Infected review

Well I finished a book recently called Infected by Scott Sigler…

Solidly mediocre. My problem with this is that it felt like something I would try to write if I wanted to try to write horror. And that is not a compliment. I felt like all the lines were predictable (even if the story wasn’t). For example the overbearing father of the football star son, the horrific things that the infected people did, the triangles, the whole bit – just felt like a sophomoric writing attempt. One thing I will say is that it was an easy read, and I did want to keep reading it (vs. just feeling like I needed to finish it). 

I give it a 4/10 for fluff entertainment value.
