Perry Dawsey has a different life from what he once thought he'd have. Once a star linebacker, a knee injury cut short his dreams of wealth and fame in pro-football, leaving him nothing more than a computer technician living in a tiny apartment on a mediocre salary. The one thing Perry still has from his football days is his explosive temper. One day Perry begins to itch. What starts as what he thinks is a rash soon turns into a grisly discovery. He's infected with something, and being distrustful of doctors decides to take care of the problem himself.
As Dew and Margaret come closer to understanding the infection, Perry's health spirals downward, until strange triangles appear on his body. And the triangles are sentient.
Sigler has written one of the best novels I've ever read. It starts fast and keeps going at breakneck speed. In several chapters he documents the course of the "seedlings" and drops hints at their construct. As the story unfolds, the terror elevates to intense levels, dragging you helplessly towards the climatic conclusion. I read the book in a day, unable to set it down for an instant. Sigler's style is flawless, character switching and timeline expertly executed, and imagination wildly impressive. He's created a truly horrifying monster.Read more ›
Officially they might say that Scott Sigler is a horror writer, but in hindsight, when we look back we'll say he's a writer of major order who crosses genres and does whatever he needs to do to get his story told.
In INFECTED, he's woven the threads of a disease, a man who's contracted it, and the man sent to hunt the disease down and find out what the hell it is. So it might make you kill a few folks (your friends and family), what is this thing really? Perry Dawsey's a great character: deep enough and nuanced so we feel for him, even sympathize as he starts to go totally nuts. THAT's what makes this book so unbelievably, insanely scary: you can actually put yourself in this guy's shoes! Got an itch? Oh, man...
In the hands of Scott Sigler, you don't read a book like this, you strap yourself in and come out the other side. INFECTED will tear you through it so fast you'll want to go back and read it again. Not only has Scott revolutionized the way we'll find out about books from now on with his podcasts, he's delivered on the goods 115% to back it up. Whether you've listened to the podcast already or will run out and listen to it now, you got to get your hands on INFECTED and read it as soon as you can. This book stops at nothing to rock you AND your world!
This one is definitely not for the squeamish. Sigler tells the story so convincingly and with such detail that I could almost feel the pain.
If I had to rank Sigler's books, I'd put this first, then Ancestor and then Earthcore.
