only recommend it to readers of iron will and iron stomach. This is dark, nihilistic horror, but I feel like Curran's heart is in the right place. This scenario makes me wish for world-wide nuclear arms deac...more

4 1/2 Stars - A great horror read!
Adam Wilson
Biohazard by Tim Curran is a nice post nuclear war novel. I will say first off that it doesn't match the standards of Tim Curran's dead Sea (doesn't even come close) but it is still a very fun read that tries and succedes at dripping some originality into the very bland and unoriginal stew of apocalyptic horror. It is a strange read and has more depth than most novels like it. I found it to be very emotional through the entire book with difficult choices having to be made by Nash, our protagonis...more

The last man on Earth sat alone in a room.
There was a knock on the door...
- from the world's shortest horror story (Frederic Knock)

I'm a fan of TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) stories, and as well suffer a compulsion to read dark stories regarding what I'm doing. So, J.A. Jance stories when I'm flying, The Perfect Storm for boating, avian influenza for hospital visits... You get the picture. With the onset of Hurricane Irene I had to find a good TEOTWAWKI book and found it with B...more

It is every person’s worst nightmare—nuclear war—and it’s happened. Whole cities have been completely wiped off the map. Those that are left standing are quickly becoming graveyards. What’s left of the government has instituted martial law. Corpse wagons make regular pick-ups of the dead. Radiation sickness and diseases like cholera and typhus are running rampant through what’s left of the population. Rick Nash’s wife Shelly has just died of cholera. He wants to bury her properly but that’s ill...more

Biohazard es una obra que se debe leer de manera obligada si uno es fan del terror cósmico.

Tim Curran nos regala un brillante relato con impactantes descripciones sobre el apocalipsis nuclear y sus secuelas.

Enfermedad, locura y muerte azotan al mundo donde el protagonista Rick Nash ha perdido a su esposa y por ende busca la muerte, sin embargo, en el momento final una fuerza cósmica e indescriptible se apodera de él y le encarga una misión, la cual le obliga a ir hacia el oeste, siempre hacia...more

Tim Curran hatte mich schon mit seinem ersten in Deutschland veröffentlichten Thriller ZERFLEISCHT begeistern können, sodass ich auf VERSEUCHT sehr gespannt war. Endzeit und Co. gehören zu meinen Lieblingsgenre im Thrillerbereich und in seinem ersten Werk bewies er mir schon, dass er ein Kenner dessen ist. Kühl, brutal und direkt, so empfand ich seine grausige Welt damals und freute mich demnach sehr auf neues Lesewerk von ihm.

Auch VERSEUCHT steht dem in fast nichts nach. Die Story ist klar, ein...more

Das Buch ist leicht und schnell zu lesen, Thema klingt interessant.
Der Anfang ist vielversprechend und die ersten Begegnungen mit Mutanten, Kranken und Kämpfe spannend ekelhaft und brutal beschrieben.
Aber ich hatte das Gefühl, es herrsche ein Auf und Ab an der Qualität des Schreibstils und des Plots. Satzteile wiederholen sich phasenweise doch recht auffällig. Nach dem dritten Mal hat dann wirklich jeder kapiert, dass die Taschenlampen selten zu benutzen sind, da an Batterien schwer heran zu kom...more

I really enjoyed this post-apocalyptic story by Tim Curran. It was also much more horror then Science Fiction, with weapons of mass destruction(nuclear and biological) seemingly represented by Lovecraftian Gods.

It was nice to see the phrase "nuclear chaos" actually correspond to something nuclear.
Kristin
Quite a whirlwind of a read. I got it on my Kindle Fire and couldn't stop reading it. Descriptions to make your hair stand on end. Scary apocalyptic vision this writer has. One word of caution-the ending does suck. But the ride getting there still made up for it. I hated when it was finally over.
Joecon
Okay---Overuse of verbs, adverbs, & adjectives. It's good to be descriptive but not overly so. Really wanted to give it 4 stars, but I just couldn't. Wanted to quit reading it a few times, but it kept my interest enough to continue on. In a word----AVERAGE!
Michel Clasquin-Johnson
Non-stop post-apocalyptic gross-out. Just when you think the character has reached new depths of inhumanity, the next wave of horror descends. Do not read on a full stomach. That said, it's well done.
Morgan
Great book. I could not put it down. Very graphic and detailed. Can't wait for more from this author!
Bill Davis
This book sucked big time. Don't waste your time reading it.
